Overview

Work

There are plenty of opportunities to find work in Melbourne and around regional Victoria in a wide range of industries.

Australian Working Holiday Visas

An Australian Working Holiday Visa now now allows you to stay in Australia for up to 12 months and to work in any one job for six months. You may be able to extend the visa for an additional year if you undertake 'specified' work, including seasonal and volunteer work.

Check the Department of Immigration and Citizenship website for visa details.

Work in Melbourne

Melbourne is home to numerous international sports and cultural events, and this means plenty of short-term employment opportunities, especially over the summer.

Longer term, there are often positions available in the banking, finance, nursing, hospitality and teaching sectors, as well as opportunities for call centre and nanny work.

Finding a job

Register with a few agencies, check employment websites and look at the Saturday editions of Melbourne's The Age and Herald Sun newspapers to ensure you get a good spread of jobs on offer. Most recruitment firms ask for your resume or CV, so make sure it's up to date and includes your current contact details.

Getting started

Before you start work, you must open a bank account and obtain a Tax File Number (TFN) from the Australian Taxation Office. Visit a post office for an application form.

Training courses

The majority of hospitality and construction jobs in Australia require the completion of a course prior to commencing work, however most courses are relatively short and inexpensive. Be sure to check with your employer and before you start a course, always make sure it's valid for the state in which you want to work. 

For more information on training courses available, visit the official Study Melbourne website: studymelbourne.vic.gov.au.
