    Painter in Adelaide

    Hi i've just moved to Adelaide on a whv...I'm just wondering if there are any painters in the area that have work going...I'm a fully qualified painter, I've been doing some scouting around and most people want someone on a sub-contracting basis which is fine if nothing else comes along but if anyone has any work on time then it would be great!!...I'm currently in the southwest suburbs of Adelaide, cheers!! bren
  2. Hi Everybody, Just want to introduce myself. Ciara here, my husband and I (31 & 34) are hoping to move to Adelaide in 2012. We are just waiting on his skills assesment to come back to apply for our perm visa. He is an IT Manager and Adelaide seems to be where the jobs are for this type of work. I am currently completing my degree in Counselling and I am hoping to get some work using this degree over there. Does anybody know anything about practicing in OZ? Which are the best accreditation body? What level of ed do oyu need to work for EAPs etc. Any tips on visa application? I have been looking at some of the Adelaide threads and they look great. Any tips on where to look for accommadation etc.? Look forward to chatting to you all. Nervous and Excited Ciara:yes:

    what about Adelaide ?

    Awaiting visa and thinking of moving to Adelaide early part of 2006. Family of 5, myself ,wife , son 11yrs, daughters 9 + 8 yrs old. Getting visa on TRA as a car mechanic. Have been reading the notes on the web page and nobody seems to be talking about Adelaide(or am I looking in the wrong place or is it that bad!?) Has anybody got some good info on the areas, schools etc? Also is there a main Hyundia dealer within the area as this is the dealership I have been working for the last 5yrs? Hoping to hear from anybody that can help. Tony Ps Should we be looking somewhere else like maybe Perth???

    Adelaide here we come!

    Well today's the day!!! The past 10 days have been a whirlwind of goodbyes, packing, farewells, lunches, dinners, drinks, nerves, excitement, tears, laughter and fun and tonight we fly out to our new life together in Oz. We've been dreaming of this day for so long now that i still can't quite believe it's here! [raises a glass].... Adelaide here we come!
  5. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone could recommend a cheaply priced interstate removalist? We are looking to return to Brisbane from Adelaide ASAP. Thanks, Tanya:biggrin:
  6. Title says it all really. I have always been set on Melbourne when we emigrate and have done 2 x reccies and been very comfortable there. However, I know it sounds shallow but the summer they have endured has made me think twice as I can't wait to escape UK weather. I had always assumed that Adelaide was really too hot for us, but looking at the stats, it doesn't seem bad. Also, Adelaide has featured on WDU so much this series, and looked really nice, it's just got me wondering. Any thoughts please.
  7. We've just come back for a bit of a drive down through Adelaide and the esplenade / beachfront areas. Here are a few pics for you Jim. It's a public holiday so the beaches are packed............ errr. Looking north over from Kingston Park over Seacliff,Brighton and up to Glenelg. Henley Beach looking north. Henley Beach looking south.

    HMAS Adelaide scuttled

    Today the navy (or someone) blew up HMAS Adelaide to scuttle it. It was sunk off North Avoca Beach in NSW. Everyone seems to have been excited by this. I reckon this is just littering on a huge scale. Are our oceans now a dumping ground for old ships that we can't be bothered disposing of properly ?
  9. Hi all. Just signed up with the hope of finding some friendly people in and around Adelaide to get to know them and stuff over the internet to meet up when I'm over there... have some drinks, and do whatever you do over there! I'm staying in Glenelg for the first 6 months or so as I have a job around that area which is why I'm coming over in the first place! I'm 20, very friendly, down to earth, easy to get along with, love the outdoors and I'm a professional Arborist here in the UK. I play drums, piano and didgeridoo. Hope to speak to you soon, Harrison
  10. Can anyone recommed anyone for Short term rentals in Adelaide Fully furnished. It must be at least 3 bedrooms, 2 with double beds and another suitable for 2 kids. We are looking to rent from mid September. Thanks:biggrin:
  11. Just in need of some friendly and expert advice from any MH nurses in Adelaide. We look as if we are about to be granted our visas pretty soon. I am training to be a RMH, due to qualify 2013 and will look to move to Oz probably 2014 after gaining 12 months experience in the UK (pay wise is it best to do 12 months to gain extra experience in UK, or if we move to Oz will I have to do post grad?) I would like to know what the job situation is like in Adelaide for MH nursing, predominantly interested in acute adult wards. what the rate of pay can be expected to start on, and how it progresses, how does work on acute wards in Oz compare to that of the UK? Any links to check out in SA? Just need to see what the demand, pay, etc is like to gain big picture of work vs the UK as I know that jobs in MH aren't that easy to come by in the UK now. Thanks in advance for any advice M x :unsure:

    Adelaide to Melbourne

    Hi Has anyone made the move to Melbourne from Adelaide? If so why and was it what you expected? We feel we have more job opportunities in Melbourne but I read somewhere that parents tend to be pushy and not so laid back as Adelaide (more of a defined class system) is this true ? :idea:

    Perth or Adelaide

    We are currently going through the migration process and if my OH passes all the VETASSESS assessments then we will be state sponsored. Out of all the states accepting electricians only Perth and Adelaide appeal to us. I haven't been over there, but my OH lived there for a while and he liked Perth, but is worried about he heat, but he hasn't been to Adelaide, but the more we hear about it the nicer it seems and it looks like it has a nicer climate. But would I be able to get work as a Legal Secretary in Adelaide? What to do! Basically, we have to make a decision now as application needs to be in by July. Any recommendations?:frown:
  20. We hope to move to Adelaide May/June 2006 under the SIR visa (I am a teacher and my husband is a mechanical technician) and are waiting for our medicals next month. We haven't yet visited the area (taking a risk, I know!) and wondered if anyone can tell me of any "nice" areas to live in both the city and suburbs. Any information would be much appreciated! Thanks!
  21. Looking forward to our new home.. we see that the Adelaide Now website is asking for votes for the name of the new T20 franchise team for the city. The new competition from next year is going to have teams from cities not states. We are definitely going to be there at the matches.. erm visa permitting. Brisbane and Sydney have already chosen their names.. Vote for your choice of the best name at Big Bash branding | Adelaide Now Adelaide Now readers also chose the nickname for Adelaide Utd (The Reds). Choices are: Adelaide Fire Saints Fever Razors Angels Mavericks Strikers Sparks Slammers Chargers Rush Blitz Pulse Let's put some PIO input into the name of the team we'll all be supporting....:v_SPIN:

    IT Work in Adelaide??

    Hi. We are seriously considering the move to Oz, having discussed for years and years! Speaking to a migration consultant, because of hubbys age (39!), and the fact he doesn't have a degree, we wil have to go down the route of an RPL from the ACS, then get a 475 visa. Apparently, South Australia is our best bet, as it has IT Manager on its lisitings at the moment. However, my main concern is that I have seen lots of threads saying Adelaide is not an IT City. Although he's prepared to do anything, IT really is his area, and he'd like to stay in it if possible. I am a qualified bookkkeeper, but that doesn't seem to count for much on the visa front! We wouldn't really want to stay in Adelaide just to get a perminant visa, and then move on, as we have a young daughter and her schooling to consider in all this! Does anyone have views on Adelaide for IT people, and what the salaries are like? I can see its difficult getting work at present, (isn't it everywhere?), but we are probably talking 18-24 months before we get out anyway, so hope things may have picked up by then?! Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
