sponsorship

Hi guys, We think this site is really good and have been getting tips and info from it since November. My husband is a plasterer with his own business, spent the last 2 months getting cv ready and qualifications/work experience etc. Approached an agency to start the ball rolling for skilled visa/skills assessment and we have been knocked back at the first hurdle by agency already. Even though my husband has been plastering for friends and family for about 8 years whilst he was a HGV driver, he only set up full time plastering business 2 years ago. Apparently he needs 6 years work history in this field. GUTTED! Been advised to get sponsored but how do we go about this?? Can anyone advise and has anybody else done it this way?? What about a state independant visa? Just need someone to give us a bit of advice to give us hope that one day we will get there. Thanx Jane L

Have you looked at http://www.seek.com.au

 

Then type in the name of the job you want where it says keywords then it comes up with loads of jobs as i just done it an got loads up, you will then have to email as many as you can and await replies, you will have to be patient, click on each one individually and it will give you more detail of the job then email each one with a covering letter and attatch your cv. Here is a copy of my covering letter to give you an idea what i put to be sponsored. Here is my covering letter:

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Please find attached my up to date Resume for your consideration

 

Having worked for over 9 years as an Auxilliary Nurse and Home Care Worker for Mayday Nursing Bureau and Social Services in the United Kingdom. I feel that I possess the necessary skills and work experience to fulfill roles within the Residential, Aged and Home Care fields.

 

I hope that, on consideration of my Resume you will be persuaded that I can make a valuable member of your team.

 

I do not have a valid VISA for Australia so I would be looking for a sponsorship for any positions that you would consider me for. Any advice would also be much appreciated.

 

Kind Regards

 

I have been sponsored by a company as i didnt get enough points and got job within a couple of days, but we new the company did sponsorship as my husband did the search for me. Let me know how you get on and dont hesitate in asking us anything.

 

 

Good luck and dont give up.

 

Lynne
