I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Sorry for being a bit thick.

What initial immigration test have you passed? From where?

My husband is a fully qualified plumber/gasfitter with extensive solar, underfloor experience etc so I know something of the trade and also what is required for an overseas person within this trade to come to New Zealand.

Are you a qualified plumber / gasfitter please? You don't actually say.

One doesn't get ' employer sponsorship' here in New Zealand. That's a certain class of visa for Australia.

Sorry! Yeah I am qualified to NVQ3

I have filled the initial web forms in and to get immigration I require a sponsor or a job offer of employment

I too may also be a little thick, sorry

Ah ! No worries.

So how many points did you get from the NZIS points indicator. out of interest.

Could you please have a browse of the ANZSCO listing and say which occupation is relevant to your NVQ qualifications and work experience. I'm a bit confused if you are a fully qualified plumber or gasfitter. Both. Or something else.

Are you under 35 ? Asking for a reason . Not to be a right noseholes.

Lee I'm not sure that 95 points is going to get you very far but Bevs is a veritable guru when it comes to your line of work so you're in good hands.

Fantastic!

Bev! Please coach me, teach me, point me in the right direction.

I am all the things I say I am but don,t seem to be able to put my finger right on it if you know wot I mean?. Supervisor and renewable energy designer just is not on the lists. So do I just put myself in as Gas fitter or plumber?.

Please describe the job

Supervisor and renewable energy designer
Who do you supervise and exactly what is it you design.
Do you mean you research & develop sustainable and renewable green energy systems
or
Do you mean that if someone contacts for advice and a quote for a hot water solar tube installation or a heat pump, perhaps a heat transfer system etc, you are the one that compiles the details for that job and if accepted, you are the one that gives out the work for someone to install?

Sounds nitpicky but the two are very different.

I'd like you to have a read of the PGDB website please and come back to me with your thoughts.

I know this all seems a bit slow given you just asked about someone giving you a job offer here in NZ but it ain't that easy for several reasons. I just want to make sure that what I write to about your possible options will be relevant to you.
