  1. Hi.... Im interested in talking to any Nurses who have used Justice Health to gain employment in Australia. I am dual trained and looking to move with my son to New South Wales late next year, so making general enquiries to start ball rolling :smile: Any info greatly appreciated!! Many thanks
  2. We're moving out next year and I'm wondering whether we'll end up sounding like the locals. Made me think, have you guys who're there already picked up the Aussie twang? Cheers
  3. Hello again, I am applying for the State sponsored residence visa- 886. Mu nominated occupation is on the eligibility list... Life Scientist but my experience is in Food technology and Quality assurance (food industry) that is more close to 'Chemist',which is also on the list... To get my degree assessed again is going to take ages... I am afraid I might be too late to apply for sponsorship. Therefore want to know if its ok to apply for sponsorship as is... As my degree is the same... Or is there any way to convince Vetassess to assess my degree only which is quicker... ?? Help!!! Thanks, Chaitali
  4. Jane my wife had a telephone job interview with Shaun Gillespie the Director of Nursing at the Calvary North Hospital, this morning at 06.30 a.m. Jane has got the job. Working on the 26 Bed Oncology Ward there. The best thing about it is that they are willing to train Jane up to be an Enrolled Nurse, then an optional opportunity to train for RGN. We are overwhelmed with this opportunity and I am ever so proud of my wife. She has worked as a healthcare assistant for 16 years now and always dreamt to be a Nurse, but because of having children and the expense for the Nurse training, she has never managed it. I have gained the actual visa and have the vast amounts of experience and qualifications, so we took it for granted that I will gain suitable employment and Jane will find a part-time job eventually. Then this happens. I have also got my interview with Alex Edwards-Brown the Director of Nursing for the Glenside Campus Hospital, sometime next week, I am very confident in gaining a job through him. In addition, I had a viewing for my house on Tuesday and the guy telephoned me yesterday and said to me that he will come and see me today at 1pm today and that he wants me to tell him a price for my house and with everything to go with it, the furniture - the all lot. Also we have agreed not to go through the estate agent, thus saving me £3k in fees. The best part is, he is going to give me cash in the hand, obviously through solicitors. I am currently waiting for an operation for Hiatus Hernia, because I am in major pain. I am now considering paying for a private consultation and this consultant referring me for the operation, too see if this can speed things up, but it will have to be on the NHS. However I have now decided to still come to Adelaide if I dont suceed with my operation before Xmas and see if I can have it in Adelaide. All this has happened in the last few days, bloody hell we have hit the ground running and Wow! We are going to enjoy the ride. Jane's job starts in January, our house sold today and move out by end of October. Spend Xmas with my family in Burnley, Lancashire and also Jane's family in Leicester and then fly out late December/early January, bye bye freezing Newcastle upon Tyne. Hello Summer in Adelaide. After I have spoken to the guy who is buying my house today I will then search for flights and once I have booked them I will then apply for AOA via South Australia Government. Need to sort out removals, just to take our clothes and odds and sods. Right you readers: Need your help/assistance (join our ride). lol. QUESTIONS 1. What are the best area's to reside/live, which will be near Calvary North Hospital and Glenside Campus Hospital as well as near the CBD, transport links, the beach and just as important we have kids at 21 (lad), 17 (girl) and 11(girl) so we need somewhere lively (entertainment wise), for them to enjoy. More urgently is to provide us with some places where there are community houses are, so we can at least request certain areas for our AOA. Nothing wrong with just requesting on the application form for AOA. 1.5 Also friends please, especially for my kids, Love BBq's if anyone is having any (hint hint)., thats for the oldies, lol. 2. The best places to look for cheap flights to Adelaide. 3. Removal companies, must admit thinking of John Mason. However through Moneycorp they have a removal company, which we get a discount and its only three miles away from my current home. 4. Because AOA is not certain, what is the best option for a back-up plan regarding suitable accommodation. Is there any problems if I arrange alternative accommodation and then cancel it at th every last minute due to gaing AOA. I would fancy a caravan park for a back-up. WE ARE SO HAPPY !!!!! __________________
  5. Everyone out there! We have gained our Skilled Migration Subclass 475 Visa this morning. (God I love that e-mail). It's been a long process, which at times has been very stressful/worrying and the waiting to find out if I have passed the next stage after the next stage after the next stage and then finally waiting for the final outcome. But nevertheless I did it. This is one of my biggest achievements so far because it has meant so much to me. On the day I started my Visa application I purchased a really good Champagne and I stated that I will open it and drink the lot on the day I receive my visa. Well thats today. Yipee!!!! One problem I am not a drinker so I will be hungover tomorrow but who cares, because, I HAVE MY VISA - I HAVE MY VISA - I HAVE MY VISA - YEAH!!!! I need to sell my home now so I can actually get on that plane to Adelaide, South Australia. Tony (Newcastle upon Tyne)
  6. Hi, I've just applied online for the 176 visa. I've uploaded all the standard documents for age, skills, job, marriage etc. Am I right in thinking that I only need to get the medical and police checks done when I'm advised to? Also, should I expect to get a CO within two weeks? (still on the CSL...) Thanks Dave A
  7. All our worldy goods turned up between Christmas and New Year, finally, courtesy of ********* in the UK and Chess Moving here in Brisbane. It left the UK just before we did at the end of October, arrived in Oz on the 8th December, and then turned up at our door on the 27th December. And the good news is that we've gained some! It seems that by the powers invested in them, the removers have managed to turn 20 glass sets into 420 piece glass sets, a set of 4 crystal glasses into a 25 piece set, etc..... The downside is that they all seem to be a little more inconvenient to drink out of - liquids don't seem to stay in them any more and the cuts to lips do hurt. More good news! Since they've dropped half our belongings, they've also presented us with an opportunity to put in an insurance claim for almost £6000 so that we can go out and buy some some brand spanking new shiny stuff! So far, the list runs to: One 42" LCD TV (which I caught one of them dropping in the lounge on delivery) 2 PCs plus one monitor and other PC kit One american style side-by-side fridge freezer One dishwasher (exactly how much force does it take to buckle the steel chassis??) One washing machine One waterbed (thanks to the careless use of a knife on opening a box) One expensive oil painting and other smaller framed pictures Countless bits of glassware and crockery Have to think positive, otherwise I'd be deeply p****d off....
