  2. Hi all! I am a 27 year old Graphic/Web/UI/Visual Designer (I fit into all those job categories!) with a Graphic Design degree under my belt and years of experience working full time as well as freelance. I visited Australia back in 2012 on a Working Holiday Visa, worked freelance for a few Australian clients, and also did some retail work, but I only stayed 7 months (which seems a long time to me anyway!) due to personal circumstances. After living the lifestyle, and also having family members in Oz, I'd now like to move there and find design employment. I'd happily work freelance or full time. However, although there are lots of suitable jobs around all across Australia, many state that you will of course need eligibility to work in Australia. But I'd need a company to sponsor me. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on finding sponsored work as a Designer please? Shall I continue to apply for jobs on sites like Seek and just tell them I'd like them to sponsor me? Or should I be going down better, alternative routes to find sponsored work? I'd really appreciate any advice, thank you in advance! Dale
  3. Hi I currently work as a Senior Graphic Designer in the UK and have always wanted to move to Australia for a year or two to see if I like working out there Just wondered what was the best way to go about it? and if there's much call for Graphic Designers in Australia? Many Thanks

    Migration Graphic Design Advice

    Hi my name is Joe. I'm new to the forum but in need of some advise if any one can help. I am 30 years old and have recently returned from Australia after spending 2 years in the country on a working holiday visa. I was getting sponsored but my employer decided they didn't want to go through with it at the last min and with only a few weeks left on my visa I had to return to the UK. I am looking at returning to Australia but if any one has any advice that would be most appreciated. I am a Graphic Designer with a degree and have been working constantly in Graphic Design for 9 years. Since returning from Oz I am currently employed full time in an advertising agency. I have seen that Graphic Design is not on the main Skills list but is currently on a State Sponsorship Migration skills list. I am wondering if it is worth applying for State Sponsorship. Or Applying to a business and try to get sponsored. I have been in contact with a few migration agents but have had mixed advice on which would be the best route to go! Can anyone recommend a good agent? I don't mind where I go in Oz and know its going to cost a lot but its worth it. Glastonbury and Wimbledon have just started so it's nothing but a summer of rain http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/images/smilies/cry.gif! Hope someone can help Thanks Joe
  8. I have recently accepted a job in the Gold Coast, the office is in Helensvale. My partner and I are in a dilemma for a number of reasons and are really confused as to what to do. I'm British but have been living in Singapore for almost 4 years, my partner is Singaporean. I've accepted a position for around 90k before deductions. After calculating tax & outgoings for each month for everything we can think of, it seems we're left with about 1k a month for generally stuff and trips etc,. I know it will be less than that as there is always things we can't account for without experience. We decided to move for a better life but it actually seems like we may be in the same position or probably a little worse off than we are here in Singapore, of course there are other benefits like less crowded, less stressful etc. I'd just like to get an opinion perhaps from other people living there under the same kind of package or at least can advise on whether they think its doable comfortably. We're both in our mid-late twenties and don't live a lavish lifestyle, it would be nice to have a nice little one bed to come back home to, maybe somewhere where we can sip a cold beer on the balcony after work, we were looking at places so far for around $300-$350 a week. we're also bringing our kitten which makes things even harder! We're also both worried that my partner won't be able to find a job. Obviously we don't mind struggling for a while and supporting ourselves on one income source, but it worries us that she may never get a job. Shes a graphic/multimedia designer with only around 2 years work experience. We're thinking to live somewhere around Labrador / Hope Island / Helensvale where she can access the train for jobs in South Brisbane as she doesn't drive. The right location for us is also a worry. We both like a laugh but don't really want to be landed in Surfers having to wade through the drunken louts every night or stuck in some sleazy condo full of loud partying holiday makers. We're making the move on a shoe string budget, pretty much putting all we have into the cost of the move so we're at a big crossroads now and are both pretty stressed :-D Thanks in advance for any comments, we both appreciate any comments. We have crawled the online forums for information over the last few weeks but decided it might be good to post in case anyone is in a similar situation or has some advice!! Ade
  9. Me and my wife have decide to move to Oz we are hoping to live and work in Brisbane on a 457 visa. I found an employer willing to give me a job but they wont sponsor a visa :sad: My work as a Altro Hygienic wall cladder is very specialist and I'm not holding out much hope for a job coming up. My Wife Is a Graphic Designer and has found quite a few jobs on Seek.com.au Should we use a friends address (in Brisbane) on her Resume. Should we mention the need for sponsorship from the start? We are over in August and hoping to line up meetings/interviews with potential employers.
  10. Hi all, I'm currently doing my skills assessment for graphic pre press and was hoping anyone who has been through the process would get in touch and give some info, advise or any help will be appreciated. Look forward to hearing from you. Julian

