Im going with O'Grady like Nic.
What is the issue with CNAHS and O'Grady?
So far not had any problems.
Nic I hink you should go for the 176 state sponsored visa. They seem to be processing them really quickly at the mo and will give you full benefit entitlement once you arrive. It should be easy enough to secure employment with the organisations themselves just contact them direct and have a telephone or skype interview.
Most of all don't stress, take a deep breath, you've already done a l of the hard work and you'll be here before you know it. Good luck.
We are in the same boat as Nic and Chris, except we have sold our house. OH interviewed by Alex last May, via Ogrady Peyton. She has a position waiting in mental health with CNAHS which she is hoping to start in September of this year.
Reading this thread has really alarmed us. We have committed so much to this.
I was just wondering if anyone on here has had a POSITIVE experience with Peytons or CNAHS???
If so, please please reassure us that we arent making a big mistake.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Not all agencies are bad..........a lot of people have positive experiences;
I arrived 2 1/2 years ago taking a job through a recruitment agency and in the main it was ok;
That is until i wanted to change to PR............it all went a bit pear shaped then, but i got lucky, had influential neighbours, excellent advice from a migration agent and a bloody decent contact at the DIAC in Melborne.
In my view, selling the house just now might not be such a bad thing.......the exchange rate is appalling, and unless your move is definately permanent its a good get out!!
Hope you all get sorted soon!
Hi, we relocated in Nov last year on a 457 visa but not via the medical profession route so i cant comment on that side of things. I just wanted to say that if you are on a 457 visa, working temp jobs you could claim living away from home allowance (LAFA) which goes a long way towards making up for not qualifying for benefits. Think this has to go through the employers payroll as a salary sacrifice scheme.
If you can manage renting your home out without selling it, it maybe in your favour. You will loose a lot in the exchange rate but it may not be possible for you. You do spend a lot when you get here the bond on a house is 6 weeks rental so it can be lots! Cars are more expensive than in the uk if you have to get one and food on par with the uk.
But all in all i think it is an opportunity that cannot be missed as the lifestyle is great (especially with kids) and the people are lovely. Adelaide is a great small city to arrive in as you soon get familiar with places and it becomes more homely.
Hope this helps and chin up xxxxx
sorry to worry you, im sure youll be fine, i think its because we havnt sold the house yet and have fingers crossed for that happening in order to get over within the 18 months.
Additionally,i have a feeling that because my specialism is eating disorders, and the ed dept seems to be in the process of being disolved? they now dont know where to put me although of couse my skills are transferrable.
ive been in touch with a migration agent who it seems would charge me £750 to help us but of couse wed need the extra for the176 visa not sure how to manage that - how long does that visa take anyone?
Im waiting to hear back from peyton to see if thyey would extend- the 176 may well fit into that if they do or alternately as mentioned get in touch with cnahs before getting to adelaide.
feeling a little more positive afterb reading other posts and speaking with oh-hed be happy with less time pressure.
I can't fault the help that O'grady peyto gave us to get here, sending things in order not to overwhelm us, and ofcourse teling us about this website, was a godsend. However, if people ask about things, then they need to expect not everyone will have had good experiences in everything. Also, if you're coming for the same or better job satisfaction, then that isn't always possible as its a totally different health system, and they don't have a clue who you are or how good you are at your job. You have to prove yourself all over again, and there's nothing wrong with this but its important to recognise quite how different things are here (that's another reason why i moved) but the mental health is totally different, in models and working practices.
Anyway, I'm waffling, but if people ask questions about different people's experiences, then expect confilct somewhat, and take info as its meant to be, info, not life guidance. Good luck to all, no harm meant by my comments, but a move across the world isn't just about your job is it??? If your job was that important to you, you wouldn't be considering moving would you????? When you do get a level 2 job, the money is good for the responsibility you have.
I agree in so far as initially Peyton were extremely helpful but some aspects of the process got me down ie how they offered pr to me then backtracked, they also offered rn2 for when i firststarted by doing the paper work this end but that was backtracked, offered a clinical role in ed again backtracked but ive triedto remain flexible and positive - understanding how the big NHS trusts work - nothing is perfect so cant be much different to that. Peyton have just let me know that they will be talking to a big wig in CNAHS about extending generally and will let me know tomorrow. They are saying that they do want to support me so fingers crossed - may still do the pr though if we can fit it in . nic
Hi there! Must admit your thread has worried me a bit. I too had an offer of PR at interview last May, which they later retracted. However, it did help me to decide that PR is definitely the way to go, especially if you have kids. I am still going with them, but I have done all the PR myself, therefore I shouldn't be obligated to them if things aren't right. The 176's seem to be going through quite quickly now. In some ways it's nice to know you have an agency to ring with queries, as it's all such a big move.
You are right, I am now dealing with the 3rd Consultant since last year! Wonder why the last 2 disappeared! All the best!
