Over the last decade, Australia's strong economic performance has resulted in significant economic growth, low inflation, low unemployment and low interest rates. The Australian economy is open and competitive, aided by a dynamic private sector and a skilled workforce.
The Benefits Of Working In Australia
Low unemployment rate
For many years, Australia has had some of the lowest unemployment figures in the OECD. As of December 2018, unemployment was steady at 5%.
Continued economic growth
Australia is often referred to as the economic miracle of the developed world. Economic growth has continued unabated for the past 25 years, and is constantly creating new jobs for workers of all skill levels.
Increasingly affordable housing
Australia’s property prices have experienced a significant drop, and this is a trend which is expected to continue over the next few years. Most property in Australia is free standing with a yard and incredibly spacious with the average home size 230 square meters so there is plenty of room for a growing family.
Quality of life
With an excellent public education and health sector, globally recognised universities, world class infrastructure and plenty of open space, Australia is a great place to raise a family and has some of the most liveable cities in the world.
Wages and working conditions
Australia’s minimum wage is one of the highest in the world and the Fair Work Ombudsman is tasked with ensuring that employees receive all entitlements according to government regulation.
Australia is committed to the empowerment of underrepresented or marginalised groups. Equal opportunity legislation aims to ensure that there is no discrimination in the workplace and there are numerous government initiatives designed to promote equal opportunity in the working and education sectors.
Multicultural and accepting society
Australia is one of the most multicultural societies in the world. Almost 1 in 4 Australians were born overseas and nearly 20% of the total population speak a language other than English at home.
From wide-open spaces of the Northern Territory to the laneways of Melbourne, the landscapes of Australia are diverse. Metropolitan areas are vibrant and buzzing at all hours. Regional centres maintain their sleepy charm even as economic growth accelerates.
Famous holiday destinations
Wherever you end up working in Australia, there is sure to be a world class holiday destination just a stone’s throw away. The Great Barrier Reef, home to 600 types of coral, is just a stone’s throw away from Cairns and an hour’s flight from, Brisbane. Phillip Island and its fairy penguins as well as the beautiful Great Ocean Road are a little over an hour’s drive from Melbourne. Rottnest Island is just a 25-minute drive from Fremantle and you won’t even need to leave Sydney to see the famous Opera House and visit Bondi Beach.
