C&M's essentials if you're thinking about living and working in Australia:

Tax File Number
This is required to start working. Make an appointment at your local Australian Taxation Office once you arrive. Useful information can be found on

For short-term accommodation upon arrival, check For longer term rentals, try

Mobile Phones
It may seem obvious, but having a mobile phone will make it much easier for recruitment agencies to contact you and is also useful for organising accommodation and your social life! Start with a Pay As You Go deal. It may be possible to just get a new SIM card for your current mobile. Check this before you get to Australia.

Bank Accounts
You will need to open up a local bank account in order to get paid. Australia's leading banks include Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, Wespac, ANZ and St George. Find a local branch in the UK to set this up before you leave.


Melissa was a great help when I first landed as I had no idea what to expect and then when I returned from my holiday in Aus and you started looking for new opportunities for me, you were also a marvellous help. I am not just speaking from my experience, however also from the feedback that I have heard from other C&M temps that had nothing but praise for you all.

It has made life a lot easier whilst being here and I will definitely be recommending you guys to anybody I know back home looking to come over and work in travel or hospitality.

I have always been happy with the service received from C&M. Having dealt with Jason in the past and with Sharon in Manchester most recently, she was 'on the ball' from the first enquiry.

I have no hesitation in recommending C&M to my colleagues and friends in the industry and would put you light years ahead of your Northern competition!

I would like to comment about the unbelievably fantastic service that Rachel Elmore provided me. Within a day of me contacting her, she had set up an interview for me, provided me with plenty of information and excellent advice regarding what will be discussed, and within an hour of completing the interview she contacted the company for feedback and informed me that I had got the job.
