Hi Everyone. So I thought I'd add an introductions forum so we have a place for our latest members to say hi! ?️ 

To get the ball rolling, I thought I better introduce myself. 

So hi everyone! The names Mark, and I'm the chap who runs this little place on the web. 

Getting Down Under started as a personal blog all the way back in 2006 and since this initial launch, our website has continued to grow. 

Back in 2006 time, our family which comprised of myself,  ‘the missus’ (at the time) and our then,  4-year-old son starting to prepare for a one one-way journey of a lifetime.

For me, what is really important is that you as a member of our community, you know that you are not alone in your journey!

I genuinely hope myself and our other community members can make your own journey down under a really smooth one ? 

All the best

Mark ?

Hello Everyone, 

My name is Scott and I have recently received confirmation from Engineers Australia that both my qualifications and work experience assessments have given me full visa points and along with current IELTS results, I have 55points. Therefore thought it would be a great idea to join the forum, as our dream life is one step closer, and more detailed information and correspondence is now required.

Mark

This is a great site, with loads of up to-date information, well done on a quality site, look forward to using it on a daily basis now.

Regards

Scott

Howdy! My name is Will Cohn. I stumbled across your website and am grateful to have found it, but I don't know if you will be Mark because I have a TON of questions. It says that this is for intros only so where could I go to post about where I am in the process, and to ask all of my questions?

Thanks for making the site!

Hi Mark

What a great site. We are fellow Brits in the (very long) process of making a move to Australia and stumbled across your website. We are currently waiting for the Skills Assessment to come back. We had a bit of a blow today & it looks like the company that was going to sponsor us no longer can due to tighter restrictions during the pandemic. So we will be searching for new sponsorship. We do have a migration employment company helping but it will be really helpful to read of any success stories during these crazy times. 
Michelle & Gary
