Emails are all ways ignored as they see many daily. try calling them instead.
I would also suggest going in and meeting with the agencies. It gives them a chance to meet you and go over your CV and get an idea of what you are looking for.
I think the main issue is that there aren't a lot of jobs around. I work in IT and arrived in Adelaide 8 weeks ago and so far haven't found anything. The number of jobs via Seek is also going down on a daily basis. Be prepared to spend a few hours every day searching as it's hard work.
Hope this helps. It won't be personal, it's just that they don't have a lot to offer at the minute.
Bear in mind that the recruitment agencies have hundreds of people in their databases!!!
Don't take it personal if they don't reply. A lack of opportunities for work combined with hundreds of applicants is not a good starting point.
They will call you when an opportunity arises and expect you to come in asap.
At the moment - like others mentioned before - the labour market is very quiet and Adelaide is very 'special' in terms of employment, anyway (local work experience).
My advice would be if you have a trade qualification contact local employers (HR department) via telephone and advertise yourself .
Update: After only 11 days of being in Adelaide I got offered a job this afternoon,I am so stoked I found a job this quickly.
Yea it is, The job was advertised on seek but went through a recruitment agency funny enough.
congrats, wish you best of luck :)
