      Finding Work

      Both hubby and I were lucky enough to secure employement before we arrived. I'm a nurse and has an idea the basic area we wanted to live in WA - so googled hospitals and found contact details. I emailed them an expression of interest and attached my CV. I had a telephone interview and got offerred a job.

      Hubby a telecommunications engineer, applied for jobs via seek.com. One company replied asking if we'd got our visa - at that stage we hadn't and they said sorry we need someone right away - but we'll keep your CV on file (yeah heard that before). However, about 3 months later, he got an email asking how the visa was going - We had it and had booked our flights - they then said they'd like to interview him by phone, provisional job offer on meeting in Perth on arrival - Hubby started 2 weeks after arriving.

      You haven't lost anything by trying to contact companies before you leave the UK - you may get lucky like us.

      Cal will become famous soon enough
      Same here Ali ,gary got a job offer whilst filming Wanted Down Under but when we moved here the guy said he didnt have enough hours,so the job hunt began ,turned out to be easy and he ended up with a choice of places to work.
      As for me i stayed home with the kids for a couple of month then applied for 3 part time jobs in one week ,i was offered all 3 ,sometimes i wonder when guys say they cant find work??????????????
      So far every client who has stayed here has also secured work in their first couple of weeks ,so its not just us,,,
