Where have you tried so far mate? Do a run of Lawrence Drive in Nerang and you'll get either fed up of asking, ....or a job. Are you familiar with BMWs? My mate is a mechanic at Bruce Lynton's BMW in Southport. I could ask him if you want as they might like the pommie accent?

Just don't mention the war

Mart. Just spot to my mate Des at Bruce Lynton. He reckons everywhere is a bit slow at this time of year so your timing is oretty bad but regardless of that, go to the Southport Bruce Lynton shoroom and ask for the service manager. Arm yourself with a resume and full experience and give him the I LOVE BMWs talk. Des reckon they're always looking for techs and there might be a shake up soon with some openings. Also, he reckons to try Honda as well (he has his finger on the pulse in this industry!) as he reckons that is the cushiest palce on the coast - top dollars and least amount of work / skill required. Get out there mate!

hmm, full experience would be pretty hard as i never really got the chance to get into a proper garage, only working on farm equipment and personal vehicles but even so, i still believe i'm a quick learner and good worker. so i have some experience but im not sure what you would class afull experience, but i'll try!

04-12-2006, 09:13 PM
Mate, you sound eager enough to me just the way you type, half the time that's enough. If you show you're eager to learn and a good worker you'll be over half way there mate.

05-12-2006, 02:31 PM
ok, Honda and BMW il certainly try with, i have a civic coupe back home and im kinda a Honda-head, and BMW i like a lot, so, yeah we'll see, just need transport first, and my money isnt being sent over from the UK, bloody argh!

05-12-2006, 02:49 PM
Where about on the Coast are you?

05-12-2006, 03:58 PM
just below hope island, in the goddam sticks, but im going to buy my own car soon to get around rather than borrow the bloody ute all the time, why?

05-12-2006, 04:37 PM
Just making sure you were up the North End mate as a trip from Tweed to Southport would be a fucker every day. Boykambil area yea? If you wanted an immediate start job have you considered Ozkat's offer of getting a job at Riviera? It's just up the road from you near Dreamworld. Ok, it's boat building but starting out on the Gold Coast ain't easy and a job is a job to start with.

05-12-2006, 04:50 PM
it sounds promising, but its trouble getting there, if it is weekend work i should be ok and be able to borrow the ute, il email him

08-12-2006, 01:28 PM
ok, does anyone own a garage or workshop in the gold coast that needs anyone for anything?

18-12-2006, 08:23 PM
at all?

18-12-2006, 10:47 PM

18-12-2006, 11:24 PM

Mate, you'll find out pretty soon that on the Gold Coast you take any job to get your feet on the ground. Once you're working the job you are looking for will rock up. Trust me. I was cleaning school toilets for two hours a day when I first got here from England and I have experienceand qualifications in a lot of things!
