    Hi All

     

    Since two of you are asking about the situation for brickies in Melbourne, I ran a search on here but drew a blank. Right. Poach information from the Rival Concern in that case!

     

    Please see this thread:

     

    Warning for bricklayers - Page 5 : British Expat Discussion Forum

     

    and this link, on which there are several threads to choose from:

     

    British Expats - Search Results

     

    If what you read on BE inclines you to think of bricklaying in WA instead, then Billy - who posts on here as billy braveheart - is a Scottish bricklayer working in Perth.

     

    There is a huge amount of building work going on around Perth at the moment, with infill biulding going on all the way from South Perth down to Bunbury because they are putting in a new rail line which I think goes some of the way to Bunbury if not all of the way.

     

    Cal (moderator) on here lives near Brisbane. She says there is a huge amount of building work going on there as well. If so, there must be a demand for brickies there too. I don't know what the pay is currently like in QLD or WA but Billy should be able to tell you about WA and Aldo on here should be able to tell you about brickies' wages in QLD.

     

    Cheers

     

    Gill

        Hi Everyone,
        Am new to this forum ,and really seek guidance.
        After visiting Melbourne on work I have fallen in love with the place and really want to settle down there.I have applied for PR under skilled 189 visa and hopefully will make it( fingers crossed) but my main concern is with my boyfriend getting a PR. He too is securing sufficient points for skilled independent189 visa but has a medical condition.
        He had had a transplant 2 years back for kidney failure with FSGS. But now he is absolutely fine and doing good,working and living all by himself.His doctor too is very hopeful and actually quite certain that he is not going to face dialysis or kidney rejection anywhere in near future. He is 26 years old and his medical costs are within 25000 AUD a year. In case of medical expense being a problem we can ship whole year's drug from India and also as am O +ve, am his living donor for future.
        Does he stand a chance of getting a PR as settlement will become impossible with me only receiving the PR.
        I look forward to help ,kindly guide us so that we can realize our dream of starting a life in Melbourne.
        Warm Regards
        Ninas
