Accounting Graduate Jobs in Tasmania (TAS)

What to expect as a graduate in Tasmania

Tasmania has a diverse economy. Tourism, manufacturing and agriculture are three of the main industries driving economic growth. Tasmania has a lower seasonally adjusted unemployment rate than Queensland and South Australia, with business investment and the export of goods and services all growing faster than the Australian average. These results alone make Tasmania a great place for accounting graduate opportunities.

Tasmania is often referred to as an island paradise, offering a high quality of life for a low cost of living. Transportation is also excellent and offers a less hectic commute than other states. The population of Tasmania is just 515,000, and overall is a great spot for graduates wanting a smooth transition into working life.

The average starting salary of an accountant in Tasmania is $45,799. Compared to the national average of $55,046 per year, this is significantly less.
