I just had a look at some of the job sites for ESL and the only one that came up with more than one was Seek.com.au . This ad is for Southbank TAFE, which is a government position, so if you meet that criteria you'll be good for anything else. The Cert IV that they're talking about you can do in about 6 weeks at any TAFE in Brisbane and is standard for all teachers at actual schools across QLD (maybe not for private English centers, though).
This is a private place:

Never heard of them (unless they're the school attached to QUT, in which case I've heard but not the name) but looks professional.
I don't think TEFL counts for TESOL.. but CELTA probably does

My experience in this area is all based on people I know already living in Australia. One couple I know have been married for a year, and the partner from the UK still does not have PR!!
