Jobs in Canberra
Canberra may be far from the largest city in Australia in terms of the number of residents, with its population of 324,800 giving it a ranking of eighth, but it is still the country’s largest inland city and its capital and, much more importantly, also offers a wealth of employment opportunities.Located about 150 kilometres north of the Australian snowfields, Canberra offers a cooler climate than many other Australian cities, which might be a little more to the liking to some coming here from the United Kingdom. Nonetheless, emigrating here still gives you a relatively dry continental climate, with summers being warm to hot.Of much greater interest to many of those heading to Canberra from the UK will be the range of things to do here, with nationally and internationally significant sporting teams including the Canberra Raiders and the Brumbies. There are also many fine arts, entertainment and other recreational venues, such as the Albert Hall, Canberra Museum and Gallery and National Zoo & Aquarium.
A wide range of employment opportunities
Although the aforementioned venues and others like them may have job openings, many emigrate to Canberra on account of its strong public sector, as would be expected of a major capital. This is the seat of the Australian government, being the home of Parliament House, the High Court and various government departments and agencies.
However, the low unemployment rate compared to the rest of the country, along with a higher average income, also vouches for the strength of the city’s commercial sector. Many software vendors base themselves in Canberra to be in close proximity to government customers, while the city is also primed to be a significant data hub in the Asia-Pacific region over the coming years.
One may even be employed in one of Canberra’s highly regarded educational establishments, such as the Australian National University (ANU) or University of Canberra (UC).
