The Overseas Skills Registry is a new online service making it easier for overseas skilled workers who have skills in demand to connect with Victorian employers.
The registry is designed to broaden overseas skilled workers’ local networks, and support them to access job interviews and employment.
Using the registry, overseas skilled workers can create an online profile of their professional skills, qualifications and work experience. Victorian employers can access the registry and connect with individuals who have the skills and expertise they require.
The registry is open to Victorian nominated skilled migrants, international student graduates with previous professional work experience, and eligible overseas qualified professionals who have entered Victoria under any visa category. To be eligible to use the registry, candidates must:
- be living in Victoria with a work visa
- have an Australian skills assessment or Australia qualifications
- have skills in demand in Victoria
Eligible individuals can register to create a profile on the Overseas Skills Registry and start connecting with Victorian employers.
