Be Recruitment

Relocating to Australia from UK/Ireland – Your questions answered.

Are you an experienced social worker or case manager in the UK or Ireland, passionate about making a difference in people’s lives?

Imagine taking your expertise to the sun-kissed shores of Australia, where your skills are not only highly valued but also nurtured in a vibrant and diverse community.

In this blog post, we’ll answer some of your biggest questions about making the move, and two members of the Be Recruitment team share some of their experience of relocating to Australia.

How will I find a job in the community sector?

One of the biggest concerns when considering international relocation is finding a job – and thankfully, that’s exactly what we’re here for!

Be Recruitment is a trusted specialist recruiter in the Australian community sector. Our dedicated team of recruitment professionals understands the intricacies of the industry in both the UK/Ireland and Australia (in fact, many of our team have also come to Australia from the UK).

We’ll collaborate closely with our vast network of employers, as we look to find an opportunity tailored to your expertise and preferences.

“The process of visas and employment can be stressful and complicated. What truly sets Be Recruitment apart is their support, guidance, and assistance, so you can focus on our professional growth” – Claire-Ann (relocated from UK).

What roles are available?

Whether you have experience working with children and families, individuals with higher needs, or something different, we have opportunities that align with your expertise and passion.

There are roles for those looking to take the next step in their career, through to senior positions where you can lead and mentor a team.

We are actively recruiting for positions in community support, mental health services, disability care, and aged care, among others. We can offer you positions that not only suit your skills but also provide room for professional growth and development.

“Undoubtedly, the opportunities to develop professionally in Australia are better. I have made huge leaps in my career since moving here. I don’t think I would have achieved the same results if I’d stayed at home.” – Gavin (relocated from Ireland) 

Will my skills and qualifications transfer to Australia?

Working in social care in Australia might differ in some aspects from the UK/Ireland, but generally speaking, your qualifications will be recognised, and the core values remain the same: compassion, empathy, and commitment.

At Be Recruitment, we provide comprehensive support to help you navigate the subtle differences and embrace the nuances of the Australian system.

Where needed, our team will guide you through the accreditation process, ensuring you meet the necessary requirements and understand the local protocols.

With our assistance, you can seamlessly integrate your UK/Ireland experience into the Australian social care landscape.

“Making the move was a leap into the unknown and adjusting to a new working environment and culture was challenging. The fast-paced lifestyle of London had its charms, however grey skies became far too familiar. Despite the many ups and downs, I don’t have any regrets from relocating.” – Claire-Ann

What lifestyle opportunities does living in Australia offer?

Working and living in Australia is all about embracing a lifestyle that balances professional fulfillment with personal enjoyment.

From breathtaking beaches to awe-inspiring natural wonders, Australia offers an array of outdoor activities and places to visit.

Explore vibrant cities, indulge in diverse culinary experiences, and immerse yourself in the rich cultural tapestry that Australia has to offer.

Your time outside of work will be filled with unforgettable moments and new friendships, making your relocation an enriching and lifechanging experience.

“In Ireland, I felt as though I had to work at 100 miles an hour all the time, but here in Australia self-care and mental health are at the forefront of most professions these days. Moving to Australia was the best decision I ever made, the only downfall is not having your family and friends here with you. Otherwise, the standard of living and the work opportunities are far better”.
