I am a electrical contractor in New Zealand. If you are interested in work in New zealad or Australia try looking on the following url seek.co.nz .This is a job agancy in NZ that lists jobs both in NZ and Aus . I know there is a shortage of good electricans in the mining and industrial fields in Australia and they are paying top dollar for sparkys . You could also try your local ADECCO employment agents " these folks are world wide and handle international jobs . I got work through them in Australia .

I am an apprentice electrician from Seattle. I am nearing the end of my 5 year apprenticeship and considering opportunities outside the U.S. I've done mostly large scale commercial work, including remodeling several Microsoft facilities. I'm a union member, and would like to know if their are opportunities to work overseas as a union electrician.

My husband called them and talked to them, they are Non-Union and only pay about $17/hrs. you would only make about $80,000/year. We are in Moses Lake, WA and lots of Union Jobs with IBEW 191 available. Jobs are great here right now and he is making more than that at the moment, not worth risking your life. Plus no retirement and health insurance paid.

Jeff in Houston, Texas said: I am also an IBEW member out of 861 Lake Charles La. Does Washington State require a state license? I would like to work there.

Yeah, WA requires a license. As mentioned above there are several reciprocal states, but it doesn't look like yours is one of them.

I know there was some talk of letting IBEW folks transfer into our apprenticeship after Katrina, and if you know enough you can test out to skip some or all of our 5 years of school, but you'll still need 8000 hours to work as a journeyman, and hours worked in non-reciprocal states don't count. On the bright side, stating apprentice wages in Local 46 are over $18.

kbr is another extension of haliburton which is just about ran by yes the dick himself dick cheney, if you want to make his pockets fatter the go ahead and work for them but i was contacted by them alos and they only offered the most $84,000 for the year and you work just about 7/12's for bout 3 months straight and they will match plane ticket home up to the first $800.00. and no they do not pay any benefits that a normal union member working in the states would get so you pretty much are on your own out there, no representation at all. i could work nonunion not that i would and work that many hours in the states and make that much and not worry about getting killed by some iraqi. best bet is just hit the road and you could make in the upwards of $90-$100,000 for the year as a union memeber. lets support america and our troops not the dumbasses who got our troops there in the first place.

Thanks Jordan for the note I agree with you about the Dick. Back in 04 when all the travelers were comming home and they had killed the economy I went to Iraq rather than work for the rat at home. I lived directly with the solders and kept there lights on and there ac running as best as I could. Our people in uniform had very few comforts as these were not the megga camps and they were not there by choice but were sent.
I don't agree with most politics but I would go back again for the solders. If I can let me put this into words. You will never come home from any job with a greater feeling of satisfaction Knowing you didn't talk about how tuff it must be for those solders but you put your hand to the plow and made a difference, with your knollage of the trade, your sweat and your hands. It tells those solders that are in harms way yes I do care.
I do hope no one is afended by my note. Jeff

its tax free after you made $100k or so in the states there are many things that they dont tell you and you find out later after you are already there make sure you read all the fine print. kbr figured out how to get third party nationals to do the jobs also or else usually its in the range of
$100k-$150k with most companies

Mister Owen,
Work here is slow that is why I'm looking to go overseas. If you want to give your expertise away for real low wages you can find a little work but I found out a longtime ago that if you settle for less they will always work you for less.

It depends on the state. Some states do not require any license at all, so you would be able to work in those states no prob. Most states have rather strict requirements. For example, here in Washington State for your hours to count towards the 8000 required to work as an 01 journeyman electrician you need to have earned them in this state or one of the few states that reciprocates hours with us. I don't know where you'd look to find the states with no licensing requirements, but I'd expect they're also the lowest paying places.
