    lift engineer jobs

    wanting to go out to Aus once i have passed out at NVQ level 3 in lift engineering. once i am a trained lift engineer with a years experience i want to emigrate with my girlfriend to Perth. Was wondering what my chances are and if i need to find a sponsor etc... I have heard that the lift industry in Aus is split into mechanical and electrical and was wondering if anybody on this forum knows how my nvq level 3 in lifts would stand up. Also how long do you have to be in Aus before you can apply for residency and then citizenship.
  2. Hi all.... We lodged our 190 visa on 23/4/14.... ive been eagerly following the feb 190 posts but as they're a few months ahead of us I thought it might be helpful to start a new thread.... has anyone had any updates on their April lodged 190 visa?? Or even received the dreaded 'delay email'?? We have literally heard nothing at all. We front loaded our medicals and police checks so hoping that speeds up the process... hubby's trade is a lift mechanic... we are desperately hoping to be gone during the summer holidays, I think this can be done!!! Looking forward or hearing others thoughts and experiences. mel and adam ?

  4. My apprenticeship is coming to an end in the coming months, and recently going to Sydney/Melbourne on a 3 week holiday, I've got the bug to get back out there and make something of it. I've just turned 21, halfway through my 4th year Mechanical engineering apprenticeship working on all aspects of lift engineering/installation. I'm still undecided in what route to take, backpacking way (which I've kind of done) or the sponsor way, and settling down in the one place and finding my feet soon as. Advice? Im still yet to go through the migration and visa process, but once that's sorted in the new year, does anyone know what the lift industry is like down under? It's not just lift's I'd be interested in, I'd consider other engineering jobs. Any advice and information would be grateful, thanks. Jack.

    lift mechanic skills assessment

    Here is my dilemma, I have recently decided to look into moving to Australia. I have looked at a lot of information, so to start with, I found my occupation on the SOL list, lift mechanic, I also contacted a migration agent, and then thought maybe I could try and do the visa application myself. I know I need to do a skills assessment with TRA, and I want to try and get the assessment passed before any other process of the application, the issue is, about 10 years ago I began work as a lift engineer, I passed an informal apprenticeship, plus passed a NC college course on electrical engineering, 5 years ago, I changed occupation to a firefighter and then continued to work part-time as a lift engineer. So now I work 16-24 hours a week as a lift engineer, and when looking at the TRA website, it states you have to have been employed full time for 12 of the last 24 months, does anyone know if this will make my assessment invalid, I asked the migration agent I was initially in touch with, but they said email them a CV to start the application with them, I don't want to part with any money, if my trade won't be recognised. Any help would be great Thanks Neil

  13. My girlfriend spoke to a migration consultant today and she was told that trades people struggle to get skilled migration visas. I am a lift mechanic and have worked in the lift industry for 10 years but have only been qualified for 1 year. I am qualified at NVQ level 3 but he said that I would have had to have done an apprenticeship as the dept of immigration only recognise this. Im not entirely sure he is correct in what he has told me. I did think I might struggle getting the skilled visa as I only have one years qualified experience but I have heard that if you have been in the trade for a while, there is something called a TRA. By the way he came across, even if I had 5 years experience I would not stand a chance because of my NVQ route. PLEASE HELP!
  14. Can anyone recommend truck hire in Mandurah area? We are moving house, have just tried a couple of local hire firms and they are all booked for that date!!! Starting to panic now........any ideas??!!!!
  15. Hi there, am new to the site so still finding my feet on here. My husband and our 3 children are hoping to start the visa prosses soon and will be going over on a 175 visa but my concerns already are that i've been on to seek and career one and although my husbands job is on the wanted list we can't seem to find anything on there so am worried that perhaps it's not as in demand as we first thought? Would be very greatful if someone could perhaps point us in the right direction to where these jobs may be hiding? maybe i'm putting job title in wrong? Thanks in advance for any info you can pass on madsam xxx

  19. Good moring guys As you mostly know we are going to Oz on my skills as a hairdresser, my hubby is a print finishe (doesnt involve binding though) but he also has a FLT counter balance and reach license which has been part of his job for the past 5 years or so, so he has plenty of experience in it. Im just wondering if we could use his work experience towards ur points rather than me having to do the IELTS test, does anyone know if its on any of the skills lists, I want him to feel like he is contributing something to us going over there. I know there are FLT jobs paying around a tenner an hour (£ not $) so not too worried about him getting a job there,

We are planning on doing a reccie in September to Validate the visa, are there any meets going on in Melbourne, Sydney or Perth during this month ? Once again, thanks to all

    Lift or Elavator

    In Australia is a lift more commonly known as a lift or an eleavator? Slight difference of opinion in the Proctor houshold this afternoon. Please help between disputing this non important matter with my wife and baby crawling up my leg demanding attention and leaving trickles of vomit all over the floor I am finding it diffucult to concentrate on todays rugby, although my attention is flagging after the first game.
