employment thumb100 BusinessTech reports that jobs website Adzuna has published new data on the areas in SA with the most job openings.  

It ranked the top 10 cities by comparing vacancies in its search index of over 140,000 live jobs to the number of claimants in each city from the latest data.  It also analysed the distribution of job titles and categories to determine which jobs were highest in demand in each city and province.  “The results show that there are huge variations in the prospects for jobseekers across the country, and considerable differences in the types of roles that are in demand across South Africa’s most popular cities.  Even with a staggering unemployment rate, it appears that the SA job market isn’t buckling under the pressure,” said Adzuna’s Jesse Green.  Johannesburg was found to be the easiest place to find a job with over 16,000 jobs advertised at the end of September 2019.  Cape Town followed, with Pretoria coming in a distant third.  Pietermaritzburg was one of the hardest cities to find a job.  Adzuna found that the job sectors most in demand were engineering, IT, and finance.
