Employers in Tauranga are feeling the Covid pinch.

Job listings are up 43 per cent across the board as businesses battle to attract and retain workers.

Ryan + Alexander recruitment director Kiri Burney told Heather du Plessis-Allan the surge is Covid related.

"Shut down of borders, we have no skilled candidates coming into the market or from offshore, and in terms of keeping candidates because the candidate market is tight, people are offered big money elsewhere."
