  2. Hello, here goes! Our dream has turned a bit pearshaped! We moved out here in May of this year, 7 months ago. I was on a half promise of a job that eventually materialised into reality early August. During the interim we stayed with in-laws, friends etc and were unable to commit to an area, let alone a suburb in Perth. I was chasing theee jobs in the end, 2 in Perth and 1 in Albany. I started the job in Perth in August and we rented a house in Duncraig, based on the suburb and the High School. Trouble is the job was a nightmare. It was soon clear to me that the owner was a bullying, rude tyrant. After 7 weeks I was made redundant. The job was in the waste industry and due to proposed changes the project was shelved. I now find myself working for a haulier in Albany whilst my family are living here in Perth. I leave home at 0330 on a Monday and get home late Friday evening! Not the cohesive family life we envisaged. I am looking for work up here but it's been to no avail so far. It doesn't help that I'm doing 12hr days, so very little time to look. Thats not the only thing. The only one of us who is happy is my 15 year old son. He seems to have settled in well, he's in the triathlon squad, has a shop job in Hilary's at the weekends and loves the skating, though he gets frustrated at some of his friends reluctance to get out and do things. Our other son, 13, has become a hermit. He's not made any friends at all, spends all of his time on the Xbox or Mac, totally different to the fun, gregarious boy he was in the UK. My wife has not managed to make any friends either. She lacks the school gate friendship portal now as the boys are older. As for me, well I just don't have any time at all to do anything. I was cycling with a group up here, but come Sat morning I'm just too tired to get up and cycle, plus I've missed my family and want to spend time with them. It's the friends thing really, we've have found that Australians are friendly, but in a very shallow, low level way. Very polite, but that's it we have some South African Acquantences but they seem to stick together, so they're happy We had a big social circle in the UK, we think we are nice people, so it's very wearing Basically we feel we have no friends and no support, we've both got family out here, but I'm afraid they've been a disappointment we are now faced with the choice of A) Upsticks and move to Albany for my job or head home to the UK. Albany is beautiful, but the job has its drawbacks, well paid but some of the practises worry me; it's a long way from anywhere and I worry about taking the boys there as it's limiting for their social Developements, plus they don't want to go there. Financially we will be on a winner there as housing is much cheaper Not sure what I'm asking really, maybe some input, maybe I just need to put pen to paper. But we are both feeling desperately unhappy, I for one have never felt this way. I've always been an upbeat mood lifter if you like, not the person I find I am now. Any advice or words of encouragement gratefully received thanks Bryan
  3. 🥂🍴 🍽 Would you like to work as a casual chef for our award winning, friendly restaurant? Do you have experience, enthusiasm and are competent and versatile in the kitchen? The restaurant is in North Beach. We're after someone for a fortnight from October the 28th. We're open Tues thru' Saturday. Shift starts lunchtime on-wards. This two week period would be full-time casual, with the prospect of extra work afterwards. We were recently rated a 'must-visit' in a Sunday Times review. Even though we say it ourselves, we're a great team, so come and be part of it! You would probably need your own transport, as public transport isn't that reliable. Please text Sally with your phone number on 0401 566710 with brief details of past work We look forward to hearing from you 😀

As my working holiday visa allows me to work in the same position for 6 months at a time. My visa expires on 31st of July 2017.

  8. Hi, we have just started the process of emigrating to Australia and are hoping to settle in a suburb around Perth. I am a special needs school teacher, I love my job and was wondering if there are any special needs school in Western Australia? And if there are, where are they and how do I find them. Also, is there any websites to look on to find and look through the jobs available? Both teaching and all others. Thank you :smile2:

  11. Hi all, long time reader first time poster........I know, cheesy Anyway, I have now for a long time been considering emigration, and due to a change in family circs here in currently sunny UK, I am seriously considering it. However, due to the way I have gone in my life, dispite my education, I don't match the SOL and only 1 on the CSOL (Police). I am currrently a UK Police officer, and would seriously consider a transfer, but from what I have read over the past few months, WA seem to be the only chance of taking international transfers at the moment, and no news if that will even happen sometime in the near future (unless someone knows otherwise). The other issue with this is that I will have 8 years service in August, and although only just turned 30, last year the service limits was 3-7 years (I know they have boosted this to 10 years in the past). With the current moral and way things are going over here with terroist threats and attacks from all sides, not sure how much longer I can continue with this role in this country - dispite loving the actual bare bones of the job (even the paperwork) My question to you all, if anyone does have 5 minutes to help, is what other way can I look at going..... I have a BA Hons degree in Financial management joint with Business IT as well as A-Levels in computer programming, Accountancy and Mathematics and numerous Policing qualifications (NVQ's from training and promotion exams), but I have no experience other than supervisor roles in the Co-Op shop when I was in Uni. I am considering taking some distant volcational courses in IT and business to boost what I have, but looking at the current jobs market and recent updates on here, not sure that work will that easy to come by for the un-experienced. Anyone with any pointers will be greatly apprechiated.

Any advice on teaching in Perth would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks. Kirsty

  14. Lost Brit in Perth

    Hi to anyone reading this post. I stepped foot into Perth 5 days ago with my girlfriend we are both 30 and looking to emigrate here and both have working holiday visas. 2 days ago I had an interview with volkswagen ahg group and was offered a job as a car salesmen which has been my career for the last8 years, only problem is I don't have the correct visa, I needed a 457 working visa to complete. Really frustrating as this is not a sponsored career recognised on that particular visa. Being more than capable at most things with a professional background i.e customer service, sales and marketing, I'm desperately now trying to find work here in Perth and live the dream with my better half. If anyone has any suggestions or can help it would be greatly appreciated. I'm still here in Perth WA until the 27th. I look forward to hearing from you all the best.
  15. Hello, Good day everybody! I am not sure if this is allowed, but would like to ask if any of you can recommend any recruitment agents for accounting jobs? We will be arriving in Perth in 2 weeks time and is hoping to find a job soon =) Thank you!
  16. We urgently require qualified (experienced) Glaziers for ongoing work. Preferably experienced in commercial glazing and aluminium framing is very much an advantage.

