Why work in Australia?
Why work in Australia? This is an easy question to answer. Australia is an excellent working holiday destination for so many reasons. We have listed below a few attractions for why you might like to make the move over to Aussie land.
The great outdoors
Australians are famous for their love of the great outdoors and recreation. Since most towns and cities are located near the coast, the locals tend to hang out at the beach regularly and spend weekends at the coast relaxing and soaking in the sun. Imagine finishing a shift and heading down to the beach for a dip or the local pub for a few drinks with mates. By working in Australia, it will also provide you with the opportunity to travel and sight see the rest of our beautiful country. It is extremely easy getting to each state by plane or even a driving holiday up our stunning coast allows you to see more.
The food scene
If you consider yourself a foodie, then the Australian lifestyle has a lot to offer you! No matter which State you visit, you will face an abundance of multicultural food options. Australia is known as the melting pot of cuisines and whether it is a casual take away spot or a fine dining experience the service and quality is always exceptional.
Australia provides a great work/life balance. Australia is known for its laid-back lifestyle and chilled ambience. Australian people are known as one of the friendliest and relaxed nations. You would have no issue creating connections and building relationships.
Australia’s love a Friday drinks with their colleagues as well as flexible working options to suit specific lifestyles. Australia also values relationships with family and friends and the importance of spending time with loved ones. There will always be time allocated to your special moments.
Moving over from the UK where more often than not the weather can bring you down, Australia provides a sunny filled experience. Australia has a tropical influenced climate, and its weather tends to vary in different areas of the country. The country boasts lots of sunshine throughout the year, in summer temperatures can reach 40°C, so do not forget your sunscreen and swimmers! There are also cities in Australia further south such as Melbourne that provide relief in the winter months of temperatures as low as 10°C.
It is important to note that the seasons are inverted in Australia, which means that June-August is winter, December-February is summer, March-May is autumn and September-November is spring. The beautiful weather means there is plenty to do after a long day of work like a trip to the beach or a relaxing walk, the opportunities are endless!
A bit more about the cities where you could live:
Melbourne is the food and sporting capital of the country. The people and culture of Melbourne is vibrant and inclusive. Melbourne is a mixing pot; you can find people from all over the world calling Melbourne home. It is an extremely multicultural city with various cultural backgrounds which in turn offers a delicious variety of food scenes. Coffee snobs unite! There is a coffee shop on every corner so no matter your coffee preference you are bound to find a favourite. Melbourne is also home to some of the best nightlife in the country, with pubs, bars and restaurants open late there is always something fun on offer.
Public transport is well established in Melbourne whether it be trams, trains, or buses. The trams within the CBD are FREE! It is also likely you will live close to some form of public transport if you move to Melbourne. Just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the CBD is the tranquil Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens. A mesmerising spot to spend an afternoon having a picnic, reading a book, or going for a walk.
Melbourne is home to the MCG, the biggest sporting arena in the Southern Hemisphere. Whether you are a cricket, tennis, rugby, football (soccer) or aussie rules fan there is an exciting game for you.
If you live in Melbourne you are gifted with many weekend trips away to beautiful spots including our Great Ocean Road, Mornington Peninsula and The Yarra Valley. All filled with beautiful wineries, beaches, restaurants, and even hot springs.
Sydney, New South Wales
Sydney is one of Australia’s most iconic cities, home to many of the country’s most famous landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach. Sydney’s draw dropping views are some of the best in the world. There are ferries that you can take to one of the stunning nearby beaches such as Manly, Mosman and Balmain. Studded with amazing cafes and restaurants, it is a buzzing hive of creativity and style, one of the many advantages to living in Sydney!
A big attraction to Sydney is the weather and how the city is located all along water. If you are looking for a change from the UK winter, the lifestyle in Sydney may be for you. Even Sydney’s winter will feel more like a late Autumn in the UK.
The stunning islands around Sydney Harbour National Park make wonderful places to visit for a day or longer and then there are some incredible bushwalking opportunities in the Royal National Park too. Only an hour drive out of Sydney’s CBD you will find the breathtaking Blue Mountains National Park. You can enjoy a full-on camping experience, sleeping under the stars and observing some of the amazing wildlife here, or just have a day out and a stroll.
If you are looking for a slightly less chaotic city, then pack your camera for the picturesque views of Cradle Mountain, Wellington Park, and the rest of Tasmania. Hobart is the most southern city in Australia located on the island state of Tasmania. Whether you are enticed by the warm southern hospitality, the stunning landscapes, the need to breathe some of the worlds cleanest air or the promise of incredibly fresh and creatively prepared local produce, you need to experience Hobart.
Things are a little slower in Hobart. Known for its friendly locals, this city has more of a country town feel. You can also look forward to fewer traffic jams than in other capital cities.
Whether you are an art lover or an occasional gallery visitor MONA is a must see. With some excellent restaurants and fabulous modern architecture, it is a destination as much as an art collection. Hobart is also home to the Salamanca Markets. This diverse and popular market offers an abundance of produce, artisan products, crafts, clothing, live music, and plenty of ready to eat options to enjoy as you wander around or in the nearby parks and waterfront.
The importance of international nurses in Australia
Internationally qualified nurses and midwives compose 50% of the healthcare workforce. Even so, they account for over half of the shortage of health workers. This global deficit has led to a migration of nurses. International nurses are leaving their countries in favour of distant shores and opportunities. Working abroad gives them unique insights and experiences making them valuable assets in the medical industry.
Having experience as an international nurse or midwife increases your skillset. It makes you a more competitive candidate when applying for a specific post or location. International nurses also have a unique perspective when it comes to both health and patients.
