Perth, Australia is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the world. There is a rich mix of reasons why you should consider working in one of its health services and making it your next home. 



The city - Western Australia’s state capital - is known for its stunning natural beauty:  pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and a warm and sunny climate all year round. Whether you're a walker, runner, cyclist, cricketer, footballer,  surfer, paddle boarder, swimmer,or just someone who loves to soak up the sun, Perth is *chef’s kiss*.

Also, Perth is a thriving cultural hub, with a vibrant arts scene, world-class restaurants and cafes, and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year. Whether you're interested in music, theatre, dance, or visual arts, you'll find plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the local culture and connect with like-minded people.



But perhaps the best reason to live in Perth is the quality of life it offers. With excellent schools, 5 universities, healthcare, and one of the most resilient economies, Perth is a great spot to build a fulfilling and prosperous life.



Medical salaries are excellent. Your contract is for 40hrs and consultants get professional development allowances of up to $30k per annum. If you have over 9yrs years of experience since the completion of your specialist training, packages in March 2023 are $461k (with increases stapled in July 2023). 



As Australia’s energy and mineral centre, with corporate offices of major global companies, management consultancies etc. there are many job opportunities for non-medical partners or spouses. 



Also, the city is an international transport hub. There are regular direct flights to major airline centres Doha and Dubai in the middle east (9hrs), Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (5 hrs) and London (14hrs) as well as to idyllic holiday spots such as Bali (3hrs) and Broome, WA.
