  1. I am a part qualified Accountant (ACCA). I don't know wether to finish my qualification which could take some time and apply for a skilled visa, or to try and find a job with a sponsor and go to Oz on a 457 Visa. Any clues on how best to source jobs offers from a sponsor for a part qualified accountant in the Melbourne area? We are planning to go to Oz in December so I wondered if I should register at some agencies while I am there. Has anybody done this and if so how successful were you? Any ideas gratefully accepted. Jo:mask:
  2. Hi I am about to finish my Accounting Degree this end of june. I am goin on my last term starting this March at one of the most reputable universities in Melbourne. I just wanted to ask if accountants would still be part of the new list? Can anyone give a response please? I have already checked skill australia's report regarding the manpower skills that Australia will need in the future. I have just read paper one and it seems that accountants will still be in demand. Unfortunately the preliminary finding I have read was dated oct 2009. Can anyone please give me an indication if accountants will still be in demand? I do not want my studies to go to waste? Thanks heaps. j
  3. Would anyone be able to inform me if there is any indication that accountants will still be part of the new SOL? thanks jm

We are a young couple it's just the two of us and are planning to bring £10,000 with us! My partner is a gasfitter and him getting a job is the most important thing! Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

  6. Hi guys Some of you may have read my first thread about our validation trip - we are now back in the UK and we had a great time in Perth and are planning the big move for next year! We did lots more investigating around Perth and the surrounding suburbs - we also went to Mandurah which is lovely! We particulalry liked the new parts of Quinns Rocks, Butler, Jindalee and Carramar! We also registered our 11 year old twins on the waiting lists of 3 private schools (the primary schools are all good but a lot of people opt for private high schools as some of the state ones are not that good) the cost is not as bad as in the UK it ranges between $2,500 - $5,000 per annum per child). The waiting lists are quite long and you can actually register from the UK if you know where you want to settle - I am keeping in contact with the schools from UK and e-mailing school reports, birth certificates etc. As we have a permanent residency visa we are eligible for Medicare as soon as we arrive - I also enquired about private health insurance with HBF and as I have a pre-existing health condition - Rheumatoid arthritis - the private health insurance would not cover that condition for the first 12 months which could be quite expensive however if you have private health insurance of any sort in the UK it could be transferred to OZ to avoid the 12 month waiting period if the policy is acceptable - I am making enquiries regarding that at the moment! I must say that after meeting a lot of people some australian and some british and visiting them in their homes I cannot say that we saw any "bad" areas - we actually really liked Butler and the houses are lovely and soooo big! I think our furniture will look tiny in their houses! There is new property being built all the time and plots of land for sale - a lot of people seem to buy land and build their homes and after going around the show houses I must say they are really amazing - you can build a house for as little as $200,000 - it is the cost of the land that varies significantly depending upon the location - the nearer to the sea the more expensive! The cars also seem to hold their value a lot better in OZ as well! King's Park is amazing and a must to visit - the views of Perth are stunning! You can also attend open air concerts there and big bands play there ! All in all our trip was very worthwhile and has reinforced our view that a life in Perth is for us as a family! Good luck to all those waiting!

