      Hi Naomi
      We havent used a migration agent as we didnt last time during our sponsorship, that said, we are anxious that everything is going to go to plan. We have logged and paid for the skilled visa and will feel so much better when a case worker gets in touch with us so at least we can just give him /her what they ask for. I just didnt want to pay for somebody to do a job that we could do ourselves. Good Luck with yours

I receive txt messages daily asking if I know who's taking on.
      Perhaps people need to look further out away from the city or consider self employed rather than contracts? I am throwing this out there as I know a couple of electricians who are self employed who live well away from metropolitan Adelaide who are flat out and have been for a while now, have hired other people and who some weeks are working 7 days a week they have so much work on. I'm not saying this is the norm but they have not relied on the hospital work or contracts in the city for themselves and have opted to go work for themselves in the past couple of years and built up their own businesses.

      Not saying its a solution for everyone or a magic fix or anything close to that but it may be that looking into self employed work is worthwhile if employed work isn't happening or doesn't happen early on. I realise their are costs with being self employed but it is something prospective migrants could look into before migrating and keep it in mind for the future if they feel that going self employed is something to consider.

      Prospective migrants wouldn't be able to work self employed or would find it difficult to work on ABN due to the fact that the new migrant would be without an electrical licence.

      Are not all migrants in the same boat with the electrical licence and needing to gain it before they can seek employment? Other than be an apprentice?

      I get the point you make, fair comment, but if/when someone does gain their electrical licence they could work self employed then if they wished could they not? An ABN is not difficult to get and although there would be outlay in going self employed, if someone wanted to go that route and had planned/prepared for various outcomes when planning their move, it would be something they could do if they wanted.

      Perhaps the people I know are different in that they didn't work on the RAH and chose to move from employed to self employed and focused on and built up their own local business in the past couple of years. I appreciate its not for everyone and its not without risk but its going ok for them and they are working. I don't know how the Aussie would be faring if he hadn't gone self employed, nor the Brit, but both are doing well for themselves now.

      And of course, not everyone can or will go self employed and people will continue to seek employment in a market that is probably rather saturated at present off the back of the big RAH build. Perhaps some of those from out of state or here on temp visas or even SS may move interstate for work and to live (as you have done). I hope the job market evens out a little in the coming months as some head elsewhere and others find work where they are looking locally.

      I'm not getting any info about you from anywhere or anyone other than what you post yourself on here. I think you interpreted my post differently to how it was written. I had written an in general about people heading back to or moving to other states and also mentioned temp visa or SS (which is short for state sponsorship/PR visa holders). That was not aimed at you specifically, it was an in general comment and covered a number of bases re what people from different situations or visa types might do to seek work if its not happening here.

      I did then mention that you yourself had gone interstate to live and work was all as you had said this elsewhere on the forum recently. I don't see where I stuck you with being a temp visa holder in that but appreciate it may have been read differently to how it was intended.

      I have just received my permanent residency visa and we are hoping to move ASAP but we need to sell the house in the uk first which is proving difficult at the moment. We need to activate visas by April 2017 but me my wife and 19 and 7 year old daughters are coming with us. I'm an electrician and completed the skills assessment through Vetassess and the process was really quick apart from the mountain of paperwork you have to put together to prove you say what you are. I have read a few negatives about the electrical work in Adelaide. I am aware of the extra certification I need to do to get to Aussie standards and as a family we know it may me tough for the first year but hopefully it will all be worth it in the long run. Hopefully I will find a company who will be willing to give me an opportunity to prove myself and as soon as we know more about our moving date I wil email as many companies as I can to see what's available. I have heard positives and negatives about it but if anyone has any info of the best way into the industry over there I would be very grateful. We have looked at houses in the suburbs mainly to the south of Adelaide as you seem to get more for you're money but we will look wherever I can find the work.
