Default HI !! Thinking of moving to Melbourne, Australia.

Hi All,

Have spent much of the last year perusing this site and finally feel ready to introduce myself! Myself, husband and children (6yrs and twins 15months - all boys) are stealthily hatching our plans to get downunder. I have just finished my mental health nursing degree and began researching possible employment opportunities in Melbourne, contacted HR at Royal melbourne hospital, they replied promptly asking for cv and clinical experience which I emailed ... they're calling me on wednesday for a 'chat' .... suddenly feels a bit real!!!

Just wanted to say hi and thanks for all the helpful advice we have got from the site so far,

Karin

Hello Karin...welcome to BE.

Congratulations on obtaining a telephone interview...good luck. When are you hoping to move Down Under?

I recommend you pop over to our Australia Forums and take a look around. We have quite a few members who live in the Melbourne area...they will help answer any questions you may have about Melbourne or life in Australia. The link I have given you will take you to the main index page of the Australia Forum...at the top of the page you will see a list of sub forums. The top forum is the Immigration Forum...please post questions relating to the immigration/visa process in there. The Main forum is for topics relating to Australia and The Barbie is for general chit chat.

I recommend you take a look in the BE Wiki...lot of info in there about life Down Under. Please take a few minutes to read through the stickied threads posted at the top of each forum's index page.

Kelli28, Sherlock Holmes and newjersey are the concierges for the Australia forums...so if you have any problems finding your way around our many forums please contact Kelli, Alistair or newjersey

For all other concerns or problems please contact a moderator or admin. Every BE forum has at least one moderator dedicated to that forum...Australia has 4...Cresta57, Monneypenny20,, Sonlymewalter and Alfresco.

I hope you enjoy your time with us and don't forget to shout out should you require any help. Good luck.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
