ITCRA launches LabourInsight in NZ with Burning Glass

The Information Technology & Contract Recruitment Association (ITCRA) has formed a partnership with New Zealand’s Burning Glass to facilitate deeper analysis of its SkillsMatch data.

ITCRA CEO Julie Mills said ITCRA had already found the data provided by Burning Glass invaluable in responding to several government submissions and the New Zealand ICT Qualifications Review and in major conference presentations.

Burning Glass is a US-based global company which uses technology to match people with jobs.

Mills announced the partnership in Auckland to New Zealand recruitment organisations at the launch of a LabourInsight ANZ program – powered by Burning Glass - an advanced analytic application that allows users to analyse, trend, and compare real-time jobs data on a regional, statewide or national basis.

“To complement the unique dataset that is SkillsMatch and, more importantly to map even more precisely the trends in talent requirements, emerging disciplines as well as very localised tracking of employer needs, ITCRA has now partnered with Burning Glass to add deeper analysis to the SkillsMatch data,” Mills said.

“During the lunch the attendees were keen to see the system in action and the real time examples of aggregated data from more than 1,000 sites in New Zealand certainly had the attendees asking lots of Josh Huisman, Research Lead, Asia Pacific who was keen to respond to the queries of the attendees.”

Mills said that one attendee commented: “The key value will be the ability to support clients with workforce development alternatives in real time, as recruitment organisations play an increasingly important role in managing and profiling local talent to meet both the current and future needs of business.”

“Many employers do not interact as closely with available talent as recruiters do, making it difficult for them to know exactly which roles are truly in demand and which skills those roles require from the talent pool,” Mills said.

“Government data can be months or even years old, and is at a level of aggregation too broad to be meaningful. I believe LabourInsight ANZl fills a labour intelligence gap as it pieces together a comprehensive picture of national and local hiring activity that is driving the economies of Australia and New Zealand.

“Those in attendance were the first to view data, updated daily, of many thousands of currently available unique roles – and with several companies signing up to the two week trial I think that is evidence enough that this resource will fill a much needed knowledge gap,” Mills said.
