Electronic Engineers

    Recommended Posts

    Guest spongebob

    My family and I are looking to emigrate to Aus as soon as we can and are full of enthusiasm. Can anyone tell me whet the electronic industry in like in Adelaide? I am looking for some contract work so that I can get to grips with how things are undertaken in Australia compared to the UK. Any other Electronic engineers moved to Adelaide that could give me some advice would be fantastic.

    thanks cbeeb for that info. Checking it out. :)

     

    Thanks Kangomick but bit of a shame if no electronic engineering in Adelaide as that's where my wife would like to go. It is also one of the states that was offering state sponsorship.

     

    :nah:Where in Oz is all the electronic industry?

    Anyone know?:swoon:

    Thanks cbeeb. That is really helpful plus the information that jobs are being advertised, which means they must be wanting us! According to the new SOL electronic engineers are on there, plus all the info leading to state sponsorship say we are still on it for South Australia SS, Western Australia SS and Queensland SS. Looking promising but won't know for definite til nearer the 1st July.

    They appear to want people to be job sponsored which is hard from the other side of the world plus Australia seem to work by who you know which is difficult when not in the country.

    Thanks for help and advice. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks Ian.

    Know and love BAE Systems! Do you know if I need to have been resident in Oz for a number of years before getting security clearance to work within the Oz defence sector? I worked on safety equipment on nuclear subs here in the 1980's.

    If I can get security clearance then it may be worth applying for jobs on a contract basis to begin with until I find my feet so to speak. :)

     

    Where is the best place to look for electronic engineering jobs? I have been looking at a few web sites for recruitment agencies. Can you (or anyone else) suggest any on line newspapers that advertise these kind of jobs?

    Thanks Julian.

    Try the agencies here. My Husband is a Mecanical Engineer/project Manager. He registered with 3 and was offerred 2 jobs in 2 weeks and is now working for ETSA (big electrical supply company).

     

    Try Adecco, Hudson and TAD. Some of these may be facilities based agencies but are worth a shot.

    Thanks nettogonow.

     

    Will certainly try with the agencies. Just been on the advertiser website and there is a job on there that looks interesting. Not sure they will be interested as haven't got my visa yet what with all the new SOL etc and the office not taking visa applications til 1st July but no harm getting my CV out there. :wubclub:

    Thanks.

    Julian.

    Hi, my hubby is an electrical engineer and also used to work in the nuclear subs industry in the uk. He was employed by ASC (Australian Submarine Corporation) and needed permanent residency for level of security clearance his job required. ASC made sure we got PR before we arrived and then sorted out our citizenship as soon as we were eligible so he could get the next level of security clearance.

     

    Best of luck!
