Hi guys

Try contacting Sheryn Leach, she is a recruitment agent that helped Vossie get sponsor. She specialises in trades. Her e-mail sleach@challengeltd.com. Hope this helps.

Hi Bulawayo

My husband is a Zimbabwean (I take it you are by your nickname) 47 year old sheetmetal worker. He is currently being sponsored by a recruitment firm in Brisbane called Workforce Solutions www.workforcesolutions.com.au who are desperately looking for tradesmen. Give them a try.

Good luck!

As far as I understand it is more difficult once you are over 50 but not impossible if these forums are anything to go by. A friend of ours contacted Shayne Padgett with Workforce Solutions in Brisbane on our behalf and age (my OH is 47) was never an issue. I suggest you contact Shayne at ShayneP@workforcesolutions.com.au and tell him what your father can do and see what see if they would be interested.

Hi

My husband is a toolmaker and had his TRA approved in March. We had to get the following documents together:

CV detailing machinery etc

Contract of apprenticeship

Trade Certificate

Certificates of courses completed eg N1 & N2, safety, first aid etc

References from past and current employers (I dont know if a payslip would suffice for current employment, DH owns his own business so we gave registration and financials to prove current employment). I asked past employers to give service certificates, be warned that some companies might have things in their archives and this takes time for them to haul the files out. They only keep records for the past 5 years in their offices.

Identity or passport details

On the last page of the TRA application form you must give a detailed job description Turner/Machinist, stating what machinery, hand tools and measuring instruments he has used or you could do a statutory declaration. We went this way as there was not enough space on the form.

My DH was approved on the 900 hours regulated apprenticeship totalling 4 years with work experience. His apprenticeship was for 3 years followed with qualified Toolmaking experience thereafter. The year directly after the apprenticeship seemed to be vital that he was still in the toolmaking trade.

If you need any help with this, feel free to PM me, the trades our husbands are in are similar to some degree, as they use the same tools, measuring instruments and equipment.

Regards

Mandy