  17. I've recently moved to Perth 3 weeks ago and already found a hairdressing apprenticeship in the lovely centre of Subiaco, but I'm aware that they are looking for a hard working, talented and enthusiastic new junior to join me in our salon. The salon is super busy (i'm not just saying that I'm even struggling to keep up) and the hours are long, but so worth it as its an amazing company and the people who work there are really fantastic at what they do! I currently live in Joondalup and catch two trains every day, which makes the day seem a lot longer so you need a long lasting stamina. You will start as either traineeship or apprentice so incredible opportunity if you are looking for a new career if you've just moved over! (Also if you are 25+ you can start an adult apprenticeship over here) If you would like more information on vacancy please PM me! Jessica
  18. Hi all, I have a question for those who have experience in working both in UK and Oz as a primary school teacher. I have been reading on Level 3 classroom teacher applications and senior teachers, and I'd like to get a real insite on how it would work for someone coming from the UK to work in Oz. The situation is: primary school teacher with 15 years experience, outsanding teacher, working in school management for the past 8 years, 5 of those as a Deputy Head Teacher, but also keeping some involvement in classroom. Wouldn't mind to move over to Australia and work as a classroom teacher. I read you need to be employed by the Dept of Education for you to apply for Level 3 classroom teacher, and I appreciate the complexity of portfolio, etc... My question is: can a experienced teacher from UK apply for a Level 3 classroom teacher once employed in Oz? Is the UK experience accpted for the portfolio? I know it won't be something that you'd do in your first week there, but I'm wondering if you'd have to work another 15 years in Oz to get there again? Also, I have never seen jobs advertized for level 3 classroon teachers... so how they come about? Also, what is the difference between level 3 classroom teacher and senior teacher? How do you progress from one to another? I'm just trying to get my head around on career progression and keep our expectations realistic. Thanks a lot for your insight. PS: Primary school teacher with Oz only experience are also wellcome to comment. :smile2:
  19. Hi My husband and I are looking to move to Perth with our two boys to join his family who live in Freo but it obviously depends on whether we can get jobs. I am an online fashion content editor in London (background in luxury ecommerce and fashion magazines) and wondering if there are any such jobs in Perth?! Any advice on writing/copy writer/ editor/ freelance fashion writing jobs would be really helpful.. My husband works in private equity fund of funds - anyone know if this or similar exists in Perth too? Thanks - appreciate any help. Sarah
  20. I'm gutted...

    I am not on any lists for WA Visa options look very limited Job offers look even more remote as it seems employers want you to be in Oz already Crazy thing is, I am very well known in the UK for what I do, and yet, for Oz, I cannot even seem to get even the most basic job that I am qualified for! All I want, having spent many years visiting Perth, is to now move there Cannot see a way forwards Gutted...
  21. Hi all, I've been in senior manager roles in MNCs in the UK and am now in Perth looking for a job. I've been told by a few people (including Hays who I met) to be open to any level of roles, including entry level - just wondering if it's a wise decision to do that until a senior role comes along, or will I be slotting myself and have to start all over again? Any advice will be appreciated. Many thanks.
  22. Hi All I want comments from your worthy experiences as its a bit frustrating for me and want a forum where I can share my concern. I am a Civil Engineer with 4+ years experience living in WA since Nov 2012 and meanwhile I applied for PR which is due for grant soon as I was on 475 but thought PR is much better if you plan to stay here forever. I am working for a local builder at the moment. Recently, I got interviewed for Manager Infrastructure position in a Shire. The interview was conducted by a panel comprising of CEO, Manager Corporate Services and the Executive Manager Technical Services (The main guy who is hiring). Must tell you that only 3 applicants were shortlisted for interview. My interview was for atleast 1 hour and a half which was a bit surprising and they asked me questions from technical matters to behavioral aspects including my salary expectations and notice period.....At the end of interview we had an informal chit chat as well and they told me that they will be in touch next week. When I was leaving, the Executive Manager walked out with me to the door and the first word he said was " You have done exceptionally well and I am very glad and I will get in touch with you soon" I was very encouraged and happy as I could feel I have performed very well. I also sent them thank you emails individually for the interview and again showed them my interest to pursue the job. I gave the Ex. Manager a call the following week and he said they still have to reach a decision on thursday and again said you have done well. I then called HR on friday to know if there was an update so the lady from HR said they were discussing it on today (Friday) and should know something by monday. I somehow waited till sunday but didnt hear back on monday. upon inquiring the Manager did not come to office on monday so I am waiting if something happens today. Just to let you know the current Manager Infrastructure is leaving the job at the end of month so the position is still not vaccant. I want to know if I should keep high hopes or should I stop expecting a big news from them anymore. I am sure you guys can atleast comment to end my frustration from the long wait. Cheers.
  23. Hi, Myself and my partner are looking to move to Perth but we are worried about finding employment. We have heard that both electricians and social work jobs are in high demand but not sure where to look for work. We are applying for a state sponsorship visa and looking for work in the meantime and just wanted to know if it is likely that employers recruit people from overseas. Also where is the best place to search for work? Any help and advice is much appreciated!
