Wanted Down Under Series 3 – How to Apply for Wanted Down Under

Home / Blog / Wanted Down Under Series 3 – How to Apply for Wanted Down Under

BBC Wanted Down Under - How to apply for series three of wanted down underI had an email from Helen Crawley the researcher at the BBC who helped find the ‘contestants’ to appear on The BBC’s Popular Wanted Down Under Program.

She was writing to remind me that the advert I posted a little while back is now out of date (I’d imagine she was getting a little tired of the phone calls and emails so sorry Helen :( )

She has asked me to update the contact details. So if any of you folks are interested in appearing in the Third Series of Wanted Down under then you need to email the BBC at: wanteddownunder@bbc.co.uk.

Helen was a little none committal though saying the BBC ‘may still need applicants for series 3 should we make one’ so keep this in mind when sending your emails off.

Having said that, with the popularity of the first two series of Wanted Down Under I would be very surprised if they don’t make a third or perhaps even a forth series.

So there you go folks, it’s official and you heard it here first (perhaps ;) ). If you want to apply for the third series of the BBC’s Wanted down Under program then email the BBC at the address above.

    My husband is due to retire from the Army in 18 months time after 23 years service (39 yrs old). I am a Secondary Design and Technology Teacher we have an eight year old son who loves the outdoors and is an excellent footballer. Both us our jobs (my husband’s trade is a Pharmacy Technician) are on the skills shortage lists and we are considering a move to New Zealand. Our families were both in the forces and are scattered all over and are enthusiastic about travelling down under to visit us and we have relatives (my sister and her family, also about to leave the forces) who would probably follow us out there too!! So we have very little reason not to go have spent years living and working overseas and visited oz. Only thing stopping us is having not experienced New Zealand, keen to try and would love the help to get down under. Fingers crossed.

We have 3 children and my husband would up and move tomorrow but I am really worried. I hope your trip goes well and would love to hear how far you have got and the area you think suits with children.

    Our whole family would love to emegrate to Australia, we looked into this approximately 7 years ago, however the death of my mother 6 years ago and my father 2 years ago put a hold on our plans.

    We are looking for a new life as “our” family. We very much enjoy spedning time together its just getting it here and also the weather in which to do it. I am currently employed in the Private Health Care Sector as a PA and my husband runs his own contract cleaning company, however is also a telecomms engineer/rigger after working for BT for 11 years.

    We are not looking for miracles just a happy and contented family life with more time to spend with each other. Our new motto has to be work to live not live to work.

    We would love to relocate to Brisbane, my husbands sister currently lives in NZ and would also relocate should we get out there. We haven’t seen her for 6 years!!!

    IF you are looking for someone to go and be part of your programme please get in touch, we are hoping to be out there by summer next year.

    Hi,
    My husband and I really want to immigrate to Perth Australia. We are both over 45 so cannot pass the Skills Assessment. We looked for vacancies in Perth on the web site and found loads of Facilities jobs which is our expertise.

    We are both very hard working and believe we have a lot to offer Australia even though we are older. (Martin 57, myself 52) (We are young at heart and enjoy life)

    Martin’s dad lives in Perth as well as his sister. We are finding it so frustrating as we would dearly love to work and eventually retire there. (we are going to apply for migration through sponsorship and AoS means – wish us luck)

    Please can we have the opportunity to be on your show and help us achieve our dream? Over 45’s have a lot to offer as well you know!!

    Very much appreciated. Martin & Karen

    Hi my name is Debbie, my husband Robert and our 3 kids 5,9,13 would love the oppertunity to be on your show.
    we Have been thinking of moving down under for a while now but have no real idea how to go about it.

    As we only wont to do this once it would be great to have your expertise in the country , how to find jobs, house schools ect.

    we wont a better life for our kids and this seems the perfect place we did look at spain a few years ago but decided this was not for us.

    My husband is a floor finisher and we know this is a sought after trade down under i am a support worker for the elderly and disabled, so i hope finding jobs would not be too difficult.

    Please please help us fulfill this dream to give both ourselves and our kids the best start in our new life downunder.

    We are definatly going to do it it would just be so much nicer and easier with your help.

    Thank you

    Hi There,

    After spending about a year pondering on the idea of potentially moving to Oz, myself and my partner of 6 years have finally decided to take the plunge and see if it’s really for us! We are in our early twenties and are currently renting a really nice house in Nottingham but can’t help but feel tied down and enthusiastic about emigrating. I currently work as IT recruitment consultant and my partner is a qualified fitness advisor with hopes of getting into the fire service.

    We love the idea of having the opportunity to start a new life in a beautiful place and be different from the crowd! We have friends and family who are currently in process of relocating and we are keen to find out more and the best way to go about it. We think wanted down under would be a great opportunity to find out about employers, property and generally get the feel for life in Oz! At present apart from work we don’t have any major commitments and are looking to settle down and start a family of our own in Sydney!

    We are not really sure which visa would be most suitable for us?

    Please help us make a positive change in our lifes and really make the most of our future.

    Thank you,

    Sabina

    My hubby (29) and I (31) and our 4 kids (14,13,10 and 6) are considering a move to Australia. My hubby is a water leakage technician. We really want to leave Britain behind for Australia. We are not sure where to start. We have been doing lots of research. We really want to do this and any help and advice would be gratefully received.We would love to appear n the next series as we have watched the previous ones and they have really helped the people on it. We would rent for the first six months until my hubby had settled in a job(he would need a job offer before moving out there) then we would hopefully get a mortgage for around £150,000. I hope we can achieve our dream so our children can have a better future.

We all fell in love with Oz and would like to emigrate, I said to my family over there I wanted to claim political asylum so we could have stayed. I would recommend going out for a holiday to make sure it is for you.

