Welcome to PIO! I'm sure you'll get responses! Might also be worth posting it on the sister site, Perth Poms!

Hey mate, I'm living in perth; south of the river. There's loads of jobs bricklaying here and you shouldn't have a problem finding work if your good, fast and neat.

At the mo theres lots of work around busy as its been for a couple of years in Perth. Swings in roundabouts but its good for now.

Perth prob best place for brickies from what i've heard.Not to sure about the east. The bricklaying is a little different than the uk and takes a bit of time to learn the aussie way and deal with the heat.

You wouldn't have any trouble finding work.

Hi Rich,We can only get a regional visa for western australia ,so I think that means I cant work in Perth for 1 or 2 years ,do you think I would have trouble finding work outside of Perth and could you tell me approximately what sort of wages they are earning ? cheers

Hi rich , do you know if a carpenter can expect that same sort of wage as the brickies in Perth ?

 

Not too sure about the chippies and what they get, most trades get a wage around $30 - $50 per hour in Perth.

Im a 26 year general builder in the UK, i run my own business at the minute but want to emmigrate to Oz. I have an aunt who is a citizen and lives in Melbourne. I visited her on a working holiday visa afew years ago and loved it, in some ways regret coming back. I worked as a bricky while i was there and got on well. Im qualified to NVQ level 3 in bricklaying and have 8 years work experience. Do i need to get my bricklaying VETASSESSed? I really not sure how to move forward with this at minute, also saw bricklaying fell off the main SOL list :( any help as to how to move forward would be appreciated. thanks

woods - we are in the process of applying for a Skilled sponsored 190 visa, my husband is a bricklayer with same qualifications as u and 9 yrs exp after apprenticeship. yes you have to have your skills assessed. the 190 visa we are applying for is for Perth as they still have bricklayer on their consolidated skills list I'm not sure if Melbourne has it on theirs but it will be worth checking, we were devastated when it got taken off but where there is a will there is a way!

Thanks for your reply :) i was pretty gutted to but as you say where there is a will there is a way. Sadly melbourne is not an option for me because no state sponsors are available there but i have decided to go for a WA sponsor to. Is your husband sitting an english exam? I have to because sadly some of my years work dont count so have less points from that catagory. Have you looked into Perth alot? I went to a migration seminar hosted by the emmigration group last weekend and a government rep from WA was there. They showed a video and it looked great :)

I'm here an settled now and pride in your work is not a must here , I was the same back in blighty. If you come to perth I would be able to get you in with us no bother , decent brickys are in demand still in Perth. You will not get sponsored tho I think
