  1. Hi Im moving to Melbourne in the next few weeks and may even have a job interview sorted for when I get there with a company called ALCOIL but I could really do with some advice on how hard it is to acquire my ROOF plumbing licence. I've been sheeting for 9 years here in the UK and I presume it is very similar type of work in Australia but could really do with a chat with any UK SHEETERS that have made the move and got there ROOF plumbing licence. Just some basic questions on what they look for and how hard it is to get licenced as a ROOF plumber in Oz. Il be forever grateful for any advice, please message me if you fit the bill. thanks Mark:wacko:

    Re: Roofer - NVQ certificate 2/3

    Hi there, Im just wondering if there are any other roofers out there that are applying/applied for a NVQ certificate 2/3 recently in order to emigrate? My husband is just applying now, as we have been advised by 2 respectable migration agents that with the new guidelines being set out by the 'Tra' on September 1st that this should be a suitable certification to have. So it would be great to hear from others in the same/similair situation. Kelly & Jay. :smile:

    Brickie, Roofer or Plasterer...which one??

    Hello, I'm new to this website. I'm so glad I came across it though. We are at the early "should we" or "shouldn't we" stage and have been looking at going to Perth. My husband is a General Builder, self employed for the last 10 years. Before that he was a glass cutter for over 10 years. We were planning on moving to Perth and him doing full time bricklaying but since reading some threads on here today I have discovered that Brickies are being laid off. My OH also does roofing and plastering and now I'm wondering if it would be better to focus on these areas of work instead. Does anyone know the potential salaries for roofing or plastering and does anyone know if there is any demand? On a different note.....we are looking at the suburbs between Rockingham and Mandurah. We wont be bringing vast amounts of money over so we want to try and get a nice house for no more than 260000 AUSD. I'm worried though that cheap housing means dodgy districts with high crime. Can anyone give me advice on this area? We have two children coming out with us aged 10 and 7 and my 19 year old is considering joining us later so we need to be somewhere with stuff to do for the kids. Love the website and I'm looking forward to your responses.

    Roofer going to WA

    Hello there WA, we are pretty much set on WA, as it ticks all the boxes. I may only be able to get into OZ on am employment visa, so there has to be lots of jobs on offer for me to have a chance of getting in. Will this be a problem for me? As after doing my own research for roofing jobs, there are quite a lot, but not many in WA. unless Im looking in the wrong place. Please advise if you can.

    Roofer's any info

    Hi is anyone aware of how the industry is for roofers, my partner is a roofer and we are looking to move to Oz possibly Brisbane and was hoping someone out there might have some info.... I am myself a Personal Assistant in the Police but can also do the girlie things like manicurist and nail technician plus hairdressing.. would love to hear from someone... K x :v_SPIN:
  16. Now i really am puzzled cos i'm on the Modl, but iv'e just gone through the Oz yellow pages and can't find any Roof tiling / slating companies in it. Now is it the fact that it's really expensive there, or is there no call for it as so much of the housing is done in metal an something called colour bond or do they just paint over it like a lot of them advertise. Or do i go completely forget my trade an become a postie, like someone else has said he knew, who was a qualified electrician ( thats at least 5 years ) could'nt find work an is now working as a postie. Is there any roofers already in Oz that may be able to help on this. Yours, A Concerned Professional Roofer. Mr KP Nut.
  17. We are thinking of moving to Australia, and were wondering how easy it would be to get a job. I am an Administrator/multi tasker with experience doing legal secreterial work and a bit of IT too. My boyfriend is a roofer/roof line installer, no qualifications but has 6 years experience and is excellent in his trade. Would we get jobs easily? Where would the best place in Australia be for us to move to? I want to be close to the beach but not caught up in the rat race of living in a city....been there, done that, couldn't do it again. Want to move to Aus for an easier pace of life. I am 25 and Adz is 31, therefore we wouldn't want to be in the sticks with nothing to do either! Can anyone advise us at all? I have looked at a lot of sights and brochures and just seem to be more confused by the minute! Help! :confused:

    Roofer coming to Melbourne

    I have just sent my application for my visa I have been assessed by the TRA and has been accepted but would like to know if this is sufficient for me to gain employment once in Australia. Or will I have to have further tests, my classification is Roof Tiler and Slater. And how do I find out about the safety card that I have to have. If anyone can help please let me know. Thanks
