With more than 30% of its residents born overseas, Sydney has become a major international player. It may be the other side of the world, but there are plenty of advantages to taking a job in Australia: its laidback lifestyle and sunshine being the most obvious. Construction and property are among Australia’s largest industries, with continuous expansion and innovative design proving big pulls for international professionals in this field.

With the population of Sydney expected to increase 20% over the next 25 years, the government has plans for 640,000 new homes, 6.8 million square metres of additional commercial floor space and 3.7 million square metres of new retail space. There are plans to revamp Parramatta, Liverpool and Penrith as well as expanding road networks and improving public transport. Sydney is not a city that’s content to sit still.

Other job opportunities exist in Melbourne, along the Gold Coast and in Perth. mjhr can help whether you’re an Australian looking to return home after your travels or a British national looking to move there.
