  7. HI, We are looking at moving back to the UK, and would like to get back into the market as soon as possible when we get back. But we are worried about problems with getting a mortgage after being out country 4 years and not having any UK wage slips etc.... straight away! Is there a time limit before we can apply? And has any one else had a similar experience to us? We would also have 20% deposit to put in to the property. Thanks Sarah

    Tax numbers, Financial Issues

    HI Boab88, Me and my partner was in the same place as you i was born here and when a arrived i could not get my tax file number on line because the system said i should already have one. So i had to go into the local office in brisbane and do a paper app which takes around 28 days to come back , so if you want to work think about doing this first. We applied for a spouse visa once here and it sailed threw in about 12 weeks with no dramas at all. All the best on returning to Australia i must say it was the best thing we ever did and we love the life style we have here . Kind Regards Phil


    hi lee, we pay are 4th year app $28 an hour i hope that helps and like most place's in the world as long as you can lay bricks they will not ask to see any papers onsite. Unless you want to set up on your own hope that helps and best off luck.

    Bricklayers needed Brisbane North Side

    Hi Hannash, We are paying are brickies $32 an hour at the minute but things are slow and they are only getting 24-30 hours a week . We are only 5 minutes from north lakes and i am sure you will love it there. You will need to get an abn straight away and then look at converting you papers to australian papers , then go on a 1 day management course its not to bad to do if you but your mind to it. Kind Regards Phil Moss
  13. Hi All, In the last 2 weeks 2 bricklayers have moved from brisbane to melbourne to chase work and have found it , thinking off doing the same myself with the crew we have and was wondering if anyone knows what the situation is for bricklayers down there . Things seem to be getting slower in brisbane and we are now down to 3 days a week with the odd week off (like next week ). Any feed back would be good to know . Kind Regards Phil Moss
