Help: Moving to Australia from the UK, any Job sites? looking at science jobs

Hi guys,

We are thinking of moving to Australia my girlfriend and I. Resent graduate in environmental conservation and she's a food engineer. (still don't know exactly what it relates to lol)

I saw the easiest way for me to get a visa to come to Australia, would be through employment/work holiday visa.

As a scientist, I'm wondering if their are any scientists on the forum or graduate job seekers.

If anyone has an agency to recommend or a specific website?

Any tips?

I've already traveled to Australia many years ago,
it would be in the region of Melbourne, Sydney or Queensland.

All your help will be greatly appreciated,

A friend of mine is an environmental scientist for Sydney Water. He hasn't finished his degree yet but he's working full time.
Want me to ask what it was like for him to get that in to that line of work?

And if you are moving with a lot of luggage, then you need to find a good moving company in advance that will help with this. We were always helped out by the guys from man with a van london company. They were very punctual and took care of our belongings. I've seen movers from other companies throw boxes into the car and even those marked as "fragile". And I was in shock. I felt sorry for the people who ordered them, because I'm sure that with this attitude, a lot of things were damaged. So I can say that we were very lucky with the moving company we ordered.
Moving sucks, I know that, that's why there's always a need for professionals movers and I hope that the movers that you talk about are such professionals

Fortunately, I came across some interesting vipkid reviews where I learned about good options for working from home. I worked from home for a year and made a very good profit, so I didn't need a full-time job. Then I realized that my capabilities are much greater than I thought. Therefore, do not despair and it is better to move only forward. I think you will succeed
I guess it's important to find a job that allows you to move freely, and we should find such jobs from the beginning. Maybe something online, but also it's important to be highly paid (said the Jew from inside me)

I understand you perfectly. I recently moved to New Zealand. I found a job offer before I decided to move to Auckland. In the three months that I live here, I already twice changed the apartment I rent, so I needed to urgently find moving services in my area. I was surprised when I visited the portal, where I found all the offers of moving companies in my area. In London, I had to look for all the offers in Google and compare the prices and services of various companies took a lot of time. Here I was able to do this in a few minutes, besides I got a quota for moving 75% of the cost of services of such companies. I think you should find something similar about finding vacancies in your area. I really like that in these countries think more about the comfort of residents.

I think it's best to use LinkedIn to find a job.
