I have been offered a job in Adelaide with sponsorship. This is something that has come out of the blue and I believe that now that my nomination has cleared the visa won't take that long, 4-6 weeks?
My wife & I don't know where to start with regards where to live, schools, job for my wife etc.
I will be earning approx $65,000 with overtime expected. My wife works in HR so would be looking for a similar HR/Administration type role, part time(school hours). Looking at the various job sites she could expect to earn around $25-30,000 part time, is that correct?
Would a combined income of approx £100,000 be enough to live comfortably in Adelaide, all I seem to read is that the prices on everything has gone through the roof.
As we have never been to Adelaide(or Australia!) where are the recommended areas to live, and the ones to avoid. We have a 4 year old so would wan't to be near a good school and ideally in a great community to mix and make friends. We would be looking to rent for the first 12 months. The plan is to sell our home back in the UK, I expect to have £30k from the sale, which would be all the money we would be bringing.
I was advised to move there myself at first to make sure I like the job and Adelaide! then for my wife & child to follow me 6 weeks later, is that a common thing to do?
If I were to come alone at first are there possibilities of lodging whilst I look at suitable homes for my family?
I look forward to hearing from you, no doubt there will be many more questions to come....
