  2. Hi, We will move to Adelaide in the next months. Have found two hospitals running a stroke so far. I am just wondering whether there are jobs available on Stroke Units. Is there any common abbreviation used, as eg. SCU (Stroke Care Unit) or similar? Actually I couldn't find any ads here. Or would you advise to keep an eye on other areas with more Stroke Units? Thanks

  5. http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=18103&page=1 Most of this unfortunately is not a surprise to me, as I'm sure it will be to no surprise to many of you reading it. It goes on everywhere, it's rife in London as it seems one man and his dog can become a recuiter, it takes time, experience and a seasoned approach to be able to spot them, of the 10 or so recruitment "pimps" I had contact with in adelaide, I'd say 1 maybe 2 were of any use and one of those i simply used as a factor once I actually got the position, contract and negoitiated them as a middle man becuase I did not want to deal direct with the gov, dodged a cashflow bullet on that one. Of the 10 or so recruitment "pimps" I used in London, similar story pretty useless, marginally better than adelaide if you stick to reference and the specialist agencies, currently no pimp needed so direct. These kind of plays by these people are survivable in a thick market with substantial programs of work underway, in a small contracting market, it must be hell, becuase they exclude, block and arbitrage their mates and best-margins into the jobs, so the experienced (read more expensive) applicants never get a look in... Malcolm King: Adelaide's private recruiters are listing false job advertisements, harvesting resumes to sell training and lying to candidates about their employment prospects. Thousands of job changers and desperate job seekers are wasting their time sending online applications off for jobs that don't exist. They are grilled by recruiters about their recent job interviews, then recruiters contact those employers to try sell them their candidates. Applicants are simply 'resume meat'. The English poet Shelley wrote, "in me lies such power, for I grow weary to behold the selfish and the strong still tyrannize without reproach or check." It's the tyranny of the few over the many as recruiters have inveigled their way, by craft and guile, to become the gatekeepers of leadership aspiration in Adelaide. Not a day goes by without my professional writing clients venting their spleen at private recruitment and private training agents. "As low as a snake's prostate," one client spat. In the journalistic spirit of a latter day Barbara Ehrenreich, I applied for a three-month position through a recruitment agency in Adelaide as a Senior Assessment Officer, working for the Commonwealth Government. The Government wanted 12 people to assess aged care grants across the state. It required a sound knowledge of policy and working within legal frameworks. I was interviewed and told a week later that I had not got the job. There was no feedback. No transparency of process. No accountability. I know why I was knocked back. I'm 56 and over qualified. Qualifications and executive experience are negatives in Adelaide. That's why I run my own business. I had previously worked for the Department of Employment in Canberra as an Associate Director in Labour Market Strategy. A core area was ensuring there were trained staff as the first wave of Boomers hit residential aged care homes. There's also rash of online jobs boards run by current or former recruiters, who funnel resumes directly to private training organisations. They use the resumes' private contact information to sell applicants training and then get them to access their VET FEE Help accounts. Private VET trainers (many are recruiters) have cajoled, scammed and burdened thousands of kids with unwanted VET-FEE billsfor rubbish training, delivered by people who can't teach and who are in it for the fast bucks. It wasn't until I saw a client, Bill, in his late 20s, that I realised how far and deeply entrenched some of these scams were. Bill saw a job advertised online at OneShiftfor a warehousing position in Adelaide. He sent off his resume. Three days later he was called by 'Guy' from OneShift in Sydney, who said he had not been short listed for the job. Guy said Bill's employment chances would 'improve drastically' if he undertook some Vocational Education and Training (VET) at a national private training provider. The cost was about three times what a TAFE program would cost and all he had to do was access his VET FEE HELP account. Bill said 'no'. In a world where the lowest common denominator is not hard to find, private recruitershave carved out their own niche. Unfortunately, they're also not the smartest girls and guys in the room. At a recent work function I spoke to a senior recruiter in her early 30s about the emotional impact of visiting Auschwitz in Poland. She looked puzzled. 'Did you go skiing?' She was hiring executives in Adelaide. Recruiters know very little about the competencies or capabilities of the advertised roles. Many have never been to a mine, a factory or know what an IT specialist does. If the recruiter doesn't know what the role entails, what's the point of talking to them in the first place? The brand damage to employers is incalculable. When liberty's light falls full on recruiter's startled faces, they scatter like cockroaches and wait nervously for the danger to pass. Or else they stand like pious deacons, full of their own importance, with one hand in the client's pocket while humbugging the career aspirations of tens of thousands of South Australians. A 2015 Four Corners program called The Jobs Game, found that some Job Service Australia (JSA) employees in Adelaide's northern suburbs put clients into courses run by the company's own registered agencies. There's no pretense of separation let alone transparency or accountability. Some jobseekers believe JSA's have forged their signatures and turned in false paperwork. A 2012 government audit found only 40 per cent of fees paid to agencies could be verified. What happened to the other 60 percent? Australia's welfare to work program costs $1.3 billion-a-year. Last year I emailed the reporter on the Four Corners program, Linton Besser, and he said that not one single local or Federal Government agency had done anything about it. It's a free for all with taxpayers money. One gets the distinct feeling that both the Government and the Department of Employment have put this in the 'too hard basket'. The time is ripe for a class action by those who, with evidence in hand, are willing to tell a judge and the media how they have been abused and how this scurrilous and predatory practice has effected their life. It's time to name names. We live in a world where corporations are judged by their partnerships. We should not support businesses who hire sharks and buffoons to traduce the character and intelligence of prospective staff. We live in a state that can only survive if we have the right people in the right jobs. We live in a time that cries out for authenticity, not deceptions; for truth, not lies.

