    Hiya welcome to brits in brissy ,,as Toby says there does seem to be quite a few vacancies in your trade ,however things do vary with the jobs over here ,most tradeys find this ,so for a few months whilst you get to grips with everything id be tempted to work for an employer whilst you sus things out.Good luck with everything

    If you have the experience and qualifications for a skilled independant visa ,id definately follow that route,it does take a litle while longer than sponsership to process but leaves you free with no ties when you arrive.
    Hope this helps a bit ,if you want to have a chat with an agent most will offeryou free phone advice.

    skilled visa

    hi we went through the skilled visa route it took about 11 months but well worth it in the end we went for a short interview to decide our best way to get visa we used a company called the immigration group they were good for us but as cal says there are plenty of others it is a long sometimes frustrating route but now we are here and enjoying the sun and everything else in brisbane its a distant memory id say get on with it and dont look back
