Employment vacancy statistics

The Department for Communities provides statistics on vacancies that have been notified to Jobs & Benefits offices (JBO) of the Department for Communities. The statistics do not represent the total unsatisfied demand for staff by employers within Northern Ireland, but are only those vacant positions notified by employers to the Department.
