Default Printing industry, help please

Hi everyone
My youngest sister is giving serious thought to emigrating after us (Yipeeee), her husband works in the printing trade, can anyone point us in the right direction to start our research re earnings, employment etc

Any help at all would be really appreciated.

hi
we went to oz last year on a reccie, went to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
while we were out there my husband contacted a few printers, but a lot of the work was contracted out?
we have looked on job web sites and finishers and binders seem to come up.
hope this helps.

This type of job will be TRA so check out the website for the required qualifications training etc.

Sorry for stating the obvious but Money and Work availability can depend on the type of work, eg book, magazine, newspaper etc skills that he has and what experience of large plant or small kwik print places. My husband is a printer with 20 years top level book/newspaper and colour magazine experience and it took him 2 years to get a job here in Sydney in his trade.

Mind you had we gone to Bendigo he would have walked into a job straight away because of connections. It can be a very unionised industry here with closed shops operating.

I have not got the link (am at work) but you need to look up the award rates for this industry as most places follow them closely. It can be a very well paid job if you work the shifts and days that pay the extra rates (called penalty rates here).

I will ask hubby tonight about the Union side of things it might be worth finding out that side of things.

I am so jealous that your sister is considering coming over. Mine made fleeting comments but has not settled back down in the UK and I miss her like crazy. Best of Luck

My husband was assessed and qualified as a Screen Printer for the TRA skills assessment. He has worked as a screen printer, print finisher and production manager over the years.

He successfully found work through a recruitment company pretty soon after we arrived here in Sydney. The recruitment company is called Exact. http://www.exact.com.au - might be worth him contacting them. There seems to be a fair few ads for printers/finishers on www.seek.com.au too.

Good luck

My Lecturer at TAFE said that the printing industry in Perth is in decline, as most places (and jobs) have gone over east. So definitely look at Sydney etc first. The only really big place left in Perth is Lamb.

Ha, Pascal's company used Lamb!
But they were to annoying, so they're now with another one just round there, that you can also see from the Graham Farmer fwy. Can't think of the name!
And they're also quite annoying he says, but it'll do.


I would assume The West still prints it's own newspapers? And the Community newspapers?
