Jobs up in December, but annual growth slows – Media release

29 January 2021

Filled job numbers rose nearly 38,000 in the December month, but annual growth remains below pre-COVID-19 levels, Stats NZ said today.

There were 2.3 million filled jobs in December 2020, up 1.7 percent (37,693 jobs) from November 2020.

“However, when compared with the same time last year, jobs were up by only 0.6 percent, an increase of just under 13,000 jobs,” business insights manager Sue Chapman said.

“Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we usually experienced annual increases of between 2 and 4 percent.”
