DOWN-UNDER (AUSTRALIA)

The Stress-Free Way to Start Your Aussie Adventure

Secure your Working Holiday Visa and head down under with the support, guidance and network to make a success of it all from day one.

Picture it… It’s Friday morning. You open your eyes to the warm sun beating down on your face. It takes a second to remember where you are, but when you do, you’re buzzing. Because today’s your last day working as a server in a Sydney restaurant. Tomorrow you’re heading south to find a gig in Melbourne. 


After that? Who knows, you’ll see where the mood takes you. There are no rules here. It’s just you, your new mates and spontaneous decision after spontaneous decision.


Your Aussie adventure could look something like this — or it could be completely different. Because this Working Holiday program is designed to give you full control over your adventure. You’ll enjoy our full support to get you started. Then, you’ll set off with a group of fellow Travel Grads and carve your own path. 


You might head north, south or venture out west. Who knows? That’s all part of the fun. 


This is the opportunity for you if… 


You’re an independent, adventurous individual who’s up for exploring the world solo, but you need a hand in getting started.


You dream of experiencing life down under, but you’re not keen on the idea of landing in a new country with no friends or support network.  


You’re as laid-back as you are organised, and the thought of going with the flow and hopping from job to job to fund your Aussie adventure excites you. 


You want to start your journey alongside people just like you — because going alone is no big deal, but meeting new people is what it’s all about.


Is that you? Sweet. We’ve got you. 


Since 2014, we’ve been connecting globally-minded grads with exciting alternatives to the traditional ‘grad job’ we’re all bored of hearing about. After starting our own careers abroad, we discovered the world has so much more to offer than life at home — and we’re all about helping you see and experience it.


We’ve designed our programs to create a safe, supported way to catapult yourself into the unknown. It’s not as scary as it sounds with us in your pocket: we’re here to guide, support and advise you every step of the way, so you can be sure you’re making a great decision.

 

Our soft-landing gives you a smooth,

Our soft-landing gives you a smooth, stress-free route into working in Australia and full control over what happens next. Live, work and travel the Land Down Under for anywhere from a few months up to 2 years. Excited? We are!


Land and head straight to your accommodation


By soft landing, we mean soft. As soon as you arrive, you’ll stay in pre-paid accommodation with your fellow Travel Grads for 2 weeks to take the pressure off while you find your feet. After that, we’re here to offer long-term accommodation guidance, so you’re never left alone. 


Go where you want, when you want


After your initial 2 weeks in Sydney, choose to go wherever you want, whenever you want. Whether you’re dreaming of the Gold Coast, Melbourne or going out west, it’s up to you. We’re here if you need us, but the path you take and the decisions you make are entirely yours. 


Leave the confusing stuff to us


The Travel Grad team is here to guide you through the Working Holiday Visa application process. We’ll tell you what you need to do and when you need to do it, so you can relax knowing you’ll glide through immigration. 


Access job-seeking advice


Take advantage of our connections with local recruitment companies and start looking for a job as soon as you’re ready. Experts in all things working holiday employment, they’ll point you in the direction of suitable opportunities, but it’s on you to get ‘em, giving you complete freedom to choose your path.


Arrive with a ready-made group of friends


Around 80% of Travel Grads are solo travellers. If that’s you too, welcome to the family. You’ll meet the rest of the group over WhatsApp before heading off, so you can chat, meet up and arrive in Aus with a ready-made group of mates.

I can’t really describe how much Travel Grad helped me to get here because there are so many documents to fill out to come out here and work. I was overwhelmed with the application process, and it really helped to have Travel Grad.”

Is this the right option for me?

The fact you’ve made it this far suggests it is. If you’re a laid-back, independent person looking for a stress-free, supported route into working in Australia, this is 100% the right opportunity for you. 


Can I apply with a friend or a group

Yes, absolutely! There’s no limit to the number of people you can travel with. As long as you’re all eligible for the visa, you can apply and fly out at the same time. 


Will I be with other Travel Grads?

You will. If you join our initial intake, you’ll join a handful of other Travel Grads and fly out at the same time. If you choose to join us when we officially launch the opportunity, the same applies.


Will I have help finding accommodation?

Yes. Our service includes your first two weeks of accommodation, so you don’t need to stress about finding a place as soon as you arrive. After that, it’s on you to decide where you want to live (and pay for it), but we’re here to offer advice and support.


How do I know I’ll get my money’s worth?

We’ve put every effort into creating a service that puts your safety and happiness first. That means going the extra mile to make sure you feel relaxed, supported and excited the entire time.


Is it possible I won’t like it?

So to make sure you do, we share everything you need to know about life on a Working Holiday Visa in Australia during the application process. If at any point before you leave, you feel another opportunity is more suitable, just let us know, and we’ll see what we can do! Then, once you’re there, our team is only ever a text or call away.
