Construction work in WA

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

What would be the best tactics for a couple of blokes looking for roofing & plastering work in WA. To be honest we dont have work visas but are hoping to find sponsors when we arrive in a couple of weeks time.

Do you think its realistic/possible to do it this way? Were both too old to get WHVs so need to find sponsors.

It sounds like there is plenty of work just at the moment & we dont mind moving around in order to find work. I believe there is plenty of work in the Karatha/Port Hedland area. Anyone have experience of working up around there?

Many thanks....Smigs....

Hi Smigs,

 

Bumping up your post for you.

 

Personally I think you will find it hard to obtain sponsorship in Karratha or Port Hedland unless you FIFO. Accomodation is at a premium unless you can find a contractor who can supply a roof over your head.

 

Best wishes and have a safe journey
