Sponsoring spouse

Hi i recently got married and am about to start spouse visa process.
My question is when assessing a sponsor they take into account your use of the welfare system, which i have not used for 25+ years here.
Do they look at length in jobs? As i have a tendency to change follow work etc.
Have been back in the country since may was working 4 days after re entry.

They'll take into account a sponsors employment/financial situation in determing whether to request an Assurance of Support but if you've been working regularly and have evidence, it shouldn't be a problem for you.

When I wrote my covering letter to accompany the sponsor form (47SP??) I highlighted the fact that I have always had employment in Australia and have never received any government assistance nor has any of my immediate family members and that I shouldn't be considered a high risk for utilising those services.
I also highlighted my tertiary qualifications and the industry that I last worked in (tourism) which is never really short of job offerings.

Thanks for the replies makes sense.
Have another query.
Do they look at your credit history at all ie unpaid defaults when sponsoring?

hmmm it's hard to know where immi's access to personal information ends! By the looks of some other threads on here they can access your tax return details via the ATO. I would think that if they can access credit histories that they'd only do so in certain cases, ones that look like they might carry a high risk, no idea how they'd determine which ones.
