The Jobs Monitor is updated daily with the job-creation and job-loss activity of thousands of named
organisations experiencing dynamic change.

The jobs data is gathered from rigorous media monitoring across 200,000 sources; data analysis of
employment moves within organisations that are growing, downsizing or restructuring; and other
relevant research.

The data, which has been compiled continuously since 2008, reflects real fluctuations in the jobs market and is not based on sampling, speculative forecasts or subjective employer sentiment about the future.

Since it was first published, more than eight million job gains and losses have been detected and recorded across many thousands of organisations.
