Moving to Gold Coast

I'm planning on moving to the Gold Coast in Jan and I want to be able to work as soon as possible. Is there anywhere I can go that will give me the steps that I need to take to be able to do this?

I'm imagining that there has to be some office I have to register with in order to work and pay taxes... I just need some help/guidance on where to go.

Thanks in advance.

Which visa are you holding? Does it comes with working rights?

You need to get a Tax File Number from the Australian Taxation Office.

I have a work/holiday visa 462. I am able to work, but not with the same employer for more than 6 months.

Depending on what visa you're on, keep in mind that it can be pretty tough to find jobs. It took me two months to get my first, about three months to find my second after the first one ceased, and about a month to find my third. It's not going to be immediate.

As GBP said, getting your TFN is probably the first order of business. You'll also want to set up an Australian bank account that your employer can pay into.
