However, recruitment was more difficult as there were fewer potential job seekers per job advertisement.

The CJI settled at 102 index points, indicating less competition in the job search market.

CareerJunction said that an outline of vacancy levels across different industries, indicated by the chart below, shows where most employment occurs.

“The IT, business & management and finance sectors are undoubtedly the most sought-after sectors, followed by the sales, admin, office & support and architecture & engineering sectors, among others listed,” it said.

“Hiring activity has been growing within the admin, office & support sector, building & construction sector, medical & health sector, manufacturing & assembly sector, ICT sector and warehousing & logistics sector over the last two months,” CJI added.

The chart below also depicts the relative number of potential job seekers across various sectors.

The current relationship between supply and demand in the job market makes for a less competitive environment for job seekers.
