The Victorian Government targets high calibre skilled migrants with skills required in Victoria through its state visa nomination program. Employers experiencing recruitment difficulties can access these experienced, highly employable migrants to fill ongoing vacancies. State nominated visa holders generally have permanent residency and are either already in Victoria, or making plans to relocate.
State visa nomination is also an option for employers who have employed eligible overseas skilled workers on temporary visas and are unable to sponsor them for permanent residency.
To access potential state nominated skilled migrants or discuss options for permanent residency for workers with restricted work rights, employers can:
Industry Panel advisors provide feedback and assessment on applications for Victorian state visa nomination. This ensures that Victoria’s state nominated migrants are a good fit with the needs of the local labour market, as only skilled migrants with highly sought occupations, and those with a strong likelihood of finding work in Victoria’s labour market, are selected for state visa nomination.
Industry Panel advisors have priority access to incoming state nominated migrants.
There are now openings for Industry Panel advisors in a number of industry sectors.
