Annually, job ads were 13 percent lower but were still 15 percent higher than the 2019 pre-Covid levels, the manager, Seek country, Rob Clark stated this.

For the first time in a year, applications per job ad dropped. It fell 7 percent after 12 months of successive growth, however, was still above the levels of pre-Covid times, Clark mentioned.

He said that longer term they’ve the heat come off the market in opposition to what were excellent highs in 2022.

Therefore, positively a release of the labour market, in regard to the job numbers that they’re seeing, but February held up in a sensibly good manner against January.

Still there are ample opportunities opening for businesses and candidates, with increasing rise in application levels.
