Advantages of working in Australia

Australia is a very safe country with unstoppable economic growth for over 25 years, offering numerous opportunities and advantages for those who want to come here to grow both professionally and personally.


Australia boasts some of the highest salaries in the world. With part-time work, you can easily cover your living and study expenses.

Low Unemployment

With a 3.6% unemployment rate, it's one of the lowest in the world, making it a source of great job opportunities.

Improving Your English

English is the official language, so you'll have to use it in everyday situations, providing you with 24/7 practice.

Requirements for working in Australia

To work in Australia, like in any other country, you’ll need to meet some basic requirements. But don’t worry, they’re nothing out of the ordinary!


Work Visa

First, you’ll need a visa that allows you to enter the country and work legally. The two most common visas are the Student Visa and the Work & Holiday Visa:

  • Student Visa: This visa is the easiest to obtain, has no age limit, doesn’t require English proficiency, and allows you to work and study in Australia for the duration of your enrolled course.
  • Work & Holiday Visa: This visa is designed for full-time work in Australia. It can only be applied for once in a lifetime, has an age limit (maximum 30 years), and requires a certified English level of at least 4.5 in IELTS.

Which one is better? There’s no one-size-fits-all answer—it depends on your personal situation and goals. What you can be sure of is that Dingoos will accompany you every step of the way, helping you decide which visa suits you best and handling all the paperwork so you don’t have to lift a finger. Write to us!


Getting your TFN and/or ABN

These abbreviations, which might sound like Chinese, are essential for working legally in Australia.

  • TFN (Tax File Number): It’s the equivalent of the social security number in Australia. Your employer will need it to register you as an employee and withhold taxes.
  • ABN (Australia Business Number): Applying for an ABN means registering as a self-employed individual. You’ll need it for freelance work and invoicing. Unlike Spain, it’s free to apply for, and you can have it while working other jobs in Australia as an employee.

Upon your arrival in Australia, one of the first things your Dingoos integration coordinator will do is explore all your options and assist you in obtaining your TFN.


Bank account

Just like in any country, you’ll need a bank account for your weekly pay (yes, in Australia, you get paid weekly, not at the end of the month). Dingoos will help you open your account even before you arrive, from your home country, so you can start using it and make payments without carrying cash once you arrive.


English proficiency

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know English because in Australia, there are various jobs you can do even if you don’t speak the language. As your English level improves, more doors will open to higher-paying jobs in fields you might enjoy more.


Legal age

To work in Australia, you must be of legal age (+18).


Curriculum Vitae

To enter the Australian job market, you’ll need a CV that you can submit to potential employers and use for job interviews. Dingoos will teach you all the peculiarities of the Australian CV and help you create a resume that sets you apart from other candidates.


Complying with current legislation

Like in any country, depending on your visa and a certain income threshold, you may be required to declare your earnings and pay taxes. Dingoos will guide you through these processes, making seemingly complex tasks straightforward, and provide you with the essentials for filing your Australian income tax return in accordance with the law.

    How to find a job in Australia?

    Basically, there are two ways to find a job in Australia: the traditional way, which involves submitting your CV in person to places where you’d like to work, and the digital way, by using websites with job listings to find opportunities.


    Recommended Websites


    Gumtree is one of Australia’s most popular websites, and on it, you can find not only employment but almost anything you’re looking for, from a bed to a car. Every day, all types of job offers are posted, and you can apply for them.


    Adzuna is an Australian portal specialized in job search. You upload your CV, choose the job you aspire to, the areas where you’d like to find it, and the website conducts a search to find your opportunity.


    Seek is a website where you can search for a job using keywords, narrowing the search to specific geographical areas. It defines itself as the number one job search page in Australia.


    More focused on freelancers and one-time jobs, AirTasker allows any user to post a task with an assigned budget so that another user can offer to complete it.


    Facebook Groups

    Another way to find a job is to join one of the Spanish groups you’ll find on Facebook, authentic communities where users help each other and even meet up to get to know each other and do activities together in different Australian cities.
