I hope you can help me with some decisions I have to make.
I'm about to be offerred a job in Adelaide that has pretty much come out of the blue.
The company has told me that they will have me there within 4 months, so I expect them to deal with all visas and everything.
I've been reading these forums and it has put a lot of doubt in my mind as to whether it is worth it.
I was expecting to go to Germany or Belgium but thought for my partner and her nipper ( aged 6) that although not geographically close, it would be a lot easier for her with driving, language and culture to come to Oz from England.
She's not really that adventurous.
The 2 things under consideration are my job and her quality of life.
If I'm on £35K here, what is they equivalent salary for the same standard of living in Adelaide ?
Will she find work ?
The cost of childcare seem steep and she is a Higher level teaching assistant and there doesn't seem to be any work for these.
I have to then ask myself, will our quality of life be better on 1 wage ?
Will she make friends or just be bored stupid ?
Everything I have read on the web before has been pretty positive until I found this site, which I think is more based in reality.
Would it be even a plan to keep a house in the UK and just do it for a couple of years and see how we go ?
Thanks for your time,
