Assisting job seekers to take advantage of digital employment services

Jurisdiction: Australia

How might we use our de-identified data on job seekers, and other data that are publicly available, to discover new opportunities for job seekers to best use digital employment services.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment delivers the Australian Government’s employment services system, jobactive, to get more Australians into work and help connect job seekers with employers. When job seekers participate in employment services, which includes services delivered online or through digital channels, the department collects data on a confidential basis. We want participants at GovHack 2020 to use our de-identified data on job seekers, and other data that are publicly available, to discover new opportunities for job seekers to best use digital employment services. This may include local resources and information that might be available.

Participants should focus on what they think could be beneficial job seekers, including app development, data visualisation, extrapolating new insights etc.

We encourage participants to think outside the box and utilise publicly available information and data in their solutions.

Feel free to get creative!

Additional Information:

We encourage participants to use a wide variety of publicly available data, including but not limited to the use of the Australian Digital Inclusion Index (ADII) and Household Income Labour and Dynamics in Australia (HILDA).

> Eligibility Participants must use the Department of Education, Skills and Employment dataset in answering the question.

Entry: Challenge entry is available to all teams in Australia.
