Orange Proves Ideal Hub for Business & Professionals
The ideal combination of an easy, affordable regional lifestyle combined with access to metropolitan advantages wasn’t a hard sell for Karl Sinclair when he made the move to Orange with his wife eight years ago.
“When we initially looked at Orange ourselves, we were looking for somewhere to bring up children with the advantages of living regionally, but with metropolitan lifestyle benefits,” Karl outlined.
“Both my wife and I found the transition to Orange really easy due to everything the region had to offer. Great educational facilities, outstanding lifestyle benefits, and easy access to three major cities made Orange a great choice for us.
“What I love most about the Orange region is the fact we get to live regionally as a family, but also interact with professional people interstate and internationally in my day-to-day business life.”
Karl is the Director of Finance and Corporate Services for the AFMH Group – a leading dairy operation which has centralised corporate operations in Orange under his reign.
“From a business perspective, Orange is also a great option for both young and older professionals for all the same reasons which has made the recruitment process easier in my role,” Karl explained.
“We had enormous interest for the roles both in a prior organisation I was recruiting for and when we set-up corporate operations here for the AFMH Group more recently.
“We had an overwhelming response with over 200 applicants for a dozen or so roles. Interest was coming from both metropolitan and local applicants. The quality was first class.
“We are only a 30-minute flight into Sydney or an hour and a half into both Brisbane and Melbourne giving us access to the world along with the benefit of living in Orange which is really a beautiful place.
“At AFMH, we have consultants and partners within the industry from all around the world. We feel proud to be able to showcase Orange, what we are doing here as an organisation, our team, and the talent we have been able to attract here.
“When talking to people who are looking at moving to Orange for a position, one of the main things we outline is the availability here of challenging professional roles in international companies.
“The roles here are equivalent to anything you would find in a metropolitan area, but there is the added benefit of little time spent commuting to work along with living in a region that is very affordable.”
