temping in sydney and buying a van

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific temping in sydney and buying a van

Hey guys...
I am arriving soon in Sydney and hoping to find temping work for a few weeks. Can anyone recommend an agency that they have used? I'm only there for a few weeks before heading up north...
Also, my boyfriend and I are hoping to buy a van to travel/sleep in (the cheaper the better!) And if it is kitted out with mattresses and cooking stuff that would be perfect. Does anyone know if there is a way to find other travellers who have finished their road trip and are selling their van on?
Thankyou!
Annie

To buy a van try:
Travellers Auto Barn
Kings Cross Car Market
the Trading Post newspaper
the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper
carpoint.com.au
or any of the Hostel notice boards

There are a lot of recruitment agencies with a number of offices in Sydney and throughout Australia.

When I arrive in March, I'm going to just walk into one (or more) and sign up for temp/casual work - apparently it's pretty easy to come by!

Try http://www.manpower.com.au or http://www.hays.com.au - these are probably the two biggest global recruitment companies.

Hope this helps,

Kate :-)

Pretty well summed up in ozintro's prior post. I find the online version of the Trading Post really useful - http://www.tradingpost.com.au/ Go, Rosco.
