    Hi there,

    I have been 'lurking' for a while, but thought I would register and intro myself as I just got my spouse visa granted yesterday. (WOOOHOOOO!)

    We're (husband, daughter) currently in Manchester but are looking to move over at the end of January. The thing is, things are getting awful here in UK economy/jobs-wise and I am a little worried about job prospects in Brisbane/Australia as we're both leaving (relatively secure) jobs. (I am in Financial Services and hubby is a chef). From what I have read, although Oz isn't immune, things are still looking ok and may not actually fall into recession. Any thoughts?

    Hiya welcome to brits, things have slowed down a little over here but still plenty of job vacancies and work knocking about. Have you had a look at and these should give you an idea of what jobs are about.
    I left Manchester just over 2 years ago now and cant believe how many people i have met on-line and in person from around manchester/yorkshire way ,,theres gonna be no-one left,lol.

    Hi there!

    Huge congrats on the visa!!!

    Australia is said to be one of, if not the best prepared country in the world for the economic slowdown and the Australian PM Kevin Rudd is convinced that the country can avoid recession so I'd say Oz is doing much better than the U.K. and will be doing much better than us for a very long time...!

    Cheers for that. Very excited especially as it is sooooooo cold here at the moment - minus 5 degrees this morning as I was driving into work.
