Hi Everyone-Considering the move

Hi All,

Im glad I have found this forum

I am a single guy in my 30s and I am strongly consdiering moving to aus on a 5 year migration visa with a view to staying on a permanent basis.

I went over to melbourne for a 3 week holiday from Ireland and absoluetly loved the place,I was there to visit my brother and his girlfriend who is actually an ozzy herself

I myself am working in a permanent position with a major pharma company as a lab technician/QC Chemist

Its a good job and I earn a decent wage, I cleared 50k after tax last year but that included a fair bit of overtime and shift percentage

Its difficult to leave a good job in these recessionary times, but Im single,have no children and no mortage so why not,I only have myself to look after

I would appreciate some advice on how to start proceedings and I would also like to know what my earning potential for my career is in aus, I am considering doing a post grad in metalurgy when I get over as I heard this is a much sought after career

Any glad to be here

Hi Shadow...

You are considering the appropriate decision of migrating to australia. Before you start anything I would advice that you should visit Department of Immigration & Citizenship and get as much information as you can such as the ielts requirments and whether you need to assess your skills and so on.

hahahaha Yep, sometimes you wouldn't get the response you need. When you say you are working as lab tech, do you mean pathologist? Pathologist are in extremely high demand in Australia and you are looking at anywhere from $23 for an assistant/ sample collector to $50p/h for mater. This translates to around $55K per anum for lower positions to $90K-ish and up for higher level positions.

Above numbers are ex overtime. this also doesn't include the 9% employer contribution to your super (read pension). Ex tax.

If you are intending to migrate Sydney and Mebourn are an excellent choice, you will probably start at lower scale of pay and move up as your experience in Australia improves. On average it takes less 12-24 months to get to your Irish income level (and this is just a guide and can differ massively from person to person).

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.
