  1. Hi , I'm a Physiotherapist, currently working in regional QLD, on 457 visa. I've been on 457 visa for almost 2 years but I've recently changed my employer. My new employers are happy to sponsor me on RSMS visa( 187). I needed some information on RSMS visa, about Physiotherapy, as an occupation. I wont be eligible for Transition stream, as I haven't completed 2 years with my current employer. I have Limited Registration to work as a Physio from AHPRA. Limited registration from AHPRA was the basis for my 457 visa. Physiotherapy as an occupation is not mentioned in the legislative instrument. As stated on the DIBP webpage , skill requirement for direct stream “ if your occupation is not on the relevant legislative instrument, you must demonstrate that you have the qualifications listed in ANZSCO as necessary to perform the tasks of your occupation". Below is the brief description for Physiotherapist ANZSCO list : UNIT GROUP 2525 PHYSIOTHERAPISTS PHYSIOTHERAPISTS assess, treat and prevent disorders in human movement caused by injury or disease. Indicative Skill Level: In Australia and New Zealand: Registration or licensing is required. Occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1). I'm still undergoing physiotherapy assessment process through Australian Physiotherapy council, to be competent to work as a fully licensed Physiotherapist. Hence I wont be able to undergo skill assessment, if that's a requirement for Direct entry stream for physiotherapy as an occupation. I wanted to know if my limited registration( which currently allows me to work) be valid for RSMS : direct entry stream as it was valid for my 457 visa ? I have been asking around from some guidance but haven't received any yet. It would be it big help if someone could help me with this
  2. We do need applicants to have full AHPRA registration but are able to offer sponsorship for the right candidate. Could be ideal for someone who is locuming on a working holiday visa and thinking about staying: https://cerebralpalsy.mercury.com.au/ViewPosition.aspx?id=H+VJo7z+MKM=&jbc=ere

    Physio Jobs

    Hi, Would it be possible for my partner to find Physio work in Australia if she is not registered? She is a two year qualified physio working in a hospital in London and we are coming out on a WHV in a couple of months time. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  4. Good Evening, I am lucky enough to be going through a job process for a move to Melbourne, with a company who are going to sponsor me for visa's and things . The wage may not support my family totally, so my wife will need to continue her professional career as a Physiotherapist. We know a little bit about the requirements but we are looking for persons who are physios in Australia especially the Melbourne area, that she can use as a sounding board for questions relating to prospects, salary, qualifications etc. If there are someone out there that can assist please get in touch.
  5. Hi there, I am currently a 3rd year physiotherapy student at the university of Coventry in the UK. I already have a permanent visa and am intending on joining my family in June shortly after I qualify, who now reside on the Mornington Peninsula. On graduating I will be applying for equivalency of my degree with the Australian association of physiotherapy. I was wondering if anybody had any opportunities around this area for a newly qualified physio. I have a range of experience I have collected whilst at university as well as working voluntarily for local sporting teams. Many Thanks Elycia

    Accountant or physio

    I currently have only one semester to go before I complete my accounting degree. However, in order to get a proper accounting job I would still need to pursue the CA/CPA designation. That is another 3 more years of study. Without the CA/CPA designation, the salary would be quite low... not that it increases that much after you have done your CA/CPA either. So, I am wondering if it is worth pursuing an accounting career. My other option is to enrol in a degree in physiotherapy. The reason why I am comtemplating doing this is because my current GPA is very high and I am eligible to apply for physiotherapy which is a very competitive course. I wouldn't get the chance to do physiotherapy again. So, is it worth doing physiotherapy or is the job market saturated for physios? The reason why I would like to do physiotherapy is because I am very interested in learning physiology and studying other health related courses. Other pluses of physiotherapy for me include the flexibility of hours it provides and also from what I have researched physiotherapists earn more than accountants. Correct me if I am wrong. In short, is it really worth doing physiotherapy in Australia and considering it as a future career path?

  8. Hi, My wife and I are in the early stages of moving to Oz. Initially we have decided to move to SA, as we feel this would best suit us. My wife is a qualified Physio so we are hopeful she will get a job, although some of you may know better? As for myself i think it will be a little trickier to get a job. I have previously served in the Royal Navy but since leaving in 2006 I got myself a degree in PE and now work in education, however, i am not a qualified teacher. I have seen other posts regarding Teaching Assistants and the difficulties faced in getting a job and the low wages so i am sceptical of going out there and getting a job in a school. I am prepared to do anything (within reason) ie, admin/office, retail, leisure etc. So i was just wondering if anyone has been in the same situation or has any advice. How easy is it to get a job once you are there? Any help/advice would me greatly appreciated! Regards, Craig
  9. Hi, First post on here so hi, My wife and I are considering a move to Brisbane within the next 4 years, My wife is a qualified civil engineer so is on the demand list I am however looking to retrain as I do not have any formal qualifications, my options are a physiotherapist, tree surgeon or maybe even a locksmith though not sure on the oz qualifications of the latter. My enquiry is into whether there is anybody here that is employed within any of these professions and any suggestion on which of these routes would provide a better chance of employment. any help would be much appreciated

    Physio Registration

    Hi, I'm a UK trained and based physio looking to relocate to WA with my husband ASAP. We visited recently on our honeymoon and fell in love with WA. We are at the very beginning of the visa and application process and have already realised that i need permanent registration as a physio in order to work in WA. Has anyone gone through the NZ registration route, in order to automatically get WA registration via the trans-tasman agreement, and do you have any tips for us? Or, has anyone been through the examination skills assessment for physio? Thanks, helen

  12. Dear all, I am an OT moving out to Oz around October time and wondered whether there were any other allied health professionals out there who have gone through the whole process already or whether anyone had any advice / tips?? I have noticed there are alot of nurses moving over to Oz, but havent really seen any OT's or physiotherapists on here. I have posted a thread before on Occupational Therapy in Australia, but had no replies. Be really good to hear from someone!!
  13. Hi I'm a 37 year old graduate in Physio and have a 12 year old daughter. Any Physios out there looking for work or got work in Oz that can offer advice or in the same boat. I'm going to need a sponsor though I understand physios are in demand. Not sure if that includes new grads with no experience though. Very few jobs available in UK for grads in the NHS. Any heatlh professionals out there ?? Della
