Working in Australia


At the moment over 150,000 jobs are advertised weekly in Australia and it is not difficult to find work in almost any industry. This is a reflection of the solid growth in the Australian economy over the recent years. The unemployment rate is also at a very low 5.1% forcing Australian employers to look for workers offshore as the Australian labour market is not able to meet the growing need for skilled employees.

Healthy Labour Market
Positive trends in the job market including low unemployment rate and rising employment rates come as a result of the steady (4%) economic growth. It may come as a surprise that the Australian economy is doing so well considering that other Western countries’ markets are faltering. There are a number of explanations for Australia’s good fortune in recent years. Majority of the economic growth can be attributed to the huge demand for Australian exports and lower value of the Australian currency compared to the US dollar, as well as the Australian trade surge into Asia.

Good Working Conditions
In addition to offering a healthy labour market Australia and a robust and steady economic climate, Australia also provides good working conditions and is a welcoming place for migrants. There are numerous laws in Australia which guarantee that the rights of workers are protected with a strong union movement providing further security. Employers in Australia are strictly regulated through legislation that sets guidelines for work hours, rates of pay, leave entitlements and so forth. Australian employees are treated well and in comparison with workers in other Western countries receive good rates of pay.

Welcoming Migrants
Australia takes pride in the multiculturalism for which it is famous and is therefore a welcoming place for migrant workers. Australian Government’s policies and programs recognise, respect and celebrate the cultural diversity of the Australian society and there are tough antidiscrimination laws.
