Choose Australia Northern Territory

The first phase of a global digital marketing campaign to attract skill workers to the Territory commenced earlier this month.

Delivered over 12 months, the first phase includes a 6 week marketing burst designed to raise the profile of the Territory and promote it as a desirable and attractive place to live, work and do business.

With increased competition Australia-wide, the campaign marks the first milestone in a significant push to attract skilled workers to the Territory this year.

The Territory has a long and proud history of migration and interstate and overseas national and they have played an important role in meeting the Territory’s workforce needs and are a key contributor to economic growth, population growth and social diversity.

The campaign will target skilled and semi-skilled workers in Australia (New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia), Singapore, Switzerland, New Zealand and London. The campaign will run across a combination of channels including Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and YouTube.
