More than 33,000 jobs were advertised on Trade Me Jobs between April and June, and the site says the market is doing better than expected. 

“Obviously, lockdown was particularly bad for businesses, particularly in April, but when we really came out of lockdown into June we saw quite a strong pick up in jobs,” Jeremy Wade, Trade Me's head of jobs, said on TVNZ1's Breakfast today. 

“Now obviously there could be a bit of pent up demand coming through there, but I think 17.5 per cent down in June is pretty good, all things considered.”
