Working Holiday Visa 6mths per job

Hi there,

My partner has been with his current employer for nearly 6 mths on a working holiday visa and he needs to either change jobs or get exceptional circumstances.

His current employer owns a different company/business which he is happy to pay him from but to be doing the same job, so it looks like he's changed. Is this allowed? It just says 6 months per employer, does it matter they're both owned by the same person?

If not, does anyone know if it's particularly difficult to get special considerations? It is his only income and I am a student so he is supporting me.

Thank you

We enquired about this for my partner and was advised it wasn't allowed. I don't know a lot about this but it would perhaps have something to do with how the businesses are set up too. My partners employer had one company name with lots of business' within it - so even though he worked for a different business it was the same employer.

Can't comment on the compassionate grounds unfortunately.
