Details Of Job Skills Being Sought For People Migrating to Tasmania

BA9AFFE0BF

The Tasmanian Government offers advice and assistance to people considering moving to Tasmania in terms of jobs being sought to be filled and Visa information. We are not migration agents and cannot offer you any advice on obtaining your Visa if you are wanting to migrate to Tasmania.

We can however refer you to that previous Tasmanian Government website and the article below that sets out the types of jobs that are being sought to be filled. If you have skills in these areas and want to move to Tasmania, then get in touch with a migration agent or migration lawyer who can assist you with your Visa requirements. Once you know about your Visa, we can assist you with choosing where to live and finding your perfect rental house or one to purchase.

Tasmania’s unemployment rate is dropping and the Tasmanian Government is seeking to boost the population of Tasmania and attract more people to Tasmania.

We offer a range of free cheat sheets on topics such as choosing where to live, finding a house, finding work etc – check out our Start Here for moving to Tasmania section. If you then need some personal assistance, get in touch with us.

INTERNATIONAL migrants are being sought to fill job gaps in the Tasmanian market across more than 182 occupations, ranging from bakers to brain surgeons.

But industry leaders, and those representing job seekers, are arguing there are a raft of professions that could be filled by Tasmanians — all that is needed is some greater flexibility and a change of attitude from employers and employees.

Tasmania has an unemployment rate of 6.5 per cent compared to the national rate of 6.2 per cent, while youth unemployment is the worst in the country at 16.9 per cent.

[Please refer to our more recent post showing the unemployment rate has in fact now fallen and is better than many other States]

The State Migration Plan Occupations List, which stipulates which occupations migrants can obtain visas for, shows there is the need for workers and professionals in 182 roles across the state. Roles include engineers, teachers, medical professionals, hospitality workers, services staff and tradespeople.

State Growth Minister Matthew Groom said the list identified industry sectors where there was a capacity or potential need to employ overseas workers.

“The  state visa nomination programs are carefully managed so that Tasmanians are given the first opportunities to fill the vacancies, while skilled migrants can fill the gap where specific skills are required which are not available locally,” he said.

But Noel Mundy, state director of welfare agency Mission Australia, said employers calling for five or even 10 years’ experience needed to reconsider.

Professions calling for up to a decade of experience include a raft of medical professions, civil engineering, winemaking, secondary school education, gasfitting, welding, locksmithing, panel beating and vehicle painting.

“A lot of those employers need to consider where they started,” Mr Mundy said. “Give young people a go. They want to work.”

He also said there needed to be a greater number of Tasmanians employed as apprentices. “You look at apprenticeships and there are very few of them, but that is where the employers started,” he said.

Tasmanian Hospitality Association general manager Steve Old said there was huge demand for hospitality workers in the state, with 1400 outstanding positions for chefs alone.

But he said the Federal Government’s system to help job seekers was not working and there were still many Tasmanians who did not want to work. Mr Old said a job agency recently told him it had 4000 jobseekers.

“[The agency] said a third of them just don’t want to work, a third were not sure if they were keen or not to work, and a third were willing to work,” he said.

Mr Old said about 10 per cent of the third willing to work might be keen or appropriate to work in hospitality. “The whole system is screwed and industries like ours can’t find people,” he said.

However, Mr Old said the State Government was working hard to fill the roles by identifying the importance of hospitality to the tourism industry and the broader economy.

“Hospitality is a crucial industry,” he said. “We are working on getting into schools to ensure that in four or five years we can fix the shortage.”

Mr Groom said business confidence would help to drive up the number of apprentices taken each year.

“We have clear guidelines in place on major government procurements worth more than $250,000 that apprentices or trainees undertake a minimum of 20 per cent of the total labour hours,” he said.

“Last year alone, we exceeded the total requirement by around 10 per cent.

“For businesses to take on more apprentices, which is a commitment of several years, they need to have the confidence to do so.”

Tasmanian Automobile Chamber of Commerce general manager Malcolm Little said a skills shortage was not as big an issue in the automotive industry, but there were still some gaps.

He said the ageing of workers in the sector meant retiring workers needed to be replaced by new employees with some experience.

“The bulk of the automotive industry is small to micro employers and in the last seven or eight years, life has been pretty difficult,” Mr Little said. “There has been an under-investment in training in the motor industry.”
