We have been waiting anxiously for the release of the new ACT State Sponsorship lists, and here they are:
Thankfully, the ACT has clearly given a lot of consideration to the skills shortages in the ACT. And the news is good on all fronts – tradesmen/women, engineers, IT professionals, and health professionals are just some of the skilled workers required in the ACT. Here is more information about the ACT’s guidelines:
With a population of just over 300,000, the ACT is not so much as “territory” as it is a city. In fact, it comprises Australia’s Capital City, Canberra, it houses Australia’s High Court, and it is surrounded by great countryside.
The ACT has long been maligned by many as a boring bureaucratic hub, but it is in fact much more than that. As the seat of Government it has great job potentials, it is young, vibrant, safe, and within driving distance of Sydney and Melbourne.The ACT has the lowest unemployment rate and the highest paid salaries. And the ACT representatives are extremely keen to offer help and information so that all new migrants are well settled in on arrival to the ACT.
