From our experience, a wide range of businesses need to hire IT (ICT) professionals under the 457 visa program. These business sponsors may not be IT (ICT) businesses but they require IT (ICT) professionals for the business operations.
For instance, some Sponsors of overseas ICT professionals include:
- Engineering companies
- Government Departments
- Online retail companies
While we understand that one of the biggest challenges for employer sponsored migration (subclass 457, 186 and 187) applicants is being offered a suitable job, Work Visa Lawyers do not offer jobs or employers for sponsorship.
We recommend that you try a range of methods to seek sponsorship from a company, such as:
- Using your existing contacts in Australia to locate opportunities
- Online job sites – Seek, Careerone…
- Social networking: Linkedin, Facebook…
