      There is a demand in oz because ehh theres not enough brickies for the ammount of work being done.same as every other trade on the list quite logical when you think about it
      prospects are probably better because its more than likely tradesmen doing the work in oz and not some jumped up labourer(no offence) or eastern european with no qualifications claiming to be a tradesman with a trowel as we have here in the uk

      logical yes i know, it but i cant prove it and it is for a court issue to allow me to take my son to Aus. I cant prove that there will be more work in Oz than here in UK.
      Or more sustainable work
      if any suggestions
      cheers

      If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

      Hi Sharon,

      This is not going to be of a great help as I cannot remember all the details!!!!!

      Last year a newspaer which is local to the Sunshine Coast ran a story about Bricklayers on the Sunshine Coast, QLD. Queensland is booming at the moment and was the only state last year to show growth. The story was about Bricklayers earning $1200.00 dollars a day and that they were so in demand that they had work to last them for ages. Bricklaying is in high demand and Colleges are now running courses open to International Students to learn Bricklaying for 2 years, which they then get a Trade certificate, so that they can apply for PR, as they then get the extra points for studying in Australia and work experience in Australia. If anyone is interested in learning a Trade in Australia that can lead to PR have a look at THIS IS AUSTRALIA

      Career One always has a listing of jobs for Bricklayers, the demand for Bricklayers does vary from State to State

      Personal message with me if you want to with your E-mail address or fax number and if anything comes up (im on the Gold Coast) I would be happy yo send you a copy of anything that comes up in the local paper or if I find anything else out.

      Hello there,

      This is a government site which gives some info on job demand for bricklaying etc.
      Australian Job Search - Careers - Job Outlook - Bricklayer

      If you need info on a specific location let me know.

      Cheers Andrew

      Hi Andrew thanks exactly what i was looking for, big help thanks again.
      Im thinking and hoping if i find on our local website that the job prospects are lower will have a better chance.
      We are hoping for the New South Wales area.
      thanks again

      Trades

      Hello all,

      There's a shortage of skilled tradespersons in Australia, brickies included that's why they're on the MODL.

      If you have qualifications and/or experience (6 years+ if no quals), then come on down we need you, lots of work.

      Regards,
      Mrs Kim Hunter
