Spouse visa Subclass 100 Advice
Can anyone please advice asap about the permanent spouse visa subclass 100.
My wife joined me here in Australia on a provisional spouse visa subclass 309 in 2007. Last year she became permanent resident on subclass 100. She's been trying very hard to get a job for a quite a long time. Although this visa allows her to work and live permanently anywhere in Australia but the recruitment people in one of the government companies (where she got selected for one of the jobs) says that we can't offer her the job as she's on spouse visa and if she splits with her husband then the visa will be revoked.
I tried to explain that since she's now a permanent resident, her visa won't be revoked even if we split-up but they somehow not getting the point.
Can someone please provide some good convincing words, which will prove that what I'm saying is correct. Your earliest advice will help us a lot, otherwise they might offer this job to the second preferred candidate.
Thanks very much.

Yes, sc 100 is a permanent visa. This is a visa which allows the holder to travel to and enter Australia for a period of five years from the date of the visa grant. The visa holder can remain in Australia indefintiely. Even if she splits up with her hsuband (hope it does not happen) she can continue to remain in Australia indefinitely.
She should get the relevant details from the DIAC website and show them to the recruitment company. Just a point to note. Some government jobs (high security jobs) require citizenship. They will not employ PR holders.