  6. Hi, I have heard that there are a few recruitment agents on this site, I need you advice. How do we get your attention? I understand you get lots of CVs everyday, but what do we do, so that you register us and look for suitable work for us? Been here over 2 months and still nothing. Have applied for loads of jobs and nothing! Only got to meet one agent! When I contact the agencies directly they say send the CV through but never hear from them again. When I apply for a specific job never hear from them ever ... Been told I'm over qualified, do I dumb down my CV? I just want a job, even if just temping, data entry, that sort of thing will do for now. I know things here are different but in the UK when I was looking for a job I had lots of agencies ringing me all the time, not only me but any of my colleagues looking for jobs. Here they never ring. We work in Supply Chain/Logistics with also Export experience. What can I do? Please advise.
  7. Just wondering if anyone is having as much trouble as I am finding work?? I am 23 & have four years experience in freight forwarding, customer service and admin, but I cannot catch a break? It can't be that nowhere is hiring, yet everywhere I have emailed or called has advised me they are not hiring, or I hear nothing back?? Is this the norm??
  8. I've been reading other people's posts regarding life in Adelaide, migration issues, integration issues and the works. I've been handing out tips and getting loads of them back. Unlike many of you I'm not a Pom rather an Iranian. I look at your posts and you all seem so worried all the time, regarding moving home, getting a job etc., etc. I think to myself, if these guys are having it so bad then what am I going to be facing when I finally get there? If an English bloke can't get a job in SA what chances does an Iranian have of securing one? I've been posting out resume's with nothing back at me yet. I've been trying to contact recruitment agencies to sign up with them and still nothing. Coming from a country with so much trouble we are used to moving around and flourishing everywhere we go and this is a fact. But wetting my pants when reading your posts is an understatement. Any tips, any recruitment agencies (in the hospitality and tourism scene) that you guys can recommend? Anyone that answers and not just boast off about how good they are on their website. Cheers:smile:
  9. Hi, I'm arriving in Adelaide from the UK in around five weeks, and looking forward to it. I'm a software developer, I've been looking at jobs on the sites but in practice I think I'll have to actually be in Adelaide before I secure a role. So, to that end, can anyone recommend a good recruitment company, perhaps one that specialises in I.T.? Hard to tell otherwise who's good and who's not so good. Thanks All!
  10. Hi Everyne,This is my 1st post and 1st time on poms in adelaide so hopefully if I've asked a stupid question someone can point me in the right direction.I'm a Sales Director for a very large IT Reseller in the UK. I've got a lot of experience in corporate sales, in management and in business. My wife is from Adelaide and we're looking to relocate in the next couple of years or so. I've looked at the local IT Resellers in Adelaide and they seem more like local shops selling to consumers. Does anyone have any advice on finding a job with my experience in Adelaide? Am I better looking for a move to Melbourne? What are the likes of IBM and telstra like in Adelaide?Any advice greatly welcomed

