457 Visa before Bridging Visa comes into effect?

Hi All,

My boyfriend is coming over from the UK in 2 wks. He is going to come in on an ETA and then we are planning on applying for the defacto visa onshore. I know he can’t look for work once he gets the bridging visa, but my question is, if he manages to find someone to sponsor him and apply for a 457 visa within the first 3 months he is here is that allowed? Because technically he is still on the ETA then and the bridging visa doesn’t come into effect until that expires? And if that is allowed, does the 457 need to be approved before the ETA expires?

Feels like a bit of a grey area… we are just desperate for any loophole where he might be able to look for work… has anyone tried this?!
