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, with no standard structure or format, the data undergo extensive cleaning and processing. Sound analysis and contextualisation helps avoid interpretation errors and biases. You are 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 the 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 shows OJAs by countries and economic sectors (by NACE rev. 2. classification). Please note that the Employment services sector (normally a part of the Administrative services sector) is presented separately in Skills-OVATE. Employment services are recruitment agencies posting jobs for other economic sectors. For these OJAs, it is often not possible to identify the employer or the industry.

Dashboard controls: You can use the map to select one or more countries (for more than one countries hold down the CTRL key). You can also select sectors the same way. To undo your selection, click on the selected items again. To undo the entire selection, refresh the window.
