Latest Australian Job Sponsorship News, Guides & Articles
Find here all the latest news on sponsored jobs in Australia, what jobs are available, which jobs are trending (and which aren’t), as well as tips and guides on how to increase your chance of landing employer sponsored jobs in Australia (457 visa sponsored).
183 new sponsored jobs have been advertised in Australia in the past week – that’s 31 more jobs that were posted last week. Great news for job seekers! The new total number of live sponsored jobs has now been increased to 2981 – now available at sponsoredjobsinaustralia.com.
Last week there were even more jobs advertised in Australia with visa sponsorship than there was in the previous week, with 254 new jobs being posted, bringing the new total of employer sponsored jobs to 3105, now available at sponsoredjobsinaustralia.com.
We continue to have more than 3000 jobs offering employer sponsorship / 457 visa sponsorship advertised at https://sponsoredjobsinaustralia.com.
Australian politician Bill Shorten confirms my own view that the 457 visa announcement was dramatised for political purposes, calling the announcement of axing the 457 visa by Mr Turnbull as nothing more than “cosmetic” and a “con-job”.
Wow, when we started this membership site a year and a half ago there were only just over 1000 advertised sponsored jobs available in Australia. Now, we have well over 3000 advertised sponsored jobs, even after the 457 visa changes and announcement of cancelling the visa. This should be very encouraging for you as a sponsored job seeker.
It was a bit uncertain how the latest 457 visa news was going to affect the number of sponsored jobs being advertised in the past week; however, it was a pleasant surprise to see that there were more jobs than average, compared to jobs posted over the past 7 weeks! This is an excellent sign and just confirms my theory that apart from the jobs that have been removed from the list of qualifying occupations, there is still a demand for overseas talent, and Australian employers are still targeting people for employer sponsorship.
A lot of questions have been asked since the announcement of scrapping the 457 visa yesterday, and I wanted to answer some of them for you immediately, to help you work out whether you will still qualify for sponsorship in Australia.
I wanted to do a quick post before you go into panic mode about the talk of Australia scrapping the 457 visa, so you have a clearer idea of what is happening and what this means to you. I will keep you informed as more information is released about these changes, but for now, it is important for you to understand the changes and Australia’s plans for employer sponsorship, moving forward.
A total of 199 new jobs have been posted in the past week, offering employer sponsorship in Australia; and with those jobs we saw a particular increase for jobs in Trades & Services, IT & ICT, Education & Training, Construction and CEO & General Management. The new overall total of advertised sponsored jobs available in Australia is 2742, and these jobs can now be accessed at sponsoredjobsinaustralia.com.
