HGV Driver looking for work in Oz

Recommended Posts

Guest pitch70

Over 3 years HGV experience on artics in UK, looking to make the move to Oz but job is not on the SSL list or Sol List, so where can i start?

I also have 20 years in the parcel delivery industry, if that helps.


Only me and the wife to worry about, but cant seem to get enough points to get over there.

Anyone have any idea of where to start?


Am going to visit family living over there ( since 1977 ) in Feb 2013 for a month, so would it be a good idea to wait till I get over there and try make a few contacts while we are there?


Going to NSW looking for Truck or Van driving work, but will do anything.

Willing to work, never been out of work, but some people seem to get there no problem, whereas I cant seem to get past step 1.


Any help replied to,

Thanks in advance

What does your wife do mate?


I remember a couple of years ago someone on here mentioned a haulage company out of south Australia that was looking for or sponsoring people on a regional visa. Maybe someone will remember.


Maybe start googling for the big haulage companies in Aus and send them emails asking for advice.
