  1. 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!
  2. Hi We hope to be moving to Perth mid 2016 from the UK and have been looking at areas to start off. We are a family of 4... Becoming 5 in a few months time and are looking for a family friendly area that is also close to work for my husband who is a carpenter. We have looked into Wanneroo a lot and like what we see on google street view but would like to know if anyone has any views on this area... Housing, Parks, schools work etc... Naturally we would also be interested in surrounding areas too �� any info would be gratefully received. Thanks! Cara
  3. Hi all Firstly, apologies in advance for any ignorance on my part, I am a newbie to this all. My husband and I are currently looking into our options to move to Australia. We have visited twice and it has long been a dream of ours to settle down under. My husband is 35 next month, I am 32; and we do not have children. My husband has been self employed as a carpenter and kitchen fitter during the last 10 years but most of his skills were acquired on the job and, as yet, he has no qualifications. He would be able to provide customer references throughout the years, photos/videos of carpentry work he has done, tax returns, copy invoices and letters from other carpenters he has worked with throughout the years. We would be willing to invest in any necessary training or assessments. The question I would like to ask is, do we have any chance of getting a 189 visa in spite of my husband's non-qualifications? Thank you
  4. Hi All My husband and I arrived in Perth a week ago. We have a permanent skilled visa. My husband has 10+ years joinery experience, 1st and 2nd fix, roofing etc. We are living north of the river so could you please let me know if you are aware of any vacancies. Thanks very uch Lisa x
  5. Hi I'm reading through the information available on the Vetassess website regarding the Skill Assessment for a joiner (the Training and Employment part). I can see from the Evidence Guide that we need to complete a 'Cover Sheet' listing the Units of Competencies (that I have found in the Joiner Fact Sheet) and indicate which pieces of evidence support each unit. I assume that means I will need to list all 30 Units included in the Fact Sheet?? It also suggests we need 2 pieces of evidence for each unit! Does anyone know what happens if you don't have evidence of 1 of the 30 units? We're considering applying as a joiner but my husband has never used a CNC machine although he's fine with the rest. Do you think this would be a problem? Do you think they could fail his skill assessment because of this? Feeling a bit worried now! Many thanks
