Work in New Zealand on PR Bridging B Visa in Australia

Hi everyone!
I am on GSM PR Bridging visa and if I have been offered a job in New Zealand. What are the options do I have? Can I take Bridging B visa and come back to Australia after every 3 months for renewal with the substantial reason: I need this work experience as part of professional development? I really need this job because even to find a good job in Australia, I need this experience.

As far as NZ visa goes, I am thinking of applying temporary work visa.

Good suggestions will be highly appreciated!

Do you mean you are on a Bridging visa while you are awaiting a result of a PR application?
People can apply for the Bridging Visa B which allows travel and you can always see if you can get one.
As to returning every 3 months and re-applying, again you can always put in an application but whether you get one or more is another matter.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I am on Bridging Visa and awaiting result for the outcome of my PR application. I filed my application last year August under Critical Skills List and I am expecting the outcome of the application. The problem is that these days Immigration people don't make any promises and even they don't know that when the application will be finalized (external and internal checks....whatever that is), even though people on critical skills list should get their PR in less than a year.

Regarding Bridging B visa, does "gaining professional experience" make a substantial reason? And does going to NZ help, as NZ has reciprocal agreement for working for PR and citizenship holders?

It is not just " these days " but promises are never good to rely on and I do not know that Immi ever make any.
They have Service standards they attempt to adhere to as targets but there are many differnt factors involved and much outside of their immediate control - Client Service Charter
By external checks they probably mean character checks by agencies external to Immi for their role is managing the immigration system.
As to reasons accepted by Immi for a Bridging Visa B, asking them or putting in an application ought to get you an answer.

Just a question on same lines, can substantial visa holders of New Zealand can come to Australia for visit? I have heard that student visa holders of Australia can visit New Zealand for tourism.

Anybody other than Australian or New Zealand passport holders need a visa to legally enter Australia.
New Zealand does have some visa free countries for visits of up to three months on their immigration list.
Immigration New Zealand is where you can check their regulations.
