Job advertising volumes 'level out', but Victoria records slight decline Featured

By

Job advertising volumes levelled out nationally with a slight increase of 1.3% in the two weeks from 22 June to 5 July compared to the previous two weeks, with volumes in Victoria down slightly, according to the latest employment report from recruitment firm SEEK.

The report shows jobs ads in the fortnight at 66.6% of pre-COVID levels nationally, with Victoria declining 6.1% in the two weeks compared to the previous fortnight, and currently sitting at 55.9% of pre-COVID levels.

According to SEEK, the return to lockdown in metropolitan Melbourne is expected to delay any recovery in Victoria’s job ad volumes, which it says will not be welcome news for businesses and job seekers in the State.

SEEK lists job ads volumes in each State and Territory compared to February 2020 as:

• Northern Territory: 84.4%
• Tasmania: 83.9%
• Western Australia: 82.5%
• South Australia: 82.4%
• Queensland: 75.9%
• Australian Capital Territory: 69.3%
• New South Wales: 62.1%
• Victoria: 55.9%

“In the fortnight ended 5 July, job ad volumes across Australia were 66.6% of pre-COVID levels. In the last fortnight, we have seen growth in most states and territories, with the notable exception being Victoria,” said Kendra Banks, Managing Director, SEEK ANZ.

“Victoria has seen a decline of 6.1%, which now positions it as the state with the weakest recovery to date, with job ad volumes, at 55.9% of pre-COVID levels.”

SEEK also reports that candidate applications across Australia are 9.7% higher in the two weeks compared to pre-COVID levels.
