489 to 887 Help please

Can anyone tell me please if the 12 month working requirement of the 489 visa has to be consecutive weeks. My husband is a bricklayer and some weeks does 35 or more hours and other weeks doesn’t. I also have the option to be main application on 887 but as I have a two week roster only one of the two weeks do I work more than 35 hours which isn’t an issue if you don’t need 12 months consecutive work as I would of met the work requirement at a similar time to the living requirement. Anyone that has any information on this would be greatly appreciated as most agents want a consultation to answer this question so am hoping someone been through situation and knows many thanks

Bricklayers don’t like working for free either.

The following information is freely available:

Full time work means 35 hours per week. You can combine work in concurrent part-time employment to satisfy this requirement. You can work in your nominated occupation or any other occupation.

To check if a specific applicant meets the work requirement I would also require a paid consultation. It would be irresponsible to advise someone without properly assessing the situation.
