    Sweep it under the carpet!

    Not one comment on this very disturbing report, You people amaze me, I would kick s**t if this happened in Oz on this scale! Forty-six 'dangerous' terrorists go free from jail - Telegraph Forty-six 'dangerous' terrorists go free from jail At least 46 convicted terrorists who have been either released from prison or are close to being freed “pose a risk” to the public and face tight new controls on their freedom, a secret Government document discloses. :arghh:
  10. It seems we've fallen at the first hurdle. My husband and i have been looking into moving for a while now and have only just started seriously looking into Visa options, i did have my sister who was willing to sponsor us but now it seems the situation has changed and due to floor finishing being bumped down to the SOL Scheduele 4 list our only option would be the state sponsorship or employer sponsorship.........Does any one have any news how long we'll wait for SMP to be released and especially how difficult our dream of moving to Perth is going to be? Thanks Ryannan & Paul :cry::arghh:

    How to clean after you dog??

    Hey dog owners :biggrin: I don't know what you do to keep your house clean and have a dog at the same time and no bad smells, but I've always had problems with it untill I discovered a few helpful tips! Thought it's a good idea to share them with you and make your life a little bit easier :wink: We all know how much dogs like having a bath :nah: Well, they don't because dogs can smell the chemicals, and they can make their skin itch. So what I do is make my own natural dog shampoo! What you need: 1 cup of water 1 teaspoon liquid soap or soap gel (preferably castile soap) 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel ½ teaspoon olive oil Mix all the ingredients together and use like any other shampoo. Clean your dog's bed! If it has cushions - give them a good shaking or if they are washable - put them in the washing machine. To wash the basketwork: warm soapy water a soft bristly brush (could be a toothbrush) Mix some baking soda and water in a spray bottle and spray over the basket to remove the bad smell. If your dog makes a mess on the carpet it's important to clean it straight away. Otherwise, the smell will remain and the dog will think that it’s OK to do it again. Sometimes the smell doesn't go away thought so what I do in those cases is use professional carpet cleaners. Try using natural cleaning solutions!
  13. hi we are heading to mandurah in september, i have a AQF level 3 qualification and 15 years experience laying vinyl, laminates and carpets. Does anyone know how difficult it will be for me to find work? , as i will only have enough savings for around 3 months living without work? When i did my AQF Level 3 the training provider told me there is lots and lots of oppotunities, especially with the AQF qualification, but after emailing my resume to many companies in and around perth region, ive not heard anything back. Does anyone know if i may indeed struggle on the job front?, and what may be a good approach in finding work, any tips? regards, jason
  14. Ive been laying carpet for 10 years in the UK and on and off over the last 3 years in Oz.

I fit domestic carpet, vinyl planks and domestic vinyl. Im happy to team up with someone or work in a gang...I'm easy. Also happy to do private jobs, I have a van and tools etc just need work. Terry :huh:

  17. Hi All My husband runs his own carpet business in the UK, selling and fitting carpets, vinyl, wood and laminate flooring. He has lots of experience and is very good at his job. We are trying to find out more about getting sponsorship but not sure how to go about it. We are going to arrange a trip out to austrailia to start looking at areas, We are looking at perth, new south wales, gold coast, victoria, however we are still open to ideas and obviously when we go we may change our mind on areas. We need to find out more about Employment first for my husband, then schools for the children and also homes. Does anyone have any suggestions on employment in any these areas, we don't really know how to go about getting sponsored or is it a case of contacting as many carpet/flooring companies as possible. Any help appreciated Thanks
  18. Hi All I am so glad I found this forum. My husband, our children and I are looking in to moving to Austrailia. My Husband runs his own Carpet business supplying and fitted carpet and wooden floors. Is this a useful trade to have and is there demand for this? I am a travel agent and work from home I think there is a couple of homeworking companies who would recruit in austrailia but we are more concerned about my husbands job as he is the main breadwinner. We were initally looking at perth as I have a lot of family there, however melbourne also looks good, we are open to ideas as we are unsure where the best place would be and would be willing to go where the work is? Any help is appreciated with this Thanks x:biggrin:

    Tiler or carpet fitter?

    Hi everone, I only found this site yesterday but seem to have spent the last 24 hours reading through all the forums,with some real interesting reads. My situation is this.I'm a 40 year old guy from Llandudno in Wales,presently working is a cab driver in London.I married an Adelaide girl 2 years ago,and we're looking at moving to Oz in 2-3 years.We would go where the work is,but would prefer Melbourne as our first choice,and probably Adelaide second. I would like to learn a trade over here first before coming over,but which one? I had thought tiling,there is an intensive 8 week course near me which is recommended,and at the end of it the huge tiling firm which run it will give me a job.I would then work here for a couple of years to get experience and then come over with my wife.After reading the job forum on this site,i see that carpetfitters are in demand and can earn a good living.Do tilers earn as much? and are they in demand?because maybe trainto become a carpetfitter instead. Any advice would be greatly appreciated Ste
  20. Hi, This is my first post so hope i do everything right :v_SPIN: Ok, I am Arron, And i am a carpet fitter in the uk, i am 23 but tho i am at a young age i have been fitting since a boy with my dad, so have 7-10 years of experience (yeah other kids played out after school, i fitted carpets with my dad lol!). Anyway, i have worked at some of the most prestigious places, done the domestic side and the contract, and my work is always 110% i am very good at my job, reliable, fast in carpets & vinyl . So i have been thinking now for the last few years to emigrate, i finally decided to do it. Now i know floor finishers are in demand, but was wondering what is the best way to go about looking for a job, who to call? And also what visa, I was thinking doing a working visa, to see how i like it, then go for the full thing. so any help and advice would be much apreciated, Thankyou! :spinny:
  21. Hi We are aiming to move to Adelaide in about 2-3 years, once we have sorted our finances out. My hubbys job is on the demand list he works in IT management and has done for over 10 years, however, he wants to learn a trade as well just as something to fall back on and so has been looking at carpert fitting. Can anyone tell me if you have to be working in this trade for a certain length of time before we could imigrate using this? He wants to fit carpets at weekends at the moment so he has his mon to fri job and then this, if it helps us clear our debts quicker then that's a bonus! At the moment his job and carpet fitting have the same points score, he is not sure what he would want to work as at the moment, i think he wants to add another string to his bow and if it gives him the option of a second career path then he would be happy. So... do anyone know if there is a certain amount of time he has to be doing this for if we were to use this as his career on our visas? Many thanks Di

    carpet fitter qualifications

    Does anyone know anything about the carpet fitters assessment for the TRA. We have been told that I will have to complete a AQF Certificate III to pass the criteria for the TRA.From what we can find out it seems that this will cost us about £2k, we was just wondering if anyone else had done this and could tell us what it involves or if anyone else is planning on doing it.
