HEY YOU! Ever wondered if your job is listed as a scarce skill in Australia?

Is your job listed as a scarce skill in Australia?

Australia might be looking for you!  Did you know that your skills and knowledge might be in demand in Australia?  Have you considered a fantastic life style, great career opportunities and access to a First World life style is probably within your reach is you occupation is in demand in Australia?

In a bid to stimulate economic growth and progression the Australian government has identified several occupations that are not being filled by the local Australian workforce.


For this purpose the government annually revises a list of occupations that it deems necessary to be filled in order to create local jobs and it is often the case that these specialist occupations cannot be filled by local talent and skilled migrants are then sought after to fill these gaps.

Thoroughly selected skilled, qualified and experienced migrants are granted visas to live and work in Australia in exchange for their contribution of skills and knowledge.

How it works – according to Australia’s Department of Immigration

Applicants must nominate an occupation from the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) if you are applying for an Independent or Family Sponsored Points Tested visa or a Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) – Graduate Work Stream.

Those who require a skills assessment as part of their visa application must contact a relevant assessing authority directly to obtain a skill assessment. The assessing authority will provide all necessary applications forms and associated information relating to the assessment.
