Skilled Migration Webinar To Help Businesses

BUSINESSES seeking employees can find out about the Federal Government’s Skilled Migration Program via a webinar hosted by Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast (RDAMNC), in partnership with the Department of Home Affairs.

Kerry Grace, CEO of RDAMNC said, “Skilled migration is an important tool in our regional workforce toolkit, but most employers don’t understand what it is or how to access it.

“With the recent skills shortages we’ve been experiencing on the Mid North Coast, employers can use the 491 and 494 visas, among others, to find workers for those hard to fill, skilled job vacancies, and this webinar will help them understand the steps involved to do that.”

The skilled migration program, which has RDAMNC as the Regional Certifying Body, consists of the Skilled Work Regional Visa (491) and the Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional Visa (494).

“We receive a range of Visa applications from different industry sectors on the Mid North Coast, including hospitality, professional services, manufacturing, engineering, agriculture, medical services and retail,” Ms Grace said.

Jessica Chau and Servet Brennan from the Department of Home Affairs will be delivering the ‘More about the Skilled Migration Program – 491 and 494 Visas’ webinar on 12 July at 10am.

Registration is free but essential and can be accessed via the RDAMNC Facebook and LinkedIn pages or by emailing
