The number of online job advertisements fell slightly by 0.1 per cent in the month of April 2019, but rose by 0.8 per cent over the year, according to the latest Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Jobs Online monthly data release.

The decrease was spread across most groups (Industry, Occupation, Skill level, and Region).

Jobs Online provides information on the demand for labour by monitoring the number of job advertisements on the main internet job boards – SEEK, Trade Me Jobs, KiwiHealth Jobs and the Education Gazette. Jobs Online is adjusted for seasonal variations.
