Skilled Workers Needed In Brisbane

Queensland is known as Australia’s sunniest State and is famous for areas of outstanding beauty such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsunday Islands and the Daintree. With Queensland’s main city, Brisbane, enjoying 283 days of sunshine per year, who wouldn’t want to live there? Brisbane is a thriving metropolis, a premier business destination and an incredibly modern city complete with fantastic international transport links so it’s no wonder that Brisbane has a huge expat population - including lots of Brits! A glance at Queensland’s Skilled Occupations List will also reveal the amount of skilled work there is to be had should a skilled migrant wish to move to Australia.

Cost Of Living In Brisbane

Brisbane and its surrounding areas offer a great quality of life for expats moving to Australia. From stunning parklands and beaches to all the amenities of a modern city, life in Brisbane and its suburbs is pretty sweet! Another reason Brisbane attracts expats to its shores is the fact that it’s fairly affordable in comparison to cities such as Sydney. In Brisbane a reasonably sized property should cost you $1,938 per month and a monthly travel card should be around $150 - which may make Londoners weep when they convert the price!

Schools in Queensland

Schooling is free for Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents in Queensland which makes it an attractive option for expats considering a long term move to Australia. However Temporary Visa holders may encounter some differing costs, so make sure you do your research before you commit to moving your family to Australia as every State has different rules when it comes to schools.

  • 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.
    – Elaine, Kevin and Kim Lawrence, Brisbane, Australia
  • 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
  • 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
