Jobs Online monthly report - September 2018

Jobs Online measures changes in online job advertisements from four internet job boards – SEEK, Trade Me Jobs, Education Gazette and Kiwi Health Jobs. Job vacancies are an important indicator of labour demand and changes in the economy.

The trend series is used as the primary indicator as it reduces the month-to-month volatility. Only basic highlights are published monthly. Every three months a more detailed quarterly report is published.

The All Vacancies Index increased by 0.7 per cent in the month of September 2018.

  • Vacancies increased in 9 of the ten industry groups. The largest contributors were the Primary (up 2.6 per cent), and Health Care and Medical (up 1.2 per cent) industries.
  • Vacancies increased in six out of eight occupation groups. The largest increases were for Labourers (up 2.0 per cent), and Machinery Operators and Drivers (up 1.5 per cent).
  • Vacancies increased in four out of five skill levels. The largest increases were for Unskilled (up 1.0 per cent), and Skilled (up 0.9 per cent) occupations.
  • Vacancies increased in all ten regions over the month, with the biggest increases in Otago (up 1.6 per cent), Northland, and Gisborne/Hawke’s Bay (both up 1.5 per cent).
  • Over the past year, online vacancies increased by 8.6 per cent.
