  1. Hello there I was hoping someone may be able to help. We submitted our skills assessment with AIM (Australian Institute of Management) three weeks ago. On the website it states it will take up to 4 weeks to get back to you with a result. When we submitted the application we filled out the page asking for credit card details so that we could pay the fee. The four weeks is up next Tuesday and AIM hasn’t acknowledged our application (although I know it has been delivered as we tracked it with the courier) and they haven’t deducted the fee from the credit card yet. I wanted to check if anyone had submitted an application for a skills assessment with AIM and if this was normal or whether we should have submitted an alternative way to pay? Also does anyone know if there is a delay in processing skills assessments with AIM? Any info anyone could provide would be appreciated. Thanks C
  2. Anyone have any suggestions on head hunting org that deals with more technical jobs? I've got over 15 years dealing with satellites and some IT in various project management and leadership positions. Not talking about satellite tv installations, but actually operating satellites, and teleport/gateway sites. Willing to branch out into other technical fields, as I've done quite a few different jobs, maintenance, risk management, etc. over the years.
  3. Hi all, My wife and i have been considering trying for a visa etc for a while and are commencing the process soon. My question is regarding jobs.... I am an Engineering Manager with significant leadership / budgetary experience in FMCG manufacturing and more recently the uk power generation industry and I am a chartered electrical engineer (BEng CEng MIET). My wife is a senior occupational therapist with both nhs and private experience. I realise both our careers are sought after but wanted to know what the likelyhood of getting sponsored jobs would be ( + salary) as I have a good job now and would not want to drop standard of living etc. Your thoughts / comments would be appreciated Cheers G PS We are flexible on area and primarily want to move for the weather and better life for the children (2 & 4)
  4. I am looking at moving to Australia from the UK. I currently work as a sales and marketing manager within the hardwood industry and have been doing this job for almost 12 years now. Within that time I have studied a 5 year business management degree at Birmingham university various college courses and also owned my own business which my current employer bought off me. I have visited Sydney, the Gold Coast and also Brisbane and would consider these areas. If you would like to know more about me then please feel free to email me simonpurchase@hotmail.co.uk I am looking at full time career and would have no plans to move back to the UK. If you know of any good jobs then please get in touch it would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  5. having meandered through the wealth of information on here, and pored over DIAC and skill select, looked at possible nominated skills and assessment bodies, I have got myself hopelessly lost... My partner and I wish we had made the move years ago, as we now find ourselves at aged 46 and 47, with two children, wondering if we have missed the boat. My partner has an Aunt and cousins in Oz, but unfortunately they are in Wollongong, so that looks like a non starter. Partner was across last month on a visit to them, and he was 'offered a job', the guy said he would do the paperwork next day and he would start the following week, work for two years in the outback then qualify for citizenship, meaning we could go to Oz that way. I had my doubts, as it would have meant a life changing decision within hours, so said no. He came home with tail between his legs... My partner has a wealth of work experience, including HM Armed Force, but no formal qualifications. I have formal management qualifications, but looking at the skills assessment and the job titles available, the three job categories that I could fall under are assessed by three different assessing bodies. Looking at the new SOL, two of them are still there, but waiting on the ENSOL list may throw up the third. Should I just aim at getting one assessment with AIM? Talking through the possible move, our dream would be to be situated close to our relatives, but would really consider anywhere in Australia short term. Not sure though, that it is all just a dream that should really be put to bed once and for all, or whether this is worth pursuing. A question I have about visas - if we were fortunate enough to be successful in finding the right route - if it all hinged on, say, regional sponsorship on my abilities, would I have a set period in Oz to prove that I have managed to get a job, or would my partner be able to get a job without me having one? Any help, suggestions would be great.

    Management Consultants?

