Hubby is a project manager/co-ordinator on some pretty large building projects, a CDM co-ordinator, expert witness on construction/structural engineering matters, Party Wall surveyor, all of which he's been doing for many years (we've run our own business for 13 years), prior to which he was a loss adjuster. We had been looking at Melbourne, but are now really worried (given the many threads on people not being able to find jobs there), that employment would be a real issue. We've got a permanent residency visa which runs out next year. After a rocky first part to the year, work is now flooding in and we just can't decide whether we should give up on such a good thing, with little security for the future. We are so lucky, we've got our health, a lovely house (which took years to renovate), we are financially OK and the kids are happy at school. We have our hearts set on a particular school and have their names down on a "very short waiting list", but the school won't confirm whether or not we have a place for next January until this June. I would be looking for something very casual, minimum wage (whatever that is over there and not sure if there is much work of this type anyway) to help out/get out of the house! We would be looking at the penninsula way (MMartha/Eliza/Mornington). Any thoughts please?
