  1. Can anyone please help me. Have been trying to get an electrical post for over two years with no luck. All I want to do is complete my gap training so I can do my final exam. I have applied for job after job! Talked to companies and sent emails. There is literally no company that will give you a chance if you are qualified from the UK. Yet it’s ok for the system to take your money for courses and make it so difficult to get your qualification. All everyone wants is an AGrade licence, TAFE wants practical experience so how’s that even possible! It’s a situation that is so frustrating.
  2. Hi All, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I am living in Perth, WA and trying to find electrical work to gain the "A grade electrical licence". I hold a provisional electrical licence and require "gap training" before I am allowed to take the required capstone exam. I have been in Perth for almost 5 years. I tried to get a job when I first arrived with no luck. As a result of this I started working international in the oil & Gas. I am now trying again and facing the same problems I did 5 years ago. I have pretty much applied to every company, agency and rope access company with only one company offering me a start, unfortunately he didn't want to pay me. Unfortunately most companies in WA are not aware of the process for a overseas electrician to gain an Australian electrical license and have no interest in employing a overseas qualified electrician. They simply prefer to employ a Australian qualified electrician or an apprentice. I have done some Australian courses and licences such as EEHA, High risk work, MSIC, White card If anyone can help with regards contacts etc it will be greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi there, Poms ! I am after EOI for a mot tester and mechanic to work down south in Buselton at an indpendent VW and Bmw workshop. Some vehicle examination or MOT experience would be great. For those who need regional work area for their visa then look up Busselton. I was a 457 into Alice springs years back and am now service manager at Passmores in town. If you have a current cv and have mot testing and a good all round mechanical background would like to hear from you. cheers Andy.

  5. Hi all! I have currently been teaching for 5 years in the UK and moving to Perth next September (Fingers crossed!!) I currently teach maths to pupils aged 11-16. I know schools in Oz go up to Year 12 which is currently our A-level. However I have no experience of teaching 16-18 and I am not sure I would feel confident teaching with out some retraining. Is it possible to apply / secure a post just teaching Year 7-10? Or am I really reducing my chances by not having this experience? Any advice on this please or general advice on teaching in WA would be massively appreciated. Kirsty

  7. Hi All, I'm Andy, I'm 34 years old and I'm all set for the big move down under with my beautiful girlfriend on a permanent residency visa. We arrive in Perth on October 10th. I've been in the window and glazing industry for 18 years doing everything from window/conservatory installations, glass replacement, frameless glass/mirror installations to full window refurbishment and some experience of glass and window fabrication and preparation. The time has now come where we both start looking for work in our new country and I am hoping to connect with other people in my industry who may be able to help me land on my feet; anything from advice on good companies to contact, to job offers! I would love to hear from anyone who might have any insight for me. I have CV ready to send out, and I am ready to start work as soon as the right opportunity presents itself. Look forward to chatting with some of you Andy (and Gabi)

    From Finland

    Hey! I have been planning to move to Australia with a friend. Perth seems like a great city, so I googled a bit and I found this site. We just finished high school, we are 19 years old, soon 20. We have some work experience and we speak 4 languages fluently. So, I was wondering, is it easy to get a job in Perth? And how much would living cost there? Thank you for your answers !
  11. Hi Guys, I'm Matt and new to this site. I'm 28 and at a point in my life where a change is necessary and I've decided to take the plunge and do something I have always wanted to to and emigrate to Australia. I have worked around SE Asia and the be based in a fabulous country like Australia and have the flexibility to holiday in SE Asia seems like heaven to me. I work in a Sales role for a large international Valve and Instrumentation comany that works heavily in the Oil and Gas industry and there is a position avaliable to me in Perth. The company is paying for my Visa and initial travel but thats as far as it goes and this is not a secondment - it is a permenant posisition so no relocation help etc. A guy from my hometown in Liverpool is taking over the business as Director and he would like me to work with him in Sales. I've been offered a 1st year basic of 65k but the OTE with commission should be 110-130k. There is also a car allowance of 20k on my salary to purchase my own vehicle for company use (the company at present own their employees company cars but are keen to get away from this due to fees and taxes involved for the company so are offereing the 20k subsidy). I am looking to move in March 2014. I'm coming over on my own and I am single guy. My first obvious question is, is this a comfortable wage? I only have around £6k in the bank to assist with rental bonds etc and no other assets. I currently earn around £55k + car in the UK per year which gives me a nice life with a few holidays a year. I know there is the 2.5 x rule but at present a lot of my money goes on drinking out in the local pub which is something I am keen to stray away from in Aus as there will be a lot more I can spend my time and money on. To me the move is more than money and mainly around lifestyle but obviously money is very important. My next question to get me started is around nice places to live. I do not want to be right in the city but would like to have good access to it including nice resturaunts and some nightlife so I can meet new people. I know this is pretty vague but any suggestions are very welcome which will allow me to embark on my research a little further. I am going to have to rent fully furnished and would like some outside space for bbqs with 2 or more bedrooms. You answers are very much appreciated - I will be back on for a lot more help in the coming months so I will keep this forum ticking along with questions don't worry I look forward to hearing from you all. Thanks, Matt

    Resume Versus CV

    The great news is that we got our visa a few days ago...Yipeeeee!!!! However the hunt is now on for a job as a Learning & Development Manager, Training Designer or Project Manager. Firstly, can I ask all of you lucky people already in Perth/WA, what is the employment situation like in those sectors at the present/next 6 months?Secondly, would an 'Australian style Resume' be better than my UK styled CV during the job application process? If a Resume is recommended, has anyone got any tips, or companies that do the conversion for you?As always, your thoughts and considerations are appreciated... We can't wait to finally get out there, it's been a fairly long wait since the meds )Cheers Al, and the Gregory family

  17. Hi, I'm posting on here to ask how other UK electricians are doing when it comes to finding jobs in order to complete the gap training course. I have my provisional electrical workers licence and letter from Energy safety which says that I need to contact a lady at Poly technic west to book my gap training but, as most people, I'd much rather do the 2 week course at CET to get my licence. I had a run around the other day to CET, Polytechnic West and Energy Safety and spoke to people at each place - I was told that it is like this: The old system is the 2 week ETL course which you will need to have your skills assessed by TRA (with an ARTC) to sit this course. If you already have a vettassess OSTR then TRA aren't supposed to assess you (but they often will so its a bit of a gamble?) The TRA assessment require you to fill in the application form and sent copies of certs etc which have to be certified copies (certified by a migration agent or other aussie listed person) costs $300 and takes around 3 months. I'm not sure but I get the feeling that this systme may be being phased out? The gap training course takes upto 12 months and consites of 2 weeks college, on the job gap training then 1 more weeks college. It is often completed in much less than 12 months depending on what access you have to the tasks needed to fill out your log book. This will depend on the work that your employer is doing. Heres the catch as far as I can see: Electrical contractors aren't interested in employing people on provisional electrical licences when there are other guys with A grade licences or Aussie apprentices applying for the same jobs. Is anyone out there part way through the gap training and have a job? All I see on these forums is that its impossible to get a job which would mean that the gap training system doesn't work as you cant do the er... Gap training? I'm a bit confused and down at the moment - tell me it's possible! (to do the ARTC system I will have to wait for my container with all my qualifications then apply for the ATRC, then apply to Energy Safety, Then apply to sit the ETL before getting my licence - I'm a bit worried about this as I think that will take a really long time and ther'se a big risk that it will fail at some stage if TRA wont assess me or they stop using the ETL route?) Thanks for any advise - and do let me know if any of my info is wrong!!
