Painters wanted

    Recommended Posts

    If there are any painters out there looking for work please give me a call, even if you have not arrived here yet but intend to soon. Things are getting really busy and i don't like turning work away. I pay according to experience.

     

    thanks

    He's glad to hear there's work going... is work mainly in your neck of the woods or is it busy all over Adelaide?

    There is loads around where i live because there are loads of new houses going up and lots more planned. Not sure sure about other areas, but thers has been lots of building also in the north, how much work is available and how long it will last up there, maybe someone else knows.

     

    If you are good at your job you will get work, but it's all about who you know here and it takes a while for you to become known, but then there is as much work as you want.

     

    Cheers

    Hi Dawn, i have considered an apprentice but to be honest at this moment in time i need painters as i don't have the time it takes to train someone, but would think again about it in the near future.

     

    Has your friend tried getting in contact with the Master builders association or HIA as they both arrange apprentices and employers and get them together.

     

    cheers

    Hi Kevin - thanks for this - I've fowarded on the details via a private message on Facebook. It is feared that after trying Adelaide for quite a while, this lad will move to Melbourne, where there's more opportunity for him. Cheers Dawn

    There does seem to be some opportunities coming up in other states, but i also think there will be trades leaving adelaide for the money in these other states too, in the very near future, so the demand for skilled trade in adelaide will grow.

     

    I do want to take on apprentices in the future but as i am just starting to expand, this moment in time isn't right for me. But having looked into it, i feel sorry for teenagers trying to get qualified as there is only a small amount of funding available to them and it still does not make it affordable for the likes of me to take someone on, where i will loose time in training them to start with.

     

    if anyone does need any advice with finding painting work, please do get in contact, i will help the best i can, even if it is only advice or a phone number you can try.

     

    It is all about who you know in Adelaide with trade jobs.

     

    good luck to those starting out.

    Hi Nigel,

     

    please do keep my number, i may be able to help somehow when you are over, keep in mind if you arrive right on top of xmas that most trades close down for 2 to 3 weeks and it does take a while for things to get going after xmas, i would say that mid december to end of january are not the best times to be looking for trade work.

     

    cheers

    Hi there Kevin,

     

    I am a Decorative Painter - 10yrs exp.. We got a CO 2 Feb - hoping for a visa grant soon!

    Hoping to be over by latest Sept..

     

    Do you need flat (basecoat) painters only or do you have the need for specialist stuff too? We do a huge range of specialist things as well as

    Hand Painted Kitchens, Furniture make-overs, Cement/Plaster Stencils, Stripes, Colourwashes etc etc..

     

    Will keep your number handy and perhaps get in contact once we are there!

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    Take care,

    Karina

    Hi, Yes its just house painting that i do, nearly all new houses too. I have had enquiries from people that can paint but i do need fast and experienced house painters, its a very fast paced and tight priced area.

     

    Not sure how much, or if any, decorative painting work there is around, i used to do some of this work too in england but since being here have not been asked to do any. i personally try to keep away from domestic repaints too as i just can't make it pay.

     

    good luck with the visa.

    Hi Kevin,

    thanks for this post.

    We have a friend who's been here for the past 3 years. He has a contract until the end of July but will be looking for work after that. Will you still need people by then?

     

    thanks.

     

    Tamara

     

    Hi Tamara,

     

    all i can say is get him to give us a ring nearer the time, i am getting told by builders it is slowing down but should be picking up again, if thats the case i will have work but i am reluctant to take anyone else on until i see the work pilling up again.

     

    cheers

    Hi Daz,

     

    please do send me your details nearer to you arriving, say a month before and i can tell you the work situation, right a this minute all the signs are that it is slow for work, but i keep getting told it's going to pick up, so not sure how long this slow period will last, i do have plenty of work for the guys i have now but not enough right now to take anyone else on, But things change very quickly in the building trade.

     

    good luck