    Hi Guys. Sorry total newbie here and hope that this question hasn't already been answered (have done a search but not found anything as of yet ). Myself and my partner are both Business Consultants in the UK and want to emigrate to Australia but we're not sure on the best option when it comes to Visas. We don't really want to work for anyone else and haven't seen Business/Management Consultant on the SOL Schedule 1 although it does appear on the extended State Sponsored list but not sure what the implications of this are. Does this mean that we may be able to get state sponsorship and if so does that then mean we have to work for the state or is it a question of them sponsoring us and us either working for someone else when we arrive in Australia or setting up our own business? I've tried to read through the immi.gov.au site but to be honest it's just really confusing me at the moment so any help anyone could give would be great! Looking at the skill spoints for general skilled migration, I score 80 points with my partner scoring 65 (due to his age - 42) but obvioulsy if Business/Management Consultant isn't on the general SOL Schedule 1 is this immaterial? I've tried to get some advice from an Immigration Agent but they all want us to pay a retainer fee which to be honest at this stage we're not happy to do until we understand the options a little better. To be honest I'm a bit annoyed that the agents want money up front to give basic advice when it's likely we would go with them for the full schebang if they actually gave us the information we needed without the additional retainer requests, whatever happened to free initial advice!?! Like I said sorry if this has been asked before just haven't been able to find any info! Many Thanks :cute:
  12. I'm renting and I've been in my new place for a good few weeks now. When I did the inventory I noted a few things wrong with the place and handed this back to the property management company. When nothing happened, I handed in a written note (as required) to re-emphasize what's wrong with the place. Still nothing happened. I then handed another note about 2 weeks later and still nothing happened. Is there any course of action I can take? I don't want to do anything to jepordize any future applications but at the same time I want these items fixed FYI - the following need fixing: 1) Power socket hanging off the wall with exposed wires 2) Extractor fan not working (and there's always a little smoke when cooking and with this weather I really don't want to have all the window and doors open) 3) Intercom to the apartment doesn't work at all - not the buzzer to let me know someone's there nor the buzzer to let people up. I get the feeling that the management company has me by the short and curlies and won't do a thing until something actually goes wrong What would be my legal standpoint say if the sprinkler system goes off cos the extractor doesn't work? or a fire starts because of the exposed wires? Any ideas? Manny

    HNC Management Equivalent

    Hi, I'm hoping you can help me, I am currently studying a HNC Management course in Scotland and I was hoping if someone could tell me what the Australian equivalent is. Please Help :cute:
  16. hi me and my family are moving to perth in september, i am a carpenter in london and i am planning to take my tools over to perth, i have my vetassess skills assessment qualification to bring with me, but does anybody know if i will need to obtain anything else like a licence to work when i get there? i remember when we were in sydney back in 2001, to work on a building site you had to do a health and safety test, (blue card if memory serves me right), does this or anything similar apply to WA(perth). also i am just finishing a two year course, HNC in construction management, level 4 qualification, does anybody know how i would get this reconised as a australian qualification? cheers Terry
  17. Equity Partner Positions (Management Consulting) I made the move out to Australia (via career stop in Hong Kong) at the end of 2009 and am very settled in Brisbane and working successfully as an equity Partner in an Australian boutique Management Consultancy/Business Advisory firm. The company has capacity for new Equity Partners in Brisbane (where I'm based), Sydney & Melbourne. This may be of interest to folks with the right experience and background (as Oz is short in this area) so if you've got 15-20+ years industry experience at Senior Management/Executive Management/Director level running a business, business unit or with significant P&L responsibility, have a background and wealth of experience you think would be valuable to business owners in Australia then drop me a line at richard.moss@eborders.net or PM me. The roles involve management consulting/business advisory into privately held businesses with annual turnovers in the range of $2-200 million a year and working directly with the owners and shareholders - so you need to be confident, know your stuff, have the ability to do the work yourself (no juniors to delegate to here) and have an honest/ethical approach to our clients business it could be worth having a chat. To be clear - this is not a development role for someone, you've either got the experience or you haven't and if you have, its really interesting and rewarding work! Finally, there's no "hiring deadline" and no pressure applied so for anyone looking to emigrate and not sure exactly when, where, or if the visa will get approved (been there!!) this discussion will work around that. It’s about having the right people when the time is right. Interested? Drop me a line and we can chat, if you're still interested I'll give you all the details and connect you with the managing partner for another chat cheers, Richard. P.S. we have smaller offices in Adelaide and Perth but I'm not wholly convinced that would be a good move for this type of position where it’s better to be close to some critical mass of other people but if anyone is dead set on those tow city's happy to chat as well
  18. Can anyone help with info or tips about "Management Rights". As I understand it, you basically look after a development of houses, units or apartments and in exchange, get a home and an income. We should have our CPV by the end of 2011 and are looking into what options we might have job wise and we stumbled on this option on our recent visit to Oz. We are both in our 50s and are still very active. Any help would be greatly appreciated, both positive and negative.
  19. Hi all, I have a general enquiry about getting sponsorship for Hotel/Hospitality Manager. I am qualified as a Hotel manager and worked many years in this side of the industry but for the last number of years have been a Hospitality manager. My dilemma is that because I haven't been working as a Hotel Manager for the last number of years I don't qualify for a 176 as originally planned.:arghh: I am wondering is there anyone else out there who managed to secure employer sponsorship in this industry and if so how did you go about it? Am desperate to make the move and would consider any area of Australia, but if we had a choice we are torn between Adelaide and Melbourne. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks John.

