So you’ve rocked up in Australia, had a look around and decided to stay for longer than you had planned. We don’t blame you – the weather, scenery and wages are all better than back in Blighty. But, first things first, you need to find a job so you’ve got extra cash to spend on your travels. Fear not, we’ve done the hard graft for you and found the top three websites for when you’re looking for work Down Under.
You’ve obviously already heard of this site. TNT’s very own job search lists hundreds of jobs – everything from farm work and hospitality, to domestic and office jobs. Here you can browse by location and sector, as well as salary. Recent listings include bar staff wanted for an Irish pub in the Whitsundays, a kitchen porter in regional Queensland, and a full-time sales rep in Adelaide.
Network Nursing Agency
Network Nursing Agency sponsors registered nurses from around the world to work in Australia. By signing up with the agency, which is based in Sydney, they’ll help to find you nursing work with flexible hours and high pay – which means extra funds for your trip of a lifetime. Check out their website for full details. You might find yourself working in health care trusts, private hospitals or nursing and residential homes – they’ll even supply refresher courses.
Always fancied yourself a bit of a farm hand? Want to spend your days riding horses, mending fences and getting back to nature? Then VisitOz is for you. Sign up for their introductory training programme and after they put you through your paces – learning everything from riding a motorbike to cattle work and using a chainsaw – you’re guaranteed ongoing support for a year to find work. What’s more, so far everyone who’s enrolled has been offered a job in the company’s 21-year history. As well as leaving their farm in Goomeri, Queensland, equipped for farm work, they’ll also help you find work in hospitality, teaching and child care. Check out visitoz.org for more.
