Top 3 Best Jobs in Australia in Terms of Salary

Named as the best place in the world to live and work by the Paris based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development for the third straight year, Australia has a great job market for both its residents and foreigners. With the country's unemployment rate of 5%, plus labor shortages in many industries, it's no wonder that Australia's average salary is one of the highest in the world - even beating the US and the UK in minimum wage rates. What you can earn in the US for a month can be potentially earned in Australia for just a week. Though the cost of living in Australia is higher than most Western countries, many people would still opt to work in Australia, not just for the high salaries, but also for the many perks that come with the jobs - a no-worries work attitude, more paid leaves, and of course, living in the best place to live on earth.

If you want to earn big while living in Australia, you have to take a look at what occupations are in demand and are paying the highest. Here are the top 3 best jobs in Australia, in terms of income earned:

Medical Jobs

Anaesthesiologists, surgeons, general practitioners, and those who work in the medical care industry are among the country's top earners. Surgeons earn an average of $350,000 a year, while anesthesiologists come in second with $300,000, and general practitioners around $260,000. These are just the average salaries, which mean some doctors are earning way more than these figures. With the country's ageing population, it comes as no surprise that jobs in the field of medicine are highly in demand.

Financial Jobs

Business executives in the financial industry, accountants, auditors, and financial dealers and brokers are also at the top of the pack. Average salaries can range from $150,000 to $280,000 per year. These jobs can range from taking care of a company's budget, to credit assessments, to handling investments and transactions of personal and corporate finances. One must earn a business related degree, or even law and economics. Dealing with other people's money is always a high paying job in Australia's economy, with more and more investors keeping the economy at great levels.

Mining Engineers

Australia is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of natural resources. With the world's high demand for minerals such as gold, nickel, iron, and others, the country's mining industry is among the leaders in the economy. Mining engineers evaluate, plan, and build mines, bringing essential minerals to the world. Average salaries of mining engineers are at $160,000 a year, plus many perks including a car and several weeks of paid leave.

The perks of working in Australia go way beyond the high salaries. Dubbed as the happiest place on earth, you'll also be enjoying a high quality of life.
