Jobs Trends Show Promising Year Ahead
16 December 2013 at 11:26 am

Pro Bono Australia’s Jobs Board has experienced significant growth in the past year – doubling its website traffic and attracting 9000 new subscribers to its weekly bulletin.

Pro Bono Australia Sales and Marketing Director Janine Kewming said there had been a preference swing towards a socially-conscious working life.

“Trends are showing that recruiters are looking for values-driven job seekers wanting to share their knowledge and expertise in the Not for Profit sector, which provides the ideal outlet to put their skills to a good cause,” she said.

According to Pro Bono Australia Marketing and Communications Manager Chris Roberts, subscriber numbers have jumped from 14,000 subscribers in 2012 to 23,000 subscribers receiving the Jobs Bulletin every week.

“One area of our organisation that has seen unprecedented growth has been our Jobs Board, with our email subscribers increasing by almost 10,000 since April of this year and our website traffic doubling since this time last year – average page views per month from 33,800 in 2012 to 68,500 in 2013,” Roberts said.

Pro Bono Australia Jobs Sales Executive Mark Whearem said buying trends in the past year had shown strong confidence in Not for Profit recruitment.

“Not for Profits have shown their support for Pro Bono Australia by promoting jobs via social media helping other organisations find the best candidate for each position – which is great for the sector as a whole,” Whearem said.  

According to Pro Bono Australia statistics, the top five job titles in 2013 were in:

  • Accounting/ Finance;

  • Marketing & Communications;
  • Administration;

  • Senior Executive;
  • Management.

The top five most searched sectors were:

  • Overseas Aid and Development;

  • HIV/AIDS;
  • Law, Justice and Human Rights;

  • Disabilities;
  • Humanitarian.
