Jobs in Australia

The visa experts at Australia Immigration Professionals (AIP) help skilled foreign workers explore their options to live and work in Australia.

With its strong economy, low unemployment rate and ongoing skills shortage, there are many Australian employment opportunities available to foreign workers with the education, jobs skills, English abilities and other traits that are needed by Australian employers.

There are hundreds of high-demand jobs in Australia on the official skilled occupation lists (e.g., SOL and CSOL) that qualify for the General Skilled Migration (GSM) program. The MARA-registered Migration Agent who works with the AIP visa experts can evaluate your eligibility for Australian immigration.

Recent data (September 2016) from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) indicates that the professional services sector is creating the most new jobs in Australia, followed by accommodation and food, public administration, financial services, education and health.
