  1. Hi, another question from me. In summary: What do they call Care Assistants? and what kind of salary do they earn? I was a registered nurse for many years, a very long story, but I did a return to nursing course in Ireland several years ago but was unable to re-register when we returned to UK as I hadn't done enough hours. I haven't really worked properly since. But I would like to when we move over to Australia. In all my messing around I have realised that nursing is all I know how to do and I believe I am a good nurse, but to be honest I don't really want to be a registered nurse again. I love the hands -on practical care etc, and especially enjoy caring for the elderly. I have had a quick look online but can't find out what they call care assistants in Oz even, let alone what the pay scale could be. Also, how about phlebotomy? Do they insist on a nursing registration for that work? Any other tips and hints? ANy idea how I would fare with a work reference dating back to early 2004?

    Healthcare Assistant

    Hi All I have an interview for a healthcare assistant job, I have never done it before. I have heard that if I do NVQs it will stand for nothing in Oz. Will work experience help. Do they have work for healthcare assistants in Oz. Thanks for your time. Emma
  3. We are moving to Townsville in August 2009. I am a HCA, working in a Doctors surgery at the moment, and was wondering if there was any other HCA's who have made the move to Oz and how you got on finding jobs, did you get jobs in hospitals or what sort of setting? Did you manage to organise a job before you got out there? What qualifications did you have? I dont have my NVQ but lots of other certificates for courses completed. Hope there is someone out there who can advise :unsure:head sarting to spin now we have a date to go!! Dawn
  4. Hi all, I have had another brainwave about trying to get out to Australia to live. Wanted to get your opinions. Do you think its worth sending cv's to Teaching Assistant positions I may see on seek and careerone? All of them say the usual, you need to visa to apply blah blah. But do any of you think its worth a shot and maybe a local kindergarten will sponsor or a school? Any of you been successful in this line of work etc etc. Thanks:wub:

    Teaching Assistant (TA)

    Hi Because of my age, lack of paper qualifications and a generally unfavourable outlook painted by a few migration agents as respects my chances of getting any visa to live in OZ were wondering whether Teaching Assistants are need there. My partner has been a TA for 14 years, takes classes in emergencies and also takes special needs chldren under her wing for one to one help with English and Maths. Is it viable do you think to pursue a visa using her qualifications bearing in mind she is 8 years younger than me at 47. Thanks
  6. Is there a wide availabilty of these sort of jobs in Perth? What qualifications are normally required for these positions? I can get a couple of glowing references, I hold an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration and 5 years work experience, would this be enough to secure me a PA job? I currently work at Chairman/Managing Director level. How much does a PA get paid in Perth on average? Any help be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
