High Demand for Carpenters in Australia
Skilled Occupation List 2016 - Carpenters
Carpenters are currently listed on the Skilled Occupation List for Australia meaning there’s never been a better time to apply via a Skilled Independent Visa to live and work in Australia.
Statistically, the employment rate for carpenters in Australia has increased slightly in the past ten years or so and increased moderately in the past five years. This might not seem too impressive but, given that other professions and industries aren't doing so well, it's an indication that carpenters are on the right track. In future years to come, experts believe that carpenters will have even more job opportunities in Australia, with the number of job openings rising up to more than 50,000 until 2019.
Carpenter jobs in Australia
Carpentry in Australia is an important occupation that consists of almost 124,000 workers as of November 2015. This reflects the fact that carpenters can be employed in numerous industries (including construction, manufacturing, and technical services) and that they can find work in almost any state in Australia. New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland are some of the best places for carpenters to look for work since these areas have high employment rates for this profession.

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!
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.
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.
We have all settled in well in Oz. We have now been here a year and loving it. Thanks.
They explained each process of the application and kept us up-to-date on what was happening at each stage; telling us when we needed to be doing things and in what order – they made the whole process very straight forward.

We have arrived in Brisbane safely, goods and all!! Been here since September and loving it so far. Thankfully our house was not damaged in anyway by the floods, although we have been involved in Volunteering to help clean up after the floods (that was an experience!). Thanks again.
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.
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.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so pleased and there have been a few tears this morning, including my family. Phew! Superbly professional.
