Sydney CBD's Leading Employment Agency
Sydney is the biggest and most densely populated city in Australia, with its CBD running from Circular Quay in the north to Central station in the south, and stretching from Pyrmont in the west and to the edge of Potts Point in the east. The area is heavily populated with local and global businesses, making it Australia’s most important economic zone.
Sydney’s CBD creates 21% of Australia’s GDP and contributes more than $130b each year. The main drivers of Sydney CBD’s economy are professional services, other knowledge-based and financial services industries. As the regional headquarters of many multinational firms, it also provides over 600,000 jobs.
