I used to live in OZ ( although I am a pom) I sound more like an oxzzy and consider it home I desperately want to move back to oz for good and have been trying to get my skills up to do this. I have worked in both psychology and law and have specialised in working with young people, while living in OZ I qalufied as a Cognative behavioural therapist and worked in promoting health with indigenous communities|( I got a distinction in a post grad dipoloma for my work in this area.

To chill out I love the outdoors and like any reguloar ozzy girl I love the beach surf, swim every day and scuba dive when I can so I think I will fit in well with life in Perth.

Could you advise me if Perth employers would be interested with a want to be ozzy who would be proud to call Perth home?

Hi Ema, So that others can read my employment outlook in Perth opinion, I've gone public via the Perth Forum

While there will be a down turn in employment, employment levels in Perth Western Australia are still at record highs. There is a huge need in the field of councelling and also in Aboriginal health. You are well qualified and with previous experience I think you'll easily be able to find work.

My friend is a psychologist in Broome. My partner was a volunteer councellor for LifeLine in Perth and her daughter in-law is a full time professional youth councellor in Perth. I recommend you search for Government jobs in Perth via http://search.jobs.wa.gov.au/page.php?pageID=215 or contact employment agents advertising on www.jobsperth.info

Might see you surfing Perth beach breaks. Good luck with job hunting in Perth.

PROFILE
• Having originally trained in psychology, my experiences of working with disadvantaged people led me to study law with the aim of using my training in both disciplines as a tool for change and to represent the rights of the most vulnerable in society.
