Default Panel Beating / Car Spraying work OZ help please

Hi there everyone I'am Tommy , not really sure if this is the correct place to be asking this ?? But il give it a try .

I am a panel beater and car sprayer by trade and run my own bodyshop doing so , but now after many years of thought , i would like to move to Australia to experience it and work as well .

As that is what i know best i thought that would be the best option for me work wise .

I was wondering if there are any bodyshops on here that would be interested in employing me or if anyone here knows of any .

Im 26 by the way , as im guessing i would get asked for Visa issues .

Anyway thanks for reading this and hopefully someone will be able to help me out .

I think this occupation is on the regional sponsored visa list, so you would have to find an employer who was not in the major cities to sponsor you for a visa. You could also get a working holiday visa (assuming you qualify for one and your age suggests you should), and have a look for potential sponsors while you are on that visa.

And there is certainly plenty of work in regional areas for Panel Beaters and Spray Painters. A WHV sounds like a good start.

OH is a panel beater.... In Perth at the moment there are jobs NOR, but this way it's a bit slow... Insurance companies are squeezing the life out of the trade.

Locally people are being let go.
