The number of skilled jobs advertised online grew by 2.5 per cent in June from the previous month, or 16.5 percent year-on-year.

That's according to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment's latest Jobs Online report.

The biggest month-on-month increases were in the construction and engineering industry, up 7.4 per cent, and in managerial occupations, up 2.4 per cent.

The Auckland region lead the growth in skilled jobs advertised online last month with a 2.9 percent increase.