    Perth - Part Time

    Hi My wife Lisa has been selling cosmetics a skincare products part time and has enjoyed it. She sets her own hours and also gets to meet people and make friends. It has helped her a lot getting out and meeting other ladies. The extra cash has helped get us through since I was made redundant. It`s a good opportunity for the stay at home or single mum as well as a second income. It is possible to earn up to $1800 or more a month in as little as 6 hours a week. If you would like more information you may contact Lisa on 0409 66 0026 or send us a message with your contact details. Cheers Lisa & Robert
  9. I thought id share our experiences to date after leaving the UK back in February. I will have to put it in parts so what this space for updates!! Our adventure started early February as my parents and brother took the OH, myself and our 4 kids (15, 8, 6 & 20 months) to the Premier Inn, Heathrow Airport. It was very traumatic saying goodbye to them the night before we were due to fly out. The hotel was really nice - we booked two rooms (me and the girls had one, the OH and the boys the other) at it was about £70 incl. breakfast if I recall correctly. Our flight with Singapore Airlines was the next day, at 11am. We booked a wake up call for 5am and skipped breakfast and got the shuttle bus direct from the Hotel to the Airport which took about 10 mins. It was a bit of a comedy sketch with us carrying 8 suitcases and 6 pieces of hand luggage and a buggy to and from the shuttle bus but one passenger commented on our "military precision". lol. After arriving at Heathrow and grabbing 3 trollies we finally made it to the Singapore Airlines desk and checked in relatively quickly. We were a little concerned about excess baggage but the check in lady didnt bat an eyelid as the scales groaned under the weight of our luggage. Pleased with saving a fair few quid we quickly proceeded through to passport control and after emptying our bags of liquids into transparent bags (i should have been more organised) we passed through the the departure area. The place was absolutely heaving and we decided to grab a snack and a coffee. No sooner had we plonked our bums and bags down to relax for a second, the screens said our plane was boarding. After scalding my tongue with cafe latte, running in an outlet to get some plug adaptors, we gathered our bags and the kids and proceeding to the gate. The plane was already boarding so I practically threw the babies buggy at the attendant and tucked the little one under by arm along with two sports bags attractively strapped across my shoulders. What first struck me was how friendly the flight attendants were. Upon locating our seats (the kind check in lady had given me and little one the bulk head seats - loads more leg room, the oh and kids behind) our flight attendant made herself known and said if there was anything I needed for the little one to let her know. I had paid for a seat for the little one because I didnt like the thought of having her on my lap for 24 hours but she had to sit on my lap for take off. So there we were - leaving good ole blighty behind in 4 inch's of snow. Practically as soon as we took off, the attendant promptly fitted a bassinette to the bulk head wall (something I hadnt ordered as she had a seat and had thought she would be too big for) but was handy for dumping pillows, blankets etc they had given us, plus the little ones changing bag. The aircraft was one of the new big ones and the kids and the OH enjoyed having their personal screens which kept them occupied. The couple next to me had a 4 month old baby and it was quite comical when we came to put the little ones down for a nap (my little one swamped her basinette but she slept like a log). The attendants are continually feeding and watering us and I had no complaints about the food at all. We had a stop over at Singapore but didnt actually get to see much of it as we had a connecting flight within about 2 1/2 hours. Again the second flight was good, a slightly smaller plane, unfortunately no extra leg room or bassinette this time, but we all pretty much slept most of the light anyway. The food was good too although we didnt really eat that much purely cos we were so knackered. We finally landed in Brisbane International at about 7.30pm local time and I cannot fault the service we were given at the other end but the Airport staff. It was almost as if they felt sorry for us with 4 tired kids as we proceeded to passport control armed with our declaration slips. Again I was doning two sports bags and bubba under my arm, OH another couple of bags as well as a lap top bag and the kids their own ruck sacks. We joint an enormous queue but were approached by an official who ushered us to the empty Cabin Crew passport control desk where we were dealt with straight away. He then directed us to baggage reclaim and after collected our million and one suitcases another official checked our declaration forms and walked us straight past baggage checks and out into the arrivals hall. It was absolutely amazing. 5 stars to Brisbane Airport Staff - you made the end of our long journey effortless!!! We had booked a Kia Carnival from a local car hire company (just over AUD $1,000 for three weeks) and called their freephone number and were greeted by them within minutes. They then shuttled us to their depot about 5 minutes away and we collected our car. The OH's employer was there to meet us which was lovely, and although we obviously didnt look our best after a 24 hour flight, helped us load the bags and kids into the car. We followed him to our prebooked temporary accommodation approx. 40 minutes away from the airport and handed us 4 shopping bags full of groceries which his wife had kindly got for us. After a cup of tea and a chat with him he left us to take in the fact that we were now officially in Australia and were starting to live our dream. The story continues...... part 2 to come!!!

