Lots of printing work over here. Hubby is a print finisher. However I'm quite suprised at how many guys are coming over here in that line of work. Went to a bbq recently and 5 out of the 7 guys there were in the printing trade.
In our experience wages vary greatly between companies.
yes i know, there is going to be no printers left over here soon. not massively worried about wages, just need that job but not sure when to start applying, i have only just sent my t.r.a
My husband and a few others on this forum are in the printing / finishing game here. Work seems to be plentifull but not very well paid. Russ is a finisher and works for one of the larger companies - Finsbury Green. They have a big printing section as well as finishing and I know they have previously sponsored Brits. Salary is around $43,000 on a split shift - mornings and afternoons
thanks Donna judging by the response, there does seem to be quite a few jobs out there, not sure when to start applying i have only just sent my t.r.a
have you tried looking on the job websites such as seek.com or careeone.com.au? These will give you more of an idea. I would have thought that printing like most trade type jobs are more popular up north, people do struggle and it can take alot of applications to get in as we have found x
thanks for the help have looked on a few sites. judging from some of the help i have had from you guys over there.
