Looking to Move and Work in Australia?

Australia is a beautiful country with pristine beaches, beautiful oceans, the Great Barrier Reef and of course, the Outback. Much curiosity surrounds this nation “down under” and it is the subject of a great amount of literature and intrigue. What many don’t realize is that they have a good program for those who are skilled tradesmen and want to move there.

To aid and assist those wishing to immigrate, there’s a point system used to see if you qualify, as well as a list of skilled occupations to choose from. Of course, if you know someone in Australia, that can be a good resource for how to move forward. It’s much easier to move there if you know someone or if you can get a business owner to sponsor you. The country is always looking for skilled professionals in a wide variety of occupations.

The Careers Australia RTO works with The Queensland Department of Education to assist and also to train those interested in moving to Australia to work. Their main focus is to ensure that workers are skilled in specific trades that would strengthen the Australian workforce. They have a list of trades that show exactly the types of jobs in high demand called the Skilled Occupation List (SOL). This list is derived from the ANZSCO (Australia and New Zealand Skilled Classification of Occupations) and uses those same codes to classify trades.

Once you find an occupation from their list where you have experience, you can apply for a General Skilled Migration visa. Over the years, many professionals have established organizations that help others who wish to immigrate to Australia. One of these is Malcolm Richards, the CEO of Master Electricians. He works with the Queensland State government and the Electrical Trades Union to assist electricians who would like to make the move to Australia.

Though there is a program of training and certification to become an electrician in Australia, people like Malcolm Richards work to make the transition go much smoother. As with many other countries, Australia is looking for workers who are qualified to help the nation convert to greener forms of energy. This includes specialists in solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal and other new technologies.
