Meanwhile, the slowest growth was recorded in government (0.9 per cent year-on-year), continuing a trend of slow public sector growth.
SEEK senior economist, Matt Cowgill, said advertised salary growth “remains solid”.
“After a few months of softer growth, it has now ticked up slightly higher in July,” he said.
“The Fair Work Commission’s decision to raise award wages by 5.75 per cent was likely a contributing factor here — but it’s notable that the most award-reliant industries, such as hospitality and tourism, didn’t see particularly strong growth.”
