From Dubai to Australia: Former Pinoy kitchen helper fast-tracks success

A former service crew member in a local bakery in the Philippines unexpectedly found success when he came across an ad on LinkedIn about a job opening in Australia.

Filipino vlogger Abroadero, known to his fans and followers as Kuya Robbie, shared in one of his blog entries how he was able to move and find a job in Australia while working in Dubai.

In one of his vlogs, Robbie said that he decided to fly to Dubai to work as a kitchen helper in 2008 after working in the Philippines for some time.

After 8 years of working in Dubai, he decided to go to Australia and start a new career.

“It was around middle of 2015 while we are in Dubai my best friend John saw an ad in LinkedIn about a job opening in Australia through Ausphin. Ausphin is a company in Sydney related to Training and Employment,” Robbie wrote in his blog.

Robbie said in a separate YouTube video that he was able to gain entry to Australia with the 402 visa also known as the Training and Research Visa.

According to the Department of Home Affairs of the Australian Government, the 402 visa allows its holder to “take part in structured workplace-based training to enhance your skills in your current occupation, area of tertiary study, or field of expertise; participate in a professional development training program in Australia after being invited to do so Professional Development stream; and observe or participate in an Australian research project after being invited to do so.”

Robbie said that he decided to apply for such type of visa because he wants to enhance his skills in cooking. He added that he will still be able to receive salary just like a normal employee even though he is considered a trainee.

The Filipino vlogger further explained the terms and conditions of the said visa in his YouTube video.

He said that in order to attain such visa type, an applicant must get in touch with a company or agency who will sponsor him/her. The company or agency is usually the one who will facilitate the training or the one who will look for a training facility for the applicant.

Robbie also said in his blog post that as of November 2016, 402 visas have been replaced by 407 visas. 407 visa now requires its applicants to take and pass the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or other international standardized test for English proficiency.
