    laboring jobs

    The West Australian newspaper is the best place to look on Wednesdays and Saturdays, you will need your ABN number to start, not sure if you can get that while your still in UK. Depends on your trade, but mining is very difficult to get into despite what you probably hear.
  2. Well we'll be there end of May/beginning of June so meeting for a glass of wine sounds good!
  3. I met my fiancee travelling in Oz in 2009/2010 as well!! always wanted to go back and now we are with a fmaily haha yes I'm on facebook, Its good to know there are people in similar situations :-)
  4. Hi Im a 25 yr old mom to 9 month old lily, moving to perth end of may, excited but getting nervous now about leaving everyone especially my mom :-( did everyone else feel this guilty about taking their children away from grandparents etc?. By OH is a bricklayer but is also hoping to work in the mines, so I too could be in the situation where I'm on my own while he's away. Is it easy to join baby groups etc, what kind of things are available, just to put my mind at rest :-) Kirsty

    Hi We are in exactly the same position we have lodged our visa and awaiting a CO but our baby is due 3 July. At what point did you mention the baby, when you got a CO? How long did it take for you to get a CO after lodging? Thanks

    Applying For 176 Visa when pregnant

    Just seeing if anyone else has been in the same situation.. we are applying for a 176 sponsored visa and obviously want to get our application in before 1 July, however my baby is due 3 July and not sure how this will affect us, as we don't want to have to pay all over again for another visa for the baby. My partner is the main applicant. Thanks

    WA SS Applied for

    Hi As a starting point you first need to get your partner's skills assessed, which I think is Vetassess for a plasterer. For this you will need to show evidence of his skills i.e qualifications, work experience, references. for the first stage which is a paper assessment, if you pass that stage you will then be asked to attend a practical assessment, and if you pass that wou will have an australian qualification in plastering which you will need to apply for state sponsorship. I really don't think you need to spend money on an agent, we did it ourselves, it may mean a little more research yourself but it's worth it to save a few grand and there isn't many questions you can't find answers to on places like here! Best of luck
