    Australian Employment Rises

    The Turnbull government and Reserve Bank can breathe a sigh of relief heading into the long Easter weekend after new figures showed the number of people employed soared above the 12 million-mark for the first time. The near-61,000 rise in employment in March was three times the number economists were expecting. It may revive the spirits of consumers in time for one the busiest weekends of the year for retailers, with confidence having been in steady decline since the beginning of 2017. "Australians are encouraged ... they are out there putting up their hands and saying 'I'm ready, willing and able to work," Employment Minister Michaelia Cash told reporters in Perth on Thursday. Total employment grew by 60,900 in March after the figure for February was revised up to reflect a 2800 increase, from a previously recorded decline. The March result included a 74,500 increase in full-time work, partly offset by a 13,600 decline in part-time jobs. However, with the work participation rate rising as more people sought a job, the unemployment rate remained steady at 5.9 per cent - the highest level in more than a year. "While RBA officials will take heart from the better tone of the March data, the fact that last month's pop in the jobless rate is now 'locked in' is likely to be a concern," JP Morgan economist Tom Kennedy said. Labor frontbencher Ed Husic said an unemployment rate of 5.9 per cent was as bad as it got during the worst of the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. He said the government needed a jobs plan beyond a tax cut for big business and cuts to penalty rates for ordinary workers. "Where is their jobs plan, I can't find it," Labor's acting employment spokesman told reporters in Sydney. However, Senator Cash said three million small businesses in Australia employing in excess of six million Australians will now get a tax cut under the government's tax plan. "All of the small business owners I spoke to this week look forward reinvesting that additional money back into their business," she said. The government secured parliamentary support for part of its 10-year business tax reduction plan earlier this month, which starts with an immediate tax cut to 27.5 per cent for businesses with a $10 million turnover. Most of these firms had paid a rate of 30 per cent, apart from those with a turnover of $2 million which paid 28.5 per cent.
  2. Hello everyone - I have been trying for months to find any Renal Dialysis Technician jobs advertised on job sites and I am also struggling to find recruitment companies who specialise in this field - Does anyone have any advice or can anyone point me in the right direction. We don't mind where in Australia the job is based. Thankyou for any help :biggrin:
  3. Hi, I was lucky enough to have made the move to Canberra just over 2 years ago and haven't looked back. I know things have been a bit tough in the job market recently, and wanted to share a couple of opportunities for Professional Accountants with CA/CPA/CIMA qualifications. Ideally you will have experience within a large and complex commercial entity. Please PM me if you are interested.
  4. Hi all, I'm in the early stages of planning to relocate long term with young family to Oz and need to investigate my employment options so I know what/where we can afford. I work as a Civil/Structural Technician on all sorts of construction projects, using AutoCAD to produce 2D/3D construction information/drawings/schedules for building sub/superstructures in steelwork, concrete (inc. RC detailing) masonry, timber - all the usual suspects including piling works, drainage, externals, retaining walls and the like. I worked for 7 years as permanent employee but went freelance in 04 and now have my own Ltd. company in the UK, currently working, via an specialist structural recruitment co, for a consulting engineering firm called Buro Happold. Is there anyone around here who might be able to advise me on the following matters: Any significant differences between UK & Oz structural design & construction technology & practices? Permanent - v - Contract ? Is there a market for freelancers in this field, and do they do the ltd. company thing like we do in the UK or are the tax rules different? Whether to bother with the agencies or approach firms directly Availability of work ? (we're considering Brisbane mainly but are openminded) Salary expectations for both perm & contract roles My wife (OH?) and I also have hundreds of other questions but this probably isn't the right place for them. Any advice at all on any of the above would be much appreciated If you got this far, thanks for reading! Dan

    Cairns or Gold Coast???

    G'day peoples. :em3600: I was born in Perth but have spent most of my life in England. I am returning to Australia this year with my husband and my son. Thing is, we can't decide between Cairns (Which looks simply stunning and never gets cold) and the Gold Coast (which may have more opportunities and things to do for teens). Any pros and cons on either place please...? :biggrin: Many thanks Chantel

