Congrtats to all that are on their way!

 

My OH is a Business Development Manager (he was 40 last week) for a leading freight forwarding company specialising in road freight and we have just found out from Go Matilda that to get a permanent visa in Aus he needs a Batchelors Degree. He is only 1 step under the Director now and hasn't got a Degree, he has been asking around and nobody in his line of work that we know has one. He has worked his way up the ladder from a 16 year on work experience by swapping companies etc but always staying in the same trade. The only way is a sponsorship it seems, though he works for a multi million pound company they don't have offices in Aus, so we are finding it tricky. Experience and a proven track record doesn't seem to count for much. He is quite happy in his job but has been thinking of moving to TNT who has offices in Aus or similar but is reluctant because if he can't get a transfer and he is not happy, it will all be for nothing, so obviously we are reluctant. We are thinking of attending the Leeds Expo to see if this is any good, but quite honestly at this moment we feel a country that is supposidly desperate for honest good skilled workers they are making it very difficult.

:sad:

Any ideas out there?? Any Business Devopment Managers with similar experiences or got round it some how?

Feeling a bit like the dream is over right now and we haven't got of the first rung yet!

Does the company want to make use of your OH's expertise by expanding their operations into Australia/SE Asia?

 

If so, an overseas business sponsorship leading to a subclass 457 visa, in turn leading to a permanent residency visa under the Employer Nomination Scheme might be a strategy.

 

Best regards.
