Australian occupations in demand list

When looking for sponsored opportunities within Australia, it’s worth keeping in mind that you simply can’t apply for any job.

The Australian government, like the governments of many first world countries, recognises that it has an obligation to look after it’s own residents first. This means that employers need to try and source (and have to demonstrate that they have tried to source) the job requirement locally before they begin looking overseas for candidates that can fill the role via the sponsored visa path.

Some roles are considered easy to fill whilst others are considered in demand. It is these these ‘jobs in demand’ that are typically the source of sponsored job opportunities within Australia and each year the Australian government publish a list of the current skills that are considered in demand.

For the purposes of the Australian Sponsored 457 Visa, this list is often referred to as the CSOL or Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List. We’ve provided a copy of the current ‘extensive’ list here.

If your occupation appears on this list then you are in luck as this means that the employers are able to sponsor candidates into these roles.

Keep in mind though that even though your occupation is listed , it does not guarantee that there will always be employers seeking to fill jobs in these occupations.

It simply means that the occupation qualifies for Australian Sponsorship if the Australian employer is unable to source a candidate for the job locally. Keep an eye on our current 457 job opportunities to check if there are any sponsored job opportunities in your current profession as we update this list daily.

Another couple of things worth mentioning. The ANZSCO referenced in the lost is an abbreviation for Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations. This is essentially a database maintained by the Australian government which details the skills associated with each of the professions listed.

This basically ensures that if you do a job in one country, the skills required for that job are aligned with the skills required to do the same job in Australia.

In some instances (although not for all roles) your skills may need to be formally assessed to prove that you have the skills that you say you do. The Assessing Authority detailed in the third column is the Authority currently responsible for assessing people’s skills in the occupation you are applying for. Your future employer will be able to provide further guidance in this space if your job interview for a sponsored role in Australia is a successful one.

    Hi Rocio, when you complete an expression of interest and register your resume with us, we add your details to our database.

    When recruiters advertise jobs on our website, they also have access to this database so they can search for suitable candidates before placing the ads. As such, I would say that registering an Expression of Interest will increase the possibilities of a 457 Visa as it increases the level of exposure you will have with recruiters looking to identify suitable candidates.

    Best of luck wih your search

  37. Rocio 4 years ago

    hello. I am an architect and I am 25 years old. I have possibilities for the visa 457 but a while ago that I don’t find an employer sponsorship to be able to travel temporarily to Australia. if I carry out an Expression of interest do I have more possibilities?Some other option? Is the expression of interest gratuitous?

  38. 457 Jobs 4 years ago

    Hi John, you’ll need to wait for someone to advertise a job in this space. Just because it is a skill considered in demand does not mean there are new jobs advertised all the time.

    Hope this helps
