Work in Australia

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I hear there's a skill shortage down under, has anyone had experience of working there or emigrating as an arb?

 

 

Don't believe the hype :sneaky2:

There was a skill shortage 12 years ago when I spent 6 months there, but from what I can gather, there is no skill shortage now. I worked in Brisbane, and it was a bit like being in the Royal marines - damn good to boast about and tell stories, but flippin' unpleasant at the time. Scorching heat, poisonous insects, very big trees in tight locations, and a lots & lots of very dodgy operators.

Good friend of mine has been out in Australia for over twelve years, tree work, rope access, on the tools and training people, in Oz and Papua New Guinea, he is now studying to become a Policeman and then joining the rescue squad, he's also getting married, so Australia can still be the land of opportunity.

Work for people in oz is always there if you look hard enough, Melborne is a good place to do arb after working in Qld. Visit Treeworld site and post a few notes there, they have a job page on the site anyway. Dave at Arborco in central Melborne may be looking for climber/groundies.

Mate of mine been over in Melbourne since July, got sponsored by a company there to up sticks and move his family over. He has not shut up about how good it is in his emails so some of what you hear must be true.
