    Roofing work ~ NOR ~ WA

    My hubby is a roofer with 15 years experience (currently owns his own business in the UK) When we move to Perth (NOR) later this year he is looking to work for someone else :yes: We would love to know who are the best companies to get in touch with? :unsure: Or would it be a case of looking for vacancys in the newspaper/websites? Would anyone be able to suggest the amount of earnings he may be looking at getting? :wideeyed: And anything else we should know? There seems to be alot of building work going on NOR, so we are hopefull that work wont be too much of a problem
  3.

  4. Hi All, What would be the best tactics for a couple of blokes looking for roofing & plastering work in WA. To be honest we dont have work visas but are hoping to find sponsors when we arrive in a couple of weeks time. Do you think its realistic/possible to do it this way? Were both too old to get WHVs so need to find sponsors. It sounds like there is plenty of work just at the moment & we dont mind moving around in order to find work. I believe there is plenty of work in the Karatha/Port Hedland area. Anyone have experience of working up around there? Many thanks....Smigs....

  6. Hello all If all goes well, I should hopefully be in South Australia within the next 6 - 18 months, as a roof slater/tiler, my question is to any British/Australian roofers who have worked in both countries, are both trades similar in both nations? i.e do both use the same types of slates/tiles, use grp/lead in valleys, use lead on abutments,etc or is it totally different, or are there just a few differences?, if anyone has any knowledge about any of the above it would be greatly appreciated. p.s merry christmas to all and happy new year

    Roofing Advice - Documents

    Hi... I am just in the process of filling in the documents to ensure we have enough to complete our TRA and am worried about the amount of 'education' information they ask for, (The forms we are completing are the pre-skills assessment from Go Matilda) Glyn never attended any colleges to obtain his role as a roofer (sheeting and cladding or in Oz Roof Plumber), it has all been done as on the job and never completed an apprenticeship either... He has later since gained an NVQ 2 and 3 in the trade plus other licences such as cherry picker, scissor lift, cscs card etc but after looking at the forms am worried that we will fail on the education side... Has anyone else out there gained on the job experience in a trade and been successful ??? Thanks xxx :unsure:
