DIBP vs ACS Skill Assessment: Urgent Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Below is my situation.

 

I was working for organisation A for 6 years and 8 months till December 2013. In February, i Joined Organisation B at the same designation (Senior Business Analyst - IT - 261111). In May, i had my skill assessment done, but in my naivety, as i did not want to inform my employer that i'm planning on migrating to Australia, i only showed the reference letter from my previous employer i.e. 6 years and 8 months. I got my assessment result in June, and ACS deducted 2 years making my experience 4 years and 8 months.

I recenly got my ielts result and got a band of 8 (min 7.5 so 10 points).

 

So here is my points

 

Age - 30

Qualification - 15

English - 10

Job - 5 / 10 if current experience is counted.

 

I want to now, whether i should go ahead and show my current experience which is 9 months now making overall 5 years and 5 months, despite that my current experience has not been assessed by ACS. Would diac accept if i show them the reference letter and salary proofs from current employer.

 

Cheers

If you have solid evidence of your experience in the Organisation B job, you should be safe to claim that experience for points without having it assessed by the ACS. If you have a reference letter from them describing your employment as a Business Analyst and salary evidence for that job, it sounds to me like you should be OK. If you have any doubt that your evidence may not stand up, why not do IELTS again instead with a view to getting all 8s for 20 Superior English points and forget the experience from Organisation B.

Just fyi... asked a friend in Australia to call dibp and they said that if showing the experience which has not been assessed results in a change in points then it should be assessed... this is true especially in my case where the experience is with a different organisation
