I have just joined this site today as we are hoping to migrate to the Adelaide area.
We have been doing quite a lot of research and are attending a seminar in Leeds on 11th May 2008, but my head is spinning.
We have been told by several companies that Andrew qualifies for a skilled visa, but I am a bid worried about appointing a company to deal with the application.
I wondered if anybody had any recommendations for us, the best companies usually gain there business through word of mouth (I know Andrew does)!!
Thanks for any help it is very much appreciated.
We are using Go Matilda, and so are plenty of others.
Don't think you can go wrong with them.
Thanks for getting in touch.
I have contacted them and hopefully we can get on with the process now before my mind goes completely numb!!
we are also using Go Matilda! great for us!!!
many of them do a pre interview for free to check if you have a chance!!
i wouldn't even trust any others
We used Ian Harrop (www.ianharrop.co.uk) and they don't do much advertising, preferring to rely on word of mouth.
Fantastic, and worth every penny.
Welcome to PIA.
We used Four Corners and found them to be really helpful. They also have a great website that you can use but only if you are a client.
Hope all goes well for you and you get a good agent.
Some agencies specialise in certain types of Skills assessment, I found the best for me was ptlabs (IT, ACS specialist).
Welcome to PIA,
We did the whole thing by ourselves so can't help with the agent thing. I really wouldn't worry as regard the visa. If they say Andrew qualifies then he will.
When we started this journey we tried The Emmigration Group based in Chester, however we personaly found them expensive and not that helpful, we then searched the net and looked at recomondations from this site and are now using Go Matildia based in Southampton our agent there is great allways positive and full of answers and we email her loads.

Several people have recommended Go Madilda so I have contacted them and one of their agents is going to contact me this week, if that goes well I will definately be using them, so thanks again to everyone who has kindly given advice, it really does help!
Sharron & Andrew:)
