Birmingham heads downunder!!
jobs across Australia will be on offer when a leading emigration to Australia expo comes to Birmingham this month.
Down Under Live will be back at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, for the fourth successive year, as it cements its place as the biggest jobs and emigration event in Birmingham.
Australia needs skilled workers ; an estimated 500,000 in Western Australia alone, as the resources boom continues to create job opportunities across the state. There are significant shortages of healthcare workers, skilled engineers and tradespeople which means that the West Midlands is a fertile recruiting ground for Australian companies.
Some of the region’s last remaining coal miners leaving closure-threatened Daw Mill are swapping the frozen Midlands for new jobs underground – in sun-soaked Australia.Around a dozen miners at Daw Mill Colliery, near Coleshill, are opting for jobs downunder at the home of the world’s biggest coal producer.
Since 2009, Down Under Live has helped hundreds of emigrants make the move from the Midlands, and this year promises to be more popular than ever.
The key for a successful move overseas is to get independent, trusted advice and that is what visitors to Down Under Live can get from their day at the show. Staged in a friendly and helpful atmosphere, each day features over 6 hours of dedicated presentations on emigrating, with the aim of providing answers to the hundreds of questions potential migrants have.
Every aspect of the emigration process is covered, from shipping your goods, to where the best schools are, so that visitors will leave with a plan for starting their new life. Hundreds of job opportunities will also be on display, as well as the opportunity to talk to recruiters and employers, and experts with long experience of helping people to emigrate will staff over 20 stands that visitors can browse during the day.
Down Under Live will be at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull on the 23rd and 24th February 2013. Tickets are £10 in advance, or £15 on the door. Children under 16 go free. Visit www.downunderlive.co.uk for more information.
