Living and working in Perth, Western Australia
Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is a vibrant city that offers a lot to people who want to work in Perth WA, but it is also more than just a place of work, with sights and sounds from bustling shopping areas and beautiful architecture to amazing beaches and restful river parks and reserves. Residents and visitors enjoy living in Perth, with the city being voted as one of the top ten liveable places in the world in the past few years.
Few visitors to Perth can fail to be impressed with its great outdoors lifestyle - even in the colder winter months of the year (which are more like mild summer days in other parts of the world). There are also a lot of career opportunities, with the city having a very low unemployment rate. The low unemployment is partly due to a booming resource and construction sector.
