The new skilled occupations list for 2017 has been announced and Accountants can breathe a sigh of relief. Despite a controversial lack of positions in the Australian job market, graduate Accountants can take a small degree of comfort knowing that a migration outcome may still be feasible, despite the lack of job certainty for international graduates.
International audiologists are encouraged to seek professional advice from an experienced and registered Migration Lawyer, as this occupation has been added to the list. This move undoubtable reflects the shortage of audiologists which has been experienced right across Australia in recent years.
The following occupations have been removed from the list:
- Environmental Health Officer
- Occupational Health and Safety Adviser
- Orthotist or Prosthetist
If you are a skilled foreign national with qualifications and exeperience in an occupation listed above, all hope is not lost as there are still opportunities available for state nomination in most Australian States and Territories.
The official SOL list is available via the Migration Regulations by clicking here.
