IT jobs in Australia through General Skilled Migration
One of the main routes to getting IT work in Australia for migrants is through the General Skilled Migration (GSM) scheme. Immigration Australia applicants must demonstrate that their skills meet the criteria of the GSM Skilled Occupation List (SOL). Among the IT occupations currently on the list are:
- Systems analyst
- Analyst programmer
- Developer programmer
- Software engineer
In order to qualify, migrants must have their skills certified by the relevant assessing body, in this case the Australian Computer Society. Australia no longer uses the Migration Occupations in Demand (MODL) list to award additional points to migrants whose skills and experience met current needs in the labour market. Contact Global Visas to find out more about IT opportunities in Australia.
Australia IT Jobs through State-sponsored Employment
GSM applicants can also be nominated for IT jobs by a State or Territory government under the schedule of the SOL that applies to State Migration plans. This covers occupations such as:
- Software engineers and testers
- Software and applications programmers
- Computer network and systems engineers
If you’re looking for an IT job in Sydney, the NSW Government sets out detailed selection criteria, such as:
