Public sector job cuts are starting to bite.
The Bureau of Statistics reports that the number of job vacancies, available in the public sector, has dropped by 3.1 per cent, over recent months.
That is between the end of February and the end of May.
Private sector job vacancies also fell, over this time, but only by 2.6 per cent.
In both cases, these figures were based on trend estimates.
The Bureau also reported, that on trend figures, there were 174,4700 vacancies, overall, at the end of May.
On original figures, police, public administration, nursing and health care vacancies all fell in the three months to the end of May.
However there was a rise in the number of teaching, education and training vacancies.
