We are just looking into re-locating to Adelaide and are looking to start the process of a Visa application 136.
My husband is currently an Electro-Mechanical Maintenance Engineer. He worked at BMW/Rover in Swindon for 16 years where he did his apprenticeship and studies. His role involved fixing/maintaining pretty much all the equipment used in a factory that produces panels for cars. We then moved 2 years ago to Devon and he now works for a company that is part of the Ginsters group maintaining all the equipment used to make pies!!
We started trying to look for a similar job on the SOL and MODL lists and sent a copy of his C.V. to the Engineering recognition board. They referred us to TRA. We looked at the list again and the nearest we can find to his role is 'Fitter' although it doesn't classify electro-mechanical.
He isn't sure therefore if this is the right job to apply for to the TRA.
Is it likely that it is just that they have a different title for the same role? Is this common?
I don't suppose there are any electro-mechanical engineers/fitters out there contemplating the move, or have made the move? If there are, we would love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading.
