FEBRUARY 2016 – ACT OCCUPATION LIST PUBLISHED

The 23 February 2016 update of the ACT Occupation List has now been published

There has been an increase in the number of occupations in demand in the ACT. In summary:

  • The skills need has eased for child care centre managers and panel beaters. These occupations are now closed.
  • The demand for skills within the communications, construction, finance, hospitality and real estate sectors is increasing. Occupations within these sectors have now opened.
  • The ‘open’ status of the following occupations remains unchanged indicating a continual high demand for civil engineers, general practitioners, retail pharmacists, early childhood teachers, architects, medical imaging professionals, registered nurses, counsellors and psychologists.

A comparison of occupations identified as ‘in demand’ in February 2016 compared to August 2015 is attached.

  1. Over the last two years, the ACT Skilled Migration Program has re-focused its skill attraction activities to give priority to Canberra residents working in skilled occupations, or their immediate family living overseas who can demonstrate good employment prospects in the Territory.
  2. Interstate graduates who have lived and worked in Canberra in their nominated occupation for at least 6 months are also eligible to apply for ACT nomination (even if their occupation is closed).

This list is effective immediately.  Applications submitted and lodged before 23/02/16 will be assessed against the ‘at time of application’ criteria.
