Nominated Occupation

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I was wondering if someone could give me advice regarding nominating a occupation.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but do you need to have experience in your nominated occupation? Or could I nominate a occupation where my degree relevant but I've never actually worked in that position?

There are occupations on the list that are similar to what I do but no exact match unfortunately so I was wondering if I could nominate a occupation and just claim no points for experience.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Most will require experience. Also a skills assessment. What visa are you considering.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:

Thanks for your reply.

I was thinking either the 189 or 491 visa but just wasn't sure if I could nominate an occupation with no experience.

I have a bachelors with honours degree in business management and have been contracting in the financial sector for the past 5 years, I have been on several different projects in that time. My most recent role was "Quality Control Analyst" basically checking banks are treating customers fairly and adhering to regulations set by the relevant authority to ensure and maintain financial integrity.

My role kind of sounds like an internal auditor on the occupation list but I've never been given this title, I think maybe I could nominate other information and organisational professionals NEC but not sure.

 

Thanks

Yes, you do.  Job titles don't really matter, it's your duties that are important.  It can be complicated to work out and your best bet is to book a one-off consultation with a migration agent to work out a strategy that would enable you to come to Australia. 

Everything is pretty much at a standstill right now due to Covid, unless you're in a priority occupation (e.g. a doctor), so you've got plenty of time to implement a plan.  If you'll still be under the age limit next year, you may find that your best bet is to get a WHV (Working Holiday Visa) once the borders open.

It will depend on many factors including the assessing authority requirements for your chosen occupation and the points you can score for migration purposes.

If you are currently off shore a 189 r 491 would be unlikely at the moment.

i am in an almost similar situation, if anyone could please help. I am on a sponsored TSS 482 as Internal Auditor 2.5 years now but my degree is in Computer Science and am doing IT/Cyber Security Audits. I dont think i will be able to get a skills assessment for Internal Auditor but ICT Security Specialist with ACS. My company is willing to sponsor 186 PR (TRT or DE) but i am not sure if its possible to be sponsored onto a different occupation (other than my current sponsored 482 internal auditor) if i get a skills assessment in Security Specialist occupation. i have prior experience (outside Australia) which can add up to the minimum requirement (3 years) for DE.
