Hi i will be arriving in sydney in april and will only have around £2000. i would like to find a job pretty quickly just to make sure i can support myself. I dont mind doing anything, ive heard telesales and fruit picking is the easiest to come by but is it around this time of year? what would be my options?

There are jobs available in Sydney, no matter what time of the year it is.
I'd suggest searching online on Seek or MyCareer as they can help you make a decision on what area you're keen on working in, depending on demand for each industry. There are always jobs in telemarketing, but also in cafes, as office assistants and labourers.

If you're looking for unskilled labour you could definitely do fruit-picking, although you're not going to find any of that in Sydney, you'll have to head west for that. The Australian Government has a website - harvest trail (search it on google) outlining jobs in the country.

All the best!
