masonry comp. in SA,Vic or TAS

I used the search function but I didn't find any links which catch my search.
I am a Bricklayer, and this job is on the MODL list. I am looking for a larger company to sponsor me, as I believe they are more willing to have applicants from overseas and one of the Visa conditions is that the company must have had 10 full time employees in the last 2 business years.
Would anyone be able to give me a few names of larger masonry companies, which have a location in South Australia, Victoria or Tasmania. I prefer to work in one of these 3 states, as then I will be eligible for more points through immigration.
Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the forum wanting and bricklayers is probably a bit of tough one like other building trades re sponsorship for with most building here, even industrial and commercial, a lot of work is done by contractors and sub-contractors and so most bricklaying gangs will usually comprise less than ten in number.

AVJennings - Home is one of the long time major home building companies that was initially in just Victoria but has over years expanded a bit.
They'll also likely work on using contractors these days rather than direct employees but they as much as any company ought to have a handle on who are larger bricklaying contractors and re what workloads and lead times are may be able to give you a guide as to any that may sponsor.

A lot of maintenance for major industrial plants, paper mills, power stations etc. is also now done via contract with major trades based companies and though bricking is not a huge maintenance area, could be worth trying - Simon Engineering - Engineering, operations and maintenance service provider being one such company and SKILLED being another contract type company that in past has just contracted people themselves but that may have changed as they look to pick up major longer term contracts.

And then if you google around using words like "Bricklaying Contractors", "Maintenance Contractors", Building Contractors etc., you should be able to get an idea of what's about.

Like just about any country right now, there's been a downturn in activities though building is still reasonably strong courtesy of government having a first home buyers $21,000 grant but even if you found a sponsor you'd find that staying here will be dependent on the sponsor having work and keeping you employed.

Good luck
