We have our own company here in Adelaide and have found this year already the number of callers looking for work has increased significantly from last year! Agents constantly emailing and phoning and people cold calling themselves! This combined with several contracts having been put "oh hold", its not as easy to find work here as it was a year ago!
There have been already this year though several calls from newly arrived migrants that have looked within their "local" area for work and are now willing to travel well over an hour in some cases to get to work!
What I am saying is research fully not only where you would like to live BUT the main areas you are most likely to find work! I think some will be quite shocked the limitations some areas that are great to live in have when it comes to finding suitable work!
I had a phone call from a chap last week, dont want to give to much away incase people know him and obviously his story not mine, had been here couple of months had loads of great skills but was living so far down South people were not employing him as the journey to work was going to take him so long! He was therefore faced with the strong possibility due to the amount of money he had/was losing to sell up and return to the UK!!
Basically research, research, research and research a little more, its sooooo worth it!
