The capital city of Western Australia, Perth is an expansive, clean city with the Swan River running through the centre and the Indian Ocean just 10 kilometres away from the city.
Public transport makes travelling around the city extremely easy, with plenty of buses and trains. There is also access to free public transport around the CBD, which is an additional benefit for city-based workers. A multitude of cycle paths and freeways run throughout the city for those who prefer to drive or cycle to get around.
With other countries sourcing Western Australia’s wealth of raw materials, Perth has seen huge economic growth and as a result Perth residents have some of the highest incomes in Australia. In fact, Perth has the highest per capita number of millionaires than any other city on the world. It is predicted that by 2020, Western Australia will be second only to Qatar in global LNG production.
Known for its Mediterranean climate and some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Perth can also boast a booming economy and reputation as an emerging corporate power thanks to its extremely vast amount of mineral resources.
The warm summers and mild winters inevitably make Perth one of the most desirable places to live in Australia, and in 2015 Perth was ranked eighth out of top cities to live in the world by Global Liveability Ranking. Western Australia is well known for its idyllic beaches: over 12,000 kilometres of coastline mean that there are plenty to choose from. There are nineteen beaches in Perth alone, with Cottesloe, City and Leighton within easy driving distance of the city centre, where the majority of Perth business is located.
A quieter city than other Australian capitals like Sydney and Melbourne, Perth is known for being a particularly great spot for families, with a huge number of parks and play areas for children.
Perth actually has more Australian Stock Exchange-listed companies headquartered in the city than any other Australian capital, despite Perth’s relatively smaller size. Attracted to Perth’s very stable economy, international businesses as well as national ones have established bases in Perth, with big names such as Wesfarmers, Fortescue Metals Group and Regis Resources all based in the city centre.
Perth-based businesses pride themselves on hiring an extremely innovative and proactive workforce. Robert Half’s Perth team are dedicated to matching talented professionals to the extremely coveted roles there are on offer in this city.
