Alexa Traffic Ranking correct as of 20 February 2020

Note: Gumtree, Facebook, LinkedIn haven’t been included in this list. Although they feature job ads, they are not solely an employment website.

* These are international job websites. As such they have sub-sites targeting different countries, each on the same website domain. It could be argued that this may skew the league table of top employment sites in Australia, as traffic from other members based in other countries
