The Government says overall online job vacancies have fallen nearly 1%, but jobs for skilled workers have increased for the second month in a row.

Vacancies for skilled workers increased in most industry groups, led by the information technology sector.

Wellington experienced the biggest increase in openings for skilled personnel.
