High Demand for British Trades in Australia

18 August 2005

Australia is currently undergoing its largest immigration drive in 40 years, tempting workers to the country with promises of shorter hours, a better climate and a lower cost of living. Europe – and especially the UK – is the main target.

Under the current programme, Australia will offer immigrants four-year employer or state-sponsored immigration, with the option to stay on permanently.

If you are under 45, and have 6-7 years experience in your trade – inclusive of training/apprenticeship/study - we can almost certainly get you a visa – even if you cannot pass the current points test!

Most Australian states are experiencing a labor shortage of qualified and experienced trades people. If your occupation is in the following list, please complete an assessment form and we will email you the details of your best Australian visa options within three working days. This assessment is free of charge – if you are interested in taking up a laid back lifestyle in sunny Australia, don't delay!
