Skills Australia Needs 25-27 February 2012 in London

This month the department is hosting a Skills Australia Needs event in London from February 25-27. It will be one of our largest. We expect around 1400 skilled workers as invited participants to attend.

Skilled workers in engineering and trades will be given the chance to hear from the department about skilled visa options for Australia and to discuss employment and sponsorship opportunities with 28 engineering and trades exhibitors on 25-26 February. The weekend will be followed by an information evening on February 27, featuring 17 exhibitors seeking medical and other healthcare professionals whose skills are also in high demand in Australia.

The department has successfully coordinated Skills Australia Needs events for a number of years in various countries to provide information to skilled workers about skilled visa options for Australia. The events recognise the important contribution of skilled migrants to Australia’s productivity and economic growth by helping to fill critical skill shortages in areas of occupational demand in Australia.

The events also help Australian employers to address specific skill needs they are unable to fill through the Australian labour market by matching them with pre-screened skilled workers in targeted occupations.

Interested skilled workers are invited to attend based on their qualifications and experience in these targeted occupations and their likelihood of meeting Australia’s skilled visa requirements.

More information about Skills Australia Needs events for both skilled workers and employers is available on the department’s website www.immi.gov.au/skillevents/

Hi there
I just received an email which inform me I could not attend in this event, while attending is very important for me .
Do you think , is there any other chance for me ??


Hi Davood,

Thanks for commenting. If you do not receive an invitation, this does not necessarily mean you are not eligible to migrate. Due to the limited number of places available, invitations can only be sent to those whose experience and qualifications most strongly meet the skilled visa requirements for Australia and the targeting for the event. You may be interested in viewing this video on skilled migration to Australia on our immiTV channel at: http://youtu.be/tfFMFHPSkyQ. We also have upcoming changes to the application process from 1 July 2012, for more information please visit: www.skillselect.gov.au
