Jobs in Western Australia
At Visa Go Australia we have lots of employers looking for skilled people like you!
You may notice many of our jobs are based in regional Western Australia. This is where our Migration Agent Darren is from – the southwest of Australia.
Below, we outline some reasons why regional WA could be an excellent place for you to relocate.
Why we love regional WA
With an abundance of jobs and visa options, WA is a popular place for expats. Learn some of the reasons why we love this state!
Australia’s southwest has some of the world’s best beaches! Think white sand, clear waters and no crowds. If you love the beach, then WA is perfect for you. The warm weather and beaches make for excellent fishing, water sports and general recreation.

You can expect a good choice of schools, hospitals, sporting facilities, shops, and restaurants. Bunbury is a major employment hub, while Busselton has an airport that attracts FIFO workers.
Over COVID the southwest region grew in popularity as people relocated from Perth city. This has created a rise in house prices, however it’s still an affordable place to relocate to. Regional WA offers beachside living with all the required lifestyle amenities. Bunbury and Busselton have seen lot of growth in the 25-35 age bracket, who are choosing to enjoy the Southwest lifestyle.

Australia’s southwest region is famous for its food and wine scene. If you’re a foodie, you’ve probably heard of Margaret River. This is a popular place for locals to ‘staycation’, with a range of wineries, breweries, and restaurants.
You’ll find ample accommodation, from spa hotels to eco resorts and caravan parks. Plus, there’s lots of children’s activities like mini-golf and play parks. And don’t forget the beaches! If you’re living in the southwest you have a number of beautiful road trips on your doorstep.

Thinking of moving to Australia? Learn about the benefits of completing a skills assessment.
Completing a skills assessment for Australia
A skills assessment is a review of your qualifications and/or work experience. Depending on your occupation, it involves a document review and sometimes a practical assessment and interview.
A positive skills assessment is proof you meet Australian occupational standards.
Why should I complete a skills assessment?
Completing a skills assessment for Australia can bring many benefits.
Expand your visa options
A skills assessment is the first step of applying for an Australian skilled visa. This includes popular visa
subclasses 189, 190 and 491.
It’s also beneficial when applying for an employer sponsored visa. A positive skills assessment may offer you the chance of permanent residency, in applying for the 494 visa.
Increase your Australian employability
An Australian skills assessment shows employers you have the skills to do the job. In such a competitive job market, a skills assessment can be the difference of an employer reviewing your CV and not.
Commitment to Australia
It takes time, money and motivation to complete a skills assessment. This demonstrates your commitment to working in Australia.
Moreover, most Australian employers favour those with a skills assessment because it shows long-term intentions. With a positive skills assessment you can apply for the 494 visa (permanent residency). To be eligible for the 494 visa, you must work for 3 years in a Regional Area and meet the taxable income threshold. Full details are on the Department website.
Employer sponsorship is costly and time consuming for businesses. A positive skills assessment can help you build that trust with them, whilst expanding your visa options. It’s a win-win.

Learn how Australian farmers can hire international workers under the Dairy Industry Labour Agreement.
The Dairy Industry Labour Agreement
The dairy industry is facing ongoing labour shortages across Australia. In response, The Australian Government has created the Dairy Industry Labour Agreement.
This agreement allows farmers to employ overseas workers under two occupations.
Farms can sponsor workers under the following visa categories:
- Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482)
- Employer Nomination Scheme visa (subclass 186) after a 3-year transition period
- Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 494)
The worker’s visa can last up to 4 years, with the possibility of extension.
The process of hiring overseas workers
Hiring international talent can be time consuming and costly for the employer. The process can be broken down into 3 steps.
- Farm applies to be approved under the Labour Agreement – You must submit an application to the department, evidencing why you need to hire someone from overseas. It’s free to apply for a labour agreement, which lasts 5 years.
- Nominate the employee – the worker must meet the criteria set by the department. This generally includes being under the age of 55, speaking English and no health or criminal issues. The employee must also have relevant qualifications or a minimum of 2-3 years work experience in the occupation you’re nominating. Full details can be found on the department website.
- Apply for the employee’s visa – lodge a visa application through IMMI Account. The worker can include their spouse and dependent children on this visa.
There are additional obligations for the employer. For example, you must employ the worker on a full-time basis and pay them a fair wage.
We understand the process of hiring international workers can seem daunting. At Visa Go Australia we can help. We have an experienced migration agent to process all visa requirements. We also have a database of CV’s and can advertise the job position for you.

