Hi Sue


Does your husband have a resume ready to send to employers? Has he looked into becoming a taxi driver here?


Pretty much all recruitment here is done on the strength of having a resume and with references ready to contact, or having open references to present at interview.


Did you look into what sort of work he was going to do prior to coming to prepare yourself?


I use taxis around the city quite a bit for work and the aussie drivers are always complaining about taxi drivers from non-english speaking countries. I think they are desperate for more english speaking taxi drivers and they all seem to be registered the white cab drivers with sat-navs which do all the work for you!


Good luck

If anything is considered, then, I saw jobs for labourers for a landscape co. advertised at Budget landscapes at Sheidow Park at the weekend. Take a drive and walk into the office and get the number.Its opposite mitre 10 down the Lonsdale highway.....Well just off:)
