Default welder/ boilermaker working in australia

Hello,

I am a welder from the UK, looking to work in Australia preferably on the mines to begin with.

Im just asking if anybody on here has had any experience or knowledge on the likelihood of getting work on the mines in Australia.

Or if anybody could hand me any advice on the matter.

Many thanks
Mark

Slim to none without a visa. What visa are you looking at applying for?

Actually, work in the mines has slowed down a lot. You're probably going to be hard pressed to get work in mining straight away . My partner has 30+ years mining experience and is now working in a city job because there just aren't jobs (in WA anyway) working away.

Thanks for your reply.

I was thinking of a working holidays visa for 1 year. Then looking to relocate my wife and daughter in the future.

Thanks for your insight into the mining industry. It did cross my mind that I may have to get a job within the cities also

A working holiday visa is exactly what it says on the label. A holiday visa thatallows you to work. It does not lead to permanent residence. If you want to move to Australia to live with your wife and child you will need to apply for a PR visa.
