  9. Another LAFHA question... Sorry to sound stupid but am I correct in assuming that someone on a 457 with an ongoing position who received some relocation money does not need to apply for LAFHA? I am not sure if I got that right but from what I read and understood so far LAFHA is only for people who do not have an ongoing position/do not intend to stay in Australia "forever"? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.:wubclub:
  10. We are looking for Packaging Operators in a Parma company, Perth NOR. Packaging of pharmaceutical products and working on a poduction line. Please contact me if you are interested.
  11. I may have struck lucky. The company I work for has offices in Sydney and having met up with the 2nd in command on our last trip over, he has recommended me for a position. Following a resource meeting 2 weeks ago, a position was identified for which they feel I am the right person to undertake. Question is what visa to apply for? High Commission in London seem to favour the 457 Temp Business Visa as it gives me 4 years and seems to be granted in a short time frame. Full ENS, by looking at the threads here, takes well in excess of 6 months on average which is a shame as the position is covered on the ENSOL. With 4years on a temporary visa, do I stand a good chance of successful application to become a permanent resident or should I hold out for the full 121? My OH (or better half ) also works for a company with Sydney offices so has a great chance of landing a position quickly. Just a shame Senior Estimator (Best Guesser) doesn't appear on any list. Advice from those with experience and knowledge of these routes would be brilliant if I could ask please?
  12. Hi, im a 32yr male, i work for the NHS Ambulance service back here in the UK as an Emergency Medical Technician, currently awaiting a paramedic conversion course but have been woooed by the opportunity to come to Perth and work for the WA St Johns Ambulance, i would be able to be converted to a Grade 2 Ambulance officer initially. I do hold 2 degrees and have spent time in HM Forces and as a police officer for West Mercia Constabulary, i meet the grading criteria/points score to allow me to apply to emigrate.Are there any other ex-UK Paramedics or IHCD EMT's here in Perth, i would love to know more about the differences in Pre Hospital care compared to the UK. Also i am loking for general advice from anybody regarding moving over here, the WA St.John would be paying for my VISA and associated costs, i would have to find somewhere to live and sort out a bank account, car etc...I am only applying for the position so far so have not yet been offered a position, any info at all about living over there would be of great benefit to myself. My cousing spent 3 years living in Oz but on the East coast and i do not know of anybody else who lives there... Thanks in advance Mark

    Protect your position!! – UK F/S Pensions

    I recently posted a link regarding the Lord Hutton report which laid out proposed changes to the UK private pension system. I attach the outlined Lord Hutton proposals again for information http://www.gad.gov.uk/Documents/Press%20Releases/2011/IPSPC-Lord_Hutton's_Final_Report.pdf Within the proposals is the age at which private pension benefits can be taken to increase in line with State Pension age (age 66 from 2018 / age 67 from 2034 / age 68 from 2044) Probably the biggest news on this report was the proposed changes to Final Salary scheme pensions whereby benefits should be based on a ‘Career Average salary as opposed to ‘Final Salary’. It looks as though these changes have been accepted by the Chancellor. This could mean that the actual pension someone receives from the proposed ‘Career Average Salary’ basis as opposed to the ‘Final Salary’ basis will be much less. For deferred members that have already accrued pension benefits it seems as though these benefits will be protected at this stage and the final salary basis will still apply. Let’s hope for them that this remains the case as these people have already seen reductions in their benefits due to the recent changes in accrual from Retail Price Index (RPI) to Consumer Price Index (CPI). However the potential downside to all of this will be that due to these changes ‘Transfer Values’ are likely to decrease for people looking to transfer their pensions across to Australia. When the change from RPI to CPI was implemented transfers values reduced by around 20%, the new changes could also have similar effects. It is crucial that a transfer from a Final Salary scheme is not done based on these proposed changes as there are many other factors that will also play a part in the decision but you should also take these proposed changes seriously if you feel that you want to consider a transfer as it may be worth acting sooner rather than later. Protect your position – There are a number of ways that people may be able to protect their current transfer value before they potentially reduce again. Within these options it may also be possible to keep your money in Pounds so that you are not transferring into Dollars (if you believe that the exchange rate will pick up again in favour of the Pound).

