6 reasons trade workers should migrate to Australia 

If you work in a specialised trade, such as roofing, plumbing, electrical and construction, then there are many exciting opportunities for skilled workers in Australia. It is something to consider, especially in the current economic climate. Skilled professionals are highly sought after in Australia and if you’ve got the right qualifications and experience, you may well be eligible for a skilled migration visa for Australia. This means you could apply for one of the following visas.

Australian Skilled Visas

Here are our top 6 reasons why skilled trade workers are emigrating to Australia.

  1. Considering the current economic climate in Europe and North America, there are plenty of career opportunities to be found in Australia. With a low unemployment rate, work is readily available. The economy has remained relatively stable in Australia throughout the past decade, with further economic growth expected.
  1. In comparison with other first-world countries, the working wages in Australia are much higher. Although the cost of living is also more expensive, the salary you would expect to earn is enough to support a comfortable lifestyle.
  1. There is currently a shortage of skilled trade workers in Australia, with Adelaide being one of the worst affected area. Many Australian government-run websites are advertising for skilled workers and offering online assessments to encourage potential migrants to consider moving to the country.
  1. The lifestyle in Australia is very different to that of other countries. There is a high focus on balancing work and socialising/recreation, since spending time with friends and family is a very important aspect of Australian culture. Employers are more accommodating in working careers around family commitments, such as childcare.
  1. You can apply for a permanent visa straight away, especially if your specialised skill is one of the top ten in-demand occupations, issued by the Australian government. There is plenty of help and support available when applying for a visa, and it is advised to find a MARA registered Migration Agent to guide you through the process.
  1. There is a great deal of encouragement from employers to enhance career prospects by pursuing further education, whether that is enrolling on courses to supplement your skills or studying for a degree. This also opens up possible promotions to further your career within a company or organisation.

  • All going well. Thank you, after all the work that was put in from your office with regards our emigration we cannot thank you enough, again many thanks for everything!
    – Michael Coombes, Australia
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