There are many reasons to move to Australia as an electrician. Keep reading to find out why!
Electricians earn big money in Australia
Electricians have high earning potential in Australia. Some parts of Australia offer salaries which are double that of the UK! If you’re looking for a better wage as an electrician, then Australia is a great option.
Maintenance Electricians earn between $80,000-$110, 000 AUD per year. In Western Australia, electricians can expect to earn $100, 000-$120, 000 AUD. This is the equivalent of around £69, 000 GBP.
Electricians working in the mining industry earn $112-$160, 000 AUD. In Western Australia, electricians can expect to earn $140-$180, 000 AUD. This is the equivalent of around £100, 000 GBP.
Australia offers opportunities for electricians to earn good wages, and in turn, an amazing lifestyle! Higher wages can offer the freedom to work less hours, have more family holidays, or even retire early! The potential to work in Australia and comfortably earn $100, 000 is a great incentive to move to Australia as an electrician.
Plenty of job opportunities
The country’s low uptake of vocational training has created a shortage of traditional trades, such as electricians. According to National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), Electricians are among the most in-demand tradespeople in Australia. You will not struggle to find electrical jobs in Australia.
Electrician is in the top 5 jobs employers need filling across key industries (Hays Australia Salary Guide 2022-2023). This includes electrical jobs in mining, manufacturing, and operating industries.
So if you’re an electrician moving to Australia, there will be a job opportunity nearby.
The Australian lifestyle
If you’re considering a move to Australia, then it’s probably in search of a better life. In Australia you can expect an outdoor lifestyle with lots of sunshine. In summer it’s common for tradesmen working outdoors to start their day early to avoid the midday heat.
With an abundance of land, Australian houses are some of the biggest in the world. If you’re moving to Australia this can be a massive advantage. Imagine more living and outdoor space to raise a family!
How to move to Australia as an Electrician
Are you ready to move to Australia? There may be several visa options available to you, so it’s best to speak with a Migration Agent to find out what’s best suited.
Electrician is on Australia’s skills list. This means skilled visas and employer sponsored visas are available. Australia’s working holiday visa is another popular option to live in work in Australia as an electrician.
To work in Australia, you will need to become licensed. To get your Australian electrical licensing you must complete a skills assessment with Future Skills International. The skills assessment is also the first part of applying for an Australian skilled visa, so it’s a necessary investment.