    Hoping to be in Adelaide soon!

    Hi there, I'm just starting the immigration process and am hoping to come to Adelaide via a 475 visa. I just have one more itvw with an agent tomorrow to decide it's the best way in!! Spoken to Ian Harrop who seems great and also speaking with Go Matilda tomorrow. My background's journalism (TV, Radio and Print) but for the last six years my job's basically been Public Relations so hoping to get Vet assessed as such. Fingers crossed:) If anyone knows of any handy tips please let me know and also of any good media jobs (reporter/PR/ Media Relations Officer etc) . I'll be hugely grateful! It's nice to know there are so many of you already there and it's a much less daunting prospect as I plan my move. I love Australia and recently spent 15-months in Perth. I came back because I didn't find exactly what I was looking for work wise but at least if I come in on a 475 I can temp til I do. Cheers, Jenny
  14. Can you do a “pause” in the visa? Can we go to NZ for 2 years and come back? I think we have to live here for 2 years out of 3?! We on a 475, 4 months in, I’m temping and my husband still no job (even though his job is in the shortlist). He was offered a very good job in Auckland for 2 years, paying very well. The employer would pay for our relocation and visas. The question is we don’t want to loose our visa for South Australia as we would like later to become permanent residents. But seeing what happened to that couple, that lost their job and had to go back to the UK. It’s a big gamble but we concerned with the job market here being dead that he won’t get anything (keeps being told he is overqualified). All advice very much appreciated.
  15. Well our house as fallen through and we are now back to square one. All our money is tied up in the house. We have both gained jobs in Adelaide but no money to actually make the move unless we sell our home first. Nevertheless we just want to get to Adelaide and waiting for the house to sell could take ages and cutting us up inside. So we went to the bank and have arranged to go on interest only mortgage until we sell our house etc. This means that our mortgage has gone from £440 per month to £229.42 thus a saving of £210.58 per month. So we made the decision to bite the bullet today and we have now booked and paid for our flights to Adelaide for the 8th February 2010 with Cathay Pacific from Heathrow - Hong Kong - Adelaide. The full price we paid for five Adults £505.00 per person one way, totalling £2520.00. Their website is: www.economytravels.co.uk Jane the wife will start her job soon as we get their and I will start mine after we have sorted the kids out and settled a bit better. We will pay for this mortgage of £229.42 whilst in Adelaide and the leave the keys with the estate agents and let them show people around. We just thought with both of us gaining suitable employment why are we sitting here with winter arriving, when we should just go for it at least we will be earning fairly soon and its summer over in Adelaide. Plus ideal time for our 11 year old daughter to start school. Our problem is though we have no money saved up now because we have paid for our flights. We will have to save up now to send our furniture over and have set up fees for when we arrive. But we have got $5000 in a National Australian Bank Account on our arrival. I have also applied for AOA and the Meet and Greet Service, hopefully this will help us financially and settle much quicker. Financially we are worried but the suspense of just waiting and waiting and waiting for our house to be sold is torture, especially when we thought we had it sold, etc. Underneath I am also very worried that we may not have enough money, but I am still trying to be very positive, especially in front of my other family members. But still excited (weird eh)? Once we have settled we are going to try the Barbie thing, so everyone is invited, especially kids around the age of 21, 17 and 11 yrs old, so my kids can gain somemates, oh! and their parents for the wife and I lol.

