We are a family of four living in the not so sunny south west country! Up to Feb 2011 we were just muddling along with life when after a couple of life changes my husband starting thinking about moving to another country! After a couple of options we decided on Australia - my hubby is South african born and missed the southern hemisphere! He made a couple of enquiries and was offered a potential job in Adelaide in April and we visited last week!!
We really liked it even though it was bizarrely colder than home - but it is Autumn and it was good to see the seasons!Its a beautiful city! We got back and he was formally offered a job!! I t has all happened really fast.
So now the hard work begins..... He has to jump through a couple of professional hoops with work/ membership then they will start the employer sponsorship visa process, I think? Trying not to get too carried away as it seems like a long process and we can already see pitfalls- Our son has Asperghers- but doesn't need much support educationally but I am sure there will be a visa issue! Haven't figured out what I am going to do as I am a conservator ( mainly sculpture) but I am willing to retrain. Well that's it - this forum looks really useful and am looking forward to keeping in touch
