Should we move to Lismore?
We are thinking about making the move to the Northern Rivers. Somewhere between Lismore and Ballina perhaps.
Is this a good idea? We would plan to stay for maybe 10 years (until the boys finish primary school).
My wife is a physiotherapist and I am in management with a background in education and health.
We like the area and it would bring us closer to family and the lifestyle we enjoy.
We do have a few concerns about jobs and services. We know we will likely take a pay cut but the internet has suggested that jobs might be hard to come by and that as a newcomer we might not be welcomed. Is this really the case?
We would bring a lot to the place. We work hard, volunteer, buy local etc.
Will Lismore and surrounds give us a fair go if we make the move?
