  4. 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
  5. hello, myself and my family are searching where to move around the perth area. We are looking at going to somewhere like Joondalup, Oceons Reef, Quinns rocks and other places like this. I'm a carpenter at NVQ level 2 so i was just wondering if you could give me some feedback about what these places are like for families and if there are many carpentry jobs going in these areas. Thankyou.
  6. Hello I am a 26 year old woman from Surrey, currently in my 2nd of 3years of Nurse Traning: hoping to qualify in July 2012. I would like to make the move to Perth as soon as possible after that.

  7. 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.

  14. Hi all, I am a fully qualified electrical technician (27) from the UK. I'm at the stage of having just submitted my EOI for the WA state sponsored skilled working visa, so hopefully within 6 months I should get the thing! My question is: To secure employment with a company in WA will I need any additional qualifications relevant to Oz? If I cannot secure employment beforehand I do not want to go and struggle due to not having 'a' licenses etc... Any help would be appreciated along with recommendations of companies to contact around Perth or Albany. (experience with plc's, hmi's, scada, industrial automation equipment) Many Thanks Craig
  15. Hello, Need a quick help from you guys. Although Electrical Engineer is in WA Occupation Demand list. However, i want to know from you guys how good are job opportunities for ELECTRICAL ENGINEER in WA (Specially in Perth)? What about the scope of smart metering and energy management. This is what i am specialized in. Cheers
  16. OK, here's the deal. My wife and I are pretty sure we want to move to Perth. There are obviously some things we're not sure about, but if we waited until we were 100 percent positive about everything we would never accomplish anything. The reasons to move down there are plentiful and probably similar to those of many others. So the more important issues at the moment are those that give us pause. First, it's the job. I have a pretty good one here in the states and I would like to continue doing something that makes me feel good about myself (currently a journalist). I'm certainly willing to broaden my horizons but I would be lying if I said I don't have high expectations for myself and what I achieve for me and my wife. I am the bread-winner in the family, so that is something we're thinking about a lot.. Any advice on how to start a search for a job that will pay more than administrative assistant or low-level IT? What websites are good resources? Second, health care. Not that the US's health care system is the best on the planet, but we have some damn good doctors and we can choose just about any of them if we wanted to. Is the situation down there the same? Australia is a highly educated country so I would assume it is, but I hate to assume anything. Can someone lead me in the direction toward an online resource that might be able to clue me in on the state of Australia's health care system? Third, and lastly, I need good resources on where to get started. I have done a lot of online searching and, to be honest, the results are a little too plentiful. There's a lot of running around the bush and all I need is something that tells us what we need to do first, second, third ... and so on. Help with this would be significant. I appreciate any help/personal experiences from you all. Cheers.
  17. Hi, my husband is a fully qualified joiner with years of experience in all aspects of his trade, he is moving out next month and would be grateful if anyone could advise of any vacant posts they are aware of. Thanks, Valerie

  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.
