  2. Hi All Disability Care Workers I work for an agency that has the NSW government contract to provide disability care staff to community group homes and residential centres. They also provide agency staff to most of the NGO disability charities. So I get as much work as I want. It is great to have a variety of work locations - and being an agency you set your own availability for work to fit around other activities. They pay a bit more than other agencies also. They say they need many more experienced disability care workers and they welcome people on Working Holiday Visas. You need to have a First Aid Certificate, Drivers License and three years previous experience. They have a web site at www.GlobalAdvantage.org Their free phone number is 1800 009 292 If a working holiday staff member works out OK and has worked exclusively for them - they can offer 457 visa sponsorship as they are approved by the commonwealth government. They also help with employer nomination residency applications for disability care workers who have been sponsored by them for a few years. The owner is an Irish nurse and the General Manager is an English nurse and they have offices in Sydney (at Strathfield near the station), Newcastle (for the Central Coast and Newcastle) and Melbourne. Cheers Rosco
  3. Hi All I am 36 and my husband is 39. I am a qualified social worker with almost 10 years experience and my husband is a teacher and head of a successful business studies department. We are at the very early stages of exploring a move to Oz and have thousands of questions but obviously life is difficult anywhere without a job, can anyone offer tips as to the easiest ways to find out what jobs are available etc and any tips for applying.....and any other useful info that people want to share with us will be gratefully received (we also have two young children ages 3 months and the eldest is three years so obviously once we have sorted jobs we wil then get into the difficult arena of schools). The areas we are intersted in moving to are South Australia (Adelaide), Melbourne or Brisbane. Look forward to replies! Lesley and Paul

    Social worker

    Hi guys my wife and I have just moved to the northern beaches Sydney and I have a job however my wife is looking for a job close to northern beaches/city center.She is a qualified social worker so will be looking for something within this role.
  7. I live in the United States and we have a show called House Hunters International. One show was about a North Sea oil worker who moved to Australia with his wife and kids. With this description I wonder if anyone knows which type of Visa he used or if Australia makes a special exception for high paid workers. A) He was a North Sea oil worker based in Scotland. I believe he was an engineer. B) He worked 6 months out of the year in Scotland and had 6 months off. C) He moved his family to a vacation town north of Brisbane. D) After the move his family lived in Australia year round. E) The engineer kept his job in Scotland. He worked 6 months in the North Sea and spent the other six months with his family in Australia. I don't think he came in as a skilled migrant because he never intended to get a job in Australia. It got me wondering if Australia allows high paid workers to immigrate to it's shores. Is there a special visa for that? Thanks for any input!

    Visa Options for Bank worker???

    Hi everyone, I currently work for a UK Bank & would love the opportunity to move to oz. I've spoken to the MD of an OZ company that do the same role as I currently do (asset finance) and he did advise me I have a "skill" that would add value to a company. However my actual job title doesnt appear on the skilled job list so im confused if I would be able to make the move. Ideally I would like to be able to get a visa based on having a skill as im finding most companies I've contacted are not forthcoming in sponsoring?? Please help!

  16. Hey, hey. I'll be moving out to Melbourne in June with the family and have just finised working my way through the AASW paperwork. Do I really have to get a breakdown of the content of all my degrees and the marks I got for each module? I did my undergradute in 1997! Certified copies of my certificates is one thing but a full course breakdown seems a bit excessive (and pretty impossible too). Also, anyone know what the market is like for mental health in Melbourne at the moment? I'm an AMHP (approved social worker as was) with 7 years experience working in a Central London borough. Cheers.

  21. I am a UK citizen, resident in NZ, working on an Oilfield Diving Support Vessel offshore WA. I am employed by a multination corporation. My direct employer is based in Holland / Singapore (but also has an Australian division) I have a 457 visa. In the past I have spent occasional periods working offshore in Australia (20 - 70 days per year, this year perhaps more.) I have been trying to find out whether my employer has been paying Australian Income Tax. They are proving to be very evasive. The Australian Immigration Authorities are equally vague as to whether tax should be paid. If tax has been paid I assume I can claim this back in NZ (where I pay income tax on all earnings) Can anyone in a similar situation advise me?
  22. My Sis and OH are looking at making the move to Oz, and will be going to see a migration agent soon to look at which avenue is best for them to take, but I thought that I would see if anybody else out there can offer advice as well. My BIL is self employed and if I am correct has tickets for a number of trades so would go down the vetasses route, but my Sister is a support worker working with special needs children for the last 2 years, and is just about to pass as a fully qualified nursery nurse. I dont believe her profession is on the list (even with the up coming changes), but is it a profession that is in demand here in Oz that might qualify for sponsorship? The reason I ask is that they have 3 kids, and the eldest is 14, and I think it would be better for them to make the move sooner than later, so obviously sponship would be the quicker option. anybody got any ideas
