Wollongong – perfect mix of location and lifestyle

Adorned by rainforest-covered escarpment and the stunning golden beaches of the South Coast, NSW’s third-largest city is a fun, vibrant and delicious urban centre that offers diverse appeal. Dial up the adventure by going skydiving, playing golf or cycling, or discover beautiful botanic gardens, relaxed cafes and restaurants, and a thriving arts scene.

The city also has a vibrant arts precinct, centred on the Wollongong Art Gallery, one of Australia’s finest regional art galleries that houses a large collection of contemporary, Aboriginal, Asian and colonial artworks. At the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, there are three venues that host theatre, music and comedy.

Enjoy a variety of work

I really enjoy the variety of work and being a part of an experienced team. I’ve had the opportunity to work on interesting projects and develop valuable skills while in the early stage of my career.

Live & work locally

I’ve been working in Wollongong with AAM for over 15 years and wouldn’t be anywhere else. While AAM is a big company with offices around the country and now around the world, it still feels like a local operation. Best of all, I get to be home with my family each night.
