Back in Adelaide in April
we're newies here, but we are planning to be back in Adelaide in April 08 to start fact finding and planning to emegrate.
Who should we talk to about jobs, homes, childcare and schools while in SA?
A good place to start is http://www.adelaidebound.com/ Have a gander before you go and it will give you links to schools, estate agents and anyone else you would need to see when you get out there.
Hope this helps
Contact the people who will be licensing/ registering you for work when you get here - you could do this from the UK by email.
Take the time to have a look around the suburbs - I don't mean get out of your car adn walk up every street but drive around, don't avoid rush hour as you need to see what traffic is like.
Once you have found a few suburbs that you like, phone the schools in those areas. If you hire a car, there will be a map in it that is quite detailed - use a phone directory from your rental to find the numbers and you're away. Arrange for visits to have a look - schools here don't mind and if they do, scratch them from your list.
When you are closer to the time, or when you first get here, post a thread on here to say you want to meet up and I am sure you could meet up with some of us.
