  2. Hi Hubby has a job on Sunshine coast as Sous chef, not sure what the salary is round here?? Has been on $18.80 an hour, casual, but been offered $44,000 per annum + 4 weeks hols, permanent (works out the same on a 45 hour week, so not really a pay rise!!). Just more security I spose & a regular wage. Sounds a bit low for sous chef or is that a normal QLD wage?? Any USEFUL advice would be great thanks. Caroline :skeptical:

    Chef - is it still on the list?

    My husbands cousin is a qualified chef. She is also a landlady in the UK. Could someone point us in the right direction as to how she could get a visa if its still on the list? Would it just be certificates or is it an assessment? Thankyou xxxxxx

    skill assesment for chef

    Hi could anyone offer me any advise. My parner is a executive sous chef, he was worked as a chef for over 10 years starting at the bottom working his way up the ladder and has worked hard to get to the position he is in. He has refrances from all his employers that he has worked for over the years, giving dates and positions. We are currently in australia and he is a dependant on my temperary visa. my visa is valid for 4 years. we carnt apply for pr on my qualifications as my job is not on the list of occupations anymore. We would like to apply for pr on his qualifications. as his occupation is in demand. The problem is that he has no formal training certifacates as all his traing was on the job. and on the skill assesment form it is asking for formal training certifacates. on one visa web site it says to prove 9 years work experiance. please if any body can advise i would be grateful thanks
  5. One of our lads is up the mines at Murin Murin; he is after recruiting a Sous Chef whatever one of them is?.................and also a Gardener. Sous chef would start at around $70,000 per annum 2 weeks on 1 week off fly in fly out. Gardener starts at $54,000 or thereabouts per annum; also does a 2 week on 1 week off roster. All flights, food and accommodation are all paid for so it's a chance to save some money despite the wages not being too flash............. but at least it's a start and a chance to get a foot in the door. My lad went up there just over a year ago as a labourer. His duties entailed driving the dustbin truck, driving the bus to and from the airport, slopping out in the kitchen, cleaning toilets etc. Apparently they picked up on the potential he showed and he is now a manager running the catering/accommodation side of things. If there are any takers for either position PM me your details and I will forward them on to him. He does the inductions every fortnight. Johnno

  7. Hi, we applied for our 175 visa in January, and have now heard that they are not even going to look at it untill at least july 2010. we are devasted that it is going to take so long, so we are now looking to go down the sponsorship route. My husband is an executive chef here in the uk. He has worked in all types of restaurants. from 3 michelin stars to brasseries and country house hotels, here in the uk, south africa, dubai and melbourne australia during the last 17 years. Our problem is that every job that we see online states that you have to have your visa in situ already. Does anyone know where we can find jobs that are willing to sponsor. Any advice or help will be fantastic thanks so much karen and alan
  8. Hi. We are hoping to be in Australia by the end of May and are planning to start our new life somewhere between Newcastle / Hunter Valley and Coffs Harbour. Can anyone please tel me what the current situation is for Chef jobs in the present economic climate. I would welcome any views about other areas of Oz too because we will probably end up going where the work is. Just how scary is this whole emigration thing!!!!
  9. Ranks of skilled jobless swell, but not all sectors. The top 10 occupations where skills shortages persist are: Chefs, Metal tradespeople, Hairdressers, Health professionals, Food professionals, Science professionals, Computing professionals, Wood trades. Among the professional sectors affected by the downturn are accountants auditors, marketing and advertising, and construction. However, skills shortages will be with us yet again....

I have been 'cheffing' on and off for 10 years now, most recently a hotel head chef for 8 months, but i dont have any qualifications (except health and hygeine certificate, lol) Does this mean i can check the box that says 'Chef' on the visa thingy or not, as i have nothing to prove i'm qualified to do the job? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    TRA: references for a Chef

    Hey, I am right at the start of the visa process and working on my application to the TRA for skill assessment as a chef. I am currently trying to put together statements of service to send to my previous employers to get them to print out on headed and paper and sign off. However, I am struggling with the layout and what exactly needs to be included. Writing letters has never been a strong point!! Does anyone have a 'skeleton' outline of employer reference letters to help me put together mine, I am really struggling with it and this is only the first step! Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Dan

    from 457 to pr as chef

    Hi everybody, I have been reading the forum for a while and today i decide to write my visa's story and to ask for information. Sorry if my english language is not great but it's not my mother 's tongue. Long story short (or short story long) : I have been in aus for 3 years with (3) 457 and 3 employers. the first visa was one year contract, then i looked for a new sponsor and found one(onshore) and got my second visa after 3 months of wait because they supected i had the tb:arghh: . I could finally worked for this second employer until it goes ...Bankrupt:arghh:. i was in Australia with no job nomore income and not allowed to work and no return ticket ! after a couple week in this situation i found a new job and a sponsor. and here i am. the work is great and i have been working for him for ten month now and i wish i will stay with him for a while. Of course and as all of us i would like now to apply for pr under a skilled visa. I don't want to ask my boss to sponsor me for pr, he is not naîve, he knows i won't stay forever with him. Btw i'm chef, i'm 38, i've got my chef qualification, 9 years as a chef but no apprenticeship and i have been waiting months and months the come back of the pahtways D. I suppose ( i hope) the new system will work for me after an unsuccesfull tra application where they have recognised my qualification but not my apprenticeship. If not i will have to undertake a work place assesment. As my English Language is basic , its very difficult for me to write my job's task and all the stuff tra needs. Does anybody has a template for a chef application i could follow ? Thank you !

    Chef's

    Just a quicky, Would any one know what employment chances are like for Chef's in brisbane. As I said , just a quicky Chris
  22. Hi everyone! After spending a wonderful 11 months in Oz on our WHVs, me and the missus have decided we would love to go back permanently, and we're just starting to explore our options. Unfortunately it's all a bit wood-for-the-trees at the minute. I work as a chef, but have no formal qualifications, and have only been doing so for the last 4 years, previously as a civil servant in a non descript role. Shaky ground for a TRA application? Jools' sister is a premanent resident in Brisbane, and she should be a full citizen in the coming weeks. Would this be sufficient for an application on its own? I am considering sitting a work based NVQ in the coming months, probably NVQ2 as it would be possible to sit it all at my work (don't fancy spending one of my few days off learning things I already know!). Am I right in thinking this would be sufficient to pass my TRA? These are my main queries at the moment, but there's a million others keeping me awake at night! Thanks to anyone who can throw some light on this. Matt and Jools
