Qualified Britons moving abroad

Experienced Britons reside and work overseas, studies have shown.

One in 10 Very Skilled Britons live overseas, according to a new study, as emigrants enjoy higher pay and much better health.

The research by University College London also shows countless migrants with low levels of numeracy have 1 in 10
come to the United Kingdom, although incomers are overall much more likely to possess a degree compared to native Britons.

An estimated 4.7 million British people live overseas, mainly to Australia, the USA and Canada, the study stated.

In a report, released today, lead researcher Dr John Jerrim of the UCL Institute of Education claimed "around one in 10 Skilled British people today lives overseas".

Emigrants were earning a lot more money and reported much better health than so-called UK "stayers", but were working for much longer hours.

Britons working in North America and Australia got 4,000 Usd monthly compared with roughly the same as 3,200 dollars in the UK, however they worked on average Fifty-five hours compared with 44 for stayers.

And 86% working in North America claimed highly good or excellent health, when compared with about 61% of stayers.

"Little was previously known about the work, earnings or standard of living of UK emigrants when compared to people who remain in this country," Dr Jerrim claimed.

"Overall, although there are some vital differences in regards to career routes and earnings, these are perhaps not as apparent as one might expect. It seems that, although many people move looking for a far better lifestyle abroad, this might not always be accomplished."
The study of UK emigrants, immigrants and "stayers" hinted at 684,000 highly-numerate Brits left the country between 1964 and 2011, to be replaced by an almost equivalent number of migrants with high numeracy skills.

Nevertheless about 2.4 million folks with weak number skills had came into the country, accounting for one in four working-age UK innumerate adults.

"Although immigration from south Asia has increased many highly numerate individuals to our labour force, immigration from the same place and Africa has introduced six times more individuals with poor numeracy skills to the United Kingdom compared to those with good numeracy skills," Dr Jerrim stated.
"Immigrants make up 1 in 4 of the 9.6 million working age adults living in Great Britain with poor numeracy skills. Immigration has thus had its biggest impact on the lower end of the numeracy skill distribution; it has triggered a substantial rise in the supply of low-skilled employees."

Dr Jerrim examined data on Twenty four nations collected by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The analysis focused on 7,628 UK 'stayers', 843 immigrants into the United kingdom and 1,324 emigrants, aged 16-65.
The conclusions also showed about 37% of migrants held a bachelor's degree or higher, compared with 21% of stayers.

Six Ways to Relocate to Australia

The days are gone when you simply jumped on a ship and got there.
Now things are somewhat more difficult. In this very simple and quick guide, I’ll run through 6 ways to move to Australia.

Employer Sponsored Staff
Provided you can find a supervisor who is able to give you a job opportunity, this can be the fastest way to get your first foot into Australia. It can certainly lead to a permanent residency. Work with the same business for 2 years, keep your nose clean and submit an application for residency.
This works best for approved abilities only and provided the business satisfies the government that no Aussie worker is out there for the position. For highly trained jobs it's possible to come straight in on a permanent visa, dependant upon available programmes.

Experts and other Proficient Migrants
Or the General Skilled Migration programme, as it's also known. This for those over 18 and under 45 yrs old (Update: Now 50 I believe) who speak good English. The jobs lists are somewhat of a minefield but there appears to be the Skilled Occupation List (SOL), Critical Skills List (CSL), Employer Nominated Skilled Occupation List (ENSOL) and the Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL).
Baffled? Yes. Me too. The easy answer is at the conclusion of this article, so don’t freak out.

Business People
Again, I do believe this choice is only available to those over 18 and under 45 years old (Update: Now 50 I believe). Referred to as the Business Skills Visa, you will have to establish or put money into an Australian business.
Provided that your business successfully complies with what's needed, for instance, by employing the necessary number of Aussies, this also can bring about permanent residence. I do believe investing in a business could work.

Nurses and doctors
There's a lack of both nurses and doctors and therefore there are lots of prospects for those with credentials to make the move to Australia on a permanent basis.

Investor Retirement
Finally, in case you are over 55 and without dependants, excluding your spouse, and can establish you are self financed, you'll be able to retire in Australia. You'll not receive a permanent residency but you do receive a four year visa. You can re-apply each and every time it's up for renewal and provided that you continue to fulfill the prerequisites, chances are it will be renewed.

