We have been in Adelaide for almost a year and feel really well settled, great friends and social life for us and the kids however my husband is finding his work underpaid and undervalued.
We never thought he would feel so strongly about his career and what that meant for our life's here.
He works in a specialised area of IT and although there is work here in Adelaide, for him as a contractor the rates are not what we expected and there is not enough work here without the fear of long periods of unemployment.
So we are seriously considering a move to Brisbane? mainly because there is work there, bigger more opportunities in his line of work and it's warmer (but wetter). We feel Melbourne is just too big! We are not big city people and crave the quieter side of life - hence why we chose Adelaide in the first place.
We have discussed this move over the last few months and it is not something that we would enter into lightly with two small kiddies. I want to study more and without a serious income we just could not afford to live here and do all the things we want to, including buy a house without compromising greatly.
Nothing is set in stone yet but just wondered if any one can offer any advice or good interstate removal companies??? Information is power and once we have all the facts we can make a more sound decision....
