The Department will host Skills Australia Needs information sessions on October 6 in Berlin, Germany and October 8-9 in Athens, Greece.
These information sessions will provide an opportunity for skilled workers in Germany and Greece to hear about skilled visa options and possible sponsorship and employment opportunities in Australia.
Skills Australia Needs events help address current skill shortages in areas of occupational demand in Australia, particularly health care, engineering and select trade occupations.
The department has staged these events for a number of years in various countries to provide information to skilled workers about skilled visa options for Australia, with a focus on matching skilled workers with Australian state and territory governments and employers in target occupational areas.
To be eligible to attend these events, interested skilled workers must have qualifications and experience in one of the occupations targeted, a high level of English language ability and be under 50 years of age.
Australian employers in the fields of health care, engineering or specified trades with current job vacancies they are unable to fill through the Australian labour market, who are interested in attending are encouraged to visit the department’s website to register their interest.
More information about the Skills Australia Needs events for both skilled workers and employers is available on the department’s website: www.immi.gov.au/skillexpos/
