Accounting work in Sydney for 55- yr old guy

Dear All,
Do you think it is easy to find an accountant job in Sydney?
I'm 55-year old and qualified accountant from ACCA and Hong Kong. I've been working in accounting field for over 20 years in Hong Kong & mainland China.
Recently I migrated to Sydney and would like to get a simple accountant job.
I got a Cert IV in accounting from Open College of Australia.
I've been applying jobs through Seek com for over a year but so far in vain.
Can you give me some advice?
Thank you very much!

I would make sure that your resume stands out.

Highlight the skills and experience that you have, which employers are looking for here in Sydney.

Yes there is a lot of competition for accounting jobs & this is why I recommend that you make your resume stand out, highlighting what employers are looking for. I would also highlight your achievements so that your resume gets picked out of 200 or more resumes.
