Regional Job Vacancy Map

Would you move your entire life for your dream job? Or is it sitting on your doorstep?

Check out our interactive Regional Jobs Vacancy Map below to find out what jobs are available in your region. 

How does it work?

Click on one of the 37 regions on the map of Australia. This will bring up the number of jobs currently being advertised and the categories they fall into. To dig deeper, click on a category at bottom left to see a breakdown of advertised jobs in that category specific to the selected region.

Where does my LGA fit?

This tool collates data from the Federal Government’s Internet Vacancy Index (IVI) which is released monthly by Jobs and Skills Australia through its Internet Vacancy Index data series. Here’s some information about the 37 “best fit” regions, as defined by the Department of Jobs and Small Business.

We have prepared lists to show which Local Government Areas (LGAs) are in each of the Internet Vacancy Index (IVI) Regions of the map. The regions do not always map well across LGAs as they have been designed under a different geography. So in preparing the list we have looked at a simple ‘best fit’ as to which region an LGA best fits into. Vacancies in LGAs which overlap different IVI Regions will have some of the characteristics of both IVI Regions. Click the buttons below to see the lists alphabetised by LGA or Region.


The IVI is based on a count of online job advertisements newly lodged on SEEKCareerOne and Australian JobSearch during the month.

If you find a vacancy on the map that interests you, try searching one of these job sites by location.
