We're hoping to get to Perth, just because we've never been to that part of Oz. Why have you chosen Adelaide

Hi Petereb and Lee on solent,
How have you got on with getting all of your info together? It is full on isn't it! I am still waiting for the TRA to come back. I hope it is still taking 3-4 weeks. If so it should be any day now. Had the packers in for quotes to move the stuff. Not taking much but it is still quite expensive. Stuck in limbo land for now.
We are heading to Perth area no idea where exactly as yet, will find out when we get there.
Hope all is going well for all of you chefs out there.
Nicky

Hi it is full on getting all the stuff together for the tra,we are getting there we still need to get the stat decs done.my stepbrothers girlfriend is from perth and my stepbrother as lived there, they are in england at the moment as his girlfriend wants to visit most places in europe before they head back to perth for good, he said its fantastic there.We have decided on Adelaide as the houses are cheaper and the weather is more suitable for us.There is a couple of forums we go on for adelaide and everyone is friendly,they have lots of get togethers and help each other so its like we know lots of people but we have never met,we hope it wont be long before we can meet them for real.

Hi Sal30
I think that chefs are quite high on the skills shortage list for Canada too. I spoke to a woman at the Canadian stall at the Sandown Park Immigration Show a few weeks ago and she said then it is one of their most needed skills. Good Luck

Morning All,

I hope you all remembered to put your clocks forward an hour! Wee question......... can anyone give me an idea of wages for a fully qualifies chef of 20+ years? (i'm hoping not to have to work, just let the OH do it all )

Cheers!

You need to define "crap", surely it's all relevant, if the rent/houses are cheaper and the food is better value then it doesn't matter if the wages are less.

I agree the lifestyle is alot better and I waken-up every morning and the sun is shining and I have only worked 55 hours this week.Next week I am going to working 70hrs.Rent is not very Cheap,so please don't try and insult my intelligence of life on the Coast.Don't get me wrong,I love it here.I just want people to know it is not all for the money.
If you love cooking its a great job and you will realise that the money is crap everywhere,sorry.Job satisfaction and all the rest.
I sold a restaurant in England to move here.I enjoy not working 100hrs+ a week.Average rent is about 400 a week.Melbourne,Perth and Sydney would be alot better wages.
Please feel free to ask more.

Not sure on Canada.
I do normally 5 days.Sun,Mon off then its splits and straights the rest.But I have not worked later than 10.They all go out early and you cannot find many good places to eat after 8.30.
I only live 10mins from where I work so I'm quite lucky.
