10 Things you'll love about Western Australia

Western Australia is huge. About the size of India, and it covers approximately one third of Australia.

To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure about coming here to begin with. Bill Bryson had written in one of his books that Perth was the most remote city in the world, and apparently it's the only one clearly visible from space too. I felt that we would be heading for the back of beyond, never to escape, and why of why weren't we heading for Melbourne or Sydney or Brisbane…

More foreign workers needed in Western Australia

An extensive report has backed business claims that more migrant workers are needed in Western Australia.

The report, from Edith Cowan University, and covered in WA Today,concluded that Australians in the eastern states were too reluctant to make the move west, and universities are not adequately preparing students.

Numerous WA resource companies are forking out between $7000 and $65,000 on each application to bring in an overseas worker on a 457 visa because they cannot…

IETLS AND STRESSED

This IETLS is now getting on my nerves. I keep getting a band 6 in the writing section. I am about to take it for the 3rd time with the help of a personal tutor and approx minus £500 in total. Considering NZ has a shortage of nurses they do not make it easy. Plus now research has shown it is a added negative costly stressful process which holds no relevance to how nurses practice.

Rant over now and sorry. Any tips though would be gratefully recieved .

We are now down under!

So we have finally made it. We landed in Perth on 21st September to start our new life. Luckily we are staying with family for a bit until we can sort out work and accommodation and schools etc which is a huge relief. I wouldn't normally do something so brave but felt we had to make the move now as it was the best time for the children. Heart wrenching to have to leave all our friends and family but so far so good. I know there are going to ups and downs but hopefully the ups will outweigh the… Continue

The Paperwork

Take from http://pommiehawes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/the-paperwork.html

Last week was an introduction on how I got the idea to move to Australia, this week I'm going to tell you about the application process. I think the only difference between now and then is that you have an extra step called Skills Select. Basically all that is is that you register your interest to migrate to Australia and when you get…

Entry level mining offers for UK applicants, real or false?

Hi, I like many are going through a long and stressful application to migrate to the greatest country on Earth!

 

I have seen many adverts/Google posts regarding mining in WA and that entry level positions may be available?

 

Also the email I received from Australia and New Zealand Magazine which was headed "ow you can join the mining boom in Australia - with no experience..""

Is this true?? Can anyone help me with this?

Teaching qualifications

Hi There,

My husband is a PE teacher and did his training in Australia at ACPE - this was back in the late 80's, he didn't work as a PE teacher in Australia, but has started supply PE teaching in Scotland.

Movers and pet people

Anyone used Crown Relocations or AngloPacific to move?

How about pet people for our dog?  We're looking at Petair UK and Ladyhaye.

We'd really appreciate any comments/feedback on these companies.