Working Holiday Visa (WHV)
The Working Holiday Visa is obviously not permanent. However for those aged between 18 and 30 it’s an amazing method of visiting the nation to find out whether you love it. You are eligible to work for the full period if you want, although you are only able to work for a maximum of half a year with any one employer.
On the other hand, if you have a skill that is in demand here, then coming over for 12 months and showing your talent to a number of companies might result in a Employer Sponsored work offer. This may be one of the fastest ways to get here in tiny steps. Holiday Visa - Sponsored Visa - Permanent Visa.
The WHV and the similar Work and Holiday visas are solely available to passport holders from qualifying countries, at the time of writing (see the Australian Government website for updates) they are…
WHV: Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
Work and holiday: Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Thailand, Turkey and the USA.

This is not intended as the full list or even an authoritative guidebook. A couple of pages to offer you an overview is not going to tell the full story. And that’s all this is. An overview. The rules change all the time and they're extremely complicated.
As an example, the government announced a reduction in the nation’s skilled migration intake at one time. The building and manufacturing sectors were the ones hit. The thought was that corporations would need to find bricklayers, plumbers, welders and carpenters locally to fight the recession in the building trade. Besides, businesses that can’t find staff locally can still go overseas for them.
If you want to discover how complicated it all gets, head over to immi and take a look around. You can view all the latest job lists and see how the points system functions. There's a pretty good search box top right normally goes to what you have asked for.

Receiving Professional Help
And I mentioned a straightforward answer to all the difficulties earlier. Get a Migration Agent. Make sure they are MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority) listed. They know all of this stuff inside and out.
I now have such an agent working with me on this website, I’ve known him since late 2011. He's really good at exactly what he does and can give you a professional assessment based on the exhaustive info he'll ask you to provide.

Rocking Horse Organisation Backs Anglo Pacific

Twenty Five year-established Classic Rocking Horses just finished a 3rd successful delivery with Anglo Pacific. Having already sent important equine cargo to Canada and Australia, dappled-grey ‘Sabre’ just came to New Zealand - much to the delight of his new owner.

Describing Sabre as “the most spectacular rocking horse I have ever encountered”, client Alison, located in Tauranga on the North Island, was especially happy about the international removals service provided by Anglo Pacific.

“Sabre arrived in Tauranga 2-3 weeks ago and the moving agents were wonderful helping me process the important papers and paying out the customs duty here in New Zealand,” states Alison. Both delivery gents were super; they uncrated him on the truck and then brought him to the front door and in the house, positioning him in the exact same space my husband and I had decided upon after much debate. Then they proceeded to complete the unwrapping, got me to check him over and sign him off, then Sabre was basically mine."

With rates varying between £2,300 and 3,500 pounds for a Dappled Grey Classic, dependent on the size, these impressive hand crafted works of art must be managed properly.

Jean Tildesley, founder of Classic Rocking Horses, with husband Brian, says, “Anglo Pacific’s Artwork packaging service meets our business.

I can also get a concrete quotation rapidly, which is beneficial in closing a sale.”

Classic Rocking Horses has been rebuilding classic horses and creating new ones for more than twenty-five years. During that time frame they've delivered them across the globe from Norway to the Netherlands and Singapore to Shanghai, nevertheless a good number of clients naturally tend to be UK-based. Huge production isn’t ever going to be a goal, just horses of the very best quality.

Anglo Pacific Brings Extraordinary Triumph Back home from Malta

A year hunting for and 15 automobile viewings later Glyn Williams from Buckinghamshire finally located an immaculate Triumph TR4A - in Malta. Not desiring the long procedure to slip at the last hurdle, he entrusted its shipping to Anglo Pacific.

“The vehicles seen in Britain had been rebuilt, but somewhat terribly, so I wanted to look further afield,” claims engineer Glyn.“As soon as I found the 1965 TR4A promoted in Malta, I arranged up a link with the owner and after a few 50 detailed photographs, scheduled inspections and 2 months of negotiation - we agreed upon a price. It has proved, in the main, to be a superb purchase at a fair price and all I'd like now is some good weather to enjoy hood-down driving with the family. The wettest January since records began has not been kind."

Glyn chose Anglo Pacific to deal with the move as, firstly, its London Headquarters was convenient geographically for him, and secondly, he experienced great confidence after talking with Terry Horsnell, Client Manager at Anglo Pacific, a man who's been in the shipping business for Thirty years.

