Perth is regularly ranked one of the most liveable cities, with its own premium wine region, 19 white-sand beaches and Indian Ocean sunsets. It’s located along the waters of the Swan River and the west of the city runs along the Indian Ocean. It is the state capital of Western Australia and home to around 2 million people, making it a highly multi-cultural city with a fantastic social scene boasting plenty of alfresco style cafes and restaurants.

Perth is great for families with beautiful beaches to the north and south of the city and the clean, clear coastline attracts many visitors who enjoy snorkelling, sailing, surfing or swimming with the wild dolphins that famously live in the nearby bay areas. It also offers one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world.

We have a dedicated Registration Team who seamlessly manage all aspects of your regulatory and work visa applications after you accept a suitable job offer.  This includes exemption requests for travel to Australia due to current border closures in some states.  Our aim is to get you ready to start work within agreed timeframes and with minimal hassle to you or your new employer.
