Brickies and builders beware...very little work around Brisbane area! Whole load of construction going on but unless you hold a host of licences, which are costly, good old brickies and city n guilds builders dont stand a chance. I know this because my hubby, builder with own business is struggling to secure perm full time work, try and secure job before coming out if possible. My job wasnt taken into account on visa application (medical admin) but 10 jobs for every 1 of husbands! just wanted to warn you, we took for granted, because we moved to flood area that he could find work with ease..not the case!
