WHV while waiting for 457 approval

Hi there,

I have received a job offer in Australia, my contract starts way before the visa will be issued (accordingly with the current processing time).
my main problem is that the contract has an end that can't be posticipated, so independently by the time I start, the contract will end the date indicated.

Can I enter and, more importantly, start working for this position with a working holiday visa while I wait for this approval?

In case the visa is not granted before 6 months (when I need to change employer) can I apply for a bridge visa?

You could use a WHV.

Note in doing so you probably won't be able to get a subsequent WHV as you probably won't complete the qualifying work requirement.

Please ensure you are aware of the risks prior to visiting Australia - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eNEeq5qGh8I
