Current Available Job Sponsorships

I have three options to help you search for jobs with sponsorship in Australia.

Sponsored Jobs

The first option is a website that lists ONLY jobs in Australia with potential sponsorship. It’s a great setup, because it stops you from having to go through ALL the job listings looking specifically for sponsorships.

It is a subscription website, but at just $10 per month for the Basic Job Seeker option and $20 per month for Serious Job Seekers, it’s excellent value and a real time saver.

On the homepage, if you scroll down, you will be able to see live and up-to-date information showing you how many sponsored jobs are currently available for various industries.

How to Find a Sponsored Job in Australia

The second option is The Find Sponsored Jobs in Australia ePackage which was created by Nadine Myers, who also runs the website mentioned above. It’s a fully comprehensive guide packed with tips and tricks to help you find that sponsored job down under. It’s also great for finding any job, whether you need sponsorship or not.

Tips on finding a sponsored job

Finding an employer to sponsor you so that you can come and work here in Australia isn’t easy. The task is made even more difficult for those of you trying to apply for jobs from outside of Australia.

What not to do

  • The biggest DO NOT tip I give anybody looking for sponsorship though is to not pay large fees in advance in return for the promise of a sponsored job, or any job in Australia.
  • The exception is if you are asked to pay your own visa application fee and a fee to a MARA registered migration agent to arrange your visa. You should only pay these fees after having received a written job offer. You should also get a written contract from the MARA agent explaining the exact costs and what they are for. There is more information about this below.

Please bear this advice in mind throughout the whole process as once you leave this website, you will be dealing directly with a recruitment company, a potential employer or maybe some other kind of agency.

This is a quite natural process in recruitment.

It is unlikely to happen, but if it does, be very wary of any organisation or company that asks you for a large upfront fee to secure a job, especially if the securing of that potential job seemed a little too easy. If you get offered a job after one short telephone conversation, be suspicious, very suspicious.

About sponsored jobs and the visa

The big difference between applying for a job in your own country and applying for a job sponsorship here in Australia is that you will, at some point, need to secure a visa that will allow you to work here.

Some jobs are offered where the employer is willing to sponsor you on a temporary work visa for an occupation that appears on one of the Short-term, Medium-term or Long-term Strategic Skills Lists. Whilst some employers might help you with some relocation expenses, it is quite rare that they will pay for everything and it is usually left to yourself to cover the cost of your visa.

So, at some point you will be expected to pay your portion of the migration costs and usually the recruitment company or your prospective employer will introduce you to their preferred migration agent.

Please DO make sure you are dealing with a MARA registered migration agent and that you get everything in writing, something they are obliged to do under their own Code of Conduct.

These are the kind of things you will probably want to know:

  • A breakdown of the full costs of your visa, including agent fees
  • Exactly what your contribution will need to be for the whole process
  • What is being covered by your future employer and what isn’t
  • And precise details of the exact visa you will be applying for
  • I’m probably being over cautious with all these warnings, but the advice I’m giving here is for anybody searching for a sponsorship in Australia through any channel, not just this website.

If you are in any doubt, if any job offer you get from anyone anywhere makes you feel in any way suspicious, get a second opinion, preferably a legal one.

Finding jobs in Australia, sponsored or not

The third option, which is free, is to simply search for jobs yourself in Australia, whether you require sponsorship or not. The following page has many useful links to job search portals, and also will help you to find out how much you can expect to earn for your skill here in Australia. Please visit:

Important message about CVs, resumes and comments

If you are going to apply for jobs in Australia, do make sure you have a Resume/CV that is specifically tailored for the Australian market. Yes, it’s all done a little differently here, so it’s a good idea to fall in line to reduce the chances of your resume going straight in the bin.

If you want professional help with this, I recommend The Resume Centre:

The Resume Centre

Please DO NOT…

  • Send me your CV or resume direct, as I have said, I’m not a recruiter. I do not store or keep CV’s as I have no way of referencing them for future employment opportunities.
  • Ask me to help you directly with your job search as many people have already done in the comments below. I cannot help anyone directly, I simply don’t work in this industry.
  • Ask me what your chances of getting a sponsorship or any kind of job in Australia, it’s simply an impossible question to answer.
  • I strongly advise you not to publicly post your contact details in any form in the comments below asking people to get in touch if they have a job for you. Expect, at the very least, to get spammed and at the very worst to have someone contact you directly and scam you for money in exchange for a non-existent job. You have been warned. Posting a comment on this website is NOT the correct way to try and find a job in Australia.

Those asking any of these questions will no longer get a response.

Good luck with your search for a job in Australia.

    May I please remind everybody here to not send documents via email to anonymous sources who post here and offer to help you find work in Australia. If you do this it is more likely that you will be scammed for money or worse, have your identity stolen.

    Anybody posting here requesting documents by email will have their comment deleted.

    Many thanks, Bob
