    Hi you could try contacting companys and see what response you get (white pages on line will give you a list of places), its tough to secure work from the UK though, hence where finacially possible some people come out on a reccie first to approach companys, look at areas etc.

    Good Luck with it all

    I think a lot of companies do not employ direct labour, most are sub contractors.

    Just an Idea, but have you thought of a WHV, (Working holiday visa) its for people between the age of 18 to 30 and allows you to work for a employer for up to 6 months. It could be a way of visiting Australia, look for sponsorship once here and possibly gain a job that way.

    This visa is no good if you have a family to take with you.

    unfortunately you can only get one unless you did the required amount of rural work.

    Have you looked at the options for a skilled worker to get over here, it may be worth trying a couple of agents to see what options they could suggest for the visa route and finding out what skill assessments you may have to do to gain sponsorship.

    As I said in my first post I believe most construction companies use contractors. The best I can suggest is that you try contacting prospective employers directly and asking what vacancies may be available and if they would consider sponsorship.
