    railway work

    Hello My husband is a on track machinery technician. he has permanent residency status in Australia, Is there much work in Oz at the minute for his line of work? we have looked on seek etc but find it very hard to find his particular job as I think they call it by a different name over there. Thanks in advance julie

    Tra Cert Dilemma

    Hi all wondering if you can help!!! We were granted our 175 permanent residency visa last year? We used a migration agent during this process everything went smoothly...part of the process was to get my husband’s trade recognized (Tra) Anyway he applied for a job in oz this week and they asked us for his Tra Certificate??? We have never received any cert I just assumed this was all tied in with the visa approval, anyhow we contacted the migration agent to ask them to explain what has happened and they told us that the TRA cert is still with the TRA board in oz. :arghh: Has anyone had any similar experience? I am feeling hard done by the migration agent as I paid them a total of £3000 during the visa process and £1500 of this was for the TRA process..in which I technically do not have. thanks in advance Julie

    Plant mechanic/Fitter

    Hi We have our visas now, and yes we did a TRA. Do you have the Fitter Guide? it basically just tells you what they class as a fitter. There is a lot in the TRA they want every detail. our agent told us to explain everthing.

    Mechanic/fitter thinking of moving to oz...

    Hi again I am actually from Liverpool but gary is from Dublin which is where we live now. Gary was only in the mines a short while as he was on a working holiday visa at the time he said it was good while it lasted (money was good) but wouldent like to live there full time. I see you are looking at fifo, that would probebly be the best option in my opinion as your getting the best of both worlds also 2:1 work roster is very good. do you have any preferance as to where to would like to go? julie

    Mechanic/fitter thinking of moving to oz...

    Hi Ritchie My partner is a plant fitter and we are also from Ireland so just wanted to say hi. We have just been granted our 175 permanent visa and are looking to head over to OZ early next year. there seems to be a lot of jobs at the moment in fitting, gary has been offered a few positions (before our perm visa come through) but unlike yourself we are not willing to go into the mines so we are hoping to secure a job in one of the cities when we have sorted out our house. Gary worked in the mines when he was in OZ on a working holiday visa, money is good but its very isolated. anyhow good luck with your move

    I know the house strain is a pain, we have decided to rent ours out,garys working around the clock doing any maintenance and repairs so we won't have to worry about it when we are in oz. Cannot wait to go now I only emailed an agency in oz last night about a job and recieved an email back today telling us they would be interested go figure hopfully all will work out fine.

    I know the 3 year wait has been tough, I was quite worried after doing our meds they might go and change the processing again like they did in march 2009. Think we are planning to head for Sydney in jan but will go were the work is really. Our agent sent us a link for a job site you can go on when you visa is granted, it's only for migrants with visas to help you get work I don't know how it works yet as you need to wait 21 days after you get your grant to register with them but I think it could be really usfull as they know you may not be able to start job immediately. Where and when you do plan on heading too? Julie
