  1. Hello all, I've just returned to Brisbane, after training as a teacher in the UK. I spent 2 years there and nearly ended up staying, but saw the light and returned to Brissie - just in time for the floods! I've always found the Aussies to be a friendly bunch but conversationally a bit hard going, as my knowledge of big engines, AFL and fishing is somewhat limited! I never thought about looking for like-minded Brits before, who might be up for a few beers and a bit of banter, as well as sharing costs of the occasional weekend trip down to the 'Goldie' or up the 'Sunny'. I like a bit of surfing every now and then, although as soon as I try and stand up you can tell immediately that I'm a Pom! :-o Any information on regular meet-ups in the area would also be appreciated. Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Matt.
  2. I'm a sports therapist qualified to both BSc and MSc standard in UK sports therapy, currently running regional sports injury clinic in the North East of UK. I have approx 15 years experience in diagnosing, treating and rehabilitation sports and musculoskeletal injuries, specialising in rugby union where I have worked for 19 years as masseuse and therapist. I also have University lecturing experience and would also be interested in teaching sports therapy or related courses. Will consider any part of Australia provided that the hours and salary are acceptable. Please drop me a line if you have any vacancies!
  3. Just relocated from Sydney to Perth to commence employment-F.I.F.O 3/1 roster and seek accommodation-something to call home. Given up with Estate Agents, it's a total scam. If anyone out there can help, feel free to drop me a line!
  4. Hi All, I’m moving to Melbourne in a few weeks with work yet as i have never been to the city i don’t know where i should live. i am a 25 year old male looking to live in the city but i don’t know where the best locations are. Luckily my company will be providing me with accommodation - i just need to let them where! Can anyone give me some advice?? ...as a little background I’m looking to be in a lively part of town, close to restaurants and easy access to the city centre. Preferably towards the east as I will be commuting out of town to Mount Waverley everyday. i don’t mind up to an hours commute though for a better location. If I can be near the water that would also be a bonus but I’m really just looking for a part of town with a good atmosphere and good reputation, so hopefully a nicer part of the city. Any ideas??? Cheers, Jack
  5. Hi all. This is my first time on this forum, well first time on any to be honest, so unsure what to do, but here goes. Myself and my family are thinking about moving to NZ. I am currently a prison officer, so I would be looking at jobs in the correctional facilities. My wife has been a local government worker all her life council tax/housing. I may have sorted a job for myself, but I am worried that when we get out there she wont be able to find work. We are thinking of moving to either Wellington or the Hawks Bay area. Any info on these areas would be great, Hawks bay would be ideal for us. Would just like to ask, whats the weather like over there, OH seems to think its just like the U.K, dull, damp and miserable, is she right. I have read a few threads on here and things look good/bad in NZ compared to the U.K. No jobs in NZ, lots of drink driving, locals very unfriendly, price of food/ housing higher than the U.K wages lower, less leave, god I am going on a bit... If I had a job at say $50k a year and a deposit of $163k would i get a decent house. What are the mortgage rates like monthly payments on a house say for $150k. I have gone on long enough and I apologize if all I have done is ask question, I just need to be sure for myself and my families sake that its the right move for us all. Many thanks and hope you all can help/advise. All the best petemel &( ickle charlie)
  6. Hi, my husband has a time served apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and has his HNC certificate. We are hoping to move to Perth in October of this year. We wondered if anyone has any contacts which would hopefully lead to him acquiring a job, he would consider flying to the mines. Hope you can help. x

  14. Hey Gday mates arrived in Newcastle a few weeks ago and the whole experience so far is not what I expected. I thought I was going to love Newcastle and the Aussies. Have been out and about with hubbie shaol bay etc and currently living in Merewether (rental) and love the beaches. But there does not seem to be many jobs the main high street is run down and it seems like im living in 70's aussies are way behind the uk with banking fashion etc.... Hubbie has started a job in Maitland which he is plodding on with at mo, and I have had a few trials for jobs but not what I wanted. one being telesales (had to escape after 1 1/2 hours and the other being a coffee shop but was thrown in the deep end on a busy day and told I would be paid on day but wasnt, all fun and games!! Ideally I want day shifts during the week (admin role) I could maybe have a coffee shop job but want more. I worked for a local council in my previous job- business support officer. If anyone in Newcastle knows of any jobs going please let me know. Also if any of you guys fancy meeting up for a toohies please let me know my hubbie and I would love to meet some likeminded people. :huh: Sorry to rabbit on.... bye for now-Kirstie x
  15. Hi All My husband and I have just moved to Perth and are feeling a bit lonely having only each other to talk too! for the sake of our marriage, we really got to get out and about and meet new people so if you fancy meeting up for coffee, lunch or a BBQ, let me know! my other half likes golfing and I like to go for walks on Burns or if I am feeling energetic, sometimes go jogging. we also fancy taking up kitesurfing so get in touch if we sound like we'd get on! PS this feels really sad, feel like I am selling myself on a personal ad!!!

    Plumber seeks advice

    Hi Gill, my names Nick and im a plumber just about to send of my Vetasess, providing i get the paper based assessment passed then i intend to carry on with the practical asessment. Hopefully if i pass that then i am not to sure what to do, currently i do not have an migration agent and have been looking to try a 175 visa. My wife and i would like to go to Queensland as we have been on our honeymoon and my wife worked on the Whitsunday islands yeras ago. However reading all the advice from many experienced people as yourself, should we get a migration agent and how do can i find out if my Job,general plumber is on the SS list for a state or on the CSL which im not sure how to check. As a newbie all i can concentrate on at the Moment is the Vetasess test and your advice to Christigi seemed fantastic, Any pointers would be great. Thank you Nick and sez.
  19. Hey there, Im new here so sorry as this will sound very amateur-ish!!! :err: I am a 22 y/o male who has recently completed a NVQ level 2 in Motor Mechanics at college.. From past experiences in my teens, being in Tasmania was the best place for me in the world, I would love to migrate basically, I have my heart set! I have family friends currently living in Hobart but im just unsure as to what I should maybe do here on into the future as far as experience I should build up or any advice really on further qualifications I may need to gain, even visas that would be particularly ideal for my situation! Like I say, im going at it a bit blind atm, Im only 22 and just need some positive guidance really, much appreciated! :notworthy: Thank you in advance for any responses, regards!
  20. Hi all, I'm hoping someone may have found themselves in a similar position and might be able to help me. I 'm 28 and ACCA part qualified, completed 8 of 14 exams and have 8 years of experience, I know Accountants is on the list of occupations in demand, but, im obviously not qualified. I would like to obtain a long term business sponsorship visa, the 457, does anyone think there is scope for that considering my position? I fully intend to continue my studies whilst in Australia and would be qualified by the end of 2010 and therefore be in a position to apply for a permanent visa. I would also consider a working holiday visa as I understand you can obtain business sponsorship whilst in the country and considering my position would I actually stand more of a chance this way than applying for a 457 visa in the UK? I hope I've made sense. Your advise is greatly appreciated.

And anywhere else we can think of. Unfortunetly Sydney is the furthest I am ale to travel due to funds and work. I'm all on my own and can only entertain (and talk to myself) for so long. So if there is a likeminded person out there we can go and explore together. Hayley
