Western Australia… a place of endless opportunities

PerthWith its amazing natural beauty, clear blue skies, record low unemployment and historic economic growth, Western Australia (WA) is one of the most exciting places to seek a rewarding career.

WA is widely regarded as the engine-room of the nation's economy. The State has consistently led the nation in economic growth, productivity, investment, and exports over the past decade.

This economic boom has led to WA having the lowest unemployment rate in the country (currently at a low 2.2 per cent at November 2008) with thousands of high quality and highly paid jobs being generated.

This means that if you wish to kick-start your career after finishing your studies, you are more likely to obtain a job in WA than any other Australian state!

Opportunities exist in a vast range of trade, semi-professional and professional occupations. The State Government's commitment to health, education policing and corrective services ensures there are plenty of jobs in the public sector. There is also a strong demand for skilled teachers, nurses, community service workers and tourism/hospitality staff.

Here is a list of just some of the occupations that are in demand across the state of WA:

  • Auditors
  • Baristas
  • Builders
  • Butchers
  • Carpenters
  • Child care workers
  • Civil engineering design drafts person
  • Construction and project managers
  • Cooks
  • Electricians
