USIT’S JOB SUPPORT

If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing in Australia. Here’s how USIT help

AUSTRALIA TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS LIFTED

Hang up your work suit and shoehorn your way into a wet suit, because Australia is open for business! Due to the lack of immigration during the pandemic, there’s plenty of work available for working holidaymakers. We connect you with employers on the ground who are actively recruiting travellers, so that you can find work and start earning as soon as you need to.

TYPES OF JOBS YOU CAN DO

Employers in Australia are used to recruiting backpackers for short-term casual roles, working in hospitality, tourism, construction, farming, temping and more. However, your visa allows you to work in any job as long as you change employers every six months – giving you the option to also apply for more professional roles related to your career, trade or craft.

WHAT OUR PACKAGES DO

Job hunting pretty much sucks, especially when people are throwing unfamiliar terms at you – such as tax file number, or RSA certificate. Or are throwing familiar distractions at you – such as happy hours. Whether you need to start working as soon as you land or are travelling the East Coast, Red Centre or West Coast first – our packages set you up with everything you need.

4 WAYS WE GET THE JOB DONE

1. WORKING HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS

There are some basics you need to start legally working in Australia. Your work visa (which we apply for on your behalf), and essentials such as an Aussie bank account and tax file number (the equivalent of your Irish PPSN). We also include a SIM card, because, well... your mammy and that.

2. AUSTRALIA JOBS PORTAL

All three of our Australia packages include 12 months’ access to our nationwide jobs portal. Here you can search and apply for jobs in different locations and sectors – including retail, hospitality, construction, sales, marketing, farm work, tourism, promotions, nannying and more.

3. ARRIVAL JOB SUPPORT

Only on our ALL IN or COMPLETE packages, our work and travel experts in Melbourne or Sydney will help to connect you with jobs in your first week. Includes a dedicated work and travel session, 1-on-1 employment meeting, and a CV workshop to make sure your resume is Aussie ready.

4. RESOURCE CENTRES

Only on our ALL IN or COMPLETE packages, get 12 months’ access to our resource centres in both Melbourne and Sydney. Includes an in-house recruitment team, private mailbox, internet access, 24/7 emergency support, activities schedule and weekly drinks. (All work no play, etc).

ARE YOU A SYDNEYSIDER OR A MELBURNITE?

Our 4-day ALL IN and 8-day COMPLETE itineraries start in either Sydney or Melbourne. With daily flights to Australia from Ireland, pick a starting city and let’s get to work.

SYDNEY

Naturally good looking, effortlessly cool and artfully beach styled – if Sydney was a person, we’re not sure we’d be friends. The bustling CBD, surf-filled suburbs and weekend access to the vineyards of the Hunter Valley and hikes of the Blue Mountains guarantee it a regular spot at the top of the most liveable cities in the world. Add to that Australia’s largest LGBTQ+ community, endless brunch spots and Sunday beach walks in Coogee or Bondi, and Sydney ticks all the work/life balance boxes.

MELBOURNE

Victoria’s not-so-well-kept secret, Melbourne is cool and arty. To continue our analogy, it would be the aloof one that plays in a band but is also annoyingly good at sport. The home of Aussie sport and the perfect Flat White – Melbourne’s graffiti-painted laneways, rooftop cocktails bars and coffee shops make it an iconic place to live. The beachy burb of St. Kilda brings the barefoot lifestyle, or the wineries and white sands of the Mornington Peninsula are just under an hour away.
