Hospitality a top job Image

Recent census data release shows Southbank residents are mostly full-time professionals, while the top employment industry is hospitality.

Australian Bureau of Statistics’ census statistics reveal 66.9 per cent of Southbank residents are working full-time, a much higher percentage than the 57 per cent of full-time workers across Victoria.

The top industry that Southbankers are employed in is hospitality, and others include information technology, banking and accounting.

Local residents are also high earners, with a personal median income of $980 per week and family median income of $2298 and per week, dwarfing the state median of $644 and $1715 respectively.

Southbankers also uphold a sustainable way of commuting.

Some 32.8 per cent of them walk to work, compared with 3.2 per cent of Victorians who go to work on foot.

Some 29.9 per cent of residents take public transport and only one in five residents choose to drive to work.
