Sparksy1979 posted a topic in Visa ChatHi everyone, this is my first post, hoping someone out there might be able to offer support and advice. After our second trip to Australia over Christmas my husband and I are now ready to make the move using his skilled trade as a motor technician/mechanic. We have signed on with an agency and have been advised that the quickest way would be down the route of a 457 sponsorship visa. Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so how long did everything take? From signing onto an agency to flying out? We have said we are open to most areas but are slightly restricted as my husband would like to stay with the same brand of car (Audi) he has worked on for the past ten years because he feels more comfortable but is open to sister brands like VW. Unfortunately time isn't on our side as my husband is now in his mid 40's but we don't regret waiting as we both wanted to make sure the move was right for both of us and have been able to and enjoyed trying and testing a number of areas. We are a little worried though about the visa process and not being educated on the process we are unsure what to expect. Is there a chance we may not get in? or does that not normally happen if you secure a contact with a company out there? If anyone can offer advice from a similar experience it would be appreciated, you don't want to get your hopes up too much but after deciding to go for it, at this point if anything went wrong we would be devastated.
Hey everyone I'm hoping to hear from anyone who has been employer sponsored (457 visa) in either the Marketing Specialist (225113) or Market Research Analyst (225112) occupations... I'm a 26 year old Brit who is currently working in Adelaide on my working holiday visa; I've secured a role with a university here and can currently work for six months on my existing visa. It was a permanent position, and the university decided they would rather hire me, if only for six months, rather than any of the other candidates that applied. I've been in the role for nearly a month now and the Director of my team would like to sponsor me (on the 457) but her initial discussions with our allocated HR person have suggested that it wouldn't be possible because my role isn't specialised or senior enough to pass the immigration process. So, my Director is encouraging me to find examples of people at a similar level/in a similar role that have managed to get sponsored under these type of roles. She's introduced me out to one of the most senior people in the university, and has their support to progress discussions with more senior HR staff. A bit more about me and my profession... I work in a relatively new sector for Australia called alumni relations and development. It's essentially relationship marketing and fundraising in higher education - hence why I'm looking into the Marketing Specialist category. I am in a level 6 'Officer' role which pays around $70,000. My role basically involves identifying contacts with the ability to make major donations (5, 6, 7 figures) to our institution (through various types of research and analysis), and developing fundraising campaigns and strategies to secure those gifts. I have five years experience of working in this sector for a university in the UK, as well as level four professional qualifications in marketing and fundraising (Chartered Institute of Marketing and Institute of Fundraising) and lots of additional training. The main downside is that I do not have a degree, though I understand that a minimum of five years relevant work experience could be considered as an alternative. I'd love to hear from anyone else working on a 457 visa under either of these marketing categories, particularly at 'Officer' or 'Co-ordinator' level. Any information on how straightforward your employer-sponsored application was, and any other information that would help my case with HR would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Fern
SamC123 posted a topic in Visa Chathi I have been in Australia for 4 and a half months now, I got a job as a carpenter as soon as I got out here and my boss said he will sponsor me a few weeks into it, but time has gone by and every time I asked him about it he said yeh come see me tomorrow ect... times running out now and basically he isn't sponsoring me he's just been stringing me along. does anyone know of any companies who offer 457 visas for carpenters? as I am really struggling to get a job with a sponsorship included.
I am a seasoned conference and events specialist with strong HR/L&D background, hoping to relocate to Australia. Any one here know of any agencies that specialise in 457 visa jobs? I am also a professionally trained bilingual counsellor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
