Newbie hoping to move to Melbourne!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum, and have read a lot of interesting information on here. Some of the threads where people have been waiting 2 years and beyond are a little depressing, as I don't want to wait forever to get out to Oz!

My family and I are looking to move to Melbourne area on my wife's skill as a Cake decorator which is classed as a specialised field under a pastry cook.

We are using Get Going as our agent as we thought it would be better to use an agent for our application. I have to say Susan from Get Going has been very helpful so far.

My wife is going to be assessed for her job via a skype interview over the web, to hopefully gain an AQF III certificate. We are just waiting for her paperwork to be assessed by the AQF people before they allocate a date for the interview.

From what I can gather from reading other posts on here, her skill is on a class 176 which I think means we will come under a SMP? It's all a bit confusing!

 

As I said, we're hoping to move to Melbourne as we already have friends living there who we visited earlier this year, and fell in love with it. I lived in Adelaide for 6 years when I was very young (between 2&7) so keen to go back and spend the rest of my life in Oz!

 

Would be interested to hear from anyone else who has used Get Going, as I don't know anyone else who has used them.

 

Paul

Welcome to the forum, do not know much about migration as so long ago for me however I think you will find out a lot of information in the migration forum on here, a lot of the specialist people have posts there giving a lot of information.

 

Also have a look at the Victoria forum as there is a lot of good information going back a long time which may be very useful to you.

 

Good luck

Hi Petals,

Thanks for the welcome. I've found this forum very good thankfully. I've just found another member who does a similar job to my wife so sent her a PM for any tips she can send my way!

If anyone else has any tips/suggestions, feel free to post here - all help greatly appreciated!

Hi,

 

Welcome to the forum...

 

Just wanted to say hi, we live in Melbourne too (been here about 3 months)...

 

If you end up settling in Point Cook or local western suburbs, we have a regular meet from Poms in Oz, so you are more than welcome to join us.

 

Elaine.


Living in Sanctuary Lakes, Point Cook. Glad we made the move. :biggrin:
