Important: Please note!

Please note that Cedefop's skills intelligence based on OJAs is being continuously improved. Posted by millions of employers on thousands of websites, without standard structure or format, the data undergo extensive cleaning and processing. Sound analysis and contextualisation helps avoid interpretation errors and biases. It is advised to use Skills-OVATE as a complement to other sources, such as skills or household surveys. Please read Cedefop’s publications to learn about OJA based skills intelligence and challenges related to use of big data to inform skills policies.

Data visualisation is powered by Tableau public. By using the tool you agree with the general policies of Tableau.

This dashboard brings together all information the OJAs provide on occupations: Key sectors of employment, contracts and working hours, most requested skills and trends in demand.

Dashboard controls: You can select country, broad occupation and skill classification (ESCO or O*NET) from the drop-down menus. To display all information, select one or more of occupations from the top left chart. You can select more than one occupation and/or skill group by holding the CTRL-key. To undo your selection, click on the selected items again. To undo the entire selection, refresh the window.
