Help please - I dont have a clue where to start

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am wondering if anyone can please help me. Me and my husband (and two kids) are considering a move to Perth, however we have no idea where to start. I have been to Perth, and loved it, and have friends there - one who suggested this site. We plan to try to get over for a long holiday to check it out, but in the meantime it would be good to know if we have a chance in getting in or if we are wasting our time.

 

My husband is a field engineer for SKY in the UK, and I work for a finance company in marketing (they have an office in Perth, although I don't think I would be able to transfer, more get in touch when I am there). He has been with the company for 15 years. We had been speaking about Perth for a while but it was only recently his colleague told him their job role was on the "wanted trade" list thingy, that I started thinking about it in more detail.

 

Please can anyone tell me where to start in this process? I have no idea, and the web is a mind field!

 

Many thanks

Danielle

Hi Dani and welcome to PP. Firstly, you need to see if any of your skills are on the skilled occupations lists which can be found following this link: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Work/Skills-assessment-and-assessing-authorities/skilled-occupations-lists

 

It may be worth having a chat to a migration agent, some offer a free initial consult say if you're eligible.

Talk to a registered migration agent and within half hour or so they will tell you if you are likely to obtain a way into Oz- usually the initial consult if free

I'm sure plenty on here can make some suggestions if you want some ideas of who to approach

I think next step is to speak with a migration agent as you both mentioned. Does anyone have any names? I have seen Go Matilda mentioned?

 

Thank you again.

We are using Gomatilda. Have been really helpful so far. In fairly early stages but they have been so helpful. Can really recommend. Good luck

Have a chat to a migration agent, you will then need to look which body does the skills assessments and what information/evidence you need to provide
