New to the forum, just found it!! I was wondering if anyone on here could help me and the wife out? We went to Oz in April to see my Aunty, Uncle and cousins in Sydney and loved the place, we also ventured upto Brisbane and loved it. Before going I had sent my CV to a number of companies and actually met up with a couple one in Sydney and one in Gold Coast they both offered me work if I got my visa sorted, I spoke to my family over there and they said the visa would be easy enough to get as they knew of brickies mates who had got one and other non skilled workers.
Everyone we met in Oz asked when we were moving over which I found amazing from complete strangers in pubs, it's such a friendly country compared to uk.
Anyway I got back contacted numerous emmigration companies to arrange a visa and this is where I fell flat, my wife is a PA/Executive Secretary/Internal Auditor and I am a Manager looking after meter readers for E.ON one of the biggest energy companies in UK, but evey company we spoke to said that because neither of us had a degree we would not be eligible for a visa, when I asked what they degree should be in they said anything!! So I could go over as a office manager with a degree in art!!sounds daft to me!
Does anyone know of a way round this?I have been told company sponsorship would be one way but the companies I have sent my CV to are reluctant to sponsor saying it would be too difficult to do for a manager! Any help would be appreciated we are so desperate to start a new life in OZ.
Does anyone think that emmigratiopn rules may be lapsed in the future to allow more people in to Oz as when we were over there in April they were saying on the news that they will need more workers coming into the country in the next few years.
There must be away as all the foreign workers I saw over there particularly in Sydney can't all have degree's??
Thankyou all for any help in advance
