Australia-listed employment site SEEK has announced that the number of job opportunities in New Zealand’s insurance and superannuation industry rose 40% from February to March of this year, with Auckland driving the growth.

The report also quoted SEEK New Zealand General Manager Janet Faulding (pictured) as saying that the country’s insurance and superannuation industry has a competitive average salary of USD75,000, adding to the sector’s growing popularity.

Job opportunities in the industry increased by 59% month on month in Auckland, followed by Canterbury, which posted a 42% rise, and Wellington, which registered 6% during the reported period.

Faulding added that New Zealand’s insurance industry has changed in recent years following the Canterbury earthquake and insurers are now focusing on employing people with diverse skills and experience.
