Australia's economy can best be described as a mixed economy. The country has moved away from a reliance on farming and agriculture as the principal generator of wealth and employment and this has seen a demand for employees across a broad spectrum.
Unemployment in recent years has sat at levels around 6%. Australia currently has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the developed world.
Skills in real demand tend to be right across the board. In particular however, we are seeing strong demand for computer technicians and programmers, I.T. specialists, nurses and most health professionals, engineers of various shades, marketing professionals, finance executives including accountants and most especially tradesman (of every description). Obviously demand for certain occupations waxes and wanes and it is very difficult to make generalisations. In some parts of Australia there is achronic skills shortages yet in others there are surpluses within the same occupational group.
There are a number of employment companies, executive search firms and government agencies that we can put you in touch with once you make the decision to emigrate. We cannot guarantee employment; we do our best to assist you with the right contacts.The reality for most would be migrants is that prospective employers will be reluctant to offer employment without (a) first meeting you and (b) without you having permanent residence or a work visa.
While this is a frustration for would be migrants and an inaccessible obstacle for many, it is a reality. Those that are prepared to travel to Australia and attend interviews or to approach companies directly, stand a far greater chance of success.
