The Easiest Place to Find a Job in AustraliaTweet
The job market is a volatile place. With businesses across Australia constantly opening and closing, job opportunities can close almost as quickly as they open. With tough competition and little jobs on offer, it seems that nowhere is ‘easy’ to find a job. Can you guess what city in Australia is the easiest place to find employment?
According to new research by a recruitment company Adzuna, the easiest place in Australia to find a job currently is Darwin. With over 130,000 advertised jobs in the first half of last year, Darwin reportedly had more vacancies than unemployed. Brisbane and Sydney joined Darwin as the top three locations for job vacancies.
An influx of construction in Darwin means that more job opportunities are being created, but don’t think this means poor wages! The average wage in Darwin is $92,144, compared to the national average of $77,711.
If manual labour isn’t your forte, don’t fear as there are still a lot of vacancies available in the financial sector.
Perhaps you might be scared of moving to Darwin to simply gamble on a short influx of work. However, the numbers say differently, as back in 2011 a study by the Australian Bureau of Statistics found that there were 3800 jobs available for the 3900 looking, the lowest ratio in the whole of Australia. The Northern Territory seems to be a great place if you are looking for a vast array of jobs with little competition.
