    My two brothers are both bricklayers and live in Adelaide (have done since 1970)and unfortunately have had to temporarily move to Perth to find work.(My brothers partner has a son in Perth who has his own building business).This is the first time they've ever had to do that!Sometimes when work has been short they have managed to find bits and bobs further afield in SA (country area's)but have never until this year had to go interstate for work.Sorry its not a positive post but I can only speak from talking to both my brothers.Alot of work in the building trade can be word of mouth,so even though the job sites advertise minimal jobs,it does'nt mean thats the only jobs out there in that state if you know what I mean.Good luck and stay flexible re work.You may have to find something first out of the building area,and go from there!

    Thanks for your reply state sponsorship is only open to Perth or Adelaide for bricklayers do you think Adelaide will be removed ? Is Perth the better option?

    Thanks for your reply if work is so tight why are bricklayers on the state sponsored list for Adelaide do you think they will be removed?

    Hi United,from my understanding and from reading posts on migration sites such as this,just because the jobs are on the list does'nt mean they're available if that makes sense.I've read a few posts over the years from people who have migrated (their skills are on the list)to find work in that area is quite thin on the ground,and lots of applicants going for the same job.Its not impossible,it just makes it harder.I wish I could be more positive for you.