    Hello
    Watching “Wanted Down Under” has rekindled a desire we had about 3 years ago to emmigrate to New Zealand. We went over for 3 weeks in 2005, and crammed in the North and South Islands, a bit of a blur, but unforgettable. At that time my husband was working on getting the correct qualifications, and now has them. The reason for emmigrating is cliched but honest, “A better Lifestyle” Our daughter is 10 and a keen athlete, but restricted by facilities and weather. We have our own home, but in the UK cannot expect to progress to anything bigger or better. A new land seems to offer opportunities which seem to have ceased in the UK.
    Thanks

    The easy part is imigrating, when or if you decide to return then that can be very diffiicult indeed. Some coverage ought to be given to those you have returned home. We were in N Z for 7 years, returning to the U K with a family, no job, and no home, was very risky, difficult, and traumatic.

    The grass always seems greener on the otherside of the street, and a short visit is not enough to fully appreciate the differences, and difficulties. NHS being just one example.

    Perhaps you should add a little more caution to your prospective emmigarants.

    Despite our economic situation, and our politicians, we have been back home 31 years now and have no regrest at all.

    Hi, My Wife and I are currently looking into moving to Western Australia. We’ve just been married a year and are looking to start a family and we would like to give them the best possible start in life that we can. With the current economy crisis in the U.K. we both feel that Northern Ireland has got nothing to offer us and it’ll be even worse when it comes for us to bring up children. If we got the opportunity to go to Australia then I would very much consider joining the Royal Australian Air Force as I’ve had military experience with our very own Royal Air Force. My wife would look for an administration job in an office. We would both be very grateful if you and your team would consider us for the next series and give us the boost we need to fulfilling our dreams. Thanks

    Me and my partner have recently been watching an episode of Wanted down under and have confirmed that this is something we have both always dreamed about. A completely different way of life with a lot more opportunities for us and our gorgeous 2 year old girl. My partner is a diesel fitter and I work for a bank, we are both 37 years old and whilst we have not ever visited the likes of Australia or perhaps Canada, we would love to be given the chance to sample this life in order to make a decision to emmigrate or not.

We have already started the process of applying for Visas however we feel an oppurtunity like this, to be able to look at separate locations within WA would really help with choosing the correct destination and giving us every possible chance of making a go of it.

    Hmmm i have emailed them today durrrrrr far too late the 3rd series as already started i love the programme i get butterflies watching it and have actually had tears after it as i am so jealous we not there , here hoping they do a 4th series.

    Mty husband was offered a job last june but are daughter was only 6 weeks old and we felt it wasnt the right time big regrets now, My husband and i love both new zealand and australia even tho we never been but everything comes down to money and at the moment we just cant afford a trip , then the papers and the security of having some monay to fall back on in a emergancy.

    Heres hoping we can win some money some where.

    Wanted down under definitely opens up your eyes to the exciting possibilities of life abroad. My partner and i would love to explore life down under as we feel its time to make a life together with the best opportunities for our 9 week old daughter…

    I am interested if you are doing a 3rd series on Wanted Down Under. My family and I have considered moving to Australia for a few years but the time has never been right. My partner (aged 34) is in the building trade working as a dryliner and also has worked as an artexer since leaving school.

    We have an 8 year old son together and our preferred location would be to live in Perth as my sister-in-law and her family have recently moved there.

    Kind regards.

    However, the other side of the world has loads of positions available for a skilled worker (nurse) like myself to apply. Wow what an opportunity, we just need help to decide where is best and what would be ideal for our young family.
    My husband is an ex soldier who has all his driving catagories and we have a little boy who’s 4 years old and a 15 month old son.
    we would love the best opportunity for our family, so if there is another series to be made of your popular programme, we would love to participate of what would truly be life changing and beneficial for us.

    I applied on the 16 March and received an automated response back saying due to the high number of applicants they were no longer looking for contributors for the next series. They would however keep our details on file for consideration for a future series.

    sent an application e-mail to the bbc last week, and i got the same automated reply that i got when i first e-mailed them.
    will wait and see what happens in the near future.
    mark: it does seem odd that some people have not read your posting clearly.
    it was through this site that i found out about a possible series 3.

    Hi Chaps
    As a family we would like to emigrate to a place such as Australia or New Zealand. Doing what I do appears to be a draw back in as such that there does not appear to be an opening or a position of employment for such a trade, either that or that you have to be a citizen of Australia in order to obtain such a position.
    Please would you consider us for your programe

    Hi,

    We have three lovely children ages 10, 13 and 15, we have been watching the series ‘Wanted Down Under’. We are very interested in moving to New Zealand and have been for quite some time. We would be very interested in becoming applicants on the next series. Hope to hear from you ASAP so we can let you know more about our family.

    Thanks Zoë

    My husband who is a joiner has been wanting us to consider emigrating to Australia for a couple of years now as he firmly believes that we would be able to provide a far more better quality of life for our 5 year old daughter. I have many reservations as I believe I would find it difficult to leave my family behind. We have been watching Wanted Down Under and would seriously like to be considered for the next series.

It is for our friends, they kee telling us how they have no regrets and a better life fr themselves as well as a better education for their daughter.

    Me and my husband have registered our interest online to immigrate to New Zealand. As we feel that this would give our children, Dominic 7 and Emily 5 a better start in life, with a better life style for all as a family.

    My husband and I have just started our visa application to live in Australia however, we have not visited Australia as a family before as we now have a 16 month old daughter.

    The majority of my husbands family live in Australia and I feel my daughter would have a better future.

    Should there be a series 3, please consider us.

    Many thanks
