Thanks for the update...i hope you get a good result from immigration.....keep applying for them jobs....good luck with it all...Hi everyone
Just wanted to update everyone on my situation. I met with an immigration lawyer, he said that based on the information I gave him, I had a 50:50 chance of keeping my visa if I left, and advised me to try and resolve it internally.
I met with HR, the issues were not addressed significantly, but I was encouraged to wait until the new financial year, when more project funding would be available, so I could do my job!
In the meantime, I became more and more miserable at work and started applying for other jobs.
It was announced that due to budget cuts, there would be no projects for this year either so as a project manager it was pointless me being there. I gave my notice and have negotiated that I will pay my employer back half the money they sponsored me. I will now have to put my case to immigration, I am hoping it will be successful. My position has been filled, but changed to a PA role which was not the skilled role I was sponsored for. Hopefully I will be able to find another position, preferably in Adelaide but jobs in my field few and far between. Anyway, thank you all for your advise and support and will let you know the outcome.
