Accounting Graduate Jobs in Hobart

The capital of the island state of Tasmania, Hobart perhaps isn't the first place you'd consider as an ideal base for pursuing a career in accounting. With 221,000 people, Hobart is only Australia's 11th most popular city, meaning it often trails behind mainland behemoths Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane when it comes to attracting accounting graduates. There are still opportunities though, if the Tasman way of life interests you.

Finding an accounting graduate job in Hobart

The first place to look for a job working with numbers in the Tasmanian capital would be at one of the 'Big Four' auditing firms (KPMG, PwC, Deloitte and EY), at a major financial institution such as ANZ or at a chartered accountant such as CAANZ. These larger companies are regularly on the lookout for talent across Australia and have graduate programmes in each of their regional bases. The starting dates differ for these programmes, so check out each company's website for more details.

Another option would be to move into the public sector by securing a role with the Australian Taxation Office, which has premises in Hobart, or by working for one of Hobart's multiple accounting firms who help the city's various industries to accurately manage their finances.

Living in Hobart

Accountants in Hobart can expect to earn a minimum of $40,000 per year, rising to $80,000 depending on experience. This puts it on a level with cities such as Adelaide and Perth, but slightly behind Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin.

The cost of living in Hobart is relatively low compared to other Australian cities, with the city currently enjoying an influx of young people moving there to take advantage of the affordable housing available. This has been a major contributor behind Tasmania leaping from second last to fourth in CommSec's State of the States' report.