Are you interested in migrating to Australia as a chef? Because now may be the perfect time! Learn about Chef skills assessment Australia. Australia’s hospitality industry has critical skills shortages, with chefs and cooks in high demand. Moreover, there are skilled visa pathways for chefs in many Australian states. Below, we explain the skilled visa process for a chef.
Chef Skills Assessment Australia
To emigrate to Australia as a chef, you must first complete a skills assessment. All skilled visa applicants must have their skills assessed to ensure they match Australian standards.
A chef skills assessment for Australia is completed with VETASSESS.
The assessment consists of two parts.
- Document review – submitting evidence of training, paid employment and detailed references
- Technical interview – an interview completed online with an Australian assessor
Top tip: It is important to determine whether you should apply as a chef or a cook. While both occupations have overlapping tasks, there are some key differences. Consequently, VETASSESS will look at employment references for managerial tasks to qualify as a chef.
EOI for Chefs
Following a positive skills assessment, applicants must lodge an EOI (Expression of Interest). An EOI is an online application which registers your interest in migrating to Australia.
It’s at this stage where applicants should select which visa subclass and state to apply to. The visa category applied under will be determined by your points score and available sponsoring states. You can calculate your points score using our free assessment.
Once submitted, your EOI will generate your points score. Generally, the more points the better. Consequently, we recommend completing an English Language test to increase your overall points. A recognised test can award you up to 20 extra points.
Additionally, some states require an ROI (Registration of Interest), which is separate from the EOI. Submitting an EOI and ROI does not guarantee an invitation to apply for a skilled visa. It can be helpful seeking advice from an experienced migration agent. A good migration agent will advise you on your chances of securing a skilled visa, and outline any risks involved. Our migration agent offers visa consultations for just £60.
State Sponsorship for Chefs
Chef is on the MLTSSL. This means applicants can apply independently (subclass 189) or through state sponsorship (subclasses 190 and 491). Some applicants may also be eligible for family sponsorship under subclass 491. This depends on where your family member lives, and how closely related they are. Find out more on our website.
In our experience, most applicants will require state or family sponsorship to secure a skilled visa. This is because the extra points gained from sponsorship helps secure an invitation to apply for a skilled visa.
Visa subclasses 189 and 190 are permanent residency visas, whereas the 491 is a temporary visa with a pathway to permanent residency. You can learn more on our skilled visa page, or by completing our free online visa assessment. All our visa assessments are reviewed by our migration agent for free.
Most states are offering sponsorship to chefs, however each state set their own criteria. For example, South Australia and Western Australia only sponsor chefs currently living and working in their state (at the time of writing). Others require job offers, minimum work experience and other specifications. You can check State Government websites for full eligibility details, or book a consultation with our migration agent
If you are interested in migrating to Australia as a Hairdresser, now may be the perfect time! There are skilled visa pathways for Hairdressers in several Australian states. Below, we explain the skilled visa process for hairdressers.
Skills Assessment for Hairdressers
Hairdressers migrating to Australia are required to complete a skills assessment through VETASSESS. VETASSESS are the only Trades Recognition Australia-approved registered training organisation to conduct skills assessments for hairdressing. The assessment is completed in two parts: a document review, followed by a technical interview. You can learn more about the skills assessment on our dedicated webpage. Moreover, you can download the VETASSESS Factsheet for hairdressing.
EOI for Hairdressers
Following a positive skills assessment, applicants need to lodge an EOI (Expression of Interest). This is an online application which registers your interest in migrating to Australia. This is when you select which visa subclass and state you wish to apply to. Some states require a registration of interest in addition to the EOI.
The visa category you apply under will be determined by your points score and the available sponsoring states. The more points the better, which is why we recommend completing an English Language test to increase your overall points score.
State Sponsorship for Hairdressers
As Hairdresser is on the STSOL, applicants will require state sponsorship under the 190 or 491 visa subclasses. The 190 visa is a permanent residency visa, whereas the 491 is a temporary visa with a pathway to permanent residency. You can learn more on our dedicate skilled visa webpage, or by completing our free online visa assessment.
Each state will have their own set of requirements, so it is important to check you meet these before applying. You can check state Government website for full details.
Emigrate to NSW as a Hairdresser
New South Wales is currently open to offshore applicants (anyone residing outside Australia). You can read the full requirements on the NSW Occupation List.
At Visa Go Australia we’ve had multiple hairdressers successfully receive invitations for New South Wales. The invitations were under the 190 visa, which means these clients will receive Australian permanent residency when their visas are granted and they enter Australia. State sponsorship options are limited for Hairdressers, so the competition is fierce. If you are interested in emigrating to NSW, then now is a great time to apply.
Is now a good time to take your teaching career to Australia? As Australia reopens its borders and introduces visa incentives, now could be the perfect time to teach in Australia. Below, we outline some key considerations when making the move to teach in Australia.
A visa to teach in Australia
To enter Australia, you will need an appropriate visa. Below, we outline the main visa types available to those wishing to live and work Down Under.
Australian Working Holiday
A popular option due to the low cost and fast processing times, the working holiday visa allows you to live and work in Australia for up to 3 years. From 19 January 2022, visa holders can work for the same employer for more than 6 months, without requesting permission.
Over the next 12 weeks, the Australian government will provide a visa fee rebate for WHM (Working Holiday Makers). WHM who travel to Australia and arrive between 19 January 2022 and 19 April 2022 will be refunded the visa fee ($495) for WHM visa application. The refund applies to both current offshore visa holders and new applicants who arrive within that period.
A skilled visa (subclass 189, 190 and 491) is suitable for those wanting to live in Australia permanently. This visa takes around 12 months to process, considering the different processes involved, and will cost around £3000. Depending on the subclass applied for, you will become a permanent resident of Australia or have a viable pathway to do so. You must be under the age of 45 at the time of invitation to apply for a skilled visa. You do not require an Australian job offer for this visa type.
Seek advice from a migration agent via our free skilled visa assessment.
Some Australian employers may be willing to offer you a job and sponsorship. An employer sponsored visa allows you to temporarily live in Australia whilst working for your nominated employer. You must first find an employer to sponsor you before applying for the visa.
Additional pathways could include a partner visa or student visa. You can learn more about these options on our website. For most Australian visas, applicants must not have any substantial medical or criminal issues.
The Government recently announced a temporary relaxation of working hours for student visas. This allows students to work more than 20 hours per week.
Teaching opportunities in Australia
Once your visa is granted you can turn your attention to securing a teaching job. If you are on a working holiday visa throughout 2022, you will have the usual option of doing casual relief teaching (supply/subbing/temp) or looking into securing a contract role.
For those on long term visas, the options are open. It can be a great idea to try some early childhood services or schools out first through casual work. However you may prefer to get straight into a role and have full ownership over the class/es you teach. The teaching opportunities in Australia are plentiful, and seeking advice from a recruiter such as ANZUK Education can be helpful.
Camille at ANZUK Education agrees that now is a great time to teach in Australia!
“Over the past couple of years we have seen an increased demand for teaching professionals in Australia. This includes casual teachers and teachers in contract and ongoing roles across Australia. We work with early childhood services and schools throughout the East Coast of Australia in metropolitan and regional areas. If you are looking for a change, now is the time to pack your suitcase and start your Aussie adventure.” Camille at ANZUK Education

