Jobs in Australia for UK citizens

Workingholiday.co is a site offering jobs in Australia for UK citizens and focuses on the shorter term job market.

We place an emphasis on those who want to visit Australia as part of a working holiday and be able to pay for their stay by working.
We help by providing links and documentation requirements you will need to take up a post.

We offer a short list of typical jobs as a sample but for more information on what is currently available we ask you to contact us with some information about what type of work you are seeking and which country and city you would like to work in.
We can then work with you in more detail and provide more specific opportunities.

Chris Hemsworth says: "It's different down here, the air has more life in it. Because Australia isn't just a place you see it's a place you feel. That's why there's nothing like it!"

Come and explore this great land, learn to surf just like Chris and his mates, you might even catch a glimpse of Thor as you're learning to surf in Byron Bay!

Explore the golden outback, enjoy the Aussie nightlife, parties, festivals and events. But, most of all define your own adventure. Whether that's adrenaline filled, seeking out our weird and wonderful wildlife, getting to know the friendly locals or enjoying our endless coastlines.

We welcome thousands of mates down under every year. We want to help you have the adventure of a life time, with rock solid support when you need it the whole time you're here!

Working holidays mean you can stay longer and spend what you earn on awesome experiences… like sky diving in Byron Bay, 4W Driving on Fraser Island, learning to surf or even sailing the Whitsundays.There's free stuff too that only takes your legs to see and explore. Think… the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, Coogee to Bondi Beach coastal walk, the laneways of Melbourne, Byron Bay lighthouse and the Brisbane River and sunbaking on any of the thousands of beaches.

Useful Information

We have many visitors from European countries seeking to try out life in Australia. Very often these will be students before they start their college or university courses, or those on a year sabbatical from studying. We have many from major cities across the UK, and those considering a career in private industry e.g. the construction industry and interior design. One particular student finished her training at the Society of International Design.  Rather than take up a job offer on interior design at www.carpettilewholesale.co.uk remained in Australia for 2 very enjoyable years and worked in 2 major cities.
