Skilled carpenter/joiner looking for possible sponsorship

    Recommended Posts

    My husband is a qualified joiner with 10 years of running his own Propery Development & Renovatiob business; specialising in residential/commercial/hospitality premises.

     

    We can come over on a skills visa as a family (myself, husband & small child) but have been told it will be quicker and more secure if he could gain sponsorship through a company.

     

    Does anyone know of any reputable construction companies looking to take on someone full time, who would be able to provide sponsorship in Adelaide?

     

    Thanks

    I'd be inclined to avoid going the sponsorship route just because it may be quicker. There are downsides to sponsorship and if you could I'd try to secure an independant PR visa from the off.

     

    Perhaps a good thing to do would be to run your case past a reputable migration agent to see who is better placed as the visa applicant if you are both eligible. If its just one of you, look then at what visa route would be the best in the longer term, not just as a quick fix to get you out here.

    Yeah. Employer sponsorship isn't easy, and certainly isn't more secure in most cases.

    Also, it can be hard to find a trades company who can easily sponsor as so many of them have their staff as casual employees.

    If you can go for an independent visa then do it.
