  1. Hi all We arrived in Perth 3 weeks ago and have been finding it very difficult to gain employment. I am a newly qualified chartered accountant (member of Irish institute) and my other half is a carpenter with over 10 years experience. I have registered with all the big agencies (and quite a few of the smaller ones too) but it seems to me that although they recognise my CA qualification my experience is not what they are looking for. I trained in a small practice in Northern Ireland where I gained a lot of experience in an all-round accounts position. However as I do not have SAP or MYOB experience this seems to be a big problem. I am a fast learner and am sure that with a little guidance I would pick this up no problem. With regards to the carpentry there just doesn't seem to be many jobs out there and any that are in the paper etc are snapped up at lightening speed! Just wondering if anyone could offer any help or advice if they have been in a similar situation or if you know of any work that may be suitable for us. We are staying near Joondalup but are willing to work anywhere north of the river or in Perth CBD. Thanks in advance, Sharon and Paul
  2. We are in a bit of a dilemma Both my wife and myself are very keen on migration from the UK to Australia, however we are really struggling with the visa minefield. The main issue seem to be around our qualifications. I am a Quantity Surveyor/Estimator, with 5 years’ experience, however I do not have a degree, only an HND (level 5 NVQ) in quantity surveying. I have worked in main contracting and specialist sub-contracting. Along with this I have over 10years operational management experience, again with limited qualifications. My wife is currently working as a Management Accountant for local government, with 6 years’ experience, however only has Accounting Technician Qualifications. We both have extensive and detailed CV’s. The problem we are finding is both our respective professions seem to require a minimum of degree level education with experience accounting for little or nothing. As yet we have not taken any professional advice, this would be our next step If there is anyone out there who has been in a similar position or has any advice, any info would be helpful. Please excuse our naivety as we are very new to the whole process
