How to find a Koala catcher South Australian working holiday job
The government of South Australia has kickstarted a nationwide tour to tempt Britons aged 18-30 to live and work in the state by offering quirky jobs.
The nationwide campaign offers a number of unusual and fun jobs in South Australia – and all Brits have to do is head to South Australia on an Australian Working Holiday Visa to be in with a chance of snagging a dream role.
Some of the more unusual jobs on offer in South Australia includes a Coopers Beer taster in Adelaide, a grassless golf course “greenkeeper” in Coober Pedy, a Tuna toss judge at the Tunarama Festival in Port Lincoln, a Koala catcher on Kangaroo Island or a shark tagger on Port Lincoln.
South Australia’s London-based Agent General Bill Muirhead, said: “This isn’t about one job that everyone has to compete for, but rather about showing people that South Australia offers more exciting work and travel options than anywhere else in the world. And anyone on a working holiday could do them”.
“This is the first time these jobs have collectively been released and with no previous experience necessary, we’re offering people a genuine chance to ‘get away from it all’,” he said.
To obtain one of the quirky South Australian jobs, Britons are urged to register their interest online and apply for an Australian Working Holiday Visa.
The South Australian Government recommends working holiday makers to register their interest with the Adelaide-based Work in SA website here.
Next, you can apply for your Australian working Holiday Visa online. After you have received your working holiday visa you are able to apply for jobs before leaving home, but it is also possible to look for work once you arrive.
Britons aged between 18 – 30 years old, who meet financial, character and medication requirements could be eligible for an Australian Working Holiday Visa.
South Australian Government representatives will also be at the Down Under Live expo in London on September 18 and 19 to provide more information to Brits about living and working in the state.
South Australia has more than 300 days of sunshine a year and 3,148 miles of coastline.
