Jobs advertising declines, but salaries increase for Australians Image stuart miles, FreeDigitalPhotos.net

The number of jobs advertised across Australia in the 12-months to the end of October declined by 7.8%, but in better news for employees salaries grew across every state and territory, apart from the Northern Territory.

That’s the report on Australia’s jobs and employment market from recruitment firm Seek which showed the average advertised salary across Australia was up 2.0% compared to last year (y/y to October 2019) at an average of $88,614.

Community services & development at 16.7% led the Australian market as the sector with the highest job ad growth for October 2019 (vs. October 2018), followed by healthcare & medical and education & training - both at just 5.6%.

And the majority of states showed an increase in average advertised salary with South Australia recording a 3.6% increase, Queensland at 2.8% and Tasmania (2.4%) leading the way.

Commenting on the job ad report, Kendra Banks, Managing Director, SEEK ANZ said: “As in previous years ahead of the summer season, we see hiring activity for casual and vacation positions up compared to other months. Encouragingly, year on year these roles are up 6%, with most of this growth coming from the Hospitality and Tourism Sector.”

"The Hospitality and Tourism Sector continues to offer many opportunities. In October we saw more than 11,000 jobs advertised, representing the greatest number we have ever seen. There is a broad range of jobs available from tour guides to wait staff, to guest services and travel agents. Employers are preparing for the summer months as Australians make the most of the holiday season.”

“Frontline social services continue to make the greatest contribution to job ad growth across Australia with Healthcare, Community Services and Education & Training the top-performing sectors.

“In Healthcare there is a strong demand for aged care nurses; across the Community Services sector, there is a great demand for aged & disability support workers. Secondary school teachers remain in high demand."
