For those in Queensland you will be aware of the huge amount of flood damage. Not only has it affected residential properties it has also damaged infastructure.
This is often put out to tender. The Queensland Government has an etender website. You can view what tenders are coming up and who has been sucessful in obtaining the contract. If a company has been awarded a contract they have guaranteed work for a period of time. Contact these organisations. Local councils also have to put work out to tender as do all federal, state and local government.

As mentioned in previous posts we are not an immigration company - we are a consultancy helping businesses in Australia with their skills shortages by using a whole range of solutions.
