JobFix May results

2,395 Jobseekers took advantage of JobFix in looking for Queenstown roles in May with 11,994 job pages viewed. This was a 6% increase on the number from April and reflects the tightening labour market. The number of kiwis using the site increased and this month represented 78% of the users with Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington making up 77% of the sites traffic.  

A tougher employment seems to have translated into New Zealanders looking further afield for roles as Christchurch and Wellington markets expanded their search and their share of traffic, while Queenstown based users only represented 16% this month down from the longer term average of 19%.
