jennychin1210 posted a topic in Careers and VacanciesHi My boyfriend and I are currently looking at working in Australia as I have several family members there and we want a new adventure as we're still young. We noticed that Ecology is on the list of wanted jobs and he has a Degree in Biological Sciences and a Distinction Masters Degree in Ecology. For the last three and a half years he has been working for the Governments Environment Agency here in Britain as a Freshwater Ecologist and is currently undertaking more training including 4X4 training and handling a boat. He is also currently running trials on different Rivers as the team leader and is in charge of several surveys and research tasks. I have a degree in Practical Media and have worked in several charity organisations including Marie Curie Cancer Care in England in the last two and a half years. My current position is for a Hospice Charity as a Fundraiser which includes Corporate Fundraising, Event Fundraising, Community Fundraising and Educational Fundraising. We just wanted to know what are the chances of getting a job in the Queensland area especially as my family live there including my sister and her boyfriend. I know that Ecology is apparently a wanted career and we just wanted more information on his chances of getting a job especially being sponsored particularly in Freshwater Ecology. Any advice would be a great help!
Guest posted a topic in TasmaniaHello I am a complete newbie to this site but I am really hoping that someone out there may be able to point me in the right direction. My partner is in the process of applying for a job in Hobart which is great....for him. I however am having doubts about moving out there after spending a few hours searching for jobs in my field of conservation & ecology and seemingly hitting a dead end. I am hoping that I am just looking in the wrong places - does anyone know of a good site or two where I can perhaps find work? His job would be based in Hobart so anything in and around there would be good..... Also, what do the locals usually do for childcare out there? We have a young daughter (15 months) who we currently place in nursery two days a week and I wonder if we would have the same options there? Is it expensive? I sincerely hope someone can help as it doesn't seem too hopeful at the moment! Thanks