  24. The AIM has just announced that effective immediately it is changing its criteria for management occupations to the following: Criteria for a Manager for the Purpose of Migration The Australian Institute of Management is contracted as an assessing authority by the Australian Government to assess senior management skills for applicants for the purpose of skilled migration to Australia. Managers are assessed against these criteria and not the functions of the general managerial occupations, as set out in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO). Guidelines are based on the level of work experience, training and qualifications achieved. To satisfy these requirements applicants must hold a senior management position and for your information the criteria used are as follows: Corporate General Manager [111211] A proven record of top management achievement over a continuous period of at least three (3) years in a position such as Chief Executive Officer, Managing Director, President, General Manager or equivalent position. These position titles infer that the applicant: · Holds or has held the most senior management position within the organisation · Is the owner of the business; or directly reports to the owner/s of the business, usually through a Board of Directors; or reports directly to the responsible political Minister/Secretary if the applicant works in the public sector; or is a senior management consultant providing advice to client organisations at Board or equivalent level; · Is wholly responsible for achieving the organisation’s financial and strategic outcomes; · Would normally have had a proven and successful experience in a functional area of management prior to being appointed to the top job; · Has the final decision making authority over a wide range of responsibilities through delegation to several subordinates who would be eligible for assessment as senior functional managers under the criteria outlined below; Sales and Marketing Manager [131112], Human Resource Manager [132311], Engineering Manager [133211], and Supply and Distribution Manager [133611] A proven record in a senior functional management position over a continuous period of at least three (3) years, requiring the delegation of authority to several other managers/supervisors who themselves hold positions requiring the delegation of work to several other subordinates in supervisory, technical or skilled positions. These position titles infer that the applicant: · Holds the most senior management position within the applicant’s functional area of responsibility within the organisation; · Reports directly to the owner/s of the business; or reports directly to the CEO/senior decision maker within the organisation; or reports directly to the Department Head if the applicant works within the public sector; or is a senior management consultant providing advice to client organisations at CEO or equivalent level; · Has the final decision making authority over his/her functional responsibilities plus additional authority through subordinate managers in a range of broader responsibilities such as strategy and long range planning, finance, administration and public relations; · Is wholly responsible for achieving his/her functional outcomes within the organisation; · Would normally have had a proven and successful experience in broad range of responsibilities in management prior to being appointed to the top functional job; For all of the above occupations including the Corporate General Manager, the years of experience may be reduced if the applicant has qualifications in management studies or business administration assessed as comparable to an Australian Bachelor, Post Graduate or Master degree, or in a discipline relevant to the field in which the manager is working. This applies where the qualification concerned has been completed immediately prior to, or within the relevant time frame of years of management experience being assessed. The Country Education Profiles prepared by the National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition are the basis for an educational assessment. The complexity and size of the organisation will influence the assessment. The larger the organisation, the greater would be the responsibilities of the senior managers. Applicants will normally require senior management experience across a diverse range of functional areas including managerial authority over subordinates who are also at a management level. A manager at a senior level would also have a high level of discretionary decision making authority. Senior managers tend to manage departments servicing the overall operations of the organisation and where delegation to several subordinate managers involved in specific but related functions is required. The critical components in applying these criteria are the breadth and depth of the applicant’s own managerial responsibilities and those of the subordinate managers reporting directly to the applicant. The issue is that the organisational chart shows that the applicant supervises a number of direct reporting managers. The criteria for recognition as having skills equivalent to that of a senior manager make it clear that the person must be responsible for a range of organisational functions and to have such responsibilities at a level which is concerned with strategy and policy across the whole organisation, and not just operations. Our assessment is based upon a review of an entire career history, but with an emphasis on the immediate past three (3) years, and satisfactory evidence is sought of managerial progression through increased authority and responsibility of each position thereby demonstrating a period of sustained success. Good luck to all who sail in her. Cheers, George Lombard
