In April, the Australian Government’s job service, jobactive, celebrated a milestone moment when it reached one million job placements.
79% of the one million job placements were located across the eastern states of Australia - Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory.
Over 30% of the one million job placements were made in the accommodation and food services, retail trade and construction industries.
Interesting fact: These three industries are projected to continue to grow over the next five years to May 2022.
Australians of all ages and demographics have found work as part of the one million job placements. This includes 90,391 people who are Indigenous, 170,975 people with a disability and 113,797 parents.
