The job market is showing signs of improving, according to the latest results of the Olivier Job Index.

The index reported a mere 0.41 percent decline in jobs ads for July, less than half the reported fall in the previous month; while ads for casual, vacation, part-time and temporary jobs increased.

Director of Olivier Group, Robert Olivier said the figures are encouraging and could point to a “bottoming out” in declining job ads, as employers begin to hire again.

“I think what we’re seeing there is that employers are keen to hire.”

He pointed out that employers seem to be playing it safe until the market improves.

“They’re not sure that everything is just quite safe and across the line, they want some security and they’re favouring taking people on a casual basis.”
