  1. https://search.jobs.wa.gov.au/page.php?pageID=160&windowUID=0&AdvertID=322109 This link is for a position with WA health, hope it helps to give you an idea of what’s around
  2. No different for a mortgage and I don’t believe there is any difference for maternity leave as long as you have been employed for the qualifying period. I have a friend who’s country of birth doesn’t allow dual nationality so she has been PR for over 30 years.
  3. I’m surprised you say that data protection isn’t a big thing in Australia yet. I recently retired from the Health IT sector in WA and it’s definitely an expanding department there. A former colleague of mine completed a Masters in Cyber Security about a year ago so I’m guessing she saw an increasing need in that area of Project Management.

    Retiring in Tasmania

    We were planning to retire in Tasmania from Perth but on our last visit I really felt I wouldn’t enjoy the longer winters. We were there at the beginning of May and it was already dropping to 2 degrees in Launceston at night. We love the Huon valley and Hobart area so will continue to enjoy holidays there instead.
  11. I saw an interview with Angus Young from AC/DC recently and he looked surprisingly young - apparently he’s teetotal but a heavy smoker.
  12. Great to hear it all went well and you had the best of care.

    National insurance stamps

    It's easier to call them. I sent a form requesting a pension forecast and they sent me an e-mail saying I hadn't provided enough information and asked me to complete a form with the information I'd already provided! I phoned them up and they were very helpful and sorted it out for me. For the yearly payments they post out a letter with the amount required and instructions on how to pay it electronically.

    National insurance stamps

    Yes. I have. I was able to back pay 6 years and commence yearly payments. The Dept sent me the required amounts and making the payments can be done online.
