  1. John and Wendy

    Day 1 of research our move to OZ!

    Hi everyone, I have just joined this site researching the possibility of the big move from the UK, my main concern is jobs for us both. Any help and advice is greatly appreciated and I look forward to learning much more. This is something I have wanted for the past 10 years, with the state of the UK now, I'm finally jumping ship. Johns background 30 years old, 10 years in the security industry including the British Army where I served as a Royal Military Police NCO, specialised in close protection with a tour of Iraq behind me. I left the Army 6 years ago and have been working self employed in close protection (bodyguard)/surveillance/private investigation/security chauffeur and instructor. I have vast qualifications in security, I am also an advanced driver at the highest level with lots of experience working with celebs and royalty. Before joining the Army, I was a qualified landscape gardener which I continued to do whilst on leave from the Army. However, I'm not sure how transferable those skills are. I would consider joining the Australian Defence Force, or police. Has any ex military amongst us done that? Wendys Background 25 years old, no kids, not married (I am Johns partner of 5 years with plans of marriage and kids), I work in retail which I have done for 6 years, on the shop floor for 1 year and office admin for 5. I am also security trained and licensed so would ideally be looking for work in admin/retail or security, failing that, a full time mummy and supportive wife. Any advise people can offer is greatly appreciated and we thank you in advance. We are a blank canvas, we are open to any ideas of location and careers. We look forward to hearing from you, kind regards, Team WEMO! - long story :biggrin:
