hi just to let you know what happened with us
the mental health services in south australia are currently merging so they all come under one authority, therefore recruitment has been put on a back burner for a while. we arrived 21 st september, jason applied for a post at beginning of sept with dassa, he was offered an interview in mid november, so not fast acting, in the meantime he had applied and got another job at the repatriation hospital. i would say the things to look out for are 1) whilst uk agencies try their best they do not know the full set up here and are also unaware of the geographical impl;ications of some of these positions. we live in aldinga and to work in northern adelaide would be a 2 hour journey, what looks close on a map sometimes takes a long time due to the vast amount of traffic lights and the speed limits. so be wary you accept jobs.
2) we contacted dassa directly but it took many phone calls and prodding to get any where so be aware
hope this helps any questions just shout as we are finally back on line now
good luck Amanda
