Backpacker Jobs and Work Availability
Earn some holiday spending money during your stay at Cronulla Beach YHA Sydney NSW Australia. There is a great range of casual jobs available throughout the Cronulla and southern beaches area of Sydney. Mostly the jobs have pickup and drop off from the hostel and others have easy public transport links.
We are a small hostel of 66 beds so we can offer a more personalised service compared to larger 'factory' hostels. Over the past 10 years we have built up 100's of local contacts who call us all the time.
The Cronulla Beach YHA backpacker hostel accommodation in Sydney also has a jobs notice board where new local employers and agents post vacancies. Complete and submit the employment request form and Cronulla Beach YHA can assess the likelihood of you finding a job.
As you will appreciate jobs come and go all the time (yes daily) as do other travelers who may have been already working in Cronulla & Sydney.
A lot of the time vacating travelers and backpackers pass on their job to new backpacker arrivals, so it pays to be here at the hostel to get the inside information from them and the front desk.
Also, a lot of local Cronulla and Greater Sydney area employers ring looking for workers they urgently need that day - and they get handed out to current accommodation guests - this happens more often than not.

Advice to Skilled Workers:
To have your trade skills recognised in Australia can be very rewarding, but like anything worthwhile there is effort and cost involved.
What you need to prove or have evidence showing is that:
You have worked in a particular trade for at least 4 years
You have completed an apprenticeship or other trade training
You have completed a recognised industry assessment program.
The Skills and knowledge you need are:
Read and respond to work instructions, specifications and technical drawings
Plan, mark out, lay out and set up trade work.
Select and use appropriate materials, tools machines and equipment.
Carry out trade work independently
Check, test and perform trade work to required standards and in accordance with the relevant industry regulations
Supervise other staff including apprentices
Contact the Department of Vocational Training: Training N.S.W.
Fees are applicable
At this stage depending on what trade and what level of skill and experience you have the Government authority might make you attend work safe classes and / or Technical and further educational college TAFE to do bridging classes to meet Australian Standards.
After passing this process you will obtain a certificate of Proficiency which allows you to go to the next step of licensing.
This whole process is really for the overseas traveller who wants to stay in Australia for more than 8 months and is looking to extend their visa. Fruit picking for three months gives you an automatic 1 year extension or sponsorship can have you stay up to four years.
If you are not sure about doing all this before you leave home at least fill out the forms and obtain references. Then if you find suitable work upon arrival and wish to persue the license required at least you have a majority of the requirements with you.
