Guest posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi all not been on here for awhile read posts often and they have been v informative and helpful. We went to an expo in leeds and OH was verbally offered job with liebherr. We went to london following week and he had an interview and was offered job with them in singleton area nsw..i have sister who lives in sydney so position was great. We now have formal offer from them and i cant make the income outgoings figures balance. They have told us that their fitters enjoy a good lifestyle with a good work life balance ! The hours are v family friendly i cant argue with that and with the benefits that come with PR ie lower tax lower medication fees and free schooling for our 3 kids it would be economically ok but we have got to survive at least 2 years on a 457 before they are willing to sponsor us should we at that point want to stay. Expected income is between 80-90k inc average overtime hours so have done all my sums on 85k pa, school fees are 15000 pa for public school 6000 for a christian school but we are not church goers and i would struggle to send them to one. outgoings as follows per month.. (some are estimates some are from posts on here/my sister or research i have done.) Rent 1600 (4 bed in rutherford area around 350pw) med ins 263 (inc dental ambulance optical) me meds 140 (im diabetic on an insulin pump) food 1000 elec 100 rego and ins 120 (for 2 cars) mobiles 60 broad band 100 tv 40 total pm 4223 per annum 50,676 fuel 800 plus school fees at 15,000pa=65,676 income at 85,000 minus tax of 25,480 and medicare levy = 58,245 leaves us minus 7431! Have i been too pesimistic with my figures? We really want to move to oz id go anywhere but being in same state as my sister was the icing on the cake.. cant see how we can go?! how do people do it?!? There is the possibility of a job in perth with them fifo so alot more money but OH worried about heat at mine sites and affect being away for 2 weeks at a time will have on our family. We dont really know much about perth either which doesnt help. Anyone else on here been offered work with or are working for liebherr?!? Thanks for reading any advice will be greatfully received..mrs henderson.:v_SPIN:
My partner and I are in the process of emigrating to Australia and qualify on points for a family skilled sponsored visa. Our aunt in Adelaide has agreed to act as the family sponsor but the problem we have is that she cannot act as the Assurer of Support as she only spends a proportion of the year in Oz and the rest in Singapore..We basically need any Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident who earns a minimum of $ 45,000 Dollars taxable income a year to put up a bond as Assurance of Support of $ 5,000 Dollars for 2 years. Does anyone know of anyone who may be willing to do this for us ? We are happy to give the bond from the beginning and then for it to be kept after the 2 year period..or alternatively go through an agency / law firm etc....We are feeling desperate as we are 100% committed to starting a new life in Oz and it is so close we can " Feel the Sunshine & Smell The Barbies !":cry:
