Description

Seek operates the dominant Australian online job advertising website, capturing 90% of time spent online looking for jobs. It also has an education division that provides vocational courses online. Overseas investments provide Seek with market-leading positions in the online jobs market in Asia and Latin America. The domestic job-seeker business accounts for about 50% of group EBIT, but we expect this to decline as the education and international businesses continue strong growth.
