I went a few years ago and did everything through Usit. As far as I can remember they did it through visa first. After looking it up and they do one year working visas in 48 hours. Have a look at visafirst.com

I was in Oz working a few years ago and got me Visa through Visafirst, fairly straight forward. he will have no probs getting work as a carpenter, my H2B is a carpenter and had loads of work out there, even his friend who wasnt a carpenter got work as a chippy out there!!
