    Hi mac pom pom here aka the McKnights from Glasgow

    I don't think I need to remind anyone how dire things in the UK are - news of more and more job losses everyday, house repossessions at an all time high and no real prospect of the situation changing anytime soon! So my question is this - are there jobs to be had in Oz?
    I appreciate that without specifics this is difficult to answer. My husband is a project manager for a construction company but a joiner to trade. I work in social care - mental health, homelessness and drug/alcohol addictions. I have seen threads on some sites stating that things are getting tight for trades personnel in Oz. I have just watched wanted down under and I long to return to Oz, but I do feel that the program does not always explain the full extent of the truth, it seems as though there are jobs a plenty but surely this cannot be the case? Is it just my cynical default setting or are there real opportunities to be had? Is Oz showing any sign of recession? I would appreciate any advice/help please

    grateful thanks in advance

    Hi and welcome to Brits in Brissy, Joiners/ carpenters do seem to be having a bad time at the moment and work oppotunities for them are in short supply. Most health proffesions seem to be recruiting as normal so i personally think you would find something, its the construction industry thats hardest hit at the moment.
    The thing to be wary of with Wanted Down Under is some of the shows were filmed years ago, so you may fing infomation, property prices, job vacancies etc slightly out of date, i know we filmed WDU 3 years ago and it was repeated again last week, obviously anyone watching that unaware it was filmed so long ago may feel mislead.
    Hope this helps a bit
