@Nick - so just to confirm, let's say my partner arrived in July, has an initial 3 months on a tourist visa so leaves in October for a small holiday somewhere, comes back in mid October and starts another 3 month gig. Normal tourist visa rules would say they have to leave again in mid January and that the 12 month visa would expire in July 2020.

But you're saying that if they come back in mid October, apply for the 820 in November-ish and then don't leave in January the Bridging Visa takes effect immediately in January? Wouldn't they be considered an overstayer in January, seriously undermining our 820 visa application?
