Vaughan,

I know this company is frequently looking for people. It depends as well if you are fussy on where you live...

Vaughn, there are very good opportunities in the construction industry at the moment here in Adelaide, but I know Brisbane seems good as well. My husband is an architect and the city is experiencing a major building boom at the moment. He has had no problem finding good employment,after securing several interviews just after arriving (no luck before, they want you to be settled and ready to start work) but has to retrain and sit the exams to register of course... He has been offered jobs in Brisbane based on interviews for jobs here, so I assume the situation must be good there as well. I don't know what the accreditation procedures are for project managers, but I can tell you that there are plenty of adverts in the jobs section of the paper for them and the salaries are VERY good B) Makes me wish hubby would pursue that avenue ... :o

Hey Vaughan,

I have PM'ed you and if you PM me more detail I'll see if I can put you in contact with others in your field.

The Queensland population is growing rapidly and there is an ongoing need for spend in infrastructure - construction/building and housing. I have done a bit of search for you re this and have included a grab-bag full of stuff - don't know if it is all relevant but some of it might help.

Hey Vaughan,

Also check out the Hays site to get an idea of remuneration offered and "job outlook" in your field:www.hays.com.au and more specifically: http://www.hays.com.au/salary/pdfs06/Const...ionProperty.pdf

Hope this helps