Sue made our whole process stress free.
We honesty could not have done it all with out knowledge and support.
I have already been recommending visa go to friends who are looking to start the process.
Thank you so much again!!!
Sue was a dream to deal with and thoroughly checked over all of our documents ensuring that everything was of the exacting standards of the Australian Government. We could not have completed process without Sue. Thank you once again for all of your help.
Sue was amazing throughout, keeping us updated each step of the way, and providing detailed guidance at the start of each stage, which enabled us to start preparing and collating everything needed for the next part when the time came. Sue’s replies to the many emails that I've sent her way over the course of this process, were always prompt and patient, and nothing ever seemed to much trouble. Sue’s experience and understanding of the processes, timelines and the strict format in which things had to be done, meant that she was able to advise us and provide guidelines, which meant that when we submitted each stage, we were not having to worry about delays due to incomplete applications.
18 months on from that initial meeting - we have now been living and working in Australia for 8 months, and have recently changed onto a permanent visa.
We are extremely glad that we chose to work with Visa Go, and want to say a massive thank you to Sue, Darren and the team for all of their support and assistance throughout.
Darren always took the time to answer any questions and help me through the process.
Within weeks he had my partner visa submitted and now I have my permanent residency!
I couldn’t thank Darren and the team enough 👍
My case officer, Sue, has been very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process providing great customer service, from providing the documents required to promptly replying to all queries.
So, to Darren, Kimberley and Sue, thank you all for your support to achieve my Visa.
Our visa process took 11 months (as expected for the visa we applied for) and Sue kept us on track and up to date all the time, extremely organised and always happy to help and provide us with her support.
I highly recommend Visa Go Australia, we couldn't imagine trying to go through this process without Sues help and guidance. Samantha Mills
Can't thank Darren and Kimberley enough.
Calam, Charlie and Rory
