Jobs in demand in Australia.
Australia welcomes skilled professionals and trades people who have experience in their line of work. In fact, the country’s immigration programme has a special resource – SkillSelect – for people looking to move to and work in Australia.
Before you decide to apply for your visa, it would be wise to do your research and find out if:
1. Your profession or skills are in demand
2. You can find a job/employer willing to sponsor you
So how do you go about finding out what jobs are in demand Australia?
A good (and reliable) way to start is by looking up the official Australian immigration website (http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/sol).
While the jobs range from highly technical to experience-based, here’s a broad list of jobs that are in demand:
• Managers and administrators
• Professionals in:
• Health professionals
o life sciences
o natural and physical sciences
• Education professionals
• Trades Persons
o metal workers and mechanical
o electrical and electronic
o building and plumbing
• Food preparation professionals
The professions listed above are just some of the options available.
Once this step’s complete, the next is to find a sponsor. You can either find a sponsor yourself, or you can use SkillSelect.
By lodging an expression of interest in SkillSelect, you allow Australian employers to see your qualifications and employment history.
If your qualifications and experience are found to meet an employer’s requirements, they can then contact you if they are interested in offering you a position.
Alternatively, you could opt for a regional visa, where a near relative living in the designated area may sponsor you.
