I have been able to strengthen my abilities and have excelled in creating new business opportunities. I can build desire within potential clients were I am a skilled negotiator and will be driven by success. My expertise is Business man .Direct sales, IT, Accountancy administration. I have been a joiner, plumber, tiller and also have done basic electrics.

  17. Hi I arrived in Sydney a month ago. In the UK I had my own kitchen business for 5 years doing customer visits to plan and sell the kitchen, then project managing the installations doing the kitchen fitting myself along with my business partnet. We also had a team of sub contractors for things like Gas & Electric. I am currently looking into the licenses required to fit over here but apparently I can work under someone elses license as a fitters mate? I don't have any tools or transport at this time but again I am looking into this. If anyone needs or knows of anyone who needs a mate that would be great! I am available immediately. I am based in Mosman but have good transport links to the North Shore and the CBD. Cheers, Andy

  19. Hi guys just a quick question am a joiner / carpenter / shop fitter and have just started the visa process and have been asked to start thinking about state sponsorship. Some friends we are hopefully coming with can only qualify with SA state sponsorship.. I have done a search on SEEK and there only seems to be 1 job advertised for my trade compared to Melbourne that has 101 Are trade jobs hard to come by in SA or is it a case like England if you want a job you will get one. I really like the look of SA but without a job it will just be a pipe dream and we may have to look elsewhere Thank you for any help and advice you can give us in advance Keeping fingers and toes firmly crossed

  24. Hello In 2008 I was granted my permanent resident visa to Australia. A number of different things have held us up in England and we hope to be there by the end of this year. I used a company to assist with my application. In England I am a plumber and gas fitter. I have the relevant qualifications and fifteen years experience in plumbing. As part of the process my training, work experience and certificates were looked at by the TRA and obviously met the criteria for the trade in demand list and the visa granted. In 2009 I visited in order to validate my visa, we visited the Plumbers Licensing Board and obtained some information regarding how my qualifications compared and what I needed to do to obtain a job once we arrived. I was given some information on Tradesperson's Licence Application, was told I would need to sit a day course in order to prove that I am a plumber and then a weeks course in order to understand the different regulations involved, once we were in Australia. We spoke to a lot of trades people while we were there and was roughly told the same.However I have today been to an expo and been informed that this is not the case. I was informed that I must do the one day course in order to get a Workcover White Card, which is fine, but then I must take a 3 day a week course over 7 weeks to the cost of £3000, but I have to do this in England, I cannot do this in Australia any longer, the place where I could do this no longer exists. He referred to it as Gap training . He advised I cannot land in Australia and hope to get a job. We informed him we had known obviously there were things I needed to do, the day course and then the week course, we had looked into it when we were there we had been informed the place to do the test was in Freemantle, he just said again there is no where to sit the courses now in Australia. I have looked online about the gap training and it does exist, but I have also been on the Plumbers Licensing Board website and the process appears to be the same as it was in 2009. I am very confused. Please could you inform me about the correct procedure and can it be done once I am in Australia. Thank you :biggrin:
  25. Once a plumber/gas fitter has all his licences what can he expect to earn? I keep seeing around $65k that is obviously if he works for a company, is that correct? What about self employed? We would struggle immensly on 65k and spend at least 15% of that get a licence in the first place! Change of career possibly?!?!
