Australia's job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet grew by 1.6 percent month-over-month to 109,103 in August 2020, after an upwardly revised 19.1 percent surge a month earlier. This was the third straight month of rise in job advertisement, as the economy reopened from coronavirus lockdowns and despite a surge in local virus cases in Victoria state. "We expect outright falls in national employment in August and September," said ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch. "Q4 is also looking worrying, given the amount of fiscal support to workers, business and households scheduled to be withdrawn, particularly with Victoria only gradually emerging from lockdowns." On an annual basis, ads plunged 30 percent.

Australia's job advertisements in newspapers and on the internet grew by a record of 42 percent month-over-month to 89,252 in June 2020, after a downwardly revised 0.3 percent fall a month earlier, as much of the economy re-opened from coronavirus lockdowns. "This is not overly surprising, given that COVID-19 restrictions continued to ease across most of Australia during June," said ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch."After an initial bounce, we expect the recovery will be a lot slower.

On a yearly basis, job advertisements plunged 44.6 percent from the prior year.
