5 Top Reasons Carpenters Moved to Sydney 

If you’re a carpenter or joiner by trade who is thinking about moving to Sydney, New South Wales, but you’re still unsure, here are five reasons why you should bite the bullet and make the move ‘down under’.

The team at Overseas Emigration Visas are some of the best in the industry and every year we help skilled trade workers migrate to Australia by securing Skilled Independent Visas (subclass 189), Skilled Sponsored visas (subclass 190), and Skilled Regional Visas (subclass 489).

We have a number of partners in the trade industry such as the Down Under Centre, who will be able to help you with your Trade Skills Test, and employers who are always on the lookout for carpenter and joiners to join teams working on projects in Sydney and other cities across Australia.

After reviewing these tips on why you should consider making the move to Sydney, feel free to get in touch and speak to one of our MARA approved Migration Agents. You never know, you may well be eligible for a skilled sponsored visa for Australia.

  1. Carpenters and Joiners are on the top ten most in-demand occupations in Australia for 2015/16. With the shortage of skilled trade workers, there is an abundance of work to be found, due to high demand for the specialised skills.
  2. The yearly salary you can earn as a carpenter in Australia is much higher than that of other developed countries. Despite the higher living costs that initially may come as a shock, a completely comfortable lifestyle can be maintained, with many opportunities for saving and business development.
  3. There is a dedicated carpentry association set up in Australia (Carpentry Australia), a representative body that acts as the national voice of the industry and offers support for further qualifications, apprenticeships and business ownership.
  4. Due to the nature of the trade, there are plenty of opportunities to travel whilst pursuing work. Australia is a large and beautiful country, with some stunning sights to visit. Many skilled trade workers backpack throughout the country, travelling from city to city, seeking new experiences whilst earning a living.
  5. Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and the most densely populated city in Australia. It is also the most famous and is therefore continually growing and being developed. The expansion of the city requires skilled trades workers to fuel growth, and contribute to new buildings, commercial and residential developments.

    – Karen Johnson, Canada
  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • We’ll keep you updated about how we get on but for now Lin and I would like to sincerely thank you, Richard, Magda and everyone else at OE who have made the process of getting our visas so straightforward for us. You are all so professional and we have felt at every stage that we are in the best hands possible. Your customer service is truly outstanding!
    – Scott McKenzie, Australia
  • Currently we have been staying in Thailand since before Christmas and in 5 weeks we travel to Australia to arrive at the same time as our personal effects. We can’t wait! Again – many thanks to everyone for everything!
    – Maxine Warhurst & Family, Australia
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • All going well. Thank you, after all the work that was put in from your office with regards our emigration we cannot thank you enough, again many thanks for everything!
    – Michael Coombes, Australia
  • Thanks so much for all of your help and support with my application. Everyone there has been so responsive every time we’ve contacted you, it really does make a difference. I should refer our estate agent back in Edinburgh to you for some tips on customer communication! And we certainly would recommend to anyone thinking of making the move to contact the team at OE.

  • Thank you so so much and everybody at OE for everything. We are over the moon! We are all in shock and there are tears! Thank you again.
