Top Professions to Work in When Moving to Australia

If you are thinking about moving to Australia, then you will be interested in making sure that there are jobs for you. Indeed, you will be unable to move into the country unless you can secure work, as this is the way that their visa system works, so you will need to have your role before you even apply. If you aren’t sure about whether you should move there or not, you may be interested to hear about some of the highest paid jobs in the country – and if you are already trained in these jobs then this gives you a great advantage when it comes to taking your place in the country. This article will give you some information about the jobs that you might want to aim for.

The medical profession
Perhaps this is unsurprising when you consider the quality of Australia’s health system, however a huge proportion of the jobs that are on the ‘highest paid’ list are in the healthcare profession. Anaesthetists and surgeons top the list, with psychiatrists, dental practitioners and medical practitioners also in the top 10. If you are highly educated in the medical profession then it may be a great idea to see what Australia has to offer – as anywhere up to 88% of people working within this profession earn more than $2,000 per week.

Mining engineers and engineering managers make the list, which means that it is very much a sought after profession in Australia. If you have a degree in engineering that you earned in the UK, and you have thus far been frustrated when it comes to finding work in England, you may decide that it is a good idea to seek work in Australia instead.

The legal profession
If you have qualifications in law, then it is likely that you would be able to thrive in Australia. Judges are the highest paid in this profession, and they are near the top of the overall list when it comes to the highest paid in the entire country. There are many people in the UK who are struggling to get the jobs that they need in law, so it may make sense to see the types of jobs that are available overseas.

And what about the lowest paid jobs?
When you think about the difference in cost of living between the UK and Australia, you will understand why it is so important that you are able to earn enough to pay for the lifestyle that you and your family are hoping for. If you aren’t skilled or trained in a profession, and plan to work as a housekeeper, café worker or hairdresser, you may find that you are not able to earn enough to make a living – as these are amongst the lowest paid jobs in the country. This could potentially be offset, however, if either yourself or your partner have a higher paid role that could balance it out.

In general, you will not be able to gain access to Australia unless you are able to prove that you have work when you get there. For this reason, it is essential that you are able to secure a role – and if you are trained in one of the professions mentioned above then this is even better. With the potential for earning in certain professions so high in Australia, it is little wonder that so many people choose to think about moving here instead of remaining in other countries.

We have been so impressed with the care taken and the quality of packing, and also realise perhaps how lucky we have been to instigate the move when we did, and then to ask John Mason to do it for us.

D.P. Leeds, UK to Perth, Australia – November 2020
