..... however after some long and hard conversations, we have moved house already without even being in Australia.
Although we love Adelaide, we have decided to move our efforts to Brisbane where work prospects for myself seem to be much more positive plus we have friends there who hopefully are looking forward to our arrival. The ratio for appropriate jobs seems to be about 4/1 and I am busy putting together applications and chasing up others which have been submitted in the hope that I can secure work whilst still in the UK however I am realistic. I have also proceeded to approach Australian based institutes and yesterday received confirmation that I should be accepted as a Chartered member of AIB which is great and hopefully should make potential employers sit up a little rather than seeing just UK or global qualifications.
So thank you everybody for your help, our adventure continues however in another city and state. We will visit Adelaide again as we love the atmosphere, access to great beaches and the hills however we must now concentrate on Brisbane and the many positives it has to offer.
I guess our situation underlines the benefit of the 189 visa and the flexibility it provides.
