sorry forgot the other question.
we are going to adelaide as our agent said this state is bigger and includes adelaide as a place where he can work.
we are looking at the south suburbs to live but we have said it all depends on where mark works so that could change too.
Hi Tracey, i dont have city & guilds, i have 20 years experience, i made sure my references included all of the duties requied of a painter and decorator in Australia that you will find on the skilled occupation list,( with the exception of mixing colours with pigment). I had one reference from my current employer 9 years, and one reference from a site manager that said i had worked on his sites on a regular basis for 8 years before, between them they covered all the duties required. I also included a cv that had more details of my work history and other duties, including things such as understanding specifications, dealing with customers, surveyers ect. As i spent a lot of time selfemployed as a subcontractor i included a statuary declaration letter stating the companies i worked for so all dates were covered and that i was unable to trace the companies, my second reference colabarated some of this. I passed my TRA and they did not contact the people who gave me references.
hope this helps
