Boilermaker/welder looking for 457 sponsorship - please help.

Recommended Posts

Guest darh479

Hi, I am a boilermaker/welder from the UK, 26 years of age and am currently here in Australia WA on a student visa for the last 6 months. I am currently between semesters on my TAFE course and so have been working full time as a Boilermaker/Welder in WA. I am having trouble finding this company to sponsor me as I am employed via an agency, and I also have to go back to TAFE next week. I am hoping to change to a 457 or another temporary visa ASAP in order for me to work full time in my trade. I am currently based in WA south of Perth and living with my parents and other family who are all permanent residents of Australia but I am willing to work anywhere in Australia if I can get sponsorship (VIC, QLD etc). I am hoping to eventually to become a PR. I also have had my skills assessed by TRA and my trade is on the SOL list as Metal Fabricator 322311. Any help would be absolutely great thanks.:jiggy:

Hi Darlon,

I see nobody answered your question... I suggest you start a new thread and put a strong title of your new thread, for example "Metal fabricator - Victoria - assessment - help", something that will get noticed, so you have more chance to get an answer...

Good luck!

Kind greetings,

bma
