Green shoots are emerging after the pandemic brought devastation on Australia's economy.

Seek's weekly employment figures reveal a sharp rise in the number of employment advertisements around the country in the fortnight to Sunday - up around 27 per cent.

Tasmania was one of the nation's strongest performers, job ads here surging nearly 36 per cent - just shy of nation leader South Australia.

The huge trades and services sector has seen ads rise by 45 per cent, while hospitality & tourism and sales have doubled.

With stage one of the lockdowns allowing sport and a staggered reopening of gyms on the horizon, ads for sport and recreation skyrocketed by 317.1 per cent - the largest of any sector.

Seek's found employees' perception of job security is now at the highest levels seen all year.
