The head of labor statistics at the Australian Bureau of Statistics said there was a significant increase in employment and hours worked in October. The robust growth shows that Australian employment in October was merely 1.7 percent under March numbers and reflects a large group of people from outside the labor force returning to employment. The substantial rise in Australian employment was also accompanied by an increase of hours worked. Hours worked in Victoria increased by 5.6 percent.


An online job advertising platform reported an 8.5 increase in the number of Australian job advertisements compared to September’s numbers. The easing of restrictions in Victoria pushed the employment in October, accounting for much of the overall increase in positions gained. There are relocation job opportunities around the world.