    Graphic design jobs

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to move to Australia in September on a working holiday visa, while also potentially applying for a skilled sponsored visa. I'm a graphic designer with experience with mainly fashion/beauty brands here in the UK, working for the likes of Asos.com and Chanel. Fashion is a huge thing to me when it comes to graphic design, so I’m hoping to move into the same field in Australia, though i am aware that its a step back from the scene here in London, that’s not a problem. I'm just wondering where the best place is for such work - Melbourne or Sydney? I've been speaking to so many people and they give mixed reviews, so some help would be much appreciated. My current job lies with a fashion magazine, so it would be great to jump into the same thing out there, so any ideas on where the magazines are based? where the fashion hub is? which is the most fashionable of the two? I know Australian Fashion Week is in Sydney, but then I’ve also been told that the creative jobs/people are all in Melbourne? Share the light...pleeeeeeease. Thanks so much :cool:
  12. Has anyone completed the qualification in this? Im having real trouble trying to document evidence needed for this qualification, and could do with some advice if anyone can help! Many thanks Jason
  13. Hi all Can anyone help with any websites for jobs for the above skills? In Uk terms he is typesetter/mac operator/financial typesetter. Would appreciate some guidance as newbie to this forum and looking to go to OZ. Thanks a bunch! Ellie :hug:

    Graphic Design Jobs

    Anyone else having trouble breaking into the graphic design scene over here. I've got almost 3 years experience can use all number of print and web design programs and yet can't a look in. Just a shedload of rejection letters. I have managed to land a part-time design role, which might hopefully go full-time in the future, but no guarantees so i'm still looking. I think people see that i'm a Brit and can't be bothered thinking that it'll be expensive to employ me or something. When in fact its cheap as chips and it pretty much means i have to work for them for my whole time in the country. I blame the economy everyone's scared to spend money. Any similar tales you'd like to share, or just some advice would be nice. Cheers!

    TRA graphic pre-press

    Hi everyone New to site and first posting. Have enough points to qualify under sponsored 176 and are looking to do TRA for my wife under Graphic Pre Press but have been advised that as she has not done 900 hours external training whilst employed she is unlikely to get a positive assessment. As the Pre Press operator is not a recognised profession in the UK with specific qualifications you can train to we are unsure how it can be possible to obtain a pass. In my wifes case she has diploma's in Graphic Design, from 4 years study, and can demonstrate that the courses covered many of the descriptors in DIAC job description. Since then she has worked in a printers and her current employer (over20 yrs experience ) doing the job of a GPP in everything but name. She can provide verification that she has followed a learning pathway throughout plus had external training in new developments such as Apple Mac and digital printing. Are we wasting our time? Has anyone been successful under Pre Press since Pathway D removed? V fed up as seem to be hitting a brick wall everywhere we turn. Any help or advice would be welcome.:confused:

  17. Hello, good morning! We are in the mid of preparing the commitment statement to apply for ACT State Sponsorship. We were browsing on SEEK - Australia's no. 1 jobs, employment, career and recruitment site for my occupation: Graphic Designer and hubby: Picture Framer. What I got is 4 listing while 0 for hubby. Getting kind of worry of the employment opportunity. Does anyone here has any suggestion/advice for us on the employment opportunity in ACT and what sort of information to include in commitment statement? Do we need to list down the vacancies available or the website/recruitment agency that we contacted? Please advice. Thank you in advance. cheers!
  18. Hi All, I've been in the printing industry now for the past 13 years but unfortunately have no formal qualifications as yet. I am at the moment doing a City and Guild Level III Pre Press Technical Certificate. Is there anyone out there who can advise me on the best way forward trying to get through TRA. Is there a specific course I could do or is there an assessment I could do that would help me????? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

  21. Hi Everyone, I am due to leave London in a couple of weeks to go and join my partner in Sydney who recently left for a new job. I am a graphic designer and keen to get work asap when out there. Does anyone have any advice with regards to searching for graphic jobs or does anyone have any contacts worth getting in touch with? I've worked for ad agencies, retail brands, architect practices so my background is pretty varied and would consider any area of graphic design. I would be so so grateful if anyone could help. I have searched through the usual websites - mycareer.com.au, seek.com.au - but there is barely anything there. (mild panic!) I couldn't be more thrilled to be moving to Sydney but want to make sure I can secure some work be it freelance etc so I can fund this new life i've been planning in my head for months. Thanks in advance. Jen
  22. Hi, any advice on getting Graphic Design jobs in Perth? It is not a requirement of visa as oh has adequate points. I'm a recent graduate, so not much experience, but BA hons & portfolio. Really looking to see what opportunities are out there etc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :arghh:
  23. Hi all, With so much valuable advice offered on POI - I'm hoping that somewhere, someone will be able to help with my dilema..... After months of persuading OH that Oz would be a great place to settle, we're finally about to start the ball rolling with the first phase of the visa application - having discussed our options with migration agents it seems that 'Skilled Regional Sponsored' is the way to go. OH is a very talented graphic designer - at the moment regions sponsoring graphic designers are South Australia and Tasmania (although we'd initally hoped to go to Melbourne) anyway, I've scouted loads of recruitment websites for graphic designer jobs but not getting very far :no:. OH happy to go to Australia provided he can find work otherwise no way - can anyone help me please and offer any advice on creative agencies or specialist recruitment agencies in or just outside Adelaide - I fear that without the possibility of finding work, this Australian dream will not be realised. HELP!!!!
