  1. Hi, I am just asking for some advice. i came over to australia as a icu nurse on a employer nominated scheme in January 2011. im thinking of changing employers and want to know if there is a minimum amount of years that I have to work for my employer before I move on. I tried to ask immigration but after nearly 30 mins waiting to speak to someone I gave up. TIA

  3. With the employer sponsored visa does anyone know how long you have to work for that employer? For example, if I work for the employer that sponsored my permanent visa for 2 years and then I wish to transfer to another company due to promotion possibilities etc can I do that? Also my job is on the skills shortage list if that makes any difference. Thanks, C

    At last. A good Indian restaurant!!!!

    Lots of nice places to eat in Perth. I live SOR and found a great Indian restaurant innVic Park called Cinammon on the Park. Reasonably priced, place is smallish but good flow of customers. Would defo recommend it. Good luck on your move here, it's daunting but the best thing we ever did! Been here for almost 2 years and can't see ourselves going back to live. Cx

    NHS Pension

    Hi all, I am looking for some advice. I worked for the NHS for just over 5 years and have emigrated to Australia and cant see myself ever going back to live in the UK. I am thinking of transferring this pension to my Australia fund but I am unsure. i rang my pension provider here, HESTA, and the telephonist said she wouldn't send. Form but it would take approx 4 months, oh and she said it will take this long as no one is totally sure how to do it!?! She didn't mention any fees etc. if I had a pension less than 2 years I could have taken a lump sum, it's a shame that I can't just receive a lump sum :sad: would appreciate any advice, thanks, Cx

    Nursing opportunities

    Hello, I was in exactly the same position as you just over two years ago. I have been in Australia 18 months today! I am also a nurse working in a icu in Perth and live in the suburb next to canning vale. If you need any advice then feel free to ask. you will need to get confirmation from the NMC re your registration status. This took a while for me to receive. Also try and apply to the AHPRA as soon as you are able as that can take a little while. Good luck x

    Anyone else missing girly catch ups?

    All three look like good places to go to. What about the moon and sixpence as it looks as if it is quite big and that we should be able to get a seat there. I honestly don't mind tho because they all look good. What time shall we meet? 5ish? Cx
