Always thought it might not be simple for me to find a job in Adelaide.... As i don't have a trade (as such) or a university education.
In the UK i am part of the senior management team for a charity based Hospital/rehabilitation centre for ex-servicemen and women - I guess you could call my role facilities management, although the title i have is 'Head of support Services'
I oversea all of the administration and logistics for Dining/kitchen/Housekeeping/Laundry/reception/transport. And head the purchasing team as well as being the NEBOSH qualified Occupational Health and Safety person.
But i struggle to see how i might find a role similar in Adelaide (although i guess it would translate well to the hotel industry)??
So.... I figured i would have a career change (perhaps gain my HGV type licence and become a truck driver)? But this would have a cost, take time and maybe not yield a decent paying job?
All i seem to see is that unemployment is up and that work is very hard to find, not to mention that the fly in fly out work for the mining sector (another area i was prepared to explore) is drying up...
Then, to top it off - whilst watching a current episode of Wanted Down Under (an Adelaide episode) they said that South Australia are not seeking to employ any non Australian Nurses this year!!! My wife is a specialist Diabetes Nurse and we were counting on it being easier for her to find employment....
