There is Never an ICT Skills Shortage Whilst You Have Access to a Labour Agreement04/08/2017 6:21:48 AM
Staffing Industry Analysts have posted a great article on the expected growth of the ICT market in Australia in the coming 12 months. Richard Fisher Managing Director of Greythorn Recruitment (A ManpowerGroup company) stated “The IT market is set to experience significant growth in the coming months in several key sectors, as indicated by the Greythorn survey. All signs point towards a skills shortage, particularly within the areas of Cloud Computing and Mobility Solutions.”
Richard also mentioned that Greythorn is seeing an increased demand for User Interface (UI), and User Experience (UX) Developers, Business Analysts, Regulatory and Compliance Business Analysts, and Project Managers and Credit Risk & Market Risk Specialists and that Architecture professionals are also in high demand and look set to continue to be so over the coming year.
So the question of where can we find these professionals is routinely met with “Hmm you know there is a skills shortage in this area in Australia”.
The solution is found within the the Department of Immigration & Border Protection Instrument entitled as A Labour or Work Agreement. The Labour Agreement allows approved businesses to take over the sponsorship obligations and on hire the 482 Visa holding candidate to the host employer. That means you can access the talent from any number of countries and not have to worry about the sponsorship obligations that are associated with 482 visas.
ICT Professionals form part of the that agreement so companies like Greythorn can access greater pools of talent internationally knowing that they can use the services of Hemisphere Migration to source a Labour agreement sponsor for these professionals on any companies’ behalf.
