Hi all I was hoping someone could give me some advice! I'm an electrical fitter that works in substations and would love to emigrate to perth or Brisbane and surrounding areas. For some reason cable jointer and overhead lines are listed under electrical distribution tradespeople on the ANZSCO website but my job is not. To get a 190 visa i would need to get my skills swapped over to aussie qualifications, the agent i spoke to said i would have to fiddle it a little bit and try to go via the electrician (general) category. This job is quite abit different from what i do. The fees for this whole process are alot of money and I'm abit worried i will struggle passing an assessment for a job i don't do, plus i will have to get experience once I move to oz including studying oz electricity regs. Who's going to employ me for something I don't have experience or qualifications in!!??Is there anyone who has been in this position and got any advice please? It seems really crazy because my job is advertised by electricity distribution companies in Australia and the description of what I do is on the ANZSCO site but under cable jointer instead of under my trade which doesn't seem to be recognised
RemyLondon posted a topic in Careers and VacanciesHi There, I am 32 years old and work in the power transmission industry here in the UK. I currently work for National Grid as a Substation Engineer, but was recently granted Australian Visa and am looking to relocate. Can some please advise me of companies in Melbourne that hire people in my skill? Or is there someone who has work in the Utility sector here in the UK and has moved there, and managed to secure a job. Many thanks in advance
