I am the prophet of doom and hear one bad thing and think the sky is falling in! We just want to make a go of it, so, as long as we can find work that's all we'll need to get cracking.

I am hoping to come out this year...probably in April or May. I am a loner but am lucky enough to be staying with friends to start with. Any advice, tips on job hunting would be well appreciated.

Work history....done lots, will do anything to get started, currently I am in the hospitality industry running a hotel/pub/restaurant. I would be keen to stay in management but hey, beggars can't be choosers so would start at the bottom and work up!

I have also sold cars, been a transport manager and am a qualified jig and tool design engineer and machine tool draughtsman.

Bugger me I have done some stuff!!!!!!!!

Hi Scor
Question for you - I have some 110V tools and have heard on sites 240V is the norm - is it worth me bringing my 110V tools with me? I'd rather know now before I pay for them to be shipped out and sell them before I go but if it's worth hanging on to them then I will.
Cheers

It's 220V over here, so you'd need a voltage converter for your 110V tools. Personally, unless they're expensive hi-precision tools, I'd sell them. I've worked in the past in places that have had 110V and 240V kit and it's been a pain - to stop people plugging the 110V stuff into the higher voltage you keep different plugs on it, and then you start needing two sets of extension cables and distribution boards...

Mind you, I'm a software engineer not a plumber

Cheers
