Hi i noticed you are going across as a general plumber, as am I. have you got all your quals (city and guilds etc) or are you doing it through experience.
just wonder what they are like over there regarding our Uk quals. i got my TRA through in september but am just asking opinions on how easy it is to get work over there. what do you think?

cheers mark
anyone elses opinion appreciated too.

Hi Mark, Yes I have all my C & G up to Advanced Craft and then some extra's, cant answer as yet about the job situation it all depends on licenses etc and all states are different, but I believe work is plentifull for the right people.

Although my TRA is for General Plumber my visa was for Plumber Supervisor as I have been in Management now for some time and have managed to secure a job in project management in Melbourne.

We fly on the 8th of Jan and I start work on the 14th (thats if the strikes dont affect us too much), watched all our house contents disappear yesterday in a container on its way to Southampton so no turning back now.

Good luck in whatever you do keep us posted.

Cheers,

Rob.

Hi all Junies,

Our internet access will be a bit hit & miss from now on until we get settled in Aus.

Crown packed us up yesterday, cant fault them they were fantastic, only one slight problem mad panic as we didnt think it was all going to fit in, only thing we have had to leave behind was the garden furniture so no great shakes there, but its now on its way to Southampton to sail on the 3rd Jan to Melbourne.

We are having our leaving party on the 5th of Jan before we fly on the 8th, thats if the strikes are called off at Heathrow, hopefully to be in Melbourne on the 10th, we are staying with my cousin until we find somewhere to either rent or buy hopefullt before our gear arrives at the end of Feb.

Will update as often as we can, good look and a Happy New year to everyone.

Rob, Helen & Caitlain

Hi all, Happy New Year to you all!! Congrats to those in the last few weeks that received CO or visa!!

So, am I right in thinking that there are only us and Babs now waiting for something? Or are there any more peeps tearing there hair out waiting for the visa!!! Its been 3 weeks now staying at friends, us and kids in 1 room, not been too bad but its so frustrating that we need and want to go now, and we cant as still waiting for visa. Really annoyed to as front loaded meds and police checks back in August thinking it would speed it up, looks like im on the bottom of the pile!:curse:

Oh well, good luck babs for next couple of weeks and good luck to all that are flying out soon! Carley
