Construction Jobs in Australia through General Skilled Migration

The General Skilled Migration (GSM) scheme offers one of the main paths to an Australian working visa. Applicants must be aged 18-45 and demonstrate that their skills meet the criteria of the GSM Skilled Occupation List (SOL). Among the occupations currently on the list are:

  • Carpenter
  • Joiner
  • Bricklayer
  • Stonemason

Applicants can no longer gain points towards GSM through the Migration Occupations in Demand (MODL) list. Since 2010 this scheme has been phased out and Australia now uses targeted strategies for filling priority vacancies in the Australian labour market. To find out whether you meet the criteria for building jobs in Australia, contact Global Visas by taking our free assessment.

Construction Jobs in Australia through State-sponsored Employment

GSM applicants can also be nominated for jobs in the construction sector by a State or Territory government under individual State Migration plans. A separate part of the SOL covers occupations such as:

  • Plasterers
  • Plumbers
  • Roof tillers
  • Electricians

Individual States set out their own selection criteria for sponsoring overseas workers in the construction field. Western Australia, for example, has its own SOL for skilled workers (WASMOL) as well target scores under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). If you’re looking for carpentry jobs in Australia, Global Visas can advise you on which Australian States are currently recruiting in that sector.

Employer-sponsored Construction Jobs in Australia

Although GSM is restricted to applicants aged over 18 and under 45, temporary or permanent construction jobs may be open through sponsorship by an Australian or overseas company. If you’re looking for construction jobs in Australia, the Employer Nomination Scheme Occupation List (ENSOL) includes areas like bricklaying, carpentry and plumbing. As with GSM, all applicants must undergo skills assessment with the relevant assessment body for their trade.
