I'm currently looking into emigrating over to Brisbane from not so sunny Scotland. I've completed an apprenticeship as an Electrician and have 3 1/2 years experience after being fully qualified in the oil and gas sector but was trained in the housing and industrial side of things.
What i'm looking for is some information from people who have followed the same path over as i'm not sure what visa to apply for to get over to oz! Electricians are on the skills shortlost and as I wont have the Australian certificates the need for re-training over there is essential for work. I'm not sure how to go about the application without fully understanding what visa i am entitled to apply for and what one is most appropriate my someone who intends to live there on a full time basis and not just for a year or 2.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as i am in the early stages of gathering information.
