  1. Hi Anyone else out there heading to NSW and planning on being self-employed/sole trader? I have work lined up contracting (i hope) to a friend in Sydney installing kitchens but i've recently discovered that i need to obtain a contractors licence before i can undertake any work in private homes. I've spoken to dept. of fair trading and they said it would be upto the assesing people at TAFE to decide if my supporting documents i.e. stuff i submitted to the TRA , are sufficient to gain a licence. Another bloody hurdle! So i was wondering if any one else has used their TRA docs to gain a licence and were you successful ? Cheers Paul

    NSW or Perth?

    Hello to you all I am married with 3 children, we live in East Sussex at the moment and are really unsure of where in Australia to emigrate to!!!!!!:wacko: Obviously my OH's job will dictate our final decision (he is a CNC metal machinist - MODL). We are trying to figure out where he will be most likely to find work easily. This is beginning to stress us out a bit as when we look on employment sites there never seems to be many specific jobs! :unsure: We have been researching all locations and think either Sydney (NSW) or Perth look most suitable to us as a family. We have never been to Australia before either, so most of our research/info is from sites like this and what our friends have said!!!! Anyway, thanks for letting me ramble!!! Lynne Agent app: 7th August 2007 TRA lodged: 7th September 2007 TRA back: 5th October 2007 Visa Lodged: Medicals: Early January 2008 Police Checks: Early January 2008 IF ALL GOES WELL, PLAN TO BE THERE EARLY SEPTEMBER 2008!!!!!!!!

    Destination NSW - Hunter Area

    Hi Guys, Firstly many thanks for everyone's posts. They have been great to read and a good source of info. As you guessed we are new on the site, but been browsing for a while. We just started filling out skills assessment for ANMC as we are nurse/midwife and they should go off soon. Anyone know of anyone in the Hunter area?....or plan to go there?....My brothers in-laws live in Forster and they rave about it, but it would be good to get a few different views on the area, particlularly Newcastle / Maitland / Forster-Tuncurry. We go in Jan 2008 for our reccie trip. Cheers Nige
