Hi,

I'm a industrial mechanical heating engineer age 33 and me and my wife are looking to emigrate from UK. We don't want t go through an agent due to the additional charges but I need some help with where to start. Would it be best to find an employer to sponsor me or just apply for a skilled worker visa and then find a job. We don't mind where we go in Austrailia, so could be quite flexible.

Has anyone ever been to an expo, where you meet protective employers or can anyone recommends any trade recruitment agencies?

Any advice would be great. Thanks

Does your job meet any of the below job descriptions? :

Mechanical Engineer - 233512
Industrial Engineer - 233511


you can also look for more occupations here: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/_pdf/sol-schedule1.pdf

If you do, then you may have a very good chance of getting a permanent residence visa without a job offer, depending on many factors like total years of experience, age, education level, etc.

Once you confirm that your job is in the list, then you need to pass the points test: http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general-skilled-migration/pdf/points-fact.pdf if you achieve 65 points or more, you can start the process of applying for ur Australia Permanent residence.
