It seems the gender divide is still alive and well in New Zealand’s employment market as recent job data reveals distinct splits across industry and salary.

The latest Trade Me Jobs data analysed applications made to the 65,000 roles advertised in the second quarter of 2016 and found significant gender splits in several sectors with men dominating applications in the executive and general management sector.

Trade Me Jobs spokesman Jeremy Wade said some difference was so be expected but admitted he was surprised at the extreme imbalance for some job types.
