mahfuzul80 posted a topic in Visa ChatHi All, I my occupation is listed in WA SOL under Schedule 2 and Available. So I believe I am eligible for WA State Sponsorship (Subclass 190) since I met all minimum requirements and I already lodged EOI through SkillSelect. Now my questions are - 1. Will WA search/assess EOI by own and send the invitation to apply for WA State Sponsorship? I mean do I need to wait till automatic invitation or I need to do any other formalities beforehand? 2. Under Schedule 2 Occupation and as per State Nomination Criteria http://www.migration.wa.gov.au/SiteCollectionDocuments/2013-14%20State%20nomination%20criteria.pdf (Page 3), do I need to submit evidence of full-time contract employment at the time of applying for state sponsorship? Or it belongs to the applicant applying within Australia? For me, I would like to apply from outside Australia. 3. If the above answer is yes, then how likely to get employment offer who stays outside Australia? Thanks in advance for your kind attention.
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi Everyone,Hoping someone can advise. I'm hoping to permanently emigrate to Australia with my long term Partner. I work for BT and am a qualified Telecomms Field engineer where i manage provision of service and repair faults on telephone lines for Broadband and PSTN. For this i have completed an apprenticeship, gained an NVQ Level 3 and BTEC in telecommunications. I also have 3 HNC's, 1 in Electronics, 1 in Electrical engineering and the other in Mechatronics. I have been with BT now for 9 years and I'm classed as a senior technician where i lead engineering projects and matrix teams of engineers during a project to ensure we have the work completed on time, budget and to the correct quality standards. For this I am also a qualified project manager and have the Prince 2 qualification and a Degree in Business Management. I have also passed my IELTS exam for English as I know the assessing bodies expect this. The reason i have mentioned the qualifications etc is to really position my query and the assistance i'm hoping for. From the skills and qualifications i have gained so far i think i can apply to get my skills recognised by Engineers Australia as a Telecommunication Field engineer which is on Schedule 1 of the Skilled Occupations List (CSOL). However i have a feeling that i need to have an engineering degree for this and i have a business one. The applications form for this seems to be quite long also. I have also noticed that on Schedule 2 of the CSOL there is a role called Telecommunications Technician where the assessing body is TRA. The application process through TRA seems much more straight forward and i would be more inclined to apply for this. After checking the areas in Australia that have Telecommunications Technicians on their list i noticed that both Melbourne and Perth have this, which would be fine with me. I'm more inclined to Opt for the skill on Schedule 2 because the form seems simpler and the outline of the role against this seems similar to the skills i have, however my skills also match with the one on Schedule 1. If i go for a skill on Schedule 2 do you think this will reduce my chance of being selected? This is the last thing i want to do.Hope this makes sense and you can help me out. Warm Regards Chris
