Parramatta’s job profile is becoming increasingly more professional with 60% of its population now working in professional, administrative or management roles.

Parramatta is experiencing a shift towards a modernised and integrated core of educational precincts in the heart of the City.​

Leading this is the educational hub at 1 Parramatta Square, which creates opportunities for collaboration and industry-focused research between Western Sydney University students, PwC and Sydney Water. ​

The planning of future education and training precincts is set to follow this model of collaboration between industry and academia with hubs being incubated within the CBD, Rydalmere and Westmead.​

One such hub in the Parramatta CBD is the $280 million world-class 19-storey engineering innovation hub joint venture between Western Sydney University and the University of NSW, scheduled to open in 2021. ​
