[ 1 ]  Aside from her Australian playing/coaching experiences, Tanya Oxtoby (Bristol City )  seems to have built an English  playing/coaching CV :  player for Doncaster Rover Belles ( 2012 );  manager for  Nottingham Forest (w) (2012-2014);  director of development for Notts County Ladies ( 2016 ) ; assistant Birmingham City Ladies ( 2016 - 2018 )  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanya_Oxtoby

[ 2 ] I think Joe Montemurro ( Arsenal Women ) might have got a recommendation from Kim Little: she  was a player ( on loan ) for and he was the manager of Melbourne City women who won the Australian W-League double in 2015-2016.

[ 3 ] Australia ( the Matildas ) are currently ranked 8th in the world and were ranked as high as 4rth in 2017. The Australian W-League (the top flight domestic women's league )  is eleven years old and went full professional last year with an average player salary of A$ 15 500 - A$ 17 400.  The Australian W-League is a short 12-round competition plus playoffs  but because of the good climate, the  Australian women can play football all year round. After W-League season ends,  top Australian players go abroad and play in other top women's leagues -- primarily the USA and Norway. While rank-and-file W-League players who do not go abroad play in tier two amateur/semi-pro state leagues.

[ 4  ] Seen a rumour that  Sam Kerr ( the world-class  Australian striker ) might not be going back to Australia after the NWSL ( USA ) season is over.( She is currently the NWSL leading goal scorer. )   PSG feminines is the stronger  rumour but an England side may have expressed some interest in her.