“Handling special freight such as Glyn’s Triumph, a car he spent a year searching for, is one of the primary reasons I truly appreciate my work at Anglo Pacific,” says Terry. “Not only do I get to oversee the safe shipping and delivery of a distinctive object from A to B, I also get to participate in a very small part in some interesting tales. I'm hoping Glyn gets many miles, and smiles, from his eye-catching ‘new’ classic automobile.”

Glyn is thankful for Terry’s commitment to the role, “Anglo Pacific confirmed to be an excellent decision as Terry has been absolutely 1st class in every respect. His attention to detail and excellent communication maintained confidence through the entire shipping and delivery process. I would have no reluctance in suggesting Anglo Pacific in the future.”

A vintage car fanatic for well over Five decades, Glyn has owned and fully rebuilt several automobiles from pre-War Rileys to T Type MGs and E Type Jaguars to Austin Healeys. His most up-to-date acquisition, the TR4A, is an uprated version of the first TR4 that was released in 1961 - uprated in the sense that it has a superior engine, independent rear suspension and small adjustments to the trim and chrome work.

The TR4A sold well, with the bulk being exported, and currently it seems there are only around Two hundred and fifty of them registered in the United Kingdom, making the TR4A much sought-after and quite hard to source in truly exceptional condition. If Glyn’s investment holds up well and is moderately trouble-free, he will pass the automobile on to his son who's a great Triumph fan.

Glyn finishes, “I don't have any plans to own any other vintage vehicles as I find them very time-consuming and expensive to maintain. However, that does not reduce my passion for these captivating old bits of machinery and my heart even so misses a beat when I see an MG TC, because it was in an MG TC, 51 years back, that my wife and I went on our honeymoon. Such superb memories.”

Cost of shipping a container from India two times as that of China, report reveals.

Shipping a container from India can cost nearly double what it costs to ship the exact same container from China, according to a report from the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India.

In a pr release , ASSOCHAM mentioned the standard cost of shipping a container from India could be almost $1,200. The very same container from China would ship no less than $600, and for just $400 from Singapore, placing Indian exporters at a competitive disadvantage in the international industry.

There are a lot of reasons for the greater charges, the group mentioned. One is that port efficiency in India lags behind much of the rest of the world. A ship’s turnaround time at India’s largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru, is nearly 36 hours, while at the main sea ports of Shanghai, Singapore, and Dubai, it is below 12 hours, according to ASSOCHAM. India’s sea ports in addition have increased cargo-handling costs than those other nations.

Further driving up rates is India’s 2-tiered tax system, which leads to items being taxed when they transit state as well as national borders. The govt of newly selected Pm Narendra Modi is trying to alter the system by scrapping the two-tier system and changing it with a consistent nationwide tax.

Container charges are largely a factor of demand and supply of shipping capacity, however other factors such as ease of access and landside costs might also figure into the overall costs.

ASSOCHAM also noted the amount of stops a truck needs to make as another factor pushing up prices. There are currently 177 highway checkpoints and another 268 toll plazas on India’s roads, and toll lane automation is actually nonexistent.

A imbalance in hinterland national infrastructure is another factor. As reported by the World Bank, 63.7 percent of China’s roadways are paved, compared to 53.8 % in India.

China and India have fragmented, unconsolidated trucking markets that make savings through economies of scale challenging to obtain. C.H. Robinson has predicted that 99 % of trucks in China belong to individuals or families. In India, the logistics provider reports 80 percent of trucks are run by small companies.

The more advanced national infrastructure in China has made up for the governmental meddling and fractured trucking market that define both nations. The final result, ASSOCHAM stated, is a major difference in the costs of international shipping from India and China.

Prime Minister Modi’s government appears to be aware of these problems, and has begun to take steps to improve things. Early this month, ground was broken on part of the Sagar Mala infrastructure upgrade at the Jawaharlal Nehru port. Modi has additionally instructed the Ministry of Shipping to make Sagar Mala its principal priority, as reported by the Times of India .

The Sagar Mala project aims to improve India’s growth through the interlinking of sea ports via the continuing development of road, rail and seaway connections. In addition, it requires investments aimed towards expanding port capacity and productiveness.

Accompanying the order to the Ministry of Shipping was one to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. That order requested for the development of a task force to examine automation at Indian toll plazas and checkpoints with the target of minimizing setbacks and the amount of overloaded trucks on Indian roads. Automation of toll roads was one of several solutions suggested by ASSOCHAM to lessen shipping costs.
