    Hi,we've been here now for 4 months. Husband has been looking for work since we arrived,found some casual work a few days a week but barely covers the rent. He has a restricted electrical licence so can work for an electrician. He has had to wait until July to start the course to get his A-class licence.does any one know of any positions going ?

    hi. the listing on the link was longer last night, and it was still there. I'm a sparkie too and have been here 6 months and still not working. while I didn't start applying for the first month or so due to stuff arriving and doing wiring course and not a lot being advertised around xmas..etc... I haven't had a sniff of anything yet, I can cross over into mechanical jobs and applied for trade assist in both, when they come up but still nothing,.. I think its a different job market to what it was this time last year.. I'm still waiting to get the results of my TRA.. to get a A licence.

    I think the closing date was today, it looks as though some of their vacancies close in the morning and some at the end of the day.

    A good app to look at also is AllJobs. Showing 13 local jobs under electrician on the search. 2 for trades assistants.

    got my thanks but no thanks email today!!! with the I am able to advise that there were a number of applicants who more closely matched the requirements of the Position Description..

    which is funny as I spent the last 11 years working at a British University as electrician, contracting, maintenance and filling in for their in house team. and one of my references is from their facilities manager.........perhaps I needed 12 years worth to get a interview?.

     

    oh well next.. :smile:

    Tricky I've said it before but as a helpfully sort I will say it again have you had anyone look at your resume and cover letter ? It is a big thing here and really has to be in the Aussie style with a cover letter. It should also be tweaked for every application to be more job specific.
