Not too sure about teaching jobs but there seem to be nurseries popping up everywhere at the moment. I think you would find a driving job pretty easy over here and would maybe go for a forklifting job so you could have more sociable hours to enjoy life more.
If you want to be near the beaches You could go from grange all the way down to Aldinga. I think would depend more on where you will be working. We are currently about 10 minutes drive from Brighton beach but we are moving to Seaford area this year.
My job is just north of the city but will still only be about 40 minutes drive which I don’t mind. I would definitely rent for a little while and just explore areas to see what feels best for you.
We prefer the Southern suburbs rather than the North but it’s all personal preference.
Me and my family moved to Adelaide around 2 and a half years ago and we had never been here or knew anything about SA other than what we had read. We have a 21 year old and 10 year old daughter who live here with us and a 25 year old son who is currently in Sydney.
I’m an Electrician so similar type of role that you are looking into. I have to say that jobs in the construction industry is booming at the moment whether you work in commercial or domestic. The jobs market is different over here where it’s better to get out there and introduce yourself to companies rather than doing it on line. You will have to get a license to work over here also but you will probably get to that when you are closer to the move.
We haven’t really been anywhere else in Australia but we love it in Adelaide and we are looking at building our first home in Seaford this year which is not far from Aldinga. We have lived just about 15minutes from the city for the last couple of years and like it around here but a little bit too expensive.
We prefer the south of the city rather than North. The beaches are really good and much quieter. The roads and connections are pretty decent and improving all the time.
Adelaide is classed as a small city and it’s very easy to get around and public transport is very good. We never really struggle for things to do.
Hopefully this helps in some way and I’m sure there will be other people with advice on different areas
