Adelaide Construction Graduate Jobs
Capital city: Adelaide
Best universities: University of Adelaide
Low demand for: architects
Construction is one of the largest industries in South Australia. Although the state’s economy is much smaller than those of the urban centres of NSW and Victoria, and the mining powerhouses of Western Australia and Queensland; South Australia has some of the largest mineral reserves in the world, meaning that demand for mining engineers can be expected to increase in the long term.
Currently the South Australian government has invested billions in various infrastructure and resource projects, as part of a state development plan, which will open some further opportunities for engineers and workers in non-residential construction.
Perhaps because of the size of the economy, South Australia is the worst state for architects, who receive 12% lower salaries than the nation’s median.
