Australia is experiencing an unprecedented labour shortage due to the boom in the Mining industry.  The demand for skilled workers in the mining and construction areas is depleting other parts of Australia of skilled workers.

Additionally, there is a pressing need for qualified health care workers across the country.

Recruit overseas talent

An Employer Sponsored Visa is a reasonably quick way to secure a visa.  This may be on a temporary or permanent basis.  An reputable business can be approved to sponsor a suitably skilled employee to work for them.  This usually occurs when vacancies cannot be filled from the local market – and domestic recruitment  is becoming increasingly difficult for Australian businesses.

Recently, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship has made some changes to the Employer Sponsored Migration Scheme, including speeding up of processing times for applications.
