Can only speak for South Australia as I've not looked anywhere else. There's usually about 10 -20 jobs listed every Wed/Sat here for hairdressers.

Not sure how much they earn as it doesn't say.

Hi there,
Just wondering if there are any people in the rail industry out there who can tell me the wages that a licensed signal designer could expect.
There seem to be a few jobs looking at the recruitment sites but they are very reticent when talking about salaries!
Thanks,

re jobs in brisbane and sunshine coast.
i read the answers to some who are finding it difficult to get jobs on the sunshine coast. my husband is a cnc miller/turner/ first class machinist/toolmaker. we were hoping to go to brisbane and surrounding area, now worried after reading forums that he may not find any work. would it be better to relocate to Adelaide then?? We were really hoping to go to Brisbane.

Although, if you would rather not disclose all your personal details, just popdown what you are happy with people knowing, I'm sure it would be a help.

Could you guys tell me how to go about looking for optom positions in Oz. my wife and I are both optoms and plan to head to sunnier shores in the near future. Trawing the net has yielded very little so far but apparently there are many positions avaliable. we will be going to QLD

Just wondering if there are any Internal auditors out there. My OH is a Internal auditor and we are hoping to move to Melbourne September/October. We were wondering what the demand is for auditors, the salary and do they recognize the qualifications that he has in this country i.e. MIIA.
Even if someone could point us in the direction of someone who could help us it would be greatly appreciated.
