Employer Sponsorship

If you nominate an occupation on the ‘Priority Skilled Occupation’ list, as an employee you will be given priority processing. If you are an employer suffering from a skills shortage in your business, sponsoring skilled workers from overseas is an excellent option to grow your business by providing you with the help you need.

This will apply to employer-sponsored nomination and visa applications, now and in the future, which will allow businesses and migrants to have certainty that eligible nominations and applications will be assessed ahead of other applications.

Many businesses are suffering from a skills shortage but there is a type of visa which, even during the pandemic, allows employers to hire workers from overseas.

The Temporary Skills Shortage Visa (subclass 482) is designed to fill positions in Australia that have not been filled by locals in industries where there is a shortage of available job seekers and is one of the very few categories under which a migrant can apply for a travel exemption to get into Australia.

Labour Agreements

A Labour Agreement (LA) is a formal contract entered into between the Commonwealth and an Australian business where the business is authorised to recruit overseas workers. A Labour Agreement is designed to provide a flexible solution to support Australian businesses where standard temporary or permanent skilled visa programs are not available, and the employer’s recruitment needs cannot be met through the Australian labour market.

Many industries can utilise labour-hire or recruitment companies to source overseas workers, and such companies can be based in Australia or overseas.  While the use of these companies can be an efficient and cost-effective method to source workers, it is quite a complicated process to use this program.

Australia’s Unemployment Rate Plummets Again

Australia’s unemployment rate has dropped once more, falling 0.4 percentage points to 5.1 per cent in May 2021.

New data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that approximately 115,000 Australians found work between April and May, radically lowering the unemployment rate.

Australia’s unemployment rate is now the same as it was in February 2020, just prior to the economic damage wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic with 1 million jobs created since then.

The declining unemployment rate continues to align with the strong increases in job vacancies that has rocketed Australia to become the world’s leading economy.
