Hello, can anybody help us with a TRA application for a chef? How much detail do we need to write? My partner is a senior sous chef in a london restaurant his been employed for 7 years and doesn’t want to ask his employer for reference at this early stage of the application, will this be an issue? will a statutory declaration be suitable to cover this period? also do we need to get references for previous employers from 8 year ago!?

hi yes you do , you have to give all the info from . every job on headed papper if you can not get this you need to do a stat declaration , these need to be in detail like how you moved up in rank what you used to cook from pans to stoves to steamers to slicers anything and everything that you used . more detail the better . do all of them like a small essay , then you need copys of all trade documents and copy them a few times get this done at magestraits court something like that and its cheap . and pay slips and get info from your national insurance this will say where you worked and dates also from the tax people get info from them also , this all helps. all i can say is keep it nice and all in order , with lots and lots of info , and proof of it all , hope this all helps , i did most of my references on there headed papper and they just signed them , i was lucky that they all said i could do this , all the best

Hi
I moved here in November 2007 as a Chef, I am in WA. I came on a skilled independant visa which means i can work in any town, city or state I choose too adn not where i am told by a sponsored visa. I would strongly recommend doing it 'not sponsored' mainly because of the freedom it allows (imagine if you got an employer who treated you bad, or ended up living somewhere you hated - with a sponsor it is much harder to move on!) independant visa also gives you permanent residency which allows you medicare, family assist and you dont get stuck with big school fees!
Good luck. Its hard work getting here but worth it in the end

Hi Sara,

The best way is through getting an Australian Certificate III through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). I know a really good company that do this in the UK. This will get your TRA application processed very quickly. Also, as of the 1st July it is mandatory for the skills assessment for both temporary and permanent visas.

Kind Regards,

Well you are lucky - Chefs are in massive demand in Australia - they get paid around $55,000 upto $75,000 if they can handle a busy section.

We are looking to live in Adelaide or perth?

Adelaide has more cafe's per-capita than any other city in Australia. Perth is drop dead geourgeous and yes, there is demand in both areas.


iv bin on a few job sites and keep seeing quite a few jobs.. im i safe to assume there is plenty of work?

Yes - it may take a little while to find the most suitable Job, but there are definatley plenty of vacancies.

Does anyone know ruffly how much the wages are?

$55,000 starting. But the one good thing is that you get better accommodation in Australia compared to the UK. That is why I moved in the first place!

And acommodation, whats best? iv herd it can be pretty pricey to rent?
have many of u rented or brought?

I came from London and the rent in Australia is quite expensive, but what you get is ALLOT more. I lived in London and had a two bedroom dump and in Australia for the equivalent money I got a three bedroom house with garden 15 mins drive from the beach - well happy.

thnax to anyone who can hellp
The TRA can be abit of an issue - they receive quite a few bogus applications from many countries so the honest Chefs / Cooks have a tougher time of it unfortunatley. The best way we have discovered by far is getting a Certificate III by Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be done in the UK and we know a really good company that does this - it only takes half a day to do.

Kind Regards,

Pommy Lee
