Any work required

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

    does anyone know of any jobs going. My hubby's qualified plumber in UK, but has found since being here that doesn't stand for anything...... He has his white card & restricted licence, but he's applying for anything now.... Skills are, plumbing & heating engineer, engineering, stores, driving, tiling....he can turn his hand to anything. We arrived here 9.1.12 & have been looking for work since then... I've managed to get the odd day cleaning, but it's the end of the season now so that's dried up. Hubby's applied for anything from delivery - mushroom picking, he'd willingly do anything....We really do need some work so would appreciate it if anyone could let me know.

    Hi Northy, welcome to PIA, There are lots of people like your hubby here, but dont let that put you off. It seems that a lot of luck and a different way of delivering CV's, that is the key here. I mean putting your face around and knocking on doors and shaking hands is the best way here, he will jump the email que by doing this. I myself am in a similar position as a sparky however I intended not to work till my licence was gained. I know plumbers have a lot harder time of it, but dont dispair it will happen, only today on the news another development in the city is going ahead creating another 200 jobs. Check out previous threads by rob & mel, Rob is a fantastic source of information for plumbers on this site. Good luck

    Northy,

     

    Rob here have you looked on the 3 mail job sites?

    http://www.seek.com.au/

    http://www.careerone.com.au/

    and

    http://www.jobseeker.com.au/

     

    Dont just put plumber play with the words like pipe, gas, drainage you get the idea.

     

    We will be going to Christies Beach on the first Sunday of the month so catch up there.

     

    You asked Pommyspark where was he but you never said where you are?

     

    We are in Aberfoyle Park if you want to catch up sooner?

     

    If so send me a PM with your number.

     

    Rob and Mel
