Firstly Hi all, new to forum and finally after yrs of thinking about it me and the wife and 2 kids are looking at moving down under, been to Melbourne and Sydney, love melbourne, not a fan of sydney but melbourne is a tad expensive house wise so looking at Adelaide but gotta convince her in doors of its merits as she wants melb. looking at flagstaff, happy valley areas, anythoughts advice, girls are 18 and 13 so social scene a bit of nightlife for the eldest is crucial.
Also the big issue is jobs, im a qualified health and safety consultant over 10yrs experience in Uk dealing with all types of industries, writing systems/procedures, delivering risk assessment training, carrying out safety audits and written reports, the wifes a social worker who has specialised in the field of youth offending for 15+ yrs. Chances of work with these skills in adelaide??? pay we can expect, and also once we have paid off our morgage in uk and paid everything else off (visas, shipping etc) looking at possibly having 100 grand UK to bring over, will that give us a good start on property market etc.
Cheers, i know its a lot im asking here but early days for us, got a meeting with a visa guy tomorrow to discuss chances as im 45 and the wifes 43 so age not with us.
