Jobs For Youth - Jobs Data


Just like the rest of Melbourne, the inner northern region has been hit hard by COVID-19. Our region has had significant ups and downs during 2020, which have had an immediate impact on the number of job adverts.

With the easing of restrictions and the return to a new normal, we can see the gradual improvement of the labour market, which is excellent news for young job seekers in our region.

The JFY website ( captures jobs data throughout the council areas of Darebin, Merri-bek and Yarra and picks up jobs in the Melbourne CBD and St Kilda Road postcode 3004.

It is a significant labour market captured and provides a reliable indicator of our regional economic health.
