Job listings are continuing to rise, despite the Covid-19 restrictions and Auckland's lockdown. 

Trade Me job listings are up by nearly a half in the third quarter 

Enterprise Recruitment chief operating officer Ian McPherson told Tim Dower there's a shortage of supply in most sectors, at most levels. 

He says that's because the borders are shut, and international students and travellers can't come in. 

"The lack of ability to bring in skills, it's all creating this storm of demand outstripping supply."