  15. Hi we lodged our visa 21 months ago and not heard anything back. We are applying for skilled migration 175. Would love to hear from anyone in the same situation. Feel like our life as been on hold and get a bit fed up not knowing whats going to happen either way. Thanks x

  17. Hi everyone, I'm new on the forum :hug: We (my soon to be wife and myself) are currently in South Africa and we would like to go over to Australia (maybe NZ.) I have a cousin in Perth and they have been there for about 5 years now. They just love it there. I have completed my Diploma in IT - Business Applications and I have about 5 years working experience in IT but mainly I would say my skill is Database Developer/Administrator and Computer Programming. I can apply for my General Skilled Migration Visa (subclass 175) but the problem is that it will take anything from 2 - 3 years :frown: I'm looking for a sponsorship position that can help me. I not 100% sure how everything on it works like if I may apply for other positions when I'm there and how long the visa is valid. I don't want to relocate and come back to SA. I want to be an Australian citizen and learn your culture because I'm not feeling SA's :sad: I like (actually love) IT and I know I can learn so much more in Australia because it's just more advance there. I also believe it's more safe to bring up my child one day. I don't mind paying the visa but I do mind waiting. So even if I get a sponsorship and I have to pay (Don't know if that is allowed?) then it's fine because it wouldn't take as long. I hope someone here can help me out or point me into the right direction Thanks

  19. Well! It's crunch time. Here goes nothing... Some of you might recognise my presence around these quarters over the past couple of years, I'm not new here by any means. Some of us have had a rough time getting a visa and some of us haven't. I'm 17 years old. I'll turn 18 this July. I'm doing my A Level exams this June. I've applied to 5 Universities, all of which gave me offers. My first was received within 3 days of sending my application off! I've accepted an offer to study IT in Southampton Solent starting September 2010. We were granted a visa in May 2009 on my mum's job as a nurse with 20 something years experience. Now we're trying to sell a house, and it's not going that well. My dad is being incredibly defeatist about the whole situation (as always, exaggeration or defeatist attitude in pocket!!) I however, don't want to give up that easily! Like I've said, I'm nearly 18. What sets me apart from everyone else I know is that I don't want to go to University in September. I don't want to keep my part-time job and transfer to the branch nearest my intended University. I want to go on an adventure. I want to live my dream of moving to Australia. I have a red booklet and a piece of paper that says "yes, you can" I want to get out in the world and prove my worth as a person. I want to go to University. I've visited Griffith (it's in Queensland for those of you not familiar with it) to study IT and hopefully, eventually become a teacher. I've talked to my tutor in College about it. I've got family already in Australia. I wouldn't mind if I had to do something like work full time for a while to be able to live and study...then carry on living! I might have a place to stay with them if I'm lucky. I see no reason why I can't do it. I'm so close to being 18, and this is what I want to do with my life. That's not the full story though... I have tried to talk to my parents about it. But I haven't been able to get through to them about it. So I've come here asking for some advice. I can understand that they both want to go and that if they can't, they're losing their son there. And they worry (a lot) about me. I understand. I'm not doing it in spite of anyone, to be horrible and they know because they had to make that decision themselves to apply for and obtain a visa... and to put a house up for sale with emigrating as their primary objective. So I know what they're on about. But I think, now, I'm so close to being 18, I've got to make that decision for myself. And that's what I'd like to do. I get held back by family and other people a lot. And now I really want to do something and I know it's for good reasons, with the political state in uncertainty and the economy in tatters... University places vanishing into thin air, my dreams of doing what I want to do in England are fast evaporating. What do we think I should do? And more importantly how should I go about it?! HELP? :unsure: :notworthy:
