Tasmania's return to jobs growth is speeding up and full-time employment has roared back to life.
The state added 700 jobs in September in trend terms, the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated.
That took total state employment to 250,000.
It was a sixth straight month of growth since the recent low of 247,300 in March.
Full-time jobs increased by 800 in September, following growth of 600 in August and 300 in July.
The recent upturn ended a sharp decline in full-time work.
Even after the September growth, Tasmania had 4400 fewer full-time jobs than it had in June 2018.
Shadow Treasurer David O'Byrne said the job figures were finally showing signs of improvement, and that was long overdue.
"Labor always welcomes more jobs for Tasmanians, but this is no time for complacency," Mr O'Byrne said.
"The jobless rate is among the worst in the nation and 3500 full-time jobs have been lost since the election,.
"(Premier) Will Hodgman promised before the last election to deliver the lowest jobless rate in the country, so it's important that the government finally rolls up its sleeves and gets to work.
"The Liberals must also act to turn around our underemployment rate - that is, people who can't get the hours they need - which is comfortably the worst in the nation.
"We call on the government to make most of job-creating opportunities at Burnie Port and in hydrogen generation, where the Liberals have so far failed to act."
Treasurer Peter Gutwein said more than 15,000 jobs had been created since the Hodgman Government took office (in 2014).
"Such strong results do not happen by accident; they reflect the Hodgman majority Liberal government's long-term vision and plan to grow the economy which is leading the country and creating jobs," Mr Gutwein said.
"Since we came to office, nearly 1600 new small businesses have begun operation and Tasmania is now leading the nation in many key indicators, including having the fastest growing economy in the country, for the first time in 15 years.
"Today's results are in stark contrast to the former Labor-Green government where 10,000 Tasmanians lost their job, our state was driven into recession and people were fleeing for the mainland."
Females led the way in the recent jobs growth.
Employed females increased by 700 to 120,100 in September and by 3100 since March,
Employed males increased by 100 to 130,000 in September, but decreased by 300 since March.
Males employed full-time decreased by 1200 since March to 99,100.
Females employed full-time increased by 1400 in the same period to 54,300.
The state unemployment rate was steady at 6.4 per cent.
The participation rate ticked up from 60.3 per cent to 60.4 per cent.
The nation added 14,700 jobs in September in seasonally adjusted terms.
The national unemployment rate dropped from 5.3 per cent to 5.2 per cent.
The ABS said about 300,000 people entered employment and about the same number left employment during the month.
