Part of the reason that we created Rover was to develop a tool that recruiters could use for both daily and historic information related to the job market here in Australia. This information, which is invaluable to Recruiters, can also analyze and chart interesting information on the current state of the job market.
As an example of Rover in action, we took a look at the latest job openings in SEEK, Australia’s leading job board, between the dates of February 28 and March 11, 2022. We looked specifically at job openings in New South Wales. We then placed the data into an interactive chart that can be used to spot trends and identify opportunities.
Take a look at the chart here:
The majority of new job openings were in hospitality and tourism. But the top 3 positions, which you can see by identifying the largest circles, were not within this industry. They were:
- Registered Nurse
- Dental Assistant
- Administration Assistant
With the shortage of medical staff that we’re seeing throughout Australia, at least the first two positions are not at all surprising.
If you wanted to, you could also compare this information to historic data to see if there are any trends, look into specific location based data to see where they are located in NSW (if they gave their address), how long they’ve been on the market, which companies are seeking new staff, and more.
This is one of the ways that recruiters use Rover to opportunities, find leads, and grow their business. Learn more about Rover by scheduling time to speak with one of our team members, today.
