 Parkes Shire's local employment opportunities are growing, with over 6,000 jobs in the Shire (2021 census) and more being created with the delivery of the Special Activation Precinct.

For those wanting to work locally, there is an excellent opportunity to enjoy a work-life balance. Most residents live less than five minutes from work, allowing you to drop home during your lunch break or make plans straight after work without traffic.

If you are looking for work further afield, Parkes is close to Forbes, Condobolin and Orange, where there is an array of additional job opportunities. You can rest assured that your commute time will still be less than the average Sydneysider.