  10. Part Leather green 3 piece for sale, it is in good condition with some wear and tear. Will sell for $400,00 which includes a cleaning kit not used and a coffee table if wanted. We are in Clarkson Perth.
  11. I'm currently having an "oh my god am I doing the right thing" kind of day! It started off yesterday when my eldest was ill and of course it is Grandma that is looking after her while I'm at work - obviously I won't have that support in Oz. Then this morning I had an argument with dh and I don't know why but it made me realise how lonely things might be once we make the move. I just wondered if these little moments and questioning your own decision was normal in the long and emotional journey? Claire
  12. I will be moving to Perth on a 457, hubs is the main applicant. Is there a min number of hours that I will have to work or is can I work as much or as little as I want? Pls tell me I can work reduced hours LOL x Thanks Emma X
  13. Hello all Don't know if I am supposed to put this in a different part of the PIO thingy - never mind. My hubby stays at home and looks after our 22 month old son but we want him to go into HOME CHILDCARE, with a few other kids just for half or 1 day a week initially - so he can mix & interact with other littlies and have some fun. Anyone know anyone who is a register childcarer? We live in Arundel. lol Lesley:biggrin:X bump

    Passed Vetassess Paper Part

    :biggrin: Got email thru this morning, after all the hard work we have passed. So proud of my Oh
  15. Well im still searching the net for a lovely break / holiday for hubs and I and I am now considering hiring a boat? Does anyone know if you can do this and if so where from? Nothing too big, just big enough for two. Also we have no experience on boats at all so is there a course we could take that will allow us to rent boats - i suspect we need some kind of leicence? Or where can you book a boating holiday when you share with other and they supply the captain? Many thanks Emma x
  16. Assuming all the paperwork is correct how long does it take to get a pass from vetassess on paperwork. We are cutting it fine to get in for the practicals in July

The food on the plane was terrible...!!...and let's face it...when is it great...??...but what I wasn't prepared for was the lack of it...??...( possibly due to the fact that they take in account to the time it was to be at your ddestination..!!...) was pleased we took lots of snacks for the kids....and rule number one...if they offer wine...take it...!!...i said no to my last cup...an soooo wished I had taken it...!!...lol....

