  2. Hi guys! My husband and I, along with our 2 year old daughter are considering moving to Sydney. We currently live in a nice cottage in Mumbai, but would really give up everything if it would mean a better education and future for our little girl. and that's the tough decision we have to make right now. Will we have enough money to give her a comfortable life in Australia? My husband is getting offered a yearly salary of AUD 100,000. + super, before taxes. The company is giving my husband a PR visa. Please forgive my naivete, but i needed help understanding a few things: 1 - Is this a good enough wage to live comfortably in Sydney? I will need to be at home with the baby for awhile till she goes to school or we can afford daycare maybe. 2 - Would a Permanent Resident visa for my husband include the family? 3 - How much do utilities cost per month? water, gas, electricity, rent? (approx) We are really thinking very hard about this decision as we will have to use all our savings to go to Australia and make it work. So as you can imagine, we are so stressed out to make the right decision. Your advice and input will definitely help me! Thanks so much! warm regards from Mumbai.
  3. Hi Guys, I'm Matt and new to this site. I'm 28 and at a point in my life where a change is necessary and I've decided to take the plunge and do something I have always wanted to to and emigrate to Australia. I have worked around SE Asia and the be based in a fabulous country like Australia and have the flexibility to holiday in SE Asia seems like heaven to me. I work in a Sales role for a large international Valve and Instrumentation comany that works heavily in the Oil and Gas industry and there is a position avaliable to me in Perth. The company is paying for my Visa and initial travel but thats as far as it goes and this is not a secondment - it is a permenant posisition so no relocation help etc. A guy from my hometown in Liverpool is taking over the business as Director and he would like me to work with him in Sales. I've been offered a 1st year basic of 65k but the OTE with commission should be 110-130k. There is also a car allowance of 20k on my salary to purchase my own vehicle for company use (the company at present own their employees company cars but are keen to get away from this due to fees and taxes involved for the company so are offereing the 20k subsidy). I am looking to move in March 2014 and I'm coming over on my own and I am single guy. My first obvious question is, is this a comfortable wage? I only have around £6k in the bank to assist with rental bonds etc and no other assets. I currently earn around £55k + car (28k salasry + commission) in the UK per year which gives me a nice life with a few holidays a year. I know there is the 2.5 x rule but at present a lot of my money goes on drinking out in the local pub which is something I am keen to stray away from in Aus as there will be a lot more I can spend my time and money on. To me the move is more than money and mainly around lifestyle but obviously money is very important. My next question to get me started is around nice places to live. I do not want to be right in the city but would like to have good access to it including nice resturaunts and some nightlife so I can meet new people. I know this is pretty vague but any suggestions are very welcome which will allow me to embark on my research a little further. I am going to have to rent fully furnished and would like some outside space for bbqs with 2 or more bedrooms. You answers are very much appreciated - I will be back on for a lot more help in the coming months so I will keep this forum ticking along with questions don't worry I look forward to hearing from you all. Thanks, Matt
  4. Hi everyone, I am given the opportunity to work in Gladstone as electrical engineer for managing projects in a plant. I have visited the place few days ago and love the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. My plan would be to move with my wife and our 2 children (7 and 9 years old). I have received a job offer based on a 457 Visa which the company would pay. The company would also pay the relocation cost as follow: - Shipment from Europe - Travel for the whole family in economy flight - One time allowance for the settlement, corresponding to one month salary - 1 month hotel accomodation The salary would be: Base salary before tax: 142'200.- Superannuation : 12'800.- Gladstone booming factor : 6850.- Total: 161'850.- No car allowance Medical insurance for one year only, then at our charge. Is that a good offer for a 40 year old engineer? Will I be able to save some money once the monthly paiment done? Thanks a lot for your support

    carpenter's wage

    Hi, im lookin to move to oz, i am a fully qualified carpentry (NVQ Level 3) i have a small business in the uk. I cover all aspects of carpentry. I was wondering how much i could expect to earn? also is there much carpentry work in oz at the moment?
  14. Hi All, I have just had an email from my potential employer/sponsor 457. He has stated that the Australian Goverment sets the wage that an employer pays a worker on a 457 visa, if this is true then the figure he has told me is far to low for me to survive & not what I originally thought I would be earning:no:. I thought the goverment only states a minimum wage. Help please
  15. Hello, My wife and I are seriously considering moving to Brisbane as my wife has a large family out there. My main question is what is the average wage for Joiners and Mental health nurses? Thanks!
  16. Hi All WA'ers, I have had a job offer 457 in wembley, but I understand that this is an expensive area to live in or near. Please help! is there anywhere within 1hours commute (public transport) where myself,wife & 3 kids age 10,8 & 4 can afford to live?? my wage offer is $1200 pw before stoppages the wife could work part time during school hours she has nvqs in childcare. We are from stoke-on-trent so don't live in a posh place, but it is no way the worst either. We live a comfortable yet simple life here so I won't move to an area that is not tidy etc. the size of house in WA is not important to us but good schools, area, amminaties are. A short travel time to beach would be a big bonus. Hope you can give me some suburbs I can researh. Many thanks cobbler

    The minimum wage in oz

    Just wondering what the minimum wage is in Australia. If anyone is care-giving i would be interested in what the hourly rate for that is to. I am planning to be working in perth
  20. I'm was just reading another thread where someone was asking the usual 'can we survive on 50k' question and I just wondered if people thought there were certain places where your money may go further? I presume Sydney won't be one of them. For example, we chose Melbourne over Perth because we though our money may go further there with them having Aldi and Costco. It all helps save the $$ doesn't it? And as a family who will be earning that amount of money (or thereabouts) I'm interested :wacko:
  21. Hi everyone, it is me again :smile: I have been online and I am trying to work out what the national minimum wage is here in Oz but there seems to be a lot of different sites with additional information which changes things site to site as well as it appears state to state! In England it was just simple: You have to get paid at least this amount per hour, through the whole of England, changing only when you got to a certain age when the minimum wage went up...Is it as simple as that here in Oz? I am 22 years old, and living in Western Australia - can anybody let me know what the minimum wage is for me, if possible? And is there another age bracket above my age at which the minimum wage goes up? Thanks guys!! xx
  22. I have been lurking around the forums for a great deal of time and finally decided to join so I could take part in the many discussions posted on the boards. I am pretty confused about what I should be looking at as far as wages go. Here in the US I am the "phone man". I work for AT&T and my job includes installation and repair of phone service as well as high speed internet installation and repair. I work in both residence and business environments. I work out doors climbing telephone poles and working underground etc. Here in the US I am run of the mill middle class. I currently receive $29/hr for work. What I am trying to figure out is what I could expect to make if I was able to find a job like I do now. I know everything is a bit more expensive but I need to figure out what I am looking at. I know this is a very broad statement but I am just looking for a little info to get me moving. Thank you, Brad

  24. Hi Hubby has a job on Sunshine coast as Sous chef, not sure what the salary is round here?? Has been on $18.80 an hour, casual, but been offered $44,000 per annum + 4 weeks hols, permanent (works out the same on a 45 hour week, so not really a pay rise!!). Just more security I spose & a regular wage. Sounds a bit low for sous chef or is that a normal QLD wage?? Any USEFUL advice would be great thanks. Caroline :skeptical:
  25. I have a job offer, a pay package & 457 sponsorship possible, with a company in wembley, Perth (North of the river), But I think the hourly rate is very low. So what would be an acceptable hourly rate of pay for a semi skilled worker in this area? I need some info because the employer is expecting me to reply to his pay offer & I need my facts right before contact is made. Thanks cobbler
