Introducing the Adzuna teaching dataset

UBDC are excited to announce the launch of ‘Adzuna Teaching’, a small and random subset of our main Adzuna dataset. Adzuna Teaching makes Adzuna accessible to a wider audience, specifically students undertaking research projects and lecturers interested in employment or Smart Data. It will also be of interest to researchers thinking of applying for the full Adzuna dataset. Adzuna Teaching preserves the structure, and contains all variables, of our main Adzuna dataset. It therefore includes detailed information on salary, occupation, sector, seniority, skills, location, and job descriptions. See our Adzuna metadata for all variables included. The dataset represents a random 20,000 subsample of all (deduplicated) UK adverts posted on Adzuna.co.uk in the month of September 2021.
