Graduate Jobs in Melbourne

Melbourne is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities for a reason.

Known for its vibrancy, culture and diversity, Melbourne is full of amazing cafes, art laden streetscapes and an eclectic blend of social hubs to enjoy.

Luckily for soon-to-be graduates, Melbourne also has a great mix of graduate jobs on offer. Being the second largest city in Australia, Melbourne has a diversified economy and a competitive job market, with opportunities spanning from research and education to finance and manufacturing. Some of the nation's largest and most influential companies are situated in Melbourne, with the likes of ANZ, NAB, Telstra and Glencore all calling Melbourne home.

Melbourne is an important financial centre. Two of the “big four” banks, NAB & ANZ, take on a hefty number of graduates for a variety of roles each year. CSL, one of the world's top five biotech companies, and Sigma Pharmaceuticals (the largest pharmaceutical company in Australia) are based in Melbourne and compete for the brightest pharmacy graduates in the nation.

Graduates and young professionals working in Melbourne can take advantage of a metropolitan transportation system that is second to none, with an extensive train, tram, bus and taxi network. Melbourne tram network is the largest in Australia and has of 250 km of track covering much of the city.

Another factor for your graduates considering a job in Melbourne might be real estate prices. Whilst expensive, Melbourne is still considered great value for money relative to Sydney. Unit affordability is expected to further improve with the average price dropping by 2%.

When looking for graduate jobs, keep an eye on new listings on the GradAustralia website, and consider attending a graduate careers fair organised by Melbourne University, Monash University or the AAGE Melbourne Big Meet, which are typically held in the month of March. Many employers will also offer entry level jobs that are not labelled as specifically as ‘graduate’ jobs, so it can pay to also keep an eye on general jobs boards like that of Melbourne-based SEEK.
