New Zealand April job ads rise: survey

[WELLINGTON] Job advertisements in New Zealand rose 1.7 per cent in April from the previous month, a survey by ANZ Bank showed on Thursday.

Total job advertising rose 4.6 per cent on a year ago, on a three-month average. "Our data suggests that the New Zealand labour market remains fairly strong. It is a question of when, not if, this flows into an acceleration in wage growth," ANZ economist Sharon Zollner said in a research note.