    Part 2 a long time gone

    Well I said I’d write a follow up to the first part of my tale, so here goes. It’s not the best of endings, but I figure maybe many of you have found yourself in this situation, experienced it and dealt with it. We are sure gonna try our best to sort it out. As I said we are very settled here now, gone are any feelings of homesickness or feeling sorry for myself. OK you get the odd moment when you think I wish I was back home to see that or do this, but that’s nothing to worry about. You even stop or at least greatly reduce comparing things to back home. When you first arrive, your brain is programmed like a bloody recording, “that’s not like back in Britain” “In Britain we do this, it’s much better” So in ordinary times our decision would be easy now, stay and kick on. Sadly it’s not that simple, as these are not ordinary or normal times. We have been renting here for the past year and the lease ends in July. Love the area, and the house even though rented has always fealt like home from the moment we walked in. We have nice neighbours and it’s a safe and friendly community. Our area Jindalee – Mount Ommaney is about 15-20K’s from Brissy and so convenient an area it’s really great, So no problems here, except for the dual carriageway the Western freeway heading to Brisbane each morning, it’s a nightmare, they call it a motorway but seriously it’s at best a 1980’s style dual carriageway. But you just get on with it. The problem is we still have our house at home in Wales, it’s empty in that no one is living there, but still half the furniture we left there, possessions and clothes. I’m still paying gas to keep the house heated, bits and pieces and local authority rates, insurance, water rates, and so on. Also whilst the house is still there, you never quite cut the cord, there’s always a feeling of unfinished business at home. Even a car there to sell. We can even tell of a few funny stories from home since we are here. How did I end up with the biggest Winter quarter gas bill since building my house 7 years ago, when the house is empty and the gas was set to come on for no more than 2 hours each day? Answer, my lovely old parents go down each week to check things and decided the house was feeling cold so switched the gas up high and left it on constant, for weeks. A massive gas bill. I was well chuffed with that. But what can you say their just trying to help!! So we have problems at home which must be sorted, we can’t go on like the present. Reluctantly we are going back in July to try and sell up everything and then return and settle for good. Our original plan was to put the house on the market around about now and let my father sell it for us and we would just return for a few weeks and sort out the packing of all the remaining things, when it had sold. That was last year before we left, and yes we knew things were getting tough at home but never thought it would be as deep and as long a situation as it is forecast to be. With the housing market on the floor and the economic outlook for the UK a real sorry sight at the moment, I think it could be a real long haul back in the UK, just as we had settled and come to terms with it all over here. Renting again here in Brisbane indefinetly at the rate we are paying is not an option, it’s just throwing money away, so I think being sensible, we will have to return and just grin and bear it and go flat out to sell up as quickly as we possibly can. I don’t think there is any choice here on this. I don’t trust the estate agents where we live and know they would give the key of our house out to anyone to view knowing it was empty, so sorry not having that. At present it’s a buyers market if there are any buyers, and offers are likely to be well down on the true value of the house. As I said, I built it with my Dad and it has great memories for my wife and I so we are not prepared to just sell it at any cost. I guess we are having to take a step or two backwards to go forwards. My biggest dilemma is with all the furniture and possessions we already have here in Oz, including our car. It seems crazy to ship it all back and then somewhere down the line have to ship it again to Australia. The problem is we don’t know how long it will take to sell the house, it may go in a month or it may still be there this time next year!!! I have plenty of experience in selling houses so I will give it a big effort when I get back to Britain so fingers crossed. Does anyone have any suggestions with regard to storage? I know the moving company we used (Crown) allow goods to be stored here for a period, and I think it’s about $150 per month, but I think that’s only on a definite shipping order, for goods arriving or due to depart . Storage in a secured unit may be an option, and there are plenty of firms in the Brisbane area who do that. But I don’t know what to say about the car. Selling it is tough at present as garages over here are begging for customers and almost giving everything away with a sale, so I fear we would take a big hit on the car. The garages here are packed with all sorts of motors for sale. I’m tending to lean towards storage here and taking the car to the UK, using a roll on roll off operator. I don’t think I could store the car here, because even if I stored it, a car has to be maintained periodically, electrics and engine I mean and just run to keep it mobile. It’s going to be hard to figure this one out for the best, it seems crazy to just ship it back to the UK and then have to ship it all back to Oz again, we will have enough to do with all the remaining things we have in the UK and the cost of that, I just can’t get my head around that crazy scenario. :arghh: But one things for sure, we fully intend coming back. We will guard against getting too comfortable back home and with creating to much of a feeling of familiarity, especially where my parents are concerned. That part will be tough, leaving them again, as their both mid seventies and I know they miss us so much. Still, at least when that time comes, they will know the way it all works a lot better than first time around. The webcam has been a real blessing infact a little device like that probably saved everything. Nevertheless, I still worry that sentimental feelings where my parents are concerned may change our thinking and cause us to change our mind and stay there. I think that would be a mistake. The thing is as much as we both love my parents, I have to think about my “Better Half” my wife and I am pretty certain She prefers it here. She is foreign, (not British) and even She says She finds the people here more friendly. Who knows it may all work out for the best because my wife has a 2 month Professional Make up course she wants to do in London, which She wants for her business in the future. So who knows. So that is it!! Another long post and the roller coaster looks set to continue. We have Permanent Visas and have until 2013 to settle here, so hopefully time will be on our side and we will be able to return and finally settle and make a great life here. It seems a disappointing outcome, but having racked my brains for weeks on this, I can not think of any alternative. We will just have to stay positive and work to achieve the result we want. Thanks Guy’s REDS :chatterbox:
  19. This thread was very popular last time round, and as there are loads of newbies every week on here, so thought we'd do it again. If you've lived or visited both countries please just give us a good, a bad and an ugly opinion for either Australia, the UK or PREFERABLY BOTH in your replies. Eg. UK : GOOD - amazing sense of history UK : BAD - price of petrol UK : UGLY - overflowing wheelie bins everywhere due to rubbish collection not being often enough! OZ : GOOD - fantastic beaches OZ : BAD - price of used cars OZ : UGLY - not enough public footpaths, you may have to push your baby in their pram, IN THE ROAD just to get to the local stores!

