About GradConnection’s Top Employers Rankings
As Australia’s biggest graduate jobs site, we feature over 200 major graduate employers to an audience of 150,000 registered graduates each year.
This gives us a rich, detailed dataset from which to develop rankings for the top graduate employers for each capital city and each discipline based on applications made through our website. This data was anonymised prior to analysis.
Perth's Top 25 employers
Here’s Perth's Top 25 employers ranked by the applications made by Perth based graduates in 2014. To check out the Top 25 employers for each of the other capital cities, and for each discipline e.g. Arts, Commerce, Engineering and more check out the interactive.
Given the importance of resources to the Western Australian economy, graduates in Perth elected for companies such as Chevron, Woodside, BHP Billiton, Aurizon, BP, Mainfreight, Rio Tinto, Hatch, Aurecon, Orica, and Technip.
For the rest, professional services continued their strong showing in line with the other capital cities, but there were fewer financial services employers - only the Macquarie Group and NAB in fact compared to the 5 in Sydney, which reflects the actual geographical distribution of financial services employees around the country.
