      Hi and welcome to the forum.
      The first step would be to see if either of you qulaify for a visa. Does your hubby have all the paperowrk to back up his qualification as this would be needed for a skills assesment?

      If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...
      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 cal, thanks for the reply,
      he does qualify and he also has the paperwork, we just have no idea as to where would be best place for his profession, I have level 3 in childcare and also qualifications in care, so I have a couple of options open to me

      I think its much of a muchness for this trade TBH. I would start to apply for the visa as the PR can take months and months, then when you have your head around all the paperwork and your playing the waiting game have a look at different States, housing costs, weather etc. Also keep an eye on job sites like seek and careerone but remember lots of smaller companys advertise locally as its cheaper so local paper on line and even Gumtree will give you an idea whats about out here.
