Hi All We are relatively new to BIB and am just reading threads re work/finding work difficulties etc. I appreciate that the recession also affected Australia, but is it really that bad over there for finding work? My OH is a project manager with 20 years experience as a joiner. He is fully time served and has all his city and guilds. We are just in the process of beginning our visa application so I know that things can change really quickly but are the tradies having difficulty securing employment??? I think OH could work in either occupation but I suppose it depends which one has the most demand. Sorry to be a ninny,:wub::wub: but any tradies out there already got any advice please??????
