    Work in ACT

    Hi I am a kiwi living in the UK. My hubby has been offered a very good job in Canberra and we are both very keen to move. We love the idea of being closer to NZ and our girls being raised in leafy laid back Canberra (we have an 8 an 10 year old). Our only reservation is me getting work. As a kiwi i cannot work for govt -i will be on a special category visa which is automatic but i am considered a temporary resident and there is no pathway on this visa to citizenship. I am a lawyer in trade marks (2nd career approx 3 years PAE) -and have completed post graduate in the UK in this area as well. Can anyone advise what the job market is like? I should add my hubby has not been treated well in his current job and it has affected his health where he has collapsed due to exhaustion and stress so i dont want him.to stay in his role anyway. Just wanting to give the bigger picture. But still the job market is worrying. Interested in how others have found it? Am i worrying needlessly?
