Self employment,is it an option
 
Reading a few post it seems that their is a shortage of skilled trade jobs, with me due to be in Australia in January i was considering going self employed (joiner/ general builder) is their any issues i need to be aware of.
Its pretty simple in the UK all you need is a CIS Card(to sub contract) or just advertise your services and wait for the phone to start ringing ?.
How easy would the process be in OZ ??????

This may vary depending on what State you move to.

eg:

Queensland
A licence is required when an individual or company wants to carry out, undertake to carry out or supervise building work valued over $3,300 (including labour and materials) in Queensland.

South Australia
There is no legal requirement for licensing or registration for the occupation of Carpenter in South Australia.
