Recruitment Agencies In Australia & Finding Work Fast (Backpackers Guide)
One of the best ways to get work while backpacking in Australia is using the recruitment agencies. A recruitment agency is a company that specialises in finding jobs for backpackers in Australia either on a permanent or temporary basis. There are loads of recruitment agencies that can help you get work all over Australia.
To find work with a recruitment agency you will need to register your details with them at one of their offices. Some of the major agencies have offices in every state which will be useful because you will only have to register with them once and from then on you can get work in every new place you visit.
If you're serious about getting work, it's recommended that you sign up with as many recruitment agencies as possible to give yourself a better chance of finding a job.
Even if you don't want to start working as soon as you arrive, at least you will be on their books and the opportunity to work is there if you want it.
To register with a recruitment agency, you can either phone them or visit one of their offices to get an appointment with one of the agents.
You are usually asked to fill in some forms and provide some details. Sometimes you will be shown some induction videos with a questionnaire regarding health and safety in the work place (like a little training course).
Then, when your all done they will either call you or email you offering work opportunities as and when it becomes available.
