What Armidale jobs have to offer:

Want to beat the heat and the crowds? Armidale might be the place for you. The growing city in Northern NSW is fast becoming the city of choice for people looking for a change of pace. Located about halfway between Brisbane and Sydney, it is considered by many to be the “capital” of the New England region in the Northern Tablelands. It also holds the distinction of being the highest city in Australia at nearly 1 kilometre about sea level. Don’t let its modest size fool you though. The city is a cultural hub and proudly embraces the foodie and arts scenes. The Museum of Antiquities is unique in that it is the only regional museum of ancient history in Australia. Armidale continues its proud tradition of working with sheep with the annual Australian Wool Fashion Awards. These celebrate fashion designers working with Merino wool. Armidale is also quite proud of its history that it has developed over 169 years. In fact, the main street in Armidale, Beardy Street, got its name thanks to a pair of luxurious beards owned by two of the city’s founders. If you are looking to work, or to study while you work, Armidale is the perfect place. As a university city, it’s no surprise that the University of New England is the major employer in the area. The relatively young age of the city combined with the students and professional sectors give the city a cosmopolitan feel. However, the proximity to the bush means that activities such as horse riding, canyoning, and mountain biking are incredibly popular and accessible. Unlike much of Australia, Armidale experiences distinct seasons. Although it still gets hot during summer, it avoids most of the humidity making it much more tolerable. If you are looking to work in a town that will allow you to have a warm summer but still sit by the fire in winter, look no further. The beautiful changing of the leaves during autumn is spectacular and attracts many tourists. Armidale is home to hospitals, three major retail centres, several education facilities in addition to the university, and a growing professional sector. There are opportunities for people from all career backgrounds here. Armidale has something to offer for every worker and can offer one of the best lifestyles in Australia.
