The city of Melbourne is renowned for its multiculturalism, offering a range of cuisines within a brief distance of our office – from Mexican to Chinese, Italian to Korean, Indian to lots more. How would the employees of the Melbourne office describe the atmosphere? “Electric, multicultural and professional! We are a friendly team that works in unison.”
Melbourne is Australia's second largest city and was once the nation’s capital. Melbourne’s business district is built up along the Yarra River, which flows from the Victorian Alps through to Port Phillip Bay. The Mount Dandenong ranges are nearby and provide a great getaway from the city. With its wonderful beaches and biking and walking tracks, Melbourne is known as the ”sporting capital of Australia.” The national sport is cricket, although rugby and Aussie-Rules Football are also popular.
The region experiences cold winters with winds from Antarctica and hot summer days of 109˚ F (43˚ C). Melbourne is consistently voted among the world’s top three most livable cities. To view career opportunities in Australia, please visit www.ppdi.com/careers.
