Even if you are a native English speaker, it is not that easy to find a job in your career since Australia does not recognize many qualifications from other countries, even the UK, Canada and the USA. We, therefore, advise you to enrol in one of our Starter Packs
which will allow you to obtain an Australian recognized qualification. To find a job easily in restaurants, cafés, clubs etc
, it is recommended that you do the RSA Certificate (responsible service alcohol) course, a compulsory qualification to work in hospitality in Australia. The training lasts one day and you receive your certificate the same day. We offer a very competitive rate and can organise a course for you. Contact us
or call us on (02) 9264 9633.
You should note that being on a Working Holiday Visa will not allow you to find a job of much importance: most of the job vacancies are in the hospitaliy industry, fruit picking, labour etc., since you have to change employers every 6 months.
