      New Forum Upgrade   03/24/2017

      On behalf of the admin and moderators of the forum we would like to thank you for your patience during the forum upgrade.  We understand that members don't like change, but unfortunately we had to move with the times. There are lots of exciting changes and features to be made in the coming weeks, however, our priority was to get you all back online as quickly as possible. There is a thread in Forum Q & A (accessible via the link below) if there are any urgent issues please post them in there then we can monitor one thread instead of missing posts. Thank you once again The Pom Queen and Cerberus1 ADMIN

Job career change

4 posts in this topic

hello all,


This is my first post as we had decided not to go to Oz after visiting an emigration show. The problem is that although I am a nurse and should be ok with a job, my husband has been having a lot of trouble getting any answers about work for him in Brisbane/ Perth areas.


He is a design engineer and uses computers to design gas fires and the technical drawings that go with them. His background is in production engineering, steel manufacture and welding. No-one at the show seemed able to tell us if there was any industry in these areas or even a website that could help.


If anyone has any websites or advice in general I'd be really grateful and I don't want to give up on Oz just yet- been dreaming of it for the last 20 years!


Thanks all.


Tracey :D

Hi Tracy and welcome to the board - Just a wee baby at two weeks old! :D


I too am an engineer and will hopefully moving to Perth in Sept (Fingers and legs crossed!). I found a couple of really good websites when I first started looking at jobs.

The best by far was


http://www.seek.com.au - oodles and oodles of engineering/design jobs but there is also



Another good place to look would be the Australian Engineering Institute. Don't know there web address but googling it should find it!


Hope this helps