  12. Hello, My husband and I will be moving to Australia next August (2012). We are on a permanent resident visa and would now like to get a job as soon as possible. I'm an HR manager of 31 years old with more than 7 years experience and extensive exposure to Industrial relations (International). Currently working in the Packaging Industry, previously in the Automotive Industry. Our first intention is to go to Sydney, however, we would be happy to go anywhere in Australia where we could bothe get a job (Husband is IT consultant, specialised in Oracle) Anyone in the field has done the move? I'm just starting looking around.... wondering if it makes sense to have my skills assessed to "prove" to Australian employers my experience in the field. Wondering if it makes sense to go to law school to grasp the main points of Australian labor law... but feeling the cost very expensive for uncertain result If you had any advice on where to start, that would be muche appreciated! Thanks a lot!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm new to this site. I am an engineer currently working for a contracting company in Ireland with 10 years behind me mechanical background. Mech installations overseeing works, on site co-ordination meetings that kind of lovely stuff! Seriously thinking of moving over there for a few years with my partner. What part of Oz would anyone recomend? Any good websites recomended or agencys? What kind of salary should I be looking for?
  14. :biggrin: Hi Everyone Can anybody help? I am looking at moving out to Australia ASAP (Perth) with my family but I am looking for a sponsor to help me migrate. I am a fully qualified electrician by trade but have been working and am still currently working as an electrical engineer / project manager within the building services industry and have been for the past 5 years +, the issue I have is that I do not have a degree in engineering or project management and because I have not been on the tools for the last 12 months I cannot do the vetassess. I do want to study for my degree but I want to do this in Australia as it will take another 3 years before I can apply for migration if I study for my degree here in England. I know that it is a long shot but I have friends and family that currently live out in Perth and they have advised that there could be some opportunities coming up for sponsorship due to recent government announcements. If anybody has any info or may be able to point me in the right direction than it would be most appreciated. Thanks for reading.

  18. Hello, I am still in the process of moving to Oz with my partner and my son, 9 year old. I will be on sponsored work visa and on 55k salary. ( based on my research it might be a bit low for Sydney - but depends if my partner can get work ). My question is tied into the last sentence... if my family comes with me, will my partner be allow to work? His current job title is Sales Representative ( technical products - health and safety matting products to commercial buildings) which we noticed is on demand occupation list on Australian Government website. Also we would like to be close to Sydney but at the same time in a nice area with good schools and shopping centres. Can anyone please suggest good suburbs outside Sydney? Thanks
  19. I have recently moved to Sydney on a permanent spousal Visa and am looking for a mental health Nursing assistant post here. I have a year's experience working with dementia patients and more recently working 15 months with adolescents in an inpatient psychiatric unit in London. I have Graduate Diploma in Psychology and am a member of the British Psychological Society. My intention is to train as a mental health nurse within the next year or so. Ideally I want to work with adolescents as I was previously, but am not sure where to look. I am not sure how widely employed nursing assistants are here. Basically any information would be helpful. Should I approach some of the private clinics directly or are most posts filled through agencies? Thanks James

    Missed Opportunities.

    Morning/Evening All. Just a quick one, :yes:. We all live fairly active and busy lives, and often to look back is not right for us, we have to live in the present I guess, and to some degree look forward, BUT. Have you ever looked back at your life and wondered, 'If Only I Had Taken That Opportunity'. Maybe an opportunity missed, purposefully avoided, circumstance didn't allow you to take it, etc. There are very, very, few things in life I regret, I have for the most part really enjoyed my time, and I can only think of one instance where I wished that I had taken an opportunity, but unforeseen circumstances stopped me. So have you at any point kicked yourself for something that you missed in your past?. Cheers Tony.:wink:

  24. Hi, I would like to seek some advice and opinions from the forumers here. I am currently residing in Singapore, mid 30s, and is contemplating taking up MBA to enhance my career prospects. Due to family and work commitments, I am leaning towards taking an online MBA or Distance learning MBA. At the same time, I am also exploring the possibility to work in Australia in 2 years times. The situation is, I am torn between doing a 1) DL MBA from UK (better reputation and accreditations, comparatively cheaper) 2) online MBA from Australia (> expensive and less reputable) However, option could (I am not too sure about this, hence could), potentially open me up to job opportunities in Australia, due to: a) it's a Australia MBA and I intend to move to Australia and b) I could potentially find more contacts and job opportunities when I am in Australia for my capstone module. I am not sure how much truth does my assumptions hold, hence would like to seek some opinion and advice. Thanks in advance.
  25. Hi there, My husband and I are hoping to move to Australia on a Skilled Permanent Visa. I'm 29 and a Secondary School Teacher (teaching English), and my husband is 33 and a Plumbing and Heating Engineer. Our initial idea was to go to Brisbane/Sunshine Coast, but we've heard that there are better job opportunities in Perth. At the moment we're at the very beginning of the process, so we're checking out Migration Agents as that seems to be the way to go. However, we do have a few questions, and we'd really appreciate your advice. OK, here we go: Would anyone recommend a particular Migration Agent/Company? Does anyone know what the job prospects are like in Western Australia and Queensland respectively? (We're trying to work out which of us would be the best person to be the primary applicant as well as where we should emigrate to). Does anyone have any contacts in the teaching profession as well as the plumbing and heating industry in WA or Brisbane/Sunshine Coast? The medicals - roughly how far into the process are you required to complete these? Obviously we'd rather not spend lots of money with the Migration Agency and then fail the medical. Does anyone know what sorts of things they are looking for? Think that's about it (for now at least!), we'd really appreciate any advice anyone could give us. We want to get the application process started as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your help, Emma and Scott
