    Regional Operations Manager

    Hi All, I have been involved in the Electricity and Gas utility industry for 17 years, at present I am a Regional Operations Manager looking after 80plus field staff, 7 Team Managers and 1 admin. I put alot of effort into trying to emigrate to Oz around 3 years ago but despite utility companies replying back to my emails, I could not find sponsorship. At this stage I was a Team Manager. My question is with my promotion to new position which I have been employed in for last 2 years, does anyone know of any companies which may be interested in sponsorship, or if I could apply straight for residency visa instead of looking for sponsorship? I have just come back from 3 weeks in Oz visiting Sydney, Gold Coast and loved it, so any help please would be great!! Thanks, The Desperates!!

    Not knowing

    I know how you feel, after months of searching I found a company who was interested in sponsoring me, they got in touch last Monday asking for more details e.g how quick I could move to Sydney etc but since my reply I have heard nothing, The wife says maybe they are enquiring to check whether they can sponsor me and if they have suitable position but I like you would just like to know where I am, for example has he recieved my mail, is he klooking into it or has he cahnged his mind, after months of nothing this has raised my hopes but now I'm just sat waiting!! And of course when I get past this stage I will have to got hrough the stage you are at, its driving me mad its all I can think about!!! Despearte in Crewe

    Maybe Success at last!!

    Congratulations Williamson's, hope all goes well for you!! That would do for me 3 months from now in Sydney!! You say your agent said permanent residency wouldnot be a problem? do you have a trade then or is it a case of once you have been with a company for 2 years you can apply for permanent residency as I was lead to believe? Keep in touch hope all goes well Shane and Ali

    Cheers Janette, any help gratefully received lol!! I'm heading for Sydney all being well, we were over in April and loved it we did prefer Gold Coast and Queensland, but sponsor in Sydney and I have family in Sydney as well, so looks like Sydney it is which we voth really liked as well and with having family there I think it will help us settle in easier! We can always drive to Queensland on hols etc But I would like to see all of OZ whilst living there the west coast Perth, outback the works cant wait I just hope the sponsor comes good!!! Shane

    Thanks all your probably right, its just one of them worries us Brits are famous for!! we worry about everything!! It has taken me so long to find a company interested in me and even thinking about sponsoring me, that now the time has come to start thinking about every little thing in more detail, but with help and support from people like yourselves I'm sure we would be fine!! I just would not want to come back after 4 years!!!

    Maybe Success at last!!

    Hi all, After much searching I have found a company in Australia that maybe able to sponsor me to come over on the temp business sponsorship 457, I was just wondering how easy it is to get permanent residency once you are over and working on this visa?? There would be myself, wife and dog coming over and it is a big gamble to leave our present jobs sell our dream home here in the Uk to move to Oz if we will have to come back with nothing in 4 years! Any help greatfully received Shane and Ali

    Still Looking For Sponsorship

    Hi Em & M, My family are looking around for us but we've had no look so far!! It's my aunt, uncle and 2 cousins out there, my cousin has just been over for a week and he says that himself and his dad are looking at setting up there own business and would look into sponsoring me that way. Did you find it easy enough to get sponsored by your hubby's uncle??and have you now got permanent visa? as I believe if you have been sponsored you can apply for perm visa after 2 years??

    Still Looking For Sponsorship

    Hi all, thanks for your help, I have spoken to quite afew migration agents who stated that my family couldnot sponsor us because they are in Sydney, don't know if this is correct?? just persume with being told it from several sources. I have tried seek sent my CV and wife's CV to loads of companies, some have offered me a position providing I can get a visa they will not sponsor which leaves me at square one!!! It's so frustrating!! been trying for over 12 months now to find a company that will sponsor, my wive's company has got offices in Australia and we have asked about a transfer with sponsorship but no joy there of yet!! My family love it over there the way of life, we were over in April for 4 weeks and loved it thats why were so desperate to go especially with the dark winter fast approaching!! If anyone has anymore ideas please contact me, I will keep pestering companies from Seek etc and fingers crossed that one day the dream will happen Thanks Shane and Ali
