  3. Hi All, This is my first post to the forum. My wife and I have been pondering for a good few years (Since 2011) on whether we should pack up and go or stay and pray that things will get better in SA. Our first child was born in June 2017 and that forced us to have a longer term perspective and to reflect (yet again) on our life strategy and options. I am not going to go into all the reasons as to why we have come to this decision (those have been discussed ad nauseam in many threads), what is more important is that we have made the decision we are moving to Brisbane in

  5. Good day everyone, My husband was told by fellow students when writing his IELTS test that they went to Australia for a few weeks to attend interviews. They were blessed to get job offers and even sponsored visas. Apart from contacting HR Departments from say mining companies can anyone maybe give advice on how to actually arrange for a few interviews so that it can be worthwhile going over before having an approved work visa?

  7. Hi Ever since April this year I've been thinking to migrate but haven't put in a lot of effort yet except for reading. I am eligible for a 189 PR Visa as I'm a Mechanical Engineer with approximately 5 years experience in both Chemical and Power Generation industries. If I get the maximum points for the IELTS I will be having 70 points with the possibility to increase this to 75 next year April. The whole process of leaving everything behind like a decent job, properties and then most important your family is something that we still need to overcome. However ever

    Mixed bag

    Couple of qlvaried questions for those who went on a 190 visa to nsw: 1. You don't need a job offer on this sub-class so assume most people go and then find work once there. How did you decide where to work / live? Not sure to look at school first, then area then commute then job. May be overthinking it. 2. Time of year: processing times 4-8 months. Ideally want to be there in Aug when 3rd term starts but any advice on going later in the year if visa comes in later? 3. Age: not sure if it's a real concern but always a worry in SA. Husband turned 47 this month. Experienced manage

  10. Hi Everyone, I just wanted to find out, does having a TAFE Certificate IV in your current field count for something when looking for a job in Australia? i.e Would it increase your chances of finding a job? I am currently considering enrolling for such a course at Open Colleges (online) and was wanting to hear if it would be worth it.

  13. Good day All. So, we are making the big move to Sydney on 22 January 2017. I work in the SharePoint space and my wife is an actuarial analyst at the moment. So we are looking for jobs and doing all the research for accommodation and how to actually settle in and start a life on that side. We have booked accommodation in a little place in dee why for the first 2 weeks of arriving in Sydney but we need to get more permanent accommodation thereafter and we obviously have a limited budget. If any advice can be given on how and where is a good place to start looking, it would really
  14. Hi, We have only recently decided to go to Australia. I am still wrapping my head around all the different visas and requirements of each. From my limited reading I am seeing that "everybody" goes over without a job, and only starts looking while they are there. This seems very risky to me? I am in the IT field, is this a riskier field or is the demand higher than normal for IT professionals?

    IT Job Lead Time??

    Hi guys How long did it take you to find a job in IT? And where are you? Thanks in advance!
  16. I am currently a Junior software developer in South Africa(1 year experience, 24 years old) with my Bsc. Computer science and Mathematics and Bsc(Hons) Mathematics from University of the Witwatersrand. I was just wondering how I go about looking for work in Australia, how to apply for those jobs, any tests I should take and how to get out of South Africa before it's too late. I have no debt to South Africa(still staying with folks), and no obligations to pay off before leaving. I'm currently also saving money, which I assume you need to have a certain amount saved in order to get a visa? any

  18. Hello All, We have arrived in Australia! It feels good to finally be here, but the paperwork is not yet finished: our import permit email has just come through for the one motorbike, they didn't seem to get the visa grant letter for the second bike (scooter) and our removal company has just let me know that the bikes must be picked up in Cairns (they had originally let us know that they can get dropped at our new address, along with all the other stuff!). My husband has had his first day of work: he says it is very different from what he was used to in South Africa, but the people are very fri

  20. I wrote this as a response to another post and it grew its own head so i created a post for it rather: I work in an industry where i visit a lot of different businesses and deal with management and staff so i got beaten into shape pretty quickly. I am writing this in such a way as to hopefully illustrate why people’s attitudes will not fit in here, I had to fix the below in my own attitude when I got here especially as I am an expert in my field and used to people listening to me….. There is that good old RSA arrogance coming out J The reason why companies interview for people fitting i
  21. Hi everyone My OH has been in WA for 3 weeks now. He has managed to get all his registrations (ATN, Medicare, drivers license, bank account etc) done in quite a short time. He is now job hunting, but finding it a little difficult without the "Aussie experience". He has been doing odd jobs, even free work. He is a qualified plumber and will be getting a forklift license soon. Unfortunately, the next available date for migrant gap training is mid August. He has enrolled for a two week course at the TAFE that will enable him to get his WA plumbing license. He currently has a white card. He is rel

    189 Visa

    Hi All Im new to this forum but its great to find a forum finally dedicated to South Africans going to Oz and visa versa. Thanks for all the infomation thus far.

  24. Hi guys, I have a question, when do you actually start applying / searching for a job? I am in process of applying for a 189 (skilled independent). EOI is done, invitation received, application lodged, information posted and now awaiting CO. There are some approximations of how long it will take and so forth but when do you actually start applying for a job? Will an employer wait for you or is timing important? I am a Civil Engineer and apparently we are in demand in OZ and should not have a problem finding a job (I HOPE). I would like to hear what your experiences are / were? Regards
