If you are an Australian business looking to employ multiple visa holders for occupations recognised as ‘semi-skilled’ by the Australian Government, you might be interested in becoming an approved sponsor through a Labour Agreement.
There are several different Labour Agreements available which would enable your business to sponsor visa holders for needs that cannot be met in the Australian labour market and where standard migration arrangements are not suitable.
As part of the Labour Hire application process, employers will need to demonstrate they have made genuine efforts to recruit, employ or engage locally, and will need to consult with industry stakeholders, including relevant trade unions and peak industry bodies about their Labour Agreement. If approved, a Labour Agreement is usually valid for three years.
Businesses interested in understanding whether a Labour Agreement is suitable for their business are encouraged to contact our Registered Migration Agents at [email protected] or call 08 9221 3388.
