According to the Morrison Government review on skilled migration occupation list, regional areas of Australia were asked to present how many job vacancies are pending to be filled. Based on the outputs, it has been stated that the occupations on the trade sector have a significant skills shortage.
Michaelia Cash – Minister of Employment and Skills, stated that “Skilled migration has always been a part of this country’s prosperity, but we need to ensure we are getting the right skilled migrants filling the skills shortages.”
She even added that, “We have heard from stakeholders who have identified a growing need in some sectors for skilled workers.”
The top occupations – IT sector, university lecturers, management roles, chefs and doctors, figures from the employment department are having a good number of skilled workers getting employed in 2018-2019.
In the year 2017-2018, there was a difference in people getting migrated through the skilled visas. In contrast to all these, the Immigration Minister – David Coleman has stated that they are focusing on skills shortages in regional areas and making the needful efforts to grow the businesses.
He added that “We’ve allocated 23,000 regional migration places, introduced two new regional visas and signed designated area migration agreements around the country to attract migrants to the regions, help towns grow and to fill some of the 60,000 job vacancies in regional Australia.”
Also, it was stated that, in March 2020, there would be an updated skilled migration occupation list released. The present list has about 500 occupations which are eligible for temporary skilled visas, and the rest 673 jobs are related to the regional sponsored migration scheme.
