How to find the right sponsor?

How to find a company willing to sponsor me for Australian migration?

Finding a company to sponsor you on a work sponsored visa for Australian migration can be a challenging process.

Here are some steps you can take to increase your chances of finding a sponsor:

Research the job market

Research the Australian job market and identify the industries and occupations that are in demand. Check the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) to see if your occupation is in demand.

Network with people in your industry

Network with people in your industry, attend industry events, and join professional associations. This can help you learn about potential job opportunities and make connections with employers.

Search for job openings

Look for job openings on job search websites like Seek and Indeed, company websites, and recruitment agencies. Many companies advertise job openings on their websites, and some recruitment agencies specialize in helping foreign workers find sponsorship opportunities.

Contact companies directly

If you have identified a company that you would like to work for, reach out to them directly to inquire about sponsorship opportunities. You can send your resume and cover letter to their HR department or hiring manager.

Consider working with a migration agent

A migration agent can assist you with the visa application process and help you find sponsorship opportunities. They can also provide advice on the best visa options for your specific situation.

It's important to note that companies are not obligated to sponsor foreign workers, so finding a sponsor may take time and effort. It is recommended to have a strong skillset and qualifications in a high-demand occupation to increase your chances of finding a sponsor.



If you are sponsored by an Australian employer or an Australian state or territory, there are visa options for you.
