The Austrian Embassy is not in a position to assist Austrian job-searchers in looking for work in Australia or New Zealand. You can, however, research employment opportunities on the Internet. There is a number of employment agencies which you find with search engines (e.g. Google, search word "employment Australia/New Zealand").
