Jason Elias of Elias Recruitments comments:

Across all practice areas, there was an increase of 22% in the number of roles advertised. The only practice area with a meaningful decrease in ads was Insurance – which may have been affected by anticipated slashing of the iCare workers comp panel in NSW.

The largest growth was in Banking & Finance, Corporate / M & A, Regulatory, Property, Construction and Employment Law.  

There was a 40% increase in roles for Division Heads and Senior Associates but a corresponding 40% dip in Partner level roles being advertised.
