  1. Hi all who read this, I am an experienced 360 excavator operator looking for a better life and a better job than in UK and Europe. There are not many machines that I have not driven that I have not got on my Licence. In the UK you have to have a CPCS card (Construction Plant Certification Scheme) otherwise you cannot get a job on any site without it. My card is still current as it has to be renewed every 5 years. Can any firm or company help me to realise a better future by employing me ? I do have a CV that I can email to you if you so require. I now live in France but I cannot get a job here because my Licences are in English and not in French and they will cost me 1000.00€ per item on my licence including my HGV licence (thats not valid either, its English not French). The big problem is that I am 56 years old. P.S RandyCockerel is because I was a chicken farmer in France !
  2. hi I'm off to Oz with my family in August (have visa already) and I was considering a career change. I have been having truck driving lessons in the UK and plan to have some lessons in Oz and then get my HR licence. This is probably going to be in Perth. I've read lots about truck drivers being in demand, however when I look through all the job adverts, pretty much every one asks for experience. Now I'm thinking that I might struggle to get a driving job being a Pom with no experience. Has anyone had any experience of getting a driving job? Do you think I will struggle with no experience? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks Lee
  3. Hi, My partner (Irish) finally has his residency visa sorted and is now looking for work. It's been a bit of a suprise to us that he hasn't picked up something immediately as there's so much construction going on in victoria. Maybe it's a case of who you know? Anyways - just wondering if anyone out there has knowledge of any openings or could give him his first break? He has current white card and OHS Competency ticket (Class LE - Excavators), drivers license and own transport - just needing the job now :-). Prefer something in the south east of Victoria (we're in Berwick) but obviously willing to travel elsewhere if need be - or even take up work in the mines. Cheers

    22 Yrs Experienced Carpenter asking for help

    Hi All I am just collecting my OH paperwork together to apply for a Assessment Skill Test now that he has decided that a carpenter fits him best. Tax assessments, P60's form when he became Ltd, accounts for the last 8 years, photos of work, refences from customers etc etc. This last bit I have found tricky as some you file in very safe places never to be seen again but i have to say the tax office on this occassion have been very helpful!!! My question is do I send all the documents in by post ie accounts which are origionals or does my OH take these to an assessment and hand them over along with a check list that the instructor could sign to receipt? Aalso if anyone has recently sat their assessment can they let us know what was required on the day as the links that I have found are pre July before it changed. Does he need to take tools and any idea how long it is taking for assessments to come through? Sorry to ask so many questions DIY is such a lot to take in and my husband is 45 in June 2012 so time is ticking but we are hopeful
  5. Arriving in Sydney in November. I've been on a full bike licence in the UK for almost 10 years commuting in London, and would like to do the same in Sydney. Hoping someone here is a biker and can help me understand what my full UK bike licence will enable me to do. My attempts to understand the NSW RTA website seem to suggest that: - Initially I can only ride a class R bike (which means weedy) - After 6 months without leaving the country I can then apply for a P1 plate on a class R bike for 12 months, then a P2 plate on a class R bike (but ride slowly everywhere) for 2 years and finally a full licence. Am I really stuck on a wee bike riding slowly for 3 1/2 years? Does 10 years of big bike experience in the UK have no bearing?

