Where Docklands residents are employed

05 Dec 2017

Many of the Docklands residents are information technology (IT) professionals and bankers, recent census employment data shows.

Employment statistics by the Australian Bureau of Statistics show 13.9 per cent of working Docklanders are in computer system design and related services, 6.4 per cent are in banking and 5.4 per cent are working in cafes and restaurants.

Among the number of working Docklands residents, 67.3 per cent are working full-time and 20.6 per cent are working part-time.

Simon Kuestenmacher, director of research at the Demographics Group, said Docklands attracted full-time working professionals because it was the finance and employment hub.

“Docklands is the headquarters of many large banks and corporations. So many of the employees there live in Docklands because it’s close to their work and it gives them the urban lifestyle,” he said.

The unemployment rate in Docklands is 7.7 per cent, slightly higher than the 6.6 per cent across Victoria.

Docklanders continue to uphold sustainable ways of commuting, with 24 per cent of Docklanders walking to work and 36.4 per cent taking public transport.

One in five residents drive to work.
