The top cities in Australia – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane – are universally acknowledged to be some of the most liveable cities in the world. Add to it the high standards of working conditions and scope for lucrative careers and it is not difficult to understand why there is a flow of dedicated traffic of skilled labour to the country from all over the world.
However, there is a lot of demand internally too for skilled labour with very clear cut definitions put in place by the Australian Government. Job seekers in this category can access one of the numerous sites that list out vacancies in the country or they can send their resumes to professional agencies who are experts in this field. Companies that want to avoid going through the tedious recruitment process leave it in the hands of these agencies who actually act as a bridge between potential employers and employees.
An example will prove this point. A company wanting skilled labour hire in Melbourne can approach these job hire agencies that will draw from their bank of resumes, complete the initial screening and interviewing process and send the most suitable candidates for final selection to the company. It’s that simple. So the best option for you to get hired and advance your career as a skilled labourer is to have your name registered with a reputed hiring agency.
If you want to know whether your expertise in a particular field falls within the ambit of skilled labour as laid down by the Australian Government, you may refer to the detailed Skills Occupation List (Australia). All the trades are listed there. Effective 1st July, 2014, the Bricklayers, Tilers and Chefs have been added to the list.
