    life in Karratha

    Hi, I've got a job offer in a childcare centre in Karratha WA and wanted to know what its like there as I'll be living there for four years. Is it still a small town feel or is it being developed and changing everyday? I've google earthed and google imaged Karratha and from the images, Karratha still looks like a small town with a very country feel. I'd love to hear from anyone moving or currently living up there! Many thanks, Raveena Sultan

    life in Karratha

    Forgot to mention salary is $58000 base and I pay $300 per week for my room as its a shared rental accommodation. I skyped the daycare centre manager and she said the house is big with six rooms, three bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, a kitchen and two living rooms. The $300 cover bills such as foxtel (dont know what that is), unlimited wifi and utility bills. But mind you theres six of us living there so rent altogether adds up to $1800-$2000 per week

    187 rsms visa for a childcare worker

    This might be very annoying but I'm really wanting to move to Australia. I know this is a very rose tinted view but would there be any childcare centres in south australia, victoria or new south wales who would be willing to hire and sponsor me for a 187 rsms visa. I'm from the UK and have a 2:1 BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies degree. Throughout my studies I had varied experiences in childcare centres, schools and special needs schools. Ive worked with children age ranging from 0-12 years in th uk and abroad (france, usa). I'm currently working in a special needs school but would love the opportunity to work in Australia. If anyone can help or advise me, really appreciate it. (SORRY FOR THE LONG ESSAY) many thanks, Raveena Sultan

    Question about RSMS visa

    Hi everyone, I'm a little confused on the whole Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme visa issue at the moment? are the Oz immigration completely getting rid of this option permanently or are they just stopping new applications being lodged temporarily? :err:

    what type of work can you do an a WHV?

    Wheeeey! thats great :cute: I normally get police checks done when i go to different work placements for uni, so getting one done for Aussie employers would be fine! Thankyou for replying :wubclub:
  18. I've been looking at going to Oz (WA specifically) on a WHV next year once i've finished my Early Childhood Studies degree. I was wondering whether I'll be able to get a job in a daycare centre? I want to get some Aussie childcare experience and look for possible sponsors (if they are willing to) to sponsor me when my WHV expires :cute: does anybody know if I can work in a daycare centre in Oz on a WHV? if anybody has worked in one on a WHV before, I'd love to hear from you :wubclub:

    Is Australia ever going to be a possibility?

    you'd be the top pf my list :cute:
  23. Feeling very disheartened about the bleak prospects of me EVER living down under :sad: I know people are being honest on here as to whether or not I'll be able to emigrate to Oz but the constant "no way, not with your occupation" or "you won't find any employers" is really getting me down....kinda feel like my dream is over before it's even begun....
