    That is the thing with going to live in a different country. Unfortunately in some lines of work you need to get a work permit before you can get employment and you can't get a permit until you get there. Have a word with your agent and find out if this is the case for you.

    Something like a computer controlled cutting/drilling machine? I think.

    If memory serves, it is something to do with engineering, isn't it?

     

    I can't help with work opportunities, but I think Pete posted about permits and he is right. Have a look into the work requirements ie if you do need one for your job because for some it can take hours to get a permit, and others it can take weeks.

    Hi Grim,

    welcome to PIA, I'm an Engineer too who spent a while in Adelaide, the Industry is massive in the outer suburds, CNC Milling and Turning won't be too much of an issue though I think most of it will still be normal Tuning/Milling they are a touch behind, don't think work will be a problem to find but with kids i wouldn't risk going without verification of a job, I don't have nippers or any savings so I have to have employment on landing, I'm not too far through the process TRA step 1 is all but i have an 18 month projection time though reading about everyone else popping off already is making me GREEN

    hello and welcome to pia!

     

    i think pete meant you might need certification of your skills once in oz!

    many trades need that like electrician (my OH :confused:)

    you need to sit an exam and basically put in your TRA again, and something like h&s and cpr? - worth checking if you'll need something like that.

     

    for an electrician without that A-licence you can't work unsupervised so they don't take you on as easily or pay less...

     

    we've been told it's very hard to get a job before hand although there is lots out there.

    but understandably an employer wants to see you first ;)

    so we intend to send out lots of cv's once we actually have a date for our flights which we can tell the employers!!

     

    good luck!
