any one out there know of any l/press printers looking for printers
Hi there Kiltedscot.
Iam also a printer who went on a reccie in July.
I visited a printers in Adelaide called Stateweb they had only been running for 6months and were running a Heidelberg m600 8unit 32pp press. The boss said he was looking for minders in the near future when he built the work up. He was also looking to expand and put more presses in in the next 3 yrs. If you need the name and adress to contact them just pm me.
What sort of presses do you work on?
we are hopefully going to be out in adelaide in Mrach time 08
best regards Steve and Tracy
best of luck
My hubby is a print finisher and had 5 job offers since getting here in June.His company are desparate for printers.However the money is nowhere as good as back in the UK.You'll have no probs in getting a job.

Hi Nick, well i have`nt got anything lined up to go to as yet so if you can give me any pointers then that would be great. Been working on a letter press web fed Nilpeter (7 colour) press for past 18 years producing self adhesive labels. Would be intrested in full or part time work and consider machine minders job also. hope your all enjoying life down under, we hope to be there on the 5th of Jan. Wife starts her job in Flinders medical centre on the 7th
My hubbir works for Finsbury Green printing which is one of the largest in Adelaide. Like Andrew, Russ is not in printing but in Print Finishing. They do always seem to be hiring - Russ tried them when he got here, had an interview the following day and started on the Monday after.
Wages are much much lower and living costs are not in line but saying that we don't seem to spend as much as we did (except on food). However, there is definitely not much left by the end of the week.
Wouldn't go back if you paid me
Hi everybody Iam a printer when you are saying wages are not as much what are we talking please give me some idea thanks Steve from Bolton

when are you hoping to be out there. Have you started the visa process?
Hi steve and tracy I have just sent off my SA sponsorship on Friday,can you give me any info regarding what information I need to be gathering for my visa.
Hi steve. have you done your T.R.A. yet. I am being sponsored by a company in Adelaide and i think his paperwork has to be approved by the S.A.Government i'm waitng for my emigration agent to tell me when to do the rest of the paperwork (visa application). We haven't even had our meds e.t.c. but they say it shouldn't be that long before we have to do that. You may be infront of us in that respect.
