Canberra is a young city by world standards, but our history goes back thousands of years through the local Ngunnawal people. Canberra is a vibrant city surrounded by the best Australia has to offer.
Canberra's unemployment rate is consistently among the lowest in the nation, at around 2.5%, and employers are crying out for more workers in professional, service and trade positions. working... because Canberra is the capital of the nation, the Australian and ACT Governments are major employers in the city. But the opportunities go so much further than the public service- there are more than 20 000 businesses servicing the region, from multi-nationals to micro businesses. Over half of Canberra’s workforce is employed in the Canberra booming private sector.
Better still, Canberra is a 20 minute city where nothing is very far away. Getting to work is a breeze on our great roads, free of tollways and tunnels. You’ll spend less time commuting and more time doing the things you love.
