Melbourne Construction Graduate Jobs
Capital city: Melbourne
Best universities: Monash University, University of Melbourne, Victoria University
High demand for: construction managers, building surveyors
The construction industry in Victoria is traditionally strong, with most projects being of the residential and non-residential categories. In the past decade, Victoria’s construction industry recorded an increase of over 80% in value added, and it is the state’s fourth-largest sector. Construction managers are in particularly high demand, with 23.4% located in Victoria.
After booming in recent years, demand for residential construction has now declined due to oversaturation. While recoveries are projected for all states beginning in 2014, Victoria’s residential construction industry will remain depressed for the near future. Energy initiatives such as the Yallourn Gas Power Station Project, as well as commercial retail projects, will ensure the non-residential construction market remains stable.
