We have been granted state sponsorship, My hubby is CNC machinist and Tool maker and I am a NQ social worker. He recently applied for a job in Oz but has been told that due to our visa type neither of us will be able to secure jobs until we arrive and that employers are wary as applicants on this type of visa dont tend to stay with them for long when its their first job. Has anyone else found that it has been difficult to secure eployment. like most people these days, the exchange rate and decline in house prices mean we will only have a little money to fall back on when we arrive.
Our children are 14 and 13 and worried about schools, friends and where we are going to live. We are wanting to find rental accomodation in and around Willunga/McLaren Vale, can this be arranged in the UK before we leave or does this need to be done on arrival. I am all for adventure but for the sake of the kids, would like to know that we will have somewhere to sleep when we arrive lol. Will the fact that we have two medium sized dogs hinder our finding good accomodation.
