    TRA and Chefs

    Hi, We have been thinking about a move down under for a while now and have finally decided that now is the time to give it a go. I know our first step is the TRA skills assessment and was hoping someone could help. Hubby has been a chef for the last 18 years. He has letters of reference from almost all his employers over that time (which states his time with them and his job title etc but they don't go into detail about the duties he carried out) but because of the business he is in most of the owners/managers are no longer there and some of the hotels aren't either! Would he have to do statutory declarations for all of these and just include these references with the application to back up his employment times? Also, exactly how much information do they need for each job? Are there any other chefs out there that can point us in the right direction? We would really appreciate any help anyone can give us. Ta in advance, JG
  2. The Australian (one of the two Australian national newspapers) is reporting today that chefs, bricklayers and tilers are to be added to the SOL: Coalition opens way for foreign chefs, brickies "THOUSANDS of foreign chefs, bricklayers and tilers will no longer have to be sponsored by employers to obtain permanent visas, as the Abbott government eases skilled migration rules to address alleged labour shortages. Under changes backed by business groups, the three professions have been added to the Skilled Occupation List from July, meaning these workers will be able to apply for a permanent visa without requiring a sponsor." More information is here: http://www.gmskilled.com/?p=1023 Best regards.

    Chef jobs in Brisbane

    Happy to move, about to apply for visas etc just would love to know is it realistic to go without a job planned? I have trawled the Internet and on seek.com.au alone for full time jobs in Brisbane there are over 200 jobs advertised. If applying nearer the time do you think that its realistic to think within a few weeks of moving (if not before) he could land a job? Happy to hear all opinions

    Chefs emigrating???

    Hi Everyone, Just wondered if any Chefs and their family has Emigrated to oz, my husband is a head chef and we have applied for a 175 Visa which was lodged on 16/01/09 so just a long wait now - But he wants to know if the working hours will be the same or less or more than here in the uk, we are hoping to live in either Brisbane or Perth but still checking out areas in both citys and their suburbs. We keep hearing different things about both areas so that's why we can not decide??? It will probably come down to jobs available. But would like info on what area's are friendly, not to icolated - i'm very much a people's person, good schools for our 2 children aged 4 and 10 ( when we get to go they will be 5 and 11) low on crime and vandilism, fairly close to a beach - within 1 to 2 hours away. Any info would be much appreciated:biggrin: Thanks, Sarah & Simon.
  8. Hi all, Just after some advice from those of you who have any experience within the mining industry..... Hubby has been granted WA SS 176 back in Feb & is flying to Perth later this week. He saw few adverts for Chefs positions within the mining industry and this is something he would like to look into when he gets there. Does anyone have any experience working within the mining industry? What is it like? Are these jobs popular and therefore difficult to get? Hubby's been in the british army for 22 years and recently came back from Afghanistan so he is used to hostile and remote environments. Failing that, are there plenty of jobs for chefs in Perth? We looked on seek.com.au and there seems to be a lot but I always take these with a pinch of salt. Any advice on either mining chef positions or just normal chef position would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

    any other 121/856 visa chefs?

    Hi all, I thought I would start a thread to see if theres anybody else out there in the process of applying for a permanent 121/856 visa as a chef? If there is maybe we could help one another by sharing knowledge etc. I'm currently working on the skills assesment application. If theres people in the same boat, great. If not this thread will just ride itself off into the sunset. Hope to chat soon.

  17. Hi All We are moving out on the 26th of Jan, we are both chefs (had our own restaurant for the past 15 years) and are heading for the sunshine coast area around Noosa. Was wondering if anyone had any info about jobs in that area in the catering trade?? I may decide its too hot in those ozzy kitchens and do something outside instead. just wait and see.

  18. What are we going to be when we grow up? Chefs, health workers and hair-dressers - some courses are sure to land you a job . Meanwhile, undergraduate nursing applications rose 6 per cent nationally this year but this is unlikely to reduce needs across the health-care sector, particularly in aged care. Federal Government projections to 2013-14 show health care and social assistance, education and training, scientific and technical services and the retail trade will be the main employers. Interesting, many in Australian media were proclaiming no such shortages exist?

    Chefs and H&S

    Hi, my husband is about to send off his application for citizenship by descent. He is a Chef with plenty of experience over here. He has all his NVQs etc and food hygiene and Health and safety. But I have heard that OZ are very strict on their trade certificates. Is there anything as a chef that he needs to be doing over here or plan to do as soon as he arrives over there. Would hate t arrive and find he cannot apply for work for x weeks as he has to do a certificate. Thanks
  20. Chefs and hairdressers will top the list of most sought-after jobs as Australia emerges from the wake of the global financial crisis. It is thought that the highly transient nature of these jobs, with a high turnover and burnout rate, contributes to the skills shortage in these areas and the inability of supply to meet demand.
