OK, the idea of this thread is due to all of the doom and gloom posts and threads about how bad it is here at the moment it will give a chance to people who have came out in the last year/ year and a bit to put up their stories to show that people still can and still are coming to Adelaide and making it work.
So with that in mind here I go. We came out in January last year on a state sponsored visa. I'm a sparkie and knew in advance of the gap training required so had the courses booked in in advance. Managed to get work at the first time of asking and have been in work ever since and have a contractors licence. Have now changed jobs slightly to training and am loving it. The wife has re trained as an aged carer and next week starts her enrolled nursing course. All of this has been either free or massively subsidised through skills for all which is great for permanent visa holders and Aussies alike. I am also doing an advanced diploma in electrical engineering through the same program and as its classed as in demand it's completely free aswell and through work have completed my cert 4 in training and assessment.
we came from the south of the UK and costs are for us about the same but I earn much more and seem to have more left over at the end of the week.
The kids have settled in great and the schooling is a good level, we have no complaints with it atall.
Their was a lot of hard work to get hear but it's everything we wanted and we love our life here, absolutely no regrets. Do your research and good luck to those coming over.
Right who's next ?????
