We’re here to help. Check out some of our most frequently asked questions. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, be sure to contact someone from our team.

Where do I start?

Our team of international recruitment consultants can walk you through the entire process, from preparing your AHPRA registration and discussing your visa options to chatting about work opportunities. They’ll also advise on which You+Aus (You and Aus) agency would be best suited to support you. To start the process, simply register with You+Aus here and we’ll be in touch to go through the next steps. 

When should I apply for AHPRA?

This varies and depends on your individual travel plans. The average application takes 4-6 months to come through at an ‘in principle’ stage. Once you reach this stage, you’ll need to go to one of the AHPRA offices in Australia within a certain timeframe. We’ll help you work out a time to apply that suits your travel plans.

What visas can I apply for?

The most common visa is a Working Holiday Visa (WHV) 417. This gives you full work and travel rights throughout Australia. There are also multiple sponsorship visas that we can help with if you’d like extend your stay. 

Can I travel and work with You+Aus?

We have multiple agencies within our network, operating across Australia’s cities and in rural and remote locations. You only need to register with You+Aus once; we can then transfer your file and set you up to work in each state and territory once you feeling like moving on. 

Can I work in rural and remote locations in Australia?

It takes incredible people to nurse within the rural and remote (R&R) communities of Australia. You+Aus gives extraordinary nurses and midwives the chance to build a career and lifestyle they love while making a lasting impact on communities that sorely need access to quality healthcare. Contracts in R&R locations can vary from a few weeks to a few months. To learn more about these placements, contact the You+Aus team today.

Do you help with organising accommodation?

We’ll give you advice on where to live, and local rental markets, based on your lifestyle and plans. If you decide to work in a rural or remote contract, clients sometimes offer accommodation and travel packages that cover a lot of your living expenses. 

How much will I get paid?

Salaries depend on a number of factors, including the part of Australia you work in, your level of experience, and the role type, e.g. permanent or casual. However, compared to the UK or Ireland our nurses always tell us just how good the pay is in Aus!

Will I be supported when I arrive in Australia?

Yes. Once You+Aus positions you with one of our agencies, you’ll be in good hands. Our local agencies were established as family-run businesses and are focused on supporting their people. The allocations team will help you find shifts in your preferred area of specialisation in locations that are close to home. If you decide that you want a change of scene, simply contact the You+Aus team and they’ll help you to transfer to another part of Aus. Should you decide to go into permanent work with a client, you will be supported by that hospital or facility.
