Skilled Occupations List

Recommended Posts

On the SOL there are some occupations that have "similar occupations" quoted under the same occupation number.


Does anyone know whether these similar occupations are still classed as being on the SOL.


E.G. 4983-11 Jeweller - similar occupations Gem Setter, Ring Maker.


My OH has been a Gem Setter for over 20 years. We have to apply to the TRA for skills recognition and we are not sure what angle to go with this.


Do you know whether to say hes a Gem Setter or Jeweller that specialises in Gem Setting.


Has anyone come across this with their occupation or know how immigration and the TRA acknowledge the similar occupation.


I emailed the London office a few days ago with the same question but to date they havent come back to me.


Your comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Tinks,


I can see that this post is from years ago and i think i have seen more recent posts confirming that you are now in Oz. My husband is a jeweller and i was wondering what route you used.


As jeweller is no longer on the main SOL list, employer sponsorship appears to be our only option. Also we want to move to melbourne to be close to my sisters, and i only ever see jobs for jewellers (particulaly advertisng sponsorship) in Perth. Boo!


Does your husband have any tips or no of any of the large jewellery companies that consider sponsorship?
