Is a job offer requirement for 190

Recommended Posts

Hello

For the skill ICT Project Manager under 190 state sponsorship, most states indicated that a job offer is required as part of the documentation for applying for a nomination. Is this really the case? It just seems weird because most jobs I applied for just wrote back saying you are not shortlisted since you don't have a work visa.

Could anyone please help clarify this point.

 

Thanks

For some areas there isn’t a shortage of people for those jobs so employers do not need to look overseas.  Try applying to country towns rather than in the CBDs, that is where they might have more difficulty recruiting. 

That is why states specify the job offer, it is one way of testing the job market to ensure people already here and qualified are not disadvantaged.

It's not weird, it's the way the visa is supposed to work.   If you have a skill that's in seriously short supply in Australia, then your occupation should be on the list for the Skilled Independent visa.   The state visas are just meant to plug the gaps, where a particular state has employers who are struggling to find staff.   If an employer is telling you sorry, you haven't got a visa, then it's likely there are enough local applicants and therefore the state shouldn't be importing outsiders.

As Rammygirl says, often the issue is that most Australians live in or near the big cities and don't want to move to country towns, which are often remote (it's not like the UK, where even if you're in a village, you're probably a shortish drive to a reasonable-sized city).  Obviously job vacancies in the country are rarer, but when they do occur, they are often very hard to fill and employers will be willing to give you a go.

Thank you all for the quick response. 

So is there any point trying to apply for a state nomination without a job offer? Will it get rejected for sure? Or is it worth giving a shot even if the job offer is not there?

If the documentation says a job offer is required, a job offer is required.  No point in applying.
