  1. Hi there i've never done this before so if i ramble too long or give too much info - sorry! :wideeyed: my partner and i are both social workers and have been offered state sponsorship for WA. having looked through lots of posts on this site i am beginning to panic about trying to find work in the perth area. my partner has DipSW and i have an MSc in SW. are the local councils the best folks to work for or are there other organisations that offer better opportunities? were there any problems with qualifications as long as balanced with experience? (both of us will be 3 years post qualifying when we move out with 4-5 years pre-qualifying experience) it seems to be really hard to get any useful information from any formal websites and we are really struggling to find jobs on any websites that we would be interested in. my preference is child protection and his is community care. Any hints or tips that you could give us would be fab cos we really have no idea where to start!! Cheers Freyja
  2. Hi all. We have just recently got word that our PR has been granted and are now in the process of ironing out all of the finer details for the big move, which will be in January '12 (Perth area, WA) We will be trying to find rental accommodation which is within a reasonable commuting distance for both myself and my husband. I will be working in Joondalup, and my husband in Welshpool, so not an easy task ! We have been looking at the Darch area amongst others, and wonder if anyone can comment on the area, and also any surronding areas or suggest somewhere else that would suit us for working in the areas mentioned ? Also, my silly hubby lost his license for speeding on his motorbike, and has to resit his test before we come over. Will he be subject the the P plate rules as it is a new license, or will his 14 years of (clean!!) driving experience count, and should he be able to transfer straight to a full WA license ? Thanks for your help
  3. Hi guys, thinking of getting out to Perth around January time, are there any bricklayers or people in construction reading this that might be able to tell me what the works like there at that time of the year, as in England its generally a quiet period till spring-ish. Nice One!! :biggrin:

    IT Jobs in Perth/WA

    Hi all, Hope you're all well, been reading through some of the posts on this site and seems like a lot of people have some good advice. Can anyone recommend the best way of finding a company that will sponsor me? I've scoured the recruitment sites but most seem to require you to be have PR before you apply. The closest I've found is a website called Paxus that will sponsor if they have a relevant contract position. The next step I will take will be to email relevant IT companies in and around Perth but if anyone has any other advice (or a job available ), I'd be most grateful. Thanks Dave.