    Tinks & Crew (part 2)

    Something i forgot to mention that struck me as soon as we walked out of the airport was the hummidity - now unfortunately my hair is naturally poker straight (no GHD's required for me) but OMG within minutes even I had curls angelically framing my face!!! My OH is fortunately blessed with soft curly hair and its shoulder length (he still thinks he's a BMX Bandit at 40 - but thats another story....) Anyway theres me, admiring the scenery, even though its dark but I can imagine, and then I turned round to give him one of my excited smiles and OMG im standing next to Coco The Clown, if it hadnt been the humidity id have sworn he'd had a secret perm mid flight). Part 2 - Roads - having driven from the airport - the roads by the way are pretty much the same as the UK (signs, etc) so no surprises - Although no amber light from red to green - I realised this when I wondered why I was always the last to pull away so took the time to actually watch the lights intently and low and behold - no amber light before go!!!! The Furnished House - Our furnished accommodation (for one week) is located in Kingston (not a very nice area IMO) but its only for a week, its cheap, clean and has a pool and is a good base. The house is absolutely enormous, 5 bedrooms set out over two floors. Both floors have kitchen / living room / dining room facilties but we almost immediately decide to live upstairs rather than use both (less cleaning - plus i can keep tabs on the little one). We get another visitor on our first night - something that tests us and I personally believe was planted - an enormous cockroach, so big I can actually see his spiked boots and mountaineering gear, mounting the stairs. After running frantically away like a little girl (OH is runing behind me btw) we find some bug spray and drown the buggar. Feeling slightly shaken and wishing id popped in duty free at singapore to get a litre of vodka we settle everyone down to bed. JETLAG. Jetlag = Eating buttered crumpets & cornflakes at 3am in the morning. Flaking out on the sofas at 4pm in the afternoon and waking up at 2am with the kids asking can they go in the pool yet. It took us about 5 days to fully recover really. We found we really have to stay awake till at least 8pm but its o so tempting to crash out on the sofas but I warn you - DONT DO IT OR YOUR'LL PAY LATER!! We are now officially morning people - something we never were in the UK and are normally up at about 5am but the suns shining, the birds are squwarking (soooooo loud) so what the hell. My little one adapted surprisingly well too and settled back into a routine within days. Within days of arriving we signed the lease to our long term rental we managed to secure back in the UK - its in Heritage Park - about 10/15 mins from "basecamp". The OH's employer had kindly viewed properties for us while we were still in the UK (some of the agents were willing to accept this) and we had sent over our application along with references etc and had been accepted within days. We then bank transferred over the bond and 2 weeks rent the week before we left the UK and were able to take the keys and sign the lease 3 days after we arrived. The house is everything we dreamed of - its absolutely perfect - lots of space - in a quiet cul-de-sac (just like Neighbours)!!! Talking of neighbours - all really friendly - even lent us screwdrivers etc when putting together IKEA furniture (see part 3) and there were a couple of children the same ages as my boys so they were out playing within minutes. Ending now the for the time being.... part 3 to follow!!!
  21. Hi Weve been told our application would be high risk as my husband has 4 years experience before he gained his qualifications and 3 years after. Im wondering of anyone has (or knows anyone who has passed) in these circumstances? It doesnt seem fair if someone has for example 20 years in a trade and then gains the qualifications that they would they have to do a further 5 years to satisfy the TRA. Any help appreciated so we can decide whether the risk is too high. Thanks Michelle
  22. Hi guys i'm not sure if this is the right place to ask for this type of advice but ill try anyway.... I will be finishing my degree in Information Systems (hons) this year, however I am thinking of undertaking a masters degree part-time. Im only thinking of doing this because although I am 26 am I right in thinking that by doing the masters degree course and getting two years work experience would give me a better chance of getting a work visa? Hope someone can help me out....:unsure:
  23. Hi all, I'm hoping someone may have found themselves in a similar position and might be able to help me. I 'm 28 and ACCA part qualified, completed 8 of 14 exams and have 8 years of experience, I know Accountants is on the list of occupations in demand, but, im obviously not qualified. I would like to obtain a long term business sponsorship visa, the 457, does anyone think there is scope for that considering my position? I fully intend to continue my studies whilst in Australia and would be qualified by the end of 2010 and therefore be in a position to apply for a permanent visa. I would also consider a working holiday visa as I understand you can obtain business sponsorship whilst in the country and considering my position would I actually stand more of a chance this way than applying for a 457 visa in the UK? I hope I've made sense. Your advise is greatly appreciated.
