Employment website Seek says its national employment index rose 6.2% in November compared to the previous month.

The index, which measures the ratio of new jobs advertised by Seek compared to the applications they receive, shows an increase of 8.4% in Auckland last month, indicating new job ads are growing at a faster rate than applications.

However the index decreased 1.9% in Wellington, indicating that the number of applications received for roles on Seek is increasing more rapidly than job ads.
