  1. The last time I had to contend with the job market, I walked into temp agency offices, told my story, and got sent out on assignments. From there I made permanent, got promoted and sailed on for many years. Having moved to Melbourne recently, I find that none of the agencies (temp or permanent) will see me for an initial assessment meeting. Every one said to submit a CV for a specific position and then wait for them to contact me. My background does not fit into the square box to be ticked format, so I anticipate and have had no contacts via that route. In fact, my plan is to start over at the bottom in logistics again and work my way up. Does anyone have experience with getting access to temp recruitment agents? Are there any agencies that still talk to walkins? Is going directly to private employers my best approach now? In my experience, temp/casual workers always come from agencies. Thanks in advance Phillip

  3. New to the site but so many great posts thought I'd say hi! My partner and I are making the move at the end of September to Sydney! Super excited and so many things to consider. Any views on the following would be great: Ship or not? Saw a post saying to ship things is it really worth it? If so, who's best? Should I get a job before I go or contract when I arrive? I work in IT and have been speaking to a recruiter who's been keen and helpful but bit worried about going for a job at a company I've never met! Will we get a place to rent in Sydney? Thinking Balmain or Woolstonecraft and bit worried about the agents offering 15minute viewing time! Looks like a no but can you get LAFHA on a 176 visa What's a good relocation package? Boyfriend's told company we're off so wondering if others have been in that place and did you negotiate a good package! If anyone's got any advice on the following it'd be great!

    IT Recruiters

    Hi everyone; I wanted to ask if anyone has successfully used a recruitment firm to obtain an IT position, with sponsorship. If so, which one? Due to all the recent changes we only qualify with employer sponsorship. My husband has over 15 years experience in IT, everything from programming, to project management and cto. He also has a bachelors and masters degree in electrical engineering. It is proving difficult to fine an employer willing to even consider sponsorship so I thought it may help to work with a recruiter who specializes in finding positions offering sponsorship. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. For those who obtained an IT position independently, can you share how you went about that? Thanks,

  7. Hi, Heard about this on the radio today, might be of use to all those health professionals out there! "Be one of thousands of skilled health professionals to find work abroad this year at the Health Jobs Around the World Expo. The jobs are out there – your skills are needed – and we’ll bring the employers to you. This is your chance to meet actively employing health employers and recruiters from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the Middle East. At the Health Jobs Around the World Expo, you’ll not only find out about jobs, you’ll also learn how to immigrate to a new country, what you’ll need to do if offered a nursing, GP or other medical position overseas, how to transfer your skills, apply to immigrate and actually make the move." Health Jobs Around the World Expo Might be a good way of getting an employer sponsored visa if you're in this industry. Shaz
  8. Ghost jobs - recruiters fight the downturn The slump in the job market has hit recruiters, forcing some to cut staff, or even resort to questionable methods as competition for survival heats up. The recruiters association recently released a survey showing that less than half of the 179 members polled are confident of an improvement to their business in the next three months.

    UK recruiters in Oz

    Hi, Both of us have 15 years plus in recruiting and are on our way over (as long as we get the visa) Just wondering if anyone else is a UK recruiter gone to Oz and how you have found the market etc?
  10. Hey people. Haven't posted in a little while, but loving it here in Melbourne and finally getting used to working and living here after 2 months. Having sponsored me to come across, my boss is keen to find others like me who are enthusiastic and experienced recruiters and will arrange 457 visas for them. You will be based in our offices in Melbourne CBD and have a specific technical specialisation to focus on, which works well here. The Melbourne market is very different from the UK; very relationship based, therefore, probably not best suited to agressive recruiters used to transactional business. If you are great at networking and relationship building, organised, friendly and tenacious, you can make good money here. Also, it's a lot easier getting to Senior Management and getting information you need which is a breath of fresh air from London/South East IT recruiting. Applicants must be committed to making the move already as no financial/relocation assistance will be provided. If you have been on holiday previously or have family here, that would certainly help my boss feel secure in your motivaton to be here. If you are genuinely interested, have proven success as a recruiter including checkable references and have ideally recruited within the IT&T field, then get in touch and I will pass your details to my manager. This is a genuine request and I can share information on what the process is like. Be prepared, once you have an offer, the visa takes around 6-8 weeks to process. Your partner/spouse can also be included on the visa and is free to work without restriction. Look forward to hearing from a few of you as dreams really can come true. Pj
