CNC machinist tss 482

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have not long returned from a two year working holiday visa back to the UK. After meeting my girlfriend out in oz (also from the UK) we are absolutely certain in our want to return back to Australia.

I was wondering if anyone had sponsored or been sponsored by a company as a CNC machinist and/or programmer.

I worked in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and never had a problem getting interviews/jobs as a machinist but I think it would be hard to convince someone to give me a job from 10,000 miles away. It’s also hard to judge the quality of a job role and the shop I’d be working in from overseas.

I have had an old boss tell me that he may sponsor me after covid is over but I’m not 100% how much I trust that the option will come to fruition. 

Can anybody shed some light on this please?

 

Thanks :-)

It would depend on exactly what you do as a CNC machinist and what qualifications/experience you have, as there are a number of occupations which it could fall under.

A 482 employer sponsored visa may be an option, however, obtaining permission to enter Australia would be a hurdle at the moment.

Finding a suitable business to sponsor you while you are not in Australia will also be difficult, unless you already have industry contacts.

With regards to certificates, skill and experience I am quite qualified.  
 

I am sure I come under the metal machinist category. 
 

For the 189/190 visa I believe I score around 80-90 points but I don’t think I would succeed with that little amount of points. I’m not entirely sure how it works but I’ve seen some stuff online of people saying they don’t get accepted even with 90+ points .

 

Edit: I’m obviously aware of the current state of events and that getting to Australia is quite difficult right now. We weren’t expecting to be anywhere near the road to coming back until summer 2021 but I’m just doing as much research now as I can.
