Can anyone back this up and also recommend any? Is there anything else that will help get work other than the visa of course! Thanks :biggrin:
  11. hi i am newly married 10 months ago and living in kent, uk. nothing has really gone our way financially in uk and we are just getting by in life, carpentry work here is terrible and im just window cleaning as its more reliable then site work. we don't have much savings either but was thinking of coming over on a holiday working visa then applying for a permanent visa when i got some money from working in aus, what i want to no. is it good life in aus for familys? no children yet. is their still a lot of work in aus for carpenters? unlike uk. and does it pay well? what is cost of living compared to uk? i am really considering a move soon and appreciate any info and useful knowledge. many thanks craig :goofy:

    carpenter needing advice

    Hi all, i'm moving to Perth this November after recieving my state sponsorship as a carpenter. I've been looking at the price of power tools and general tools and nearly fainted at the cost of kitting myself out again with new gear... I'm now considering shipping my own hand and powertools over and was wondering if my electrical tools will work out on australian electric supply?? I've heard that its possible to get the plugs changed, then you need to get your converted tools checked and tagged but am unsure how true this is?? If anyone has done this is it expensive and cost effective after shipping etc?? or does it work out ruffly the same as buying new in oz? Also If i decide to ship/fly my tools does anyone know or reccomend a shipping or airfreight company I can use??? If anyone can help in anyway i'd really appreciate it as stuck as to what to do and need to get things organised before the move in november.. Thanks all :hug:

    power tools in Oz

    hi all i am looking for a little help. i am a carpenter seriously considering a move to Oz , have been told i can get a 175 visa so all seems gd so far. my question is about my power tools obviously being a chippie in the UK all my power tools are 110V are they any use in Oz or would i be better off selling them before i go ? do they use Paslodes out there or are they different. The last thing i want to do is pay to ship it all out only to find its no use, but on the other hand i don't want to sell it all to find i could have used them.
  20. Hi guys I am after a little help and advice. I was offered a sponsorship a few years back from a builder whilst in OZ but i turned it down to come to New Zealand, sadly things are just not working out over here and i am hoping to leave and hope go back to OZ if possible. I am from the UK which is where i qualified as a carpenter i gather i will i need to get my skills assessed? can anybody tell me who does this now is it still VETASSES or has it changed to TRA also as i dont live in the UK will i be able to get them assessed over here in NZ? Sorry to be a pain guys but any help on the matter would be appreciated.
  21. Hi hope someone can give some wise words or encouraging advice.... I have recently been granted my WA SSV and was planning activating my visa by going on hols this year, then finally making the move over to Perth around Jan 2013... I have had some debts to clear which has taken 2 years to do, and now have a small amount of savings in the bank.. I was looking at saving hard for the next year and a half to give me enough for a deposit and to sort my own tools, ute etc out... I've now been made redundant after 3 years, and have been earning very good money as carpenter in Central London.. The dilema now is do I go to Perth now and try to make a start on the minimum of savings? or struggle on here and try to save a lump sum as my original plan??... I have been looking already at Carpentry jobs over here, but they are only a fraction of what I have been earning... I would be able to afford a couple of months rent in Perth, and be able to kit myself out with tools, but after then I would need to find a income pretty quick, and would have to save for a deposit on a home in oz.... My hearts telling me to get up book a flight and get out there and give it a shot, I mean whats the worst that can happen?? I book a flight home and stick with original plan of saving here.... Just wondered if anyone has been in the same position or can offer any words of advice... Thanks......

    Carpenter Licence's required to work in Oz?

    Hi, I have been searching around and it looks like us Carpenters and I guess other trades, will have to apply and purchase licence's, which allow us to work on site and be recognised. I thought the who har of completing the Vetassess is to show we have recognised qualifications, so why do we have to go through it all again at great expense? :eek: Can anyone shed some light on this please?:confused:
