How old is he? Most Brits qualify for WHV which grants him a chance to work for any employer he chooses and travel for a year. This visa is extendable. A lot of Brits use it to get local experience and obtain sponsorship for a longer term or permanenet visa afterwards. Check this out Wizard

Working holiday visa is for one year, extendable for Brits to two years under certain condition (must work in rural area or farm for at least 3 months).
This visa is granted in about a fortnight.

That's good to know. Although I have heard that applying for de facto visa within Australia can end up costing much more. Is this the case?

Working holiday visas are only available for ages 18-30, not sure how old you are but the rule is you must lodge your working holiday visa app before your 31st birthday. I personally have a year... Gulp
