Top 10 reasons to temp in Australia
1. Temp and travel
Unitemps has now launched at Griffith University on the Gold Coast and also have an office based in Melbourne with plans to launch a new franchise soon. This gives you two possible bases in Australia as you alternate between travelling around and working. Working in Australia lets you experience a new culture and climate while being able to support yourself financially.
2. Beautiful scenery and hiking
Both the Brisbane and Victoria offer beautiful scenery, idyllic beaches and cosmopolitan cities to enjoy. Victoria is home to the Yara Valley, the Dandenong Ranges National Park, and the Grampians, while the Gold Coast's glorious beaches are renowned, so there is plenty of opportunity for lazy days by the beach or adventurous day trips – all on your doorstep and all enjoyable while being a short distance from work, making for a great work/life balance.
3. Escape the UK drizzle
The UK summers often underwhelm and even though you’d be going to Australia during the winter, the climate is still very mild and temperate. If you were planning escaping Britain over the summer anyway, what better place to go than Australia?
4. Take a gap year
Temporary visas for foreign visitors are straightforward to arrange so taking a year out after you graduate could be more than just a pipe dream with opportunities available to fund it by finding work through Unitemps.
5. 2018 Commonwealth Games
The 2018 Commonwealth Games take place in the Gold Coast next year – so get ahead of the crowd and plan to get the best seat in the house for this once in a lifetime event, and enjoy Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Cycling and more in what is sure to be an unforgettable event.
6. Get out of a rut
We all start to tire of the same surroundings every day but if you’re feeling like your career needs a change, Unitemps gives you the chance to shake things up while enjoying a new backdrop too. The best thing is you don’t have to give up your career to go see the world.
7. See the Great Barrier Reef
Take the chance to go snorkelling and discover one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland. Between 15 and 150 kilometres offshore, the reef is the home of vivid coral and where you will get the most spectacular views of sea life and over 150 species of tropical fish.
8. Stop off in Asia while you’re there
You've already travelled to the other side of the world so get the most out of it and stop by destinations in Asia, such as Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
9. Kangaroos and Koalas
Australia is the home of kangaroos and koalas, potentially the cutest animals ever. With the exception of our own Utie the bear obviously. Don’t miss out the chance to see them up close.
10. Visit the set of ‘Neighbours’
If you’re a fan of Australian soap operas, you can visit the set of 'Neighbours' in Melbourne while the 'Home and Away' tour is in Sydney.
