Real Estate but no qualifiactions.....
My family and I are looking into moving to australia but we are finding it difficult to get our heads around the employer sponsor visa can any one tell me if an employer would employ me in Real Estate even though I don't have the qualifications from England? I have been in the trade for 13 years and managed my own real estate branch, so I have the experience but nothing in the form of qualifications.
I'm thinking of sending my CV over to a receuitment agency to see if they would consider, there seems to be lots of jobs in this trade.
Any help would be appreciated

Not absolutely sure but think you go to Uni over here for this type of work. You could try the Uni sites as well as TAFE (like college) and seems a good idea to suss out the agencies etc.
You would have to get your real estate ticket as far as I know.
Real estate agencies are always on the look out for prospective candidates.
Even I was asked once if I fancied a career in real estate.
This was through Century 21 at Morphett Vale, there is an online test/ profile evaluation somewhere!
Try contacting them and see what they need - John Druitt is a nice bloke there.
Thanks you Kelly for the reply; I've just about finished putting together my C.V so I hope to email over to some agencies fairly soon, I hope I get a possitive responce. wish me luck :-)

We will keep trying and see what we get, but thanks for your help. This site is fab. I've learnt so much in a few days already :-)
