      Simon & Adelle

      About to start the first day of our new lives

      I can't believe that I actually found this site...
      Me and Adelle have been talking about moving to Australia for some time and finally agreed to actually move.
      I work for Openreach (BT) as an engineer and Adelle is in the Training/Resources arena, so between us we should be able to get our visas.
      Just doing a CCNA course at the mo..so a few months till we are ready to move.
      I thought that I'd get on this sooner rather than later as we are going to need all the help we can get...

      Hope to speak to you all soon.. Coz the questions will be comming in quick and fast the nearer we get to going...

      Welcome Simon and Adelle.

      You have found the right site to help you along the visa path.Myself an Openreach engineer,at the moment pole testing,but CST and UG trained as well, must be mad!!!!
      Applied and got our Visa through my electrical qualifications, but in Australia a telecoms linesperson(same as cst engineer)receives 60points just the same as a sparky.
      So good luck

      Lots of BT people on here! I used to work for Wholesale but was lucky enough to get new start which helped the Adelaide fund nicely!

      Good luck with your quest!

      Mainly the weather and the fact that the city is very laid back. I heard that you can cross it in around 20 mins and that is in their rush hour....

      Its got all the qualities of a large city without all the hustle and bustle.

      The other regions in Aus are either too hot or have more rain than the UK.
