    I am currently looking for all expats in the Brisbane area who have come across the same kind of discrimination I have.

    If you have had the usual....too qualified, not enough australian experience, not "local" or no responses at all to your applications, drop me a line.

    I am looking at setting up a special association in Australian with a view to potentially setting up a Recruitment Agency for Expats...letting Aussie Employers know that just because you dont have Aussie experience doesnt mean you arent the best person for the job!

    My email address is and my mobile number is 0430059490.

    Thanks and good luck! :biggrin:

    Hi Nick,

    I have been looking for a job in Brisbane for over six months now, having emigrated to Oz over a year ago. I am a qualified Accountant with over 10 years experience, and all I hear back from the recruiters that bother to respond to me is that I do not have local experience. How does one get local experience if no-one is willing to give you a fair go?
    I have also directly applied to loads of employers and keep getting yes, I definitely feel there is discrimmination involved, maybe not because I'm from the UK, but because I'm NOT Australian.
    I think it would be a fantastic idea for you to start up a recruitment firm specialising in helping people from overseas find jobs, and educating Brisbane employers that we are as capable as the next person of performing really well.
    I would like to get involved if you need the help.
