Most places want Part time casual, so if thats ok for you then you will be ok! I got offered a few pt time jobs and am old enough. But I have always kept up as I have worked through out after training in the early 80s! Get a "p".d off when someone says to the girl I work with "will she know how to do it" I usually answer I think so only been doing it for about 25 yrs!!!!!
As for award rates that is waht you will get more than likely unless you find a generous boss
thanks for replying , its a great help to know there are positions out there, my other half is jumping with excitememnt saying he can retire and fish all day !!! (wishfull thinking) How long have you been in adelaide ? any other tips or advice would be gratefully recieved
Are there plenty of jobs for hairdressers in Adelaide? I have a lot of experience and have recently been teaching in a local college over here in the uk. Can I be cheeky and ask what the average hairdressers wage is over in Oz?
As a casual it is just under $19 an hour, if you are permanent it is less.

You might have started the thread, but it doesnt make it "yours", threads always go off on a tangent, thats why they are called threads.
And if you think about it answering another hairdressers question isnt exactly going to get me any business is it??? Which incidently isnt my reason for answering...it happens to be something I know about and can help with.
Oh and what is my own site?? Please let me know as I didnt know I had one!

OMG!!!!!!! As she says, Sarah is only answering what has been asked, which I believe is known as being friendly and helpful, which I also believe is the aim of this whole website.
Thank you for answering my question, I do seem to have put the cat amongst the pigeons don't I ??!! Useful information, my husband and I are considering starting the application process, but are also planning to come over there on holiday as well. We really like the look of Adelaide, can't wait to see what the place is like!
Thanks very much again,
