Job ads at new record highs in April and that’s good for our economy

Another sign of the strength of our economy is that SEEK's new job ads rose 2.9% month on month in April, further extending record highs in a 4th consecutive month of growth.
Overall, job ads are an incredible 74.1% higher than pre-pandemic levels, indicating labour demand remains elevated even as employment has more than recovered pre-pandemic levels and the unemployment rate has declined to a nearly five-decade low.

Agriculture, Manufacturing and Transport, and Retail have also seen large increases.
