ANZ Australian Job Advertisements dropped by 0.3 percent month-on-month in November 2018, after an upwardly revised 0.3 percent gain in October. On an annual basis, job advertisements went up 2.3 percent in November, easing from a 3.7 percent increase in October and reaching the slowest annual growth since May 2015. "ANZ Australian Job ads have effectively tracked sideways since the start of the year, with the annual growth rate losing momentum as a consequence. The level of job ads is still consistent with ongoing employment growth, however", ANZ’s head of Australian Economics, David Plank, commented. "More generally, a variety of labour market indicators point to further employment gains and a lower unemployment rate. We would, however, be concerned to see job ads sliding,” he added. Job Advertisements in Australia averaged 141618.49 from 1999 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 258085 in April of 2008 and a record low of 69799 in July of 1999.
