Other sectors to show growth in November were healthcare and medical (5.0%) and education and training (3.0%), the company said in a statement on Thursday.
Average advertised salaries were up by 2.1% year-on-year, SEEK said, with the figure for November being $88,418. The ACT was tops in this, with an average salary of $91,958 (up 4.7%), followed by Tasmania at 79,804 (up 3.0%).
SEEK ANZ managing director Kendra Banks said these three sectors were unchanged from previous months.
"For example, education and training has a strong demand for secondary and primary teachers, and childcare and after school carers. The healthcare and medical sector is showing demand for general practitioners, aged care nurses and psychologists, counsellors and social workers. We anticipate this demand will continue into the new year.
“When we look at our state-by-state breakdown, we see declining ad volume in the large employing states as they come down from historically high levels. There is still a huge number of employment opportunities across NSW with more than 40,000 listed in Sydney right now and in Victoria over 33,000 job opportunities in Melbourne.
"The smaller states are ticking along with some encouraging growth coming out of regional areas. This is particularly evident in Western Australia where Albany, Great Southern, Bunbury are posting double digit monthly job ad growth.
"Northam and the Wheatbelt are also showing good job opportunities. Healthcare and medical and mining, resources and energy appear to be the industries driving the opportunities."
