We are considering moving to Adelaide, but really would like to understand what the real picture is for employment for Finance Professionals. Both myself and my wife have extensive finance experience in London at some of the largest global companies - my wife now works for an Australian Insurance company based in London (offices in Sydney and Melbourne) and I run some online businesses. As part of our move to Australia my wife will take some time off to ensure our daughter is settled before trying to find some part time work near home and I wish to get back into a finance role in the CBD once my businesses in the UK are sold.
I've taken a good look at some of the positions on websites such as seek.com and while there are more positions similar to our experience in Sydney and Melbourne, we are keen to find out if Adelaide could offer us the same career opportunities, whilst giving our family a more relaxed way of life without the stress of the big cities.
I'd really appreciate understanding from any fellow finance professionals what the market really is like, how long it's likely to take to find a position and if working in Adelaide would be better than the other big cities.
Thanks so much, Rich.
