  1. Sounds like our situation is pretty similar! We arrive in Perth on the 15th Jan, getting the final things sorted in the Uk now. looking forward to the move! By the sounds of things work is looking pretty good in Perth if you go looking for it, had a good response on this and poms in perth. looking very positive. good luck to you both.

    Carpenters advice!

    Like yourself, me and my partner are making the big move to Oz after christmas. I am also a Carpenter, my advise is just stay positive and don't freak yourselves out about work before you get there, work and rates change all the time, everything will be fine if your husband is a get up and go type of person if he goes looking for it, he will find it. Good luck to you both!
  4. Now that our Visa's have finally been granted i have decided to join Perth Poms. Me and my fiancé, Kelsey will be making the move over in January after we get one last cold Christmas out of the way! Hoping to get our flights booked this week. We have the 189 Visa, I am a Carpenter and Kelsey is a Beauty consultant. We will be moving into family's in High Wycombe for a while until we find our feet with work etc. Looks like Kelsey will be getting a transfer with her employer, so that should take the pressure off a little. Myself on the other hand will be starting fresh, the plan is to settle down, get a new set of tools and wheels and get myself out there, whether i work for a company or sub contract thats all to be discovered. Looks like their is mixed opinions on work for Carpenters, but what is it generally like out there now? Any advise for getting started and how to approach employers etc? Looking forward to our new life and getting to know all the Perth Poms out there!
