Are you looking to work in IT specifically? It may be hard to find something part time in IT (I'm assuming you can only work 20hrs a week with your Visa?)

If your English skills are good, hospitality and retail are always a good start.

What type of working are you looking at?

According to https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Stud/...ditions-family

Normally you cannot work more than 40 hours per fortnight (20 hrs per week) unless the student is on subclass 573, 574 or 576.

During official course holidays a dependent visa holder can work unlimited hours.

Other than that, people may be breaching visa conditions and this could lead to a visa being cancelled.

As far as I know if your spouse is not studying diploma you can work unlimited. check your visa page on your passport for the conditions, they normally come in 4 disits. Google them up. Regards