  10. We have been here 6 months now on New Years Day. We have just had our first Aussie Christmas and it was different but really good. We decided that we would not try and recreate our UK Christmas as it was blatantly obvious that it was not going to compare so we spent the day at the beach with some friends and their children and had a fab time sipping sparkling wine and eating strawberries, cherries and smoked salmon. We Kayaked and fished and swam it was idylic, we then turned down our friends offer of a barbie to go home and have some family time. We bought a whole salmon and stuck it on the barbie and had it with salad and wedgies and had Christmas Pudding and cream to follow. We then Skyped our family who were just getting up at that time and heading out into the freezing cold for their Christmas Dinner. 6 months in and we still love it. Matts job is going from strength to strength he works really hard and basically gets rewarded very well for all his hard work. His boss paid for our son to go on the Christmas Do as we didnt have a baby sitter and he bends over backwards to keep Matt there. I still love the area and I would rate the beach here at Secret Harbour as second to none. It still takes my breath away every time I walk up over the sandunes and see that amazing sight. Its great as Travis is home from school and I dont have to work and have plenty of time to spend with him and no worries about childcare. The school has been amazing with Travis and we could not fault them in anyway, he has won award after award and we are very proud of him. He had a minor set back in that his best mate who he was calling for moved up north so that they could be nearer work so he is a little put out as he doesnt feel he wants to call for anyone else, hopefully he will soon though. Well just to say, and I know its a well worn phrase but, we are still "living the dream" and would recommend it to anyone:jiggy:
  11. So we have only a few weeks left (27 days) to move to my dreamland called Australia. Since last week, I have noticed a different behavior with my wife. She has been going out almost every single night with her friends. She wants to make the most of it and be with them and have fun with them as much as she can before we move. Fair enough! Then the panic attacks and the crying started. Obviously she has been bottling it all up cause she does not want to upset me as she knows it has always been my dream. Don't take me wrong, she loves OZ too and has been/is really looking forward to it! To make matters worse, she is loving it at her work too (she is a primary school teacher) !!!!!!! So, she will be missing her friends and her job. We will have practically no-one in Brissy. So, I'll go to work, she will stay home (or most probably going around into shops!!) or find a part time since she does not want to work full time cause of our little one. Probably she will feel lonely and lost. That means I'll be screwed.... I always listen to her and try to make her feel better and encourage her and strengthen her and reassure her or take her shopping (its her medicine!) or wine or.....but reality still remains there. In my opinion, the real solution is for her to get out here, make new friends, find an interesting part time job, become a member of places where she can practice her hobbies, integrate with the place and feel part of it, the community etc.....but being on your own is not always easy to do these and I can't baby sit all day cause I am sure will be busy with work and stuff.... Why some people aren't just strong enough no matter how much you train them? Or maybe I am an alien? Did you guys pass through this and what did it you? How did you handle it? Cheers B!K3R

  17. Hi We have been here ( Joondalup, Perth )since before Christmas and I am in need of some work .I was a construction manager in the UK but so far I have been unable to secure a job doing the same thing here as my experience is all UK based. My trade background is carpentry, I have been in the building industry for over 24 years, have lots of experience at all levels both on the tools and in management but most importantly I am willing to do anything to bring in a wage to keep us all here. If anybody needs a hand or knows of any opportunities I would be really grateful. Unfortunately I do not have my tools here so I am limited to a certain extent but I can buy the basics if needed …….I just need a chance to impress! Thanks Kris
  18. Hi All, My friend and I are arriving in Perth on the 22nd Jan from Oxford and are looking to start work immediately. We both have a range of building experience, originally were groundworkers, but both have 4 years of experience in plastering / dry lining / taping and jointing etc. We are willing to do any sort of work on arrival and just want to get organised. We are both hard workers and fast learners so getting to grip with new tasks will not be a problem. If any one has information on any jobs around this time would be amazing! Or if any one knows the best way to find work on arrival in perth i.e agencies e.t.c then please help us !!! Also any recommeded places to rent apartments ? Any info will be much appreciated! kindest Regards Aaron O'sullivan

I am wanting to apply for a skilled independant migrant visa (175) I have completed the associated assessment test and scored 125 points however there is a section on the test that asks for recent work experience. (see link) Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175) I have over 11 years experience in the catering industry but I have been working as a consultant for the past 12 months not assoiciated with catering.

  22. My OH has just been chatting online with a friend who is currently living in Adelaide. He works as a contractor in IT in a fairly specialised field. He is in his mid 40s. He says that he has experienced some problems getting work because the employers prefer young employees. The situation is getting so bad for him that he is considering leaving Australia. OH is also mid 40s and a contractor in IT but in a different, very specialised field, and this is ringing some alarm bells. So....are there any other "old" PIO members around? Have you experienced this attitude? Is it more prevalent in Adelaide or is it a national issue?
  23. My partner will have completed her NHS training in 2009 and we are seriously considering a move to Aus. The biggest challenge (I think) will be for me to get work. I have been an SDM for around 15 years now - I will be 50 in Jul 09 - do you think this will be a major challenge? Personally, I would prefer to do something completely different but I doubt I would have sufficient experience or ability by 2009. Any comments welcome
