  1. Hi there my family and myself have just been granted our 175pr visa and i am intending to travel to Australia asap on my own initially just to make sure there is sufficient work around and to convince myself that it is all going to work !! i realise its just after xmas/summer hols and some people arent back to work till the end of the month but i need to get the ball rolling , i intend to be out by mid-feb/early march by which time any slowdown that would have been contributed to xmas etc should be over (and if its not then who knows )i have friends/family in gold coast,brisbane and sunshine coast and intend to travel to all three checking them out ,so what im after please are any email or telephone contact numbers (preferably landline cheers) of either any of the forum members or of anybody that you think would be useful to me to contact prior to me coming out there,i am a time served bricklayer with 21years experience and with a variety of construction jobs/processess under my belt as well as some management experience and qualifications. I am looking for full time work and also would be gratefull of some temporary work on my initial visit for a few weeks to tide me over! Thanks for any help or replys!
  2. hey, after struggling to find work in brisbane we have decided to head for melbourne on sunday. i hope were making the right decision.does any one have advice on the areas for work or does anyone have contact numbers or know if who they are working for is looking for any bricklayers? been in the country 6 weeks so i really need a job.
  3. Hi all, moving August/September to around Bracken Ridge area. Not had much contact on Brits in Brisbane so come here instead. We are aiming at making a few contacts and friends before we come over. Had a recce to Adelaide in February and met some poms there who made us feel very welcome. Guess you've all done the move at some point!?! The plan for a move to Adelaide fell through due to finding work in Brisbane, so awaiting 457 processing! 2 adults plus 3 kids, so looking at some social time maybe a play date or something? very exciting and so much to do, but our heads are screwed on and we trying to be patient! I ma a mentla health nurse and my wife works in elderly care. Just realised that I may have more joy touching base with people on this site as there appears to be more activity. So, if anyone is around the northern suburbs of Brissy would love to hear from you!!!
  4. Hi i am a Joiner with over 10 years experence, in Finishing Joinery. Myself and my family are in the progress of imigration and think that that now would be a good time to set up some contacts for work. As we hope to be in Australia November time. Any areas of information or contacts would be very much appreciated
  5. I was hoping somone out there might be able to help me.... I am desperately trying to find an employer willing to sponsor me in oz. I have my skills assessment as a Hotel/Motel manager and have a 176 visa lodged, however due to the rule changes it looks unlikely ever to happen without n employer sponsor. But I am finding in the hospitality industry it is virtually impossible to even make contact with employers unless I am already eligible to work in Oz. I thought perhaps a smaller or privately run Hotel, motel, caravan park or similar may be more likely to consider me. And I hope someone out there might be in that situation or know of someone who might be interested. Ps I am prepared to go anywhere in Oz...just want to be out there.:daydreaming: Fingers crossed Hazel

So my question is when you are chasing up with the IMMI whom do you phone and what numbers and what time !!! I have tried several times but seem unable to get through to anyone. Do you think our visa will be long ?:wideeyed:

    query on Form 80 - contacts

    Hi there, i'm new to this forum and currently going through my 175 visa application. I've seen quite a few posts about Form 80 but couldnt find anything on this particular question, but apologies if I've missed it and am duplicating. My question is about question 28. It is just headed "details of contacts in Australia" and there are no explanatory notes. What does this mean? Friends? Family, work referees, personal referees, new employer, old employer? It could be anything? What do they want? Can I email my Case Office and ask him what he wants? I'm not sure how "approachable" they are? I would be very grateful for any guidance. Thanks Rojo
  11. should i wear my contacts or glasses for medical, my contacts aren't as clear so maybe the glasses, ooh i dunno, they make u read something do they?
  12. Hi, My son and his mates have been in Perth since Febuary 11th and cannot fid any work at all. Anyone on here who can point them in the right direction? My son done 1 weeks work Tarmacing for 12 hours a day in the 35+ temp however the guys running the job, just disappeared over night for some reason. He is ringing job vacancies every day only to be told that the jobs are gone ( I have my own thoughts on why this should be the case - in fact he has even had the phone put down on him!) Anyway, any help appreciated. As things stand he may have to come back to the U.K at this rate. Please mail me on arrbc at hotmail dot com if you can help/ Regards - JB

  14. Hi.Does anybody out there have any contacts for working in the oil and gas industry? I do have some contacts but always looking for more and a better pay scale..Maybe we could swop some direct e mail contacts. Please get in touch.
  15. Please can someone help, I have gone blank I need to get some people round to give me some quotes for shipment of content of my house. I think I am still in shock we have just sold our house been on the market for 4 months which has seemed like a lifetime, with people asking me nearly every single day have you sold your house yet I could scream. I thought going through the visa process was stressful enough but I cant tell you enough how much I feel stressed. There seems so much to sort out and I dont know where to start. We was not going to take our cat, but now reality has set in I cant leave her here, Does anybody know of any contacts for migrating animals? would be grateful of any help thanks. Cheryl x
