    Are there many carpentry jobs?

    Hello, we are in Adelaide and have been here for nearly 3 years. Hubby is a carpenter and hasn't had continuous work since we have been here. We have wanted to move to the GC area for a long time, but hubby's concerns are that will he get work. When you speak to people in Adelaide and I say that hubby is a carpenter, they often are suprised that he has found it hard going. On a certain adelaide website, if anyone posts asking about carpentry jobs, people say yes you will have no trouble, the only problem being is that they see the building sites and automatically think that there is loads of work, which is not the case. So if anyone is in the real know, could they please advise me of the work situation around the GC area. Many thanks. J

I do have a few contacts in Australia and yes things are a little slow. Myself and my Australian Fiance are looking to moving to Oz. Most of her family are in QLD. Some are around Melbourne. We are waiting to hear the result of our 309 spouse visa application.

I have lived there before on a work holiday visa, and loved the place so much. but as i was on a working hoilday visa i only did casual work. We are prepared to go where ever there is work. Many thanks in advance Nev. :smile:
  10. Hi all, can anyone recommend a training centre in the UK for an AQF level 3 Carpentry / Joinery qualification please? Also any ideas on how much this will cost? Unfortunately the OH has no formal qualifications, although been in the trade for at least 10 years & is more than capeable!!! Been told we have to go via TRA due to our circumstances!! Seems very unfair seeing Vetasses don't require a formal qualification! It's soo frustrating!!!:arghh: Thanks.

    carpentry practical hip roof

    When building the hip roof on the carpentry practical is the ridge already set for you and you have to install the common rafters ,hips and jacks or do they just give you the pitch of the roof and you have to do all the calculations yourself from scratch? Thanks in advance. Mark

    Hi first of all I would like to say well done to all the people who have already taken this test and good luck to all who haven't. Basically just want bit of advice really. My husband is due to take the test tomorrow at Accrington and wondered if anyone can tell me what the day consists of. He has been polishing up on roofs as this is what seems to be worrying most people including my oh. He is very nervouse at the moment. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  21. Yes I cant believe it I have booked my husbands carpentry pratical, its booked for Tuesday 28th Oct in London, I emailed vetessess after I had paid for the pratical and asked them if my husband was on the Oct pratical they email back saying I could book on line, so I did, the hotels booked, trains booked, I just need to get my husband ready! he so up and down as he feels all the pressure is on him(well it is) so I am being very carm and nice, giving him lots of time at weekends to work on his roof. He has some questions if anyone could help? 1/what size is the roof the wish you to work on? 2/ how much time do they give you? 3/ how long is the day? i.e. 8am to 8pm? just an idea. Is anyone eles on the same pratical? Well we just have to see what happens :spinny:. Marie
