Migrant tip: In-demand jobs in Australia in 2014

  • Sharebar

Australia’s skilled migration program helps the country address skills shortages in several industries. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship has allotted 128,550 places for skilled migrants for the 2013-2014 financial year to accommodate the need of states and territories for skilled professionals for their regional industries. In this light, migrants who want to earn bigger only need to know the most in-demand jobs in Australia in order to have a fulfilling career. Employment website SEEK has the following information to help skilled migrants who want to work in Australia:

Jobs on the front line

According to SEEK, the medical field continues to be a thriving industry in the coming year. Demand for Medical Imagers, Pharmacists, Medical Specialists, and Dentists rose by 46%, 34%, 34%, and 33%, respectively. The most sought-after professionals are General Practitioners, whose demand rose by almost double in May 2013 compared to the same time in the previous year.

Sarah McCartney, spokesperson for SEEK, said that it can be expected that the continuous growth of the country’s population will be proportional to the demand in the healthcare industry.

“It’s no surprise that with Australia hitting a milestone population of 23 million in April that the demand for Primary Healthcare workers has increased,” she stated.

Employment prospects

SEEK research also showed that employment conditions in the country are becoming better, revealing that the rate of unemployment fell by one point from 5.6%. Moreover, this reduction is contrasted by the increase in the number of new jobs to 50,100 in April.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has some numbers to add as well, particularly pointing out the rise of full-time and part-time workers to 34,500 and 15,600, respectively.

With these positive data, migrants are therefore advised to consider applying for the following positions that experienced the highest rise in demand: Credit Assessors (44%), Geoscientists (28%), IT Security Specialists (25%), Insurance and Superannuation Underwriters (23%), and General Practitioners (23%).

Expert advice

Despite the rising demand for medical practitioners, skilled migrants still have several employment opportunities to look forward to. There are jobs in Australia that are found in regional areas that also offer as great benefits as those in cities. Skilled migrants only need to secure their qualifications and documents, then proceed with the visa application process: submit an Expression of Interest on the SkillSelect website, provide supporting documents, then lodge the appropriate visa upon receipt of a positive reply.

Skilled migrants should also take note that migration companies like National Visas can help throughout the visa application process. The company has registered migration agents with years of experience in the industry who can streamline the process and provide the hassle-free, legal, and professional visa service they need to start their professional career in Australia.
