Automotive Tech garage locations

Hi
Really new to the forum.
Just starting my journey with regards to relocating in Australia .
Looking for some local advice
I'm fully trained and qualified Motor Mechanic and looking to get work within a dealership either Citreon , peugeot or Kia .
Thinking of living in the Geelong area but will consider any location near by .
First question what is Geelong like to live in ? Cost of rental , public transport . Crime rate

Second question are most of the car dealerships. More city based ?

Thanks in advance

Don't know much about Geelong to comment.....but go the Cats!

Look up Seek.com.au - there were jobs for European trained mechanics at dealers here in Sydney.
I suspect there will be some similar jobs in Geelong.

Lots more European imports coming in that local mechanics know little about.

Good luck.

Started long time ago in automotive mechanics and finished as a marine engineer. Had more good, interesting jobs than not so good. Now am off the tools.....

I suggest that you get a great resume together and look up the major European car dealerships here in Australia (the ones you are trained on)
Send them your resume and a personal letter and I am sure you will get a positive response.

There are few trained European car techs here, so you will be in demand if you can show you are a good worker who is great technician!

Hope this helps.
Good luck.
