Skills-OVATE: Skills Online Vacancy Analysis Tool for Europe
Welcome to Skills-OVATE: Online Vacancy Analysis Tool for Europe
Skills-OVATE offers detailed information on jobs and skills employers demand in online job advertisements. The tool presents data collected from July 2018 until December 2019 in 28 European countries. Cedefop is continuously working on improving data quality and expanding the functionalities of the system. The expanded version of Skills-OVATE will be released by the end of 2020.
In Skills-OVATE you can access information retrieved from millions of online job advertisements, 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 online job portals and websites that agreed to the collection of data, in particular those allowing Cedefop to use APIs.
Skills-OVATE provides information on occupations, skills and regions based on 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 advertisement 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 making. For more information about the nature of the data and methodology used to extract information from job advertisements, 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.
