Job advertisements in Australia declined by 2.8 percent month-over-month to a six-month low at 189,272 in September 2021, after a revised 2.7 percent fall a month earlier. This was the third straight month of drop in job ads, as COVID-19 related lockdowns cooled demand for labor. However, ANZ senior economist Catherine Birch said underlying labor demand was still robust, despite lockdowns. "Nationally, the proportion of businesses reporting vacancies was still almost double what it was pre-pandemic," she added. "As New South Wales and Victoria progressively reopen through Q4, we expect ANZ job ads, employment and hours worked to rebound and underemployment to drop." On an annual basis, job ads surged 61 percent. source: Australia and New Zealand Banking Group
