Welcome to Skills-OVATE: Online Vacancy Analysis Tool for Europe

In skills-OVATE you can access information retrieved from millions of online job vacancies, coming from thousands of sources, including private job portals, public employment service portals, recruitment agencies, online newspapers and employer websites.
We would like to thank all those portals and websites that agreed to allow the collection data from their site, especially those who allowed us to use APIs.
Skills-OVATE provides information on occupations, skills and regions based on established international classifications: ISCO-08 for occupations, NUTS-2 for regions, ESCO version 1 for skills and NACE rev. 2 for sectors.
Important: Please note!
Cedefop has developed information in Skills-OVATE using a robust methodology. The underlying online job vacancy data are already of high quality, but they need more work to clean and classify them. More analysis and testing are also necessary for Skills-OVATE to provide sound evidence to inform policy developments. For more information about the nature of the data and methodology used to extract information from vacancies, please read this publication, or consult the FAQs.
Please use the findings as indicative. Skills-OVATE’s aims at this stage to show the data’s potential and provide information to help interpret labour market developments. Cedefop does not assume any responsibility for policy decisions based on information presented in the tool.
