Advertised Roles in the Ad and Media Industry Show Growth by +102.2%, according to Seek Employment Report.
This week, Mumbrella covered the news and quoted Kendra Banks, Managing Director at Seek ANZ on the latest report that shows, amongst other things that ‘November saw a second consecutive month of record-breaking job ad numbers.’
While advertised roles in the Ad & Media industry grew 102.2%, so did the roles in the Marketing & Communications sector, by 69.1%.
Regarding the decline on the applications per job, Banks said “We are also still seeing interest from candidates monitoring the market, indicated by traffic volume to the site remaining steady month to month, however applications per job ad are low and decreasing, which is not unusual for this time of year as people tend to halt their transition aspirations leading into Christmas.
“The new year traditionally brings an uplift in candidates applying for new jobs and with SEEK research showing that 31% of Australians are looking to change jobs in the next six months, we would expect to see an increase in applications in early 2022.’’
