  1. Hi All My husband and I have been in Perth for 6 days and he starts work tomorrow (only two weeks temporary work). He did bring the majority of his hand tools and a drill so he is ready to work but looking to start buying tools to replace the ones he sold on Ebay before we left. Could someone please let us know the best place to buy tools that isnt extortionate! We have a car so we can travel, but currently living NOR. Thanks in advance Lisa
  2. Hello, Putting this post out there to get a few feelers on joinery work in Sydney. I am a qualifed joiner with a 4 year apprenticeship and 10 years’ experience. I work as a joiner on houses/building sites - fitting new kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, decking etc. If anyone reads this who is a joiner it would be good to hear about what joinery work is like in Sydney. From what I see on seek.com.au it's mainly cabinet maker jobs which isn't the type of worked I'd be looking to do. If you have any information on joinery work, pay etc that would be great. Thanks,

Has anybody done this or know of anybody who has done it and what is involved? been in the joinery 20 odd years and still nervous when tested. I have a job sponsor in Perth. Paul:arghh:
  4. Hi All, We am very close to submitting the WA SS form and they need 3 areas for us to choose. We have looked on job sites but finding it hard to work out what the best areas are for a Joiner and a recruitment consultant. :wacko: We have 3 boys (13,15,17) so schools are also important. Does anyone have any experience they could share with us? :notworthy: Any help would be greatly received. Thanks
  5. Hi I have been given 3 potential dates, 24 Sept / 8 Oct / 22 Oct, to carry out my Bench Joiners practical Assessment (ANZSCO 331213) at a college in North London. Is anyone else going and if so have you any idea what we might be expected to do ?

    Work in WA

    At the moment I am working in a college, teaching carpentry and bench Joinery. I teach all ages from 14-??...(school children all the way to diploma and NVQ level 3). I started on a teaching qualification but I have yet to complete it. My wife and I are planning on emigrating early next year. I'm not sure what to do... I can't see any jobs anywhere in Australia for teaching carpentry and Joinery... I have found lots in carpentry and Joinery but not teaching... Would it be best if I went back on the 'tools' or am I just looking in the wrong place.?? I have spent hours and hours searching...:wacko: I love teaching and would really like to carry on with it... Does anyone have any ideas or links to websites that specialise in construction teaching? Thank you. X

    Joinery In OZ!!

    Hi, My names tommy and ive recently returned from a 2 years trip in oz and loved it i planned to only go for a year to travel ended up in a job i loved (not joinery) n by the time i knew it i was onto my second yr. I didnt look to hard for work whilst i was there i just wanted to see as much as possible. Having seen a migration lawyer whilst over there i fell short by 5 points on the skilled migration visa. I really want...and frankly need to go back there i hate the UK so much ive only ever been held back here whereas in oz i flourished!! My question is, how do you go about getting a sponsorship set up i imagine by emailing employers your CV but how successful is this and are there any tips to making yourself stand out?? are there any scheme's or any other ways ways of getting out there!!! Im 24 and a fully skilled Lv 3 Bench Joiner. I fell short with points because i haven't worked in my trade in the last 12 months (because i was to busy living and travelling oz) Any help with this would be incredibly appreciated as the UK offers nothing to people who wish to work hard and its become a very depressing place in the 2 years ive spent over in Oz!! thanks tommy
  8. Hi guys, I am a 21 year old carpenter/joiner in need of job sponsorship in Perth WA. Looking to move over to Perth with my wife and kids. Any sponsored jobs available out there? All help will be sincerely appreciated Garry

    Carpentry & Joinery

    Hi there I am based in the UK but will be returning to Australia, hopefully Queensland. Wondered if I would be able to secure a job offer as a carpenter & joiner, or even a carpenter. Have many years experience, which I could go into detail about if anyone out there wants to know more. In the event of the above not being available, I wondered what would be the best way to source a job in carpentry & joinery from the UK. I am not looking for any cast iron guarantees. In an ideal world, if I knew there was work and a job it would make things a lot easier and, let's face it, the only way I could be judged as to how competent I was when I picked up my tools and proved myself. Any advice at all, or suggestions, would be really appreciated. I don't need sponsorship but a letter indicating a job offer would help, I realise there are no guarantees even if offered.
  10. Hi, We are looking at making the move this time next year and was wondering where would be the best area to look for Joinery jobs. My OH is a Joiner by trade but has been in the UPVC business for quite a while, also what kind of salary would we be looking at? Thanks in advance.
  11. I know its to late in the day to start worry about it now as we are flying out on the 29th June to the Gold Coast, but can anyone tell me what the Carpentry and Joinery work prospects are like there and wage to expect. Have any Carpenters or Joiners recently moved out and struggled to find work, just would like to know what to expect as things are beginning to become a little bit real now. Where it has took us over 2 years to get our finally get our visa it still has not sunk in and Im one of these people who it will not sink in what I have done until the plane lands in Oz then I will panic !!!!!!! Ive been self employed for over 12 years and always found work even through are recession but Oz is the unknown, no contacts ! Can anyone please reasure me I am doing the right thing for my family as I have 4 kids and a wife to house and feed in an unkown country. I better stop now as Im scaring myself even more now! :eek: Thanks Clinton.

    Carpentry and Joinery

    Hello people, we are just starting out with our visa application and i have to do a vetassessment. I'm not worried i have the skills but i want to know are there only 2 application forms, 1 Carpenter, or, 2 joiner or is there a 3rd Carpenter and Joiner. Some of the embedded units in the Carpenter( site based) ASCO 4411-13 form might be a stumbling block because i have no experience (carry out excavations and build formwork). Yes i've built an extension or 2 and dug out the footings but not on a larger scale. I have seen a Carpentry and Joinery ASCO 4411-11 form on a site but not sure if it still exists. Any help will be greatly received. Cheers

    Capentry & Joinery

    Hi, I am looking at getting a job in Oz as a carpenter & joiner on a working holiday visa. I have a City & Guilds NVQ Level 3 qualification. I am also looking at starting the process for a skilled migration visa. Does an NVQ 3 stand up as proof of competency or will i still need to do a skills assessment? (Vetassess). Also what is the best way to find a carpentry job? Many Thanks Clark P.s Im a newbie here
  15. We see alot of people doing carpentry is anyone joining us for joinery on the 5th ?
  16. Hi There, We are a family heading out in June and have allowed ourselves 4 weeks in accomodation before hubby finds a job and a house to rent probably further up the coast preferably. Does anyone have experience in carpentry jobs ? If so are these easy found and what is the pay like as I have to stay at home with the kids.
  17. Hi all, can anyone recommend a training centre in the UK for an AQF level 3 Carpentry / Joinery qualification please? Also any ideas on how much this will cost? Unfortunately the OH has no formal qualifications, although been in the trade for at least 10 years & is more than capeable!!! Been told we have to go via TRA due to our circumstances!! Seems very unfair seeing Vetasses don't require a formal qualification! It's soo frustrating!!!:arghh: Thanks.
