Big Orange Brain is a team of two, with software engineering backgrounds and a keen interest in open data.
Our aim for this year's GovHack was to uncover insights into better utilisation of our labour market that the Department of Jobs and Small Business will hopefully find valuable.
Datamining the Employment Fund, Job placements and Employment projections data resulted in two key outputs:
1) the opportunity to connect Job-seekers who were previously self-employed to those seeking establish a small business
2) developing a lo-fidelity digital prototype that allows any job seeker to identify where there is demand for their current skill set, and whether this is a growing or diminshig industry.
The prototype can be found via the homepage link below.
If you have any feedback please feel free to add your comments on our Video link below.
