The number of jobs in real estate and property has jumped over the last year, reflecting growing activity in the market.

SEEK, an online jobs site, says 1500 jobs in the sector were advertised, rising 29%.

More than 160 jobs were advertised in the last month, with more than half in Auckland, for work in both the residential and commercial property sectors.

The site says the surge in jobs is particularly evident in Auckland and Canterbury, where real estate and property roles have increased by 46% and 44% respectively.
