The Work Adventure Down Under is not a placement program. All participants are issued a Working Holiday Visa, which allows casual employment. 99% of our participants look for work when they arrive down under. CCUSA provides comprehensive advice on the types of jobs to look for and how to find them before you leave home.

You can expect to earn about $400-$500 (in local currency) per week for working a typical 40-hour week. Be sure to bring sufficient funds with you to hold you over until your first paycheck.
