Australia has been facing labour and skills shortages in the workforce across a number of industries. To help combat this problem the government has made it a particular focus of theirs to increase the number of skilled workers in the migration program. Skilled Migration still remains the most popular means for meeting demand in skills shortages with almost 70% of all approvals coming by way of the Skilled Migration Stream.
Monarch Migration & Education aims to assist businesses in understanding the complexities of the migration system and how that understanding can open up options to better suit your companies needs. We offer strategic consultation and advice around structuring your use of the migration program and skilled workers. Our staff have a strong background in HR and IR, across a broad range of industries such as construction, oil & gas, and manufacturing.

Our motto is: “migrating with you” because migration & education can be daunting, therefore we want you to know we’re on the journey with you, supporting and understanding your experience.
There are two main pathways for employers to bring in skilled workers. Firstly on a temporary basis, or secondly as a permanent worker. This system has been designed to meet the critical skills shortages in certain industries across the workforce. Temporary Business Visa – Subclass 457 The 457 is designed to provide the employer with a number of benefits, such as:
quick application process
try before you buy (it’s temporary)
option to nominate the employee for permanent residency
The Temporary Subclass 457 has three specific phases in the it’s application process. 1. The application by an entity (such as a company) to become Standard Business Sponsor (SBS) or participate in a Work or Labour Agreement 2.Nomination of a skilled occupation (by the SBS listed in step 1) 3.Visa application by the nominee after the nomination has been made in step 2. The Employer Nomination Scheme & Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (ENS/RSMS). The ENS and RSMS streams are both permanent visas and are applied for in a similar fashion to the 457 however the obvious difference is this is a permanent application. If you would like to know more about the 457, ENS or RSMS get in touch with our staff and we would be happy to provide further information.

In addition to the fairly straight forward visa approaches mentioned above (457, ENS & RSMS), the government has introduced Labour Agreements. Labour agreements are formal arrangements negotiated between an employer and the Australian Government which lets an employer recruit an agreed number of skilled workers from outside Australia. The agreement must: •identify the relevant skills shortage in the business and why these vacancies cannot be filled by Australian workers •specify the number of skilled workers needed from outside Australia •the age, skill and English language requirements that relate to the nominated occupations. Semi-skilled occupations can be considered for nominated positions if specified in the agreement. For further information about a Labour Agreement could benefit your company, please get in touch with one of our staff.