    JOBS - Chef's

    One minutes i can read positive things about jobs then the next i read they are hard to come by For those with experience, can you help please? Once we move, how likely would it be if my husband went door to door (so to speak) looking for a Chef job? We would be pro-active before hand sending CV's to companies etc. He is head chef to a small brigade or sous chef in a larger brigade. Are we being un-realistic? Thank you

    Adelaide lifestyle

    Hi guys Well hubby and I have started the ball rolling, I have been gathering my documents for my skills assessment (176 ss teacher) and hubby has got in contact with his company in oz to be considered for a work transfer. So we are well and truly underway with our new adventure. I have been doing lots of research and had a few questions. What is the lifestyle like in Adelaide - the way of life? Staying close to adelaide where are the nicer areas to live, we would like to be near a beach! What is the cost of living like - clothes, groceries and eating out? What kind of social activities are there to do? Is it possible to rent a place with a pool? I'm a primary teacher - what would be the best way to hit the ground running in terms of jobs? Sorry! Lots of questions! Hope someone can help! Dani xx
  20. Hi again, Have you guys heard of any cruise liners that are hiring and operating from Adelaide? Will working aboard one affect my eligibility to getting a PR with a VF 475 SS visa? With this visa I need to work full time for a year in SA. I'm not sure how that will work out if I'm out on the sea:unsure: Cheers:smile:
  21. Hello ladies and gents! I'm here in Adelaide on my first 12 month work/ holiday visa and would like to the 3 month's fruit picking out of the way so that I can get a second visa.... Have trawled the internet but not found a great deal of fruit picking jobs here in SA (but found lots of people LOOKING for work). Anyone got any idea of where I can find jobs or if there are any fruit picking jobs going in and around Adelaide area? Thanks!
  22. I am an electrician from the uk with over 12 years experience in commercial industrial and residential work. I have my restricted license but am waiting on TRA to get back to me so I can do my wiring rules. I am looking for work as an electrician, a ta or even a labourer if any one can help please let me know I am am here on a permanent residency visa also. Thank You
  23. I just wanted to inform people who are in the process of emigrating to Adelaide and their career intentions is to work within the health and social care sector of Adelaide. Well the good news is there is lots of work our here, far far more than I ever expected when I was back in the UK, whilst waiting for visa to arrive and worrying if I could get work in Adelaide. Before I came over I got four job offers, then when I arrived within the two weeks I got offered another six job offers. I ended up bcoming a Rehabilitation Consultant on behalf of Workcover SA. Well I hated my job, so I literally walked out of my job at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday 16th june 2010, I literally dropped everything and had enough, told the managers and I just walked out. Soon as I got out of the building I got in car and went on the internet via my mobile phone. I telephone five companies asking for jobs, all five asked me to go and see them. So immediately I went off to see these potential employers. By 5 pm that same day I had got all the five jobs. Four job offers managing community care projects, e.g. homecare manager, mental health care worker, community care manager, team leader role and also a role as a Rehabilitation Consultant again but this time with a different comapany. Today I have got another four interviews and two more over the telephone. Please dont worry about gaining employment in health and social care, if you are experienced then you have no worries. I have accepted the Rehabilitation Job so far and start this Monday 21st June 2010. But you never know I may take a better offer today. Good Luck to all who are searching for work within this field, either here in Adelaide or back in the UK Tony
  24. In short: the government only class unemployed as those seeking employment, and have decided to allow some of those on the dole not to have to look for work (to keep the numbers down). http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/national/hiding-the-real-dole-figures-through-misleading-unemployment-figures/story-fnii5s40-1226703778533
  25. Hello All, I have been aggressively applying for IT jobs in Adelaide. It has been really tough. Not that easy to get through. I have gotten a Skype meeting setup with a recruitment consultant from a big IT recruitment agency in SA. I am not sure what to expect. I have spoken with lots of them in the US but I am really nervous and confused as to what to expect on this call. If someone has done this already, can you please shed some light on the same? It will be really helpful. Thanks..
