The Victorian Government targets high calibre skilled migrants with skills required in Victoria through its 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.
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 visa 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 visa nomination. This ensures that Victoria’s visa 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 visa nomination.
Industry Panel advisors have priority access to incoming visa nominated migrants.
There are now openings for Industry Panel advisors in a number of industry sectors.
