Selecting the best occupation

Recommended Posts

I'm a project manager currently in Manchester UK, and looking at best options for either 491 or 190 visa, ideally SA or NSW. My skills are a close fit for project administrator which is on SA 491 list but it's currently high (95) points - I have 75 or 90 if I sit English academic test. Can anyone advise if conditions could change in July and points requirements come down?

If not I am hoping I might be able to evidence under Education Managers nec or Specialist Manager nec, but it's hard as there are no role details. My background is managing/implementing donor funded education programmes, bit niche but hoping I could match one of those. Does anyone have any experience of positive skills assessment in similar case?

Is it worth paying for the Skillselect pre-check consultation?

Thanks for any advice🥰

I think you are mis-reading the SA website. This occupation is "Special Conditions Apply" and the high points "Special Condition" is NOT available to applicants (since July last year), even if they have high points. Effectively the nomination is only available to applicants who are currently employed in SA and SA graduates.

Thanks for clarifying Paul, do you think there's a chance that this condition could be lifted when plans refresh in July? 

Are you able to give any tips regarding nec occupations? Specialist Managers and Education managers nec are both on nsw 491 list but I'm not sure how literal or open to interpretation the descriptors are? For example Education Managers manage education programmes and liaise between institutions. I managed government funded programmes which I implemented across schools and unis, and I did act as liaison between them, but did not work within the education provider itself.

You need to be dealing with a specialist migration agent such as Paul above. His contact details are in his signature. Yes, you will pay, but your case is far from simple.
