  1. Afternoon, My name is Nathaniel I'm 26 and just moved to the Gold Coast last week to be with my girlfriend who is an Australian native. Ive been an electrician back in England since i was 16 serving an apprenticeship then moved to being self employed then employed by a company for the last 3 and a half years. I have arrived on a working holiday visa and decided that I won't be leaving anytime soon and that it is best to start this process while i still have 12 months on my visa, I have the money to start the VETASSESS process and I'm presuming I will be having to apply for a skilled 189 working visa. I rang the licensing agency yesterday to see what would need to be done and they told me I'd need to complete the VETASSESS and then submit a form 11 work safe QLD. I have been on the phone to link migration in southport Gold Coast to see if they can help with the skilled working visa and they'd like $165p/hr for their help. I have also been on the phone to VETASSESS to start the process and they have told me that i have to prove that I have been employed and working as an electrician for the past 4 years, So i have emailed all my previous employers asking for my working contracts as proof of employment. I am totally new to this and will be jumping into it feet first on my own with just a laptop and eagerness to get it done, any help would be greatly appreciated as to how I'm going to go about it as i feel a bit lost with it at the minute. Once my previous employers have gotten back to me i will be starting the application process for VETASSESS and working my way forward from there, any help/information/websites/booklets/study books would be of great help and greatly appreciated, wish me luck! Cheers Nat
