Myself and i friend fly to Melbourne in October 2005 and will be looking for work there before moving north up the east coast. Can anyone recommend any agencies to register with prior to leaving or who i should contact upon arrival to get work. Can you also give a rough indication on the hourly rates of pay for call centre work or construction labouring? Thanks

I've been working in Melbourne for the last 3 months. I joined two agencies Smiths Recruitment and Carmichael Fisher. Average wage through agencies will be about $17/18 p/h.

Not sure about construction though soz
