    My brother is an Australian citizen

    Does that have any benefits to me if I want to migrate to Australia myself?

    Company sponsorship only option , chances

    I was recently told my only chance to move to Australia now as chemist is company sponsorship. I was wondering if I went ahead and got a skills assessment and and took a trip to Aus and try and talk to companies face to face in an effort to attain sponsorship would my chances of success still be very small
  3. Isn't there supposed to be january stsol and mltssl updates since its been 6 months since the last updates . When are these updates actually going to be released

    If one has a MSc in engineering recognised by engineers Australia do you still need work experience specific to this?
  5. I'm 39 year old single male with no sale dependents . I have nothing really to keep me in Ireland and I've become very bored and disillusioned with the place. I have a brother in Melbourne who is an Australian citizen who I visit twice a year . He'd love me to move over and I save all my cash for 2 vacations a year . The problem is that my occupation of chemist was taken off the skills list back in July of this year . I'm hoping it comes back on the stsol next January even if that's unlikely. I would also appreciate any advice for reskilling in a career that's in demand in Australia and one I could do relatively quick. At 39 . Time isn't on my side

    Engineering technologist 233914

    Under biotechnology and science Victoria has the following occupations Biotechnology and Science ANZSCO code Occupation Minimum IELTS (or equivalent) requirement Minimum work experience Specialisations and other requirements 224112 Mathematician 6.0 in each band Two years Must have two year’s experience in the Science industry. 234111 Agricultural Consultant 6.0 in each band Two years 234112 Agricultural Scientist 6.0 in each band Two years 233914 Engineering Technologist 7.0 in each band Two years 234711 Veterinarian 7.0 in each band Three years Must be registered with the Veterinary Practitioners Registration Board of Victoria. I recently discovered my role of chemist has been remove from the skills list but I could transition into a role called Validation Engineer here with my current employer so I am wondering if I would then be eligible to apply under Engineering technologist 233914 since its such a broad and generic occupation on that list. The role of validation engineer is a highly qualified and technical position with the pharmaceutical industry. Here is a layout of the role http://www.getreskilled.com/what-is-a-validation-engineer/

    Is my Australian dream over

    What your talking about seems more like R&D which is a different area to me and maybe your friends are over qualified . If as you say they are leading teams then they wont be working on the bench as a chemist , sounds more like management work

    Is my Australian dream over

    On the 1st jul17 my role of chemist was taken off the STSOL list which was very disappointing , CSL are announced a major investment for a biopharmaceutical facility there in Melbourne recently which I thought looked very positive for me . I dont think there are many universities in Australia that have qualifications specific to the biopharmaceutcal industry, generic science degress yes but not specific to Cell Culture etc. In fact that company CSL had to pay a number of its employess to do a specific course here in Ireland because there was nothing comparable to it in Australia. I am now trying to assess my options , I would even consider a 457 visa or what that transitions to next march. I also dont have to stay in my current career as chemist, I could perhaps transition into process or validation would may get me in under engineering technologist. I would appreciate any or all advice anyone can give, my brother is now an Australian Citizen so I wonder if theres anything I could explore there to help me

    Career change; the day has finally come!

    Hi GiveAGirlShoes Can you be more specific on how you don't need experience with your new career? Don't you need to satisfy a minimum points requirement? How does one find out what careers do and do not require experience?
  10. Is there certain professions on the MTLSSL that once you qualify you can apply for a permanent visa and do not need to have a certain number of years experience before hand?
  11. Congrats on your new qualification  and every success in your quest for a visa and future career . Can I ask why you don't need experience in your new field before applying for the visa ? I'm in Limbo myself and it looks  like my dream to live in Australia is over .My role of chemist was only ever on the csol list but it was taken off that on July 1st. and at 39 its probably too late to retrain . I might be prepared to do a different occupation but to then have to get experience is  just too long to undertake, this is why I'm asking what careers you don't need experience in for the visa

    Validation engineer

    I'm considering a reskill from chemist to validation engineer and have a few queries 1. If an occupation is on the mltssl , do I still need experience .How many years? 2. Is a permanent migration visa a certainty if my occupation is on the mltssl ? 3. Its not on the list outright but could the role of Validation Engineer qualify under Engineering Technologist 233914 or plant engineer 233513?
  13. what are the chances of my occupation coming back on it?
  14. My role of chemist was most recently taken off the skilled occupation list for state sponsorship for Victoria for subclass 190, I have a few questions about my options 1. What is the likely hood this will return to the list? 2.What about company sponsorship visas? 3. Any advice on re skilling for an occupation that's in demand but doesn't require a lot of experience Any hope or advice at all would be appreciated, thanks

    my qualification recognition in Australia

    Thanks for that . I tried looking for the Irish equivalent but its costs 456 dollars . My qualification took 3 years fulltime collage study and is level 7 on the NFQ . Do you think it will be seen equivalent to the AFQ level bachelors
