Australian Working Holiday Visas
An Australian Working Holiday Visa allows you to stay in Australia and work for up to 12 months. You can generally only work six months with one employer. Check the Department of Home Affairs 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.
Finding a job
Register with a few agencies, check employment websites and look at the Saturday editions of Melbourne newspapers, or online sites jobs.vic.gov.au, adzuna.com.au, seek.com.au, backpackerjobboard.com.au and careerone.com.au 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.
