Job market in Australia

Postby falcomomo » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:51 am

Hi all, new user here.

So, it seems it's a few years since this was last asked:

What is the quant job market like in Australia at the moment?

I'm know that a few years ago, it was booming in Sydney. However, it seems that now there are no job postings on any of the websites I'd normally use for job adverts. I'm assuming that there's just fewer HHs working on it, rather than all of the hiring firms actually shutting up shop!!

If anyone has any advice for a sun-deprived Mancunian (from the UK) looking for an adventure down under, then I'd appreciate it!

Obviously, I know that London, NY, HK, Singapore might be a better career move.... but I fancy a few years in the sun (I deserve a break after so many years studying!), and neither my better half nor I speak another language, so she couldn't (I assume) get a job in Singapore as an accountant.

lots of English speakers work in Singapore if hot humid days are your thing...

The australian market seems quite tough at the moment but I don't really know.

I could certainly give hot, humid, days a go for a while. It's nice to have an adventure.

Shame about Australia.

I really appreciate the answer though, thanks for taking the time.
