Considering working in Australia
If you’re considering a move to Australia you probably want to know a bit more about what it’s really like to live here. It is a big decision, but one that is well worth considering when you think about what Australia, and Deloitte Australia, have to offer you.
There are many reasons why people want to live and work in Australia. We are known for our amazing beaches, unique wildlife, outdoors lifestyle and sunshine but there are many more reasons why people want to come and stay.
Way of life and culture
Settling into Australian life is made easy by the people that live here and the lifestyle. Australia is home to bustling and livable cities, all with fantastic cultural calendars. Whether you have a taste for live music and great restaurants, a passion for football, an appreciation for the arts and culture, or an interest in the local community Australian cities are well positioned to accommodate this and more.
Australia is a multi-cultural society and easily embraces all diversity and lifestyles. As a result, Australia offers a richly diverse culture and is considered to be one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse populations in the world.
Australia is known for its outdoor lifestyle and the landscape provides the perfect backdrop for this, ranging from beaches, coral reef and desert to mountains and rainforest. The rich and diverse natural environment in Australia is also unparalleled, being home to abundant, and mostly endemic, flora and fauna.
Australia is the sixth largest country in the world and has the lowest population density per square kilometre. So there’s plenty of opportunity to find some peace and quiet if you want to take a trip out of the bustling cities!
Other more practical considerations highlight the opportunity to make a new start. Australia has a low unemployment rate, First World workplace conditions, a large stable economy and low inflation. Not to mention our low crime rate, a mature democracy, a world-class healthcare system and leading-edge education facilities.
