New Occupations added to the State Lists for Tasmania and South Australia

South Australia, as well as Tasmania Government, revised the skilled occupations list over the weekend with Tasmania and South Australia publishing their revised lists earlier today.  

South Australia: 

South Australia specifically highlighted occupations which are now seen as classed as “low availability” including: 

  • 139914            Quality Assurance Manager
  • 263113            Network Analyst
  • 411713            Family Support Worker 

Also, 29 occupations were shifted to supplementary list where special conditions include.  Examples of such occupations include: 

  • 612115            Real Estate Representative
  • 313113            Web Administrator
  • 312511            Mechanical Engineering Draftsperson
  • 312511            Mechanical Engineering Draftsperson 

South Australia continues to operate using two lists.  A supplementary skilled list contains 297 occupations which are those that have not identified as being in shortage; they are available to limited applicants who can demonstrate employment outcomes or family links to support human capital and economic objectives of South Australia’s participation in the skilled migrant program. The list is available to international graduates of South Australia; skilled migrants who are working in a skilled occupation in South Australia (minimum time periods apply); have immediate family members permanently residing in South Australia who can support their settlement whilst seeking employment; or who demonstrate strong employability qualities (based on scoring very highly on the Department of Home Affairs Points Test).
