After spending a few weeks in Oz during my last travels, I absolutely fell in love with Sydney and I want to go back!

Does anyone know if it is possible to find admin work on a WHV? I have only ever worked in banking, it is all I know and it could be a god opportunity to earn some money to fund some later travelling of the country :) I would like the security of having a job to go to and I know there will be a lot of things against me trying to find work before I enter the country, but I just wondered if anyone had any joy finding this kind of work on a WHV? Or do I need to suck it up and do some bar work instead?

Hello, I'm in exactly the same position. Hoping to return to Oz, but securing work is a must! Let me know if you have any luck with info on this!

I used to work in a bank in Sydney (I am an Aussie), and we used to employ many 'backpackers' on WHV for 3 month contracts. In fact, I met my husband while he was on a WHV doing a 3 month contract at my bank - he now has permanent residency, but is not yet a citizen!!!
