    • We are seeking an experienced engineer to work as a sub contractor in our busy Perth workshop You will have a checkable work history as a domestic appliance or white goods engineer with a manufacturer or recognised service provider and have the ability to work to a consistently high standard. You must have a PR visa and be in Perth or due to arrive shortly For more information send me a private message   Sent from my SM-T813 using Tapatalk    
    • It would be hard to get a sponsor as a bricklayer as most are self employed, so not eligible for sponsorship. Also, under the new regulations you would need to pass a skills assessment. Have you completed a formal apprenticeship? A CSCS card doesn't mean you are qualified as a bricklayer.  You need to be aware that as you are over 45, as pointed out to you, you are only eligible for a TSS. This is only a temporary visa, which would never translate to anything else. So, sooner or later you would have to move back to the UK. A TSS may be for one day to a maximum of four years. 
    • Hi and welcome to the forum.  The TSS as you probably know is designed to temporarily fill vacancies in the short term when they have been unable to fill the position with an Australian.  Have a look on places like seek.com or find out names of companies and email them directly.  There is a thread about construction and whilst there are hints that this field is picking there haven't been as many jobs advertised it seems as in the past. You will, it seems, have two hurdles - 1 to secure a sponsorship and the fact that your visa will only be a temporary one and if there are Citizens/PR's applying for the same jobs they will get priority. We do have some members who've worked in this industry and they may be able to give you some ideas/sources to target.  Good luck.
    • Hi, I am extremely interested in moving to Perth and have already touched base with a MA in WA, who has advised that, as I have turned 45, I would be eligible for the TSS visa, if I am able to acquire sponsorship with a company.  I am currently working within the Construction industry and have done so for 28 years; I am a qualified bricklayer, which appears on the MLTSSL (ANZSCO 331111) and hold a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, which provides proof that I have the acquired training and qualifications to undertake the skills of my trade.  Is anybody able to offer advice on any approved construction sponsors and how you went about obtaining sponsorship. I appreciate your assistance with my query. Many thanks
