Hi guys, Just want to know your opinion about my visa. I have MSc in Energy and Resources Management (which includes courses of finance, economy, project management etc.). Just graduated. I have an option to apply for 485 Temporary graduate visa and stay 3 years as I have done MSc by research. But I'm thinking about going straight with PR and in the regional list of SA I have noticed the profession of Management Consultant. What do you reckon, am I eligible or it's kinda difficult to say? Cheers Andy
Im in a bit of a predicament, more info on this post. Currently on 457, doing a ENS 186, and current employer lodged me as a Mgmt Consultant. Due to some issues around my employer lodging this when it was the 856, and me applying on my half when it was the 186, the only option I now have is not to be on the temporary migration stream, but the direct stream. So. I need to get my skills assessed as a Mgmt Consultant with vetassess. This is in the Group B field for skills: The truth: I did a degree in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) I spent 3 years in the UK as a GIS Analyst, 2 yrs as a GIS Consultant (didnt manage people, but some project mgmt) Came to Oz on 457 as a Mgmt Consultant, but essentially been working for 3.5yrs as a GIS Senior Consultant. Am I eligible? Vetasses state: source Q1 - Is my qualification in GIS highly relevant to my nominated occupation as a Mgmt Consultant? Yes, I am a GIS Consultant, but its not like my original degree was in how to be a Mgmt Consultant. Its like someone having a financial degree, but then goes on to become a Mgmt Consultant for a Financial firm, same Q applies. It goes on to state: I dont want to fork out $650 to then fail the assessment. The even more annoying factor, is that there is a more suitable occupation (Cartographer) which my employer should have put in, as I would have no problems passing this test. This was not initially an issue as I was under the impression that I would be going into the 186 temporary transition stream, which did not need my skills assessed. From talking to DIAC, I believe that trying to convince my case officer if I can change the nominated occupation will likely result in the application having to be cancelled and no refund, and start over again. Not entirely sure my employer would also want to start another application. Any ideas, or experience from those that have done skills assessments with vetassessas a Mgmt consultant? Its quite a vague role.
I made the move out to Australia (via career stop in Hong Kong) last year and am very settled in Brisbane and working successfully as an equity Partner in an Australian boutique Management Consultancy/Business Advisory firm. The company has capacity for new Equity Partners in Brisbane (where I'm based), Sydney & Melbourne. This may be of interest to folks with the right experience and background (as Oz is short in this area) so if you've got 20+ years industry experience at Senior Management/Executive/Director level running a business, business unit or with P&L responsibility, have a background and wealth of experience you think would be valuable to business owners in Australia then drop me a line at richard.moss[at]eborders.net or PM me. The roles involve management consulting/business advisory into privately held businesses with annual turnovers in the range of $2-200 million a year and working directly with the owners and shareholders - so you need to be confident, know your stuff, have the ability to do the work yourself (no juniors to delegate to here) and have an honest/ethical approach to our clients business it could be worth having a chat. To be clear - this is not a development role for someone, you've either got the experience or you haven't. Finally, there's no "hiring deadline" and no pressure applied so for anyone looking to emigrate and not sure exactly when, where, or if the visa will get approved (been there last year) this discussion will work around that. It’s about having the right people when the time is right. Interested? Drop me a line and we can chat, if you're interested I'll give you all the details and connect you with the managing partner for another chat cheers, Richard. P.S. we have smaller offices in Adelaide and Perth but I'm not wholly convinced that would be a good move for this type of position where it’s better to be close to some critical mass of other people but if anyone is dead set on those tow city's happy to chat as well
