Default Paramedic wanting a life down under

Hello

I am currently 30 years old and I have visited Australia twice on holiday seeing Sydney, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and Hobart.
I fell in love with the country but I’m under no illusion that working there will be similar to being on holiday. I know that London ambulance service often bring in Australian paramedics due to our similar skill set.
I’m wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation or better so been sponsored by one of the Australian ambulance services? I currently hold a C1 entitlement full UK driving license to drive ambulances on blue lights (up to 7 tonne) would this be recognised in Australia?

I’m a complete beginner to the migration process so any information or help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

definitely, especially as getting sponsorship in that field at the moment would be far from easy, if not impossible

Doubt you are going to get sponsorship - getting a paramedic job is hard enough for local graduates - which is why UK recruits from new young Australian graduates each year - my niece was contemplating going to UK but eventually picked up a position in Tasmania after quite a long wait.
