Australia is looking at foreigners to fill their best paying jobs

Migrants qualified and experienced in fields listed on the Skillselect list enjoy preference in obtaining their 457 Australian work visas, and as it turns out, now it seems they are also up for some of the best paying jobs Australia has to offer.

Australia Is Looking At Foreigners To Fill Their Best Paying Jobs

According to a new study the highest paid professionals earn more than $2,000 per week or $104,000 per year and these are mostly medical occupations including Anaesthetists, topping the list with 88.3% of those in the field earning over $2,000 per week. They are closely followed by a range of other medical specialists.

According to the Immigration Australia the following medical specialist are all listed on the Skillselect list;

Specialist Physician (General Medicine)
Clinical Haematologist
Medical Oncologist
Intensive Care Specialist
Renal Medicine Specialist
Thoracic Medicine Specialist
Specialist Physicians
Surgeon (General)
Cardiothoracic Surgeon
Orthopaedic Surgeon
Paediatric Surgeon
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
Vascular Surgeon
Emergency Medicine Specialist
Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

Interestingly it is not always the case that high paid occupations are always the academic professional occupations. Many trade and non-academic professionals earn just as well as their Anaesthesiologist with some of the highest paid occupation being drilling miners and shot firers where 43.8% command an income of more than $2,000 per week.

Electrical draftspersons and crane hoist and lift operators also earn well above normal wages.

But, the study also found that those earning higher incomes were also putting in longer than normal office hours.

The relationship between hours worked and incomes generally holds true, so those occupations that had higher incomes (managers, machinery operators and drivers, technicians and trade workers) generally worked longer hours.
