    Holiday let or alternative?

    Thanks for the reply JetBlast, we have had a look at Airbnb and you’re right there’s plenty of them around, are there any other options you can think of or suggest?

    Holiday let or alternative?

    Hi all, just a quick enquiry, what is everyone’s opinion as to the best option when first arriving in Oz? We are moving to the Newcastle area, early 2019 and looking at rentals but obviously securing a rental will take a few weeks once we arrive. Any advice on holiday let’s or alternatives? thanks in advance. David

    Thanks for the reply CaptainR, really hope he does as it will help him (and us )settle in ?
  5. Hi, moving over to the Newcastle area in early 2019, we have a footy mad 9 year old who is at a decent standard (academy) over here in the U.K. Are there many clubs or teams he can join up with once we are out there? thanks David

    190 NSW invitation waiting time

    We got our invitation within a week, (general mechanic) it's a lottery I'm guessing depending on trade and qualifications. Fingers crossed for you.

    Mechanic to Newcastle

    Thanks for the reply Cal, we are coming over on a state sponsored visa. We have done lots of research into jobs etc and it looks really promising, my wife is a fully qualified accountant and there seems to be plenty opportunities for her out in the Newcastle area. for myself because of the experience I have in regards to being able to work on anything from motorbikes/cars up to Heavy goods vehicles and plant equipment it opens up a lot of scope for me. Really can't wait to get over and get cracking now. thanks again David

    Mechanic to Newcastle

    Hi, thanks for the reply. totally understand the process, visa application is almost complete but as we aren't planning on making the move over until early next year I was just testing the water so to speak, maybe if anyone on here knew of any recruitment agencies locally or any larger employers that are useful to know of. Money isn't an issue so more than willing to start the job hunting once we arrive but if I had a bit of a head start with regards to contacts that would be a huge help. Looking into the local job market things look really promising so I'm not too concerned about my prospects. thanks
