As of early 2018, Melbourne remains one of the 10 fastest-growing large cities in the developed world, and is expected to be amongst the best-performing property markets in 2018. Top drivers of this growth include the anticipated construction activity to support tourism and the industrial sector, as well as Victoria’s growing population (with population growth expected around 10% in the next four years). This in turn is expected to spur employment opportunities in the sector.
The Victorian construction sector employs almost 240,000 people and contributes 6.7% (or $21.6 billion) to the State’s economy. The sector includes residential, non-residential and engineering construction. The outlook for the sector is very positive, driven by a continuing increase in Victoria’s population and the need to provide housing and related infrastructure.
Victoria accounts for 27% of Australian firms operating in the legal sector and has a highly developed legal services sector operating across a broad range of areas including corporate and commercial law, industrial and workplace relations, criminal law, intellectual property law, property law and personal legal services. Some of the largest players include Herbert Smith Freehills, Allens, Clayton Utz, Minter Ellison and Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
Melbourne also accounts for 27% of the Australian accounting services sector. Companies in this industry provide bookkeeping services, business advice, accounting, auditing, taxation and financial reporting. Major firms include Pricewaterhouse Coopers, KPMG, Deloitte and Ernst & Young.
Melbourne’s professional services sector is the largest sector in the economy, accounting for almost 20% of gross state product and providing around 405,000 jobs. The financial services sector as a subset of this is a vibrant industry, driven by a strong and diverse economy, skilled workforce and culture of innovation. Firms operating in this sector include Macquarie Bank, Investec, and an array of investment and banking companies.
