Machinery operators and drivers were the big winners in the National Skills Commission’s August Internet Vacancy Index reporting for Tasmania. Ads in this category rose by 58 per cent in the month, with other good rises reported for labourers, managers, and clerical and administrative workers.

Job ads declined strongly in August 2020 for community and personal services workers, according to the National Skills Commission.
