As one of just three regional city centres outside of Sydney and Parramatta, Campbelltown is South-West Sydney’s major economic hub. Connected by rail and motorway to the CBD and airport, and with good proximity to the Badgery’s Creek airport site, the Southern Highlands, Wollongong and Canberra, the area is an attractive zone for investors and developers.
The future of jobs in Campbelltown
With a large medical precinct along with educational institutions such as the University of Western Sydney and Campbelltown TAFE generating employment opportunities, the city council and state government are highly focused on creating jobs for locals and assisting sustainable investment and growth in the region.
For example, the Campbelltown School of Medicine at the University of Western Sydney, the Macarthur Clinical School at Campbelltown Hospital and the Campbelltown Public Hospital expansion have attracted a combined $228 million in funding to create start-of-the-art medical facilities and training centres. The health care and social assistance sector is the second largest employer in the area, accounting for 14.4% of jobs in the area, which could be set to grow following the completion of the health development.
With an increasing number of local people holding tertiary qualifications, Campbelltown’s labour force is both skilled and varied; it is also increasing in size, with the number of employed people in the area growing from 65,046 in 2011 to 72,289 in 2014. Aside from health care, manufacturing, education and retail are also the major employers in the region.
