My company has just offered me a year sabbatical...which means i can try find a job in Australia and come back after a year if it doesn't work out!... that's great, but:
- can i go to Australia on a holiday visa and if i find a employer to sponsor me ( my job, news camera operator is on the ENSOL ( the one just published on the 05/12)), can i stay in the country or do i need to go back until the paperwork is sorted?
- can i do unpaid work to prove my skills to the companies i will approach or is it impossible on a holiday visa?
- a holiday visa is 12 months but u have to leave the country every 3 months. Can u go to new zealand, or asia for example and come back?
Lots of question, sorry! The sabbatical is planned to start in May 2011 so i want to get it right and make the best use of my free year!!
Thanks for reading my post,
