The mining, resources and energy sector has recorded the largest annual growth of all industries on online recruitment portal SEEK for the 10th month in a row.

There was notable improvement in the volume of jobs advertised in the Western Australian market during October, SEEK reported.

“The Western Australian labour market is still recovering but recorded an impressive 19.2 per cent y/y growth this October, with trades and services and mining, resources and energy, offering the most job opportunities across the state,” Michael Ilczynski, SEEK Australia and New Zealand managing director, said.

Overall, Ilczynski added that SEEK saw its largest rate of annual job ad growth for the year so far in October.
