I have been with this company since december 2013, I want to change my employee and I need to find a job in SA to be in home with my boy.
Do you think if I quick to my current sponsor for a city based position would affect our permanent residency??

Wit my current employee there is not options for a base role in Adelaide, my only option would be to get another job.

Please let me know your thoughts about it, I would really appreciate your recomendations.

Thanks in advance.
Hi Ross, it is impossible to predict how the department of Immigration will deal with individual cases, but there is always a risk that your visa will be canceled if you do not abide by the conditions. There could also be issues with future citizenship applications.

It is my view that if you feel that you have a valid reason to leave your employment and have made every effort to continue working there (make sure you go through proper, recordable procedures) and there are no issues with the employment contract you have signed, you should still continue to work in your nominated position in a regional (for RSMS purposes) area until the 2 year period is up.

From the DIBP website:

We might seek to cancel this visa if you begin employment but do not remain in the position for the full two years. If this happens, you will have a chance to explain, in writing, why your visa should not be cancelled.
