Why Wollongong?

Whether you’re looking to establish a new headquarters, set-up a satellite office, a shared service centre, or a new base for flexible work practices – Wollongong has the right ingredients to make it a success. Here are just a few reasons why.

Ability to service a global client base

  • Well connected by freight, train, and home to a major port terminal.
  • Strong digital connections, including double and triple fibre optic redundancy and strong NBN infrastructure.

    “It’s been awesome to be able to service really the whole world just from Wollongong”

Reap the benefits of genuine work-life balance

The hours worked in the professional and financial services industries are known for being long. Add the commute and congestion of working in a major city, and work-life balance quickly becomes an after-thought.

Consider Wollongong and you can find a better way. A way to work in your career, while still having the time to get outdoors, see more of your family – or whatever you choose. Work-life balance is a real, lived experience in Wollongong and one that can see you get the best of both worlds.

The added bonus, of course, is the impact on staff. A healthy work-life balance is known to improve mental well-being, engagement, and workplace productivity. With such an attractive employee value proposition, it’s no wonder that Wollongong has come out on top when it comes to low staff turnover.

“From the moment they knock off from work, they’re often home in 15 minutes or less, which means they get to have their downtime and leisure time. They’re not burdened by hours and hours of travel.”

– Craig Osbourne, CEO, Unison Outsourcing
