Professional people — doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers – will find there are ample opportunities for them to become established and prosperous in Australia.

There are many ways of getting to this goal.

Healthcare professionals may obtain jobs solely on the basis of their overseas qualifications. Such jobs are available to people who are interested in contract employment for a period of years. Those who wish to go into private practice will need to become locally certified.

We can advise on this. This applies to physicians, surgeons and allied healthcare professionals including audiologists, dentists, dieticians, environmental health officers, occupational therapists, optometrists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, pharmacists, podiatrists, dental and other prosthetists, psychologists, radiographers, radiation therapists and social workers (as in fact to which there is a very high demand).

In assorted Australian States there are annual medical recruitment campaigns for interim resident medical officers and specialist medical training positions and we can advise further as to these programs.

Healthcare workers are paid generously and competitively. Employers provide superannuation, remote area allowances, study leave, cumulative sick leave and annual leave. Public hospitals are able to take advantage of federal tax concessions for the benefit of their employees.

Nurses may be able to obtain a provisional certification and work immediately. As with doctors, if they wish to remain long-term they will need to obtain local certification. We can help you in all such matters.

Teachers may be qualified for employment immediately in the extensive private school network which exists in all Australia States.

There are church, mosque and temple – affiliated schools which are eager for foreign-qualified teachers with special skills: these schools do not hire on the basis of religious affiliation but academic qualification, which need not be formal teacher-training so long as you are qualified in an internationally recognized university.

If you wish to be employed in the public school system you need to acquire local qualifications: we can advise about this also.

Overseas engineers’ qualifications are highly regarded in Australia and employment opportunities can be extremely attractive. Qualifications from countries such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Malaysia and elsewhere are in great demand because of the flexibility and imagination that are required in such countries.

Note also the information as to public benefits for permanent residents whether employed or still seeking employment elsewhere on this website: free healthcare, living expenses benefits for those seeking employment and all safety.

Benefits for employees and people seeking work

Over the past century Australia has implemented a wide range of social welfare policies which benefit investors and workers. Workers needn’t look to their employers for many benefits because they are available from the state to everyone:

  • Universal free education till matriculation,
  • Universal public medical insurance,
  • The minimum wage,
  • Workers’ compensation,
  • Occupational health and safety regulations,
  • Occupiers’ liability and superannuation (mandatory pension funds for the retirement years which can, in fact, be withdrawn in a lump sum by those who emigrate to another country).

They are also a considerable benefit to employers in Australia as compared with countries where it is companies which must provide these benefits for their workers – a particular cost of doing business in the USA.

A high quality of public security, excellent law enforcement and an incorruptible and efficient judicial system mean that employers are spared the cost of private security arrangements.

  6. Hi,

    I received my invitation to apply for my permanent residency visa on 7th January, 2013. I am a pharmacist by profession having completed my Bachelor of Pharmacy degree in Australia. My concern here is that I am currently completing my internship (paid work) and already have worked for 1 year now. When I applied for my PR, I had already worked for one year and assumed that it has given me 5 points (1 year work experience).

    While the assessing authority states on the skilled assessment that work experience is not applicable (which I realized just now since overlooked that fact), I have been in a paid employment for more than one year (full-time position). Please note that the skilled assessment was done sometime last after completion of my degree (15th November, 2011).

    My concern here is that I have got a written work experience letter from my employer. Would they take into account the letter, payslips and other documents that I am willing to provide or would they consider the skill assessment with fine point about work experience not applicable and therefore, reject my application?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

In this matter will u Plzz suggest me what will be my next step. If u require any more info do mail me sir. Thanking you.
