We provide specific benefits that will help you to extend your ambitions and influence:

Skilled Workforce

Our tenants enjoy the best competitive advantage – access to a steady stream of well-trained students and graduates.

With over 22,000 students and an alumni cohort of over 134,000, our networks access the best and brightest minds driving your business in to the future. In addition to this, the university’s structured or customised training and coursework will continue to allow your staff to upskill or reskill keeping them at the forefront.  Quality executive education and specialised management training from bachelor degrees through to graduate certificate/diploma, masters and doctoral level are also available.

We are also well supported by a skilled regional workforce. Approximately 20,000 Wollongong residents, many of them highly-trained professionals, commute to Sydney each day. This is a large pool of potential employees who would prefer to work close to home if the right job existed. Importantly, Wollongong businesses report high staff retention rates, which reduces the costs associated with hiring and training new staff.

Superb Livability

We have 33 hectares of beach side property and Wollongong is a vibrant city that offers the perfect lifestyle – 17 patrolled surf beaches, a strong sporting community and a rapidly growing music scene and café culture.

Complemented by stunning physical beauty that includes the Illawarra escarpment, Wollongong is an ideal place to combine outstanding business success with great lifestyle possibilities. We enjoy affordable residential housing that varies from quaint coastal villages in the north, beachfront apartments near the city centre, to executive residences and family homes in leafy suburbs, and even rural acreages.

Our journey to work times are minimal creating a desirable work / life balance. We do not suffer the stress of Sydney’s traffic congestion and yet we can enjoy unrivaled access to quality public transport, health and education infrastructure.
