Jobs for Western Sydney

Media release, December 12, 2014

 

Western Sydney Councils have welcomed increased interest in the region after a number of large organisations confirmed they will be setting up shop next year.
“This is great news for the people of Western Sydney who are currently experiencing job shortages,” said President of the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils, Cllr Tony Hadchiti.

“We are seeing burgeoning interest in Western Sydney, demonstrating that businesses recognise the opportunities our $95 billion economy has to offer.”

“Masters Home Improvement has announced that it will build four new stores in Western Sydney next year, resulting 2000 construction and 400 retail jobs,” he said.

“The Lindt & Sprungli factory is expected to create 350 jobs in the North-West growth precinct, including manufacturing and managerial positions,” said Cllr Hadchiti.

Lindt & Sprungli will join other major companies at the Marsden Park site, including Masters Home Improvement, IKEA, Costco and Bunnings, totalling an expected 17,000 jobs and pumping $350 million worth of infrastructure into the north-west region.

“Western Sydney is hitting its stride and is ripe with opportunity for businesses large and small,” said Cllr Hadchiti.

“Thirty percent of our talented residents are required to travel outside Western Sydney for work, often into the CBD, while a further 35% travel well out of their local area.

“There is a great talent pool waiting to be tapped by savvy businesses basing themselves in the region,” he said.

In the finance sector, KPMG is expected to open its Western Sydney office in Parramatta before Christmas.
