SEEK online jobseeker activity increases

24 Aug 2012

SEEK has revealed continued long term growth in visits to the site with desktop views up 8% and mobile site visits up 14% month-on-month during July 2012.

New Zealand’s largest online jobs site says users are also spending a greater length of time on the site, up 10% from the previous month.

“Jobseekers are showing a real confidence in the current employment market and are prepared to let go of their current job security and look for a new challenge,” says Janet Faulding, SEEK New Zealand general manager.

“They are very engaged with the latest job listings, taking the time to seriously review, consider and apply for the jobs available.”

Currently over 16,000 employment vacancies are advertised on and the site notched up almost 2.8m visits from jobseekers during July.

More Kiwi jobseekers are also accessing on the go, with 16% of all site traffic now coming from mobile devices.
