If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

457 Visa superseded by the new 482 Visa

Last month saw the 457 Temporary Work Skilled Visa replaced by the new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) subclass 482 Visa. The requirements for the new visa have changed significantly and it would be advisable to speak to a professional if you are currently on a 457 visa or looking to apply for the new 482 visa. The TSS visa has been separated into three pathways including:

The short term stream;

The long term stream; and

The Labour Agreements stream.

Under the new TSS visa, the length of your visa may be determined by your occupational classification and your pathway to permanent residency may be impacted by this. The TSS visa also requires for applicants to have 2 years employment experience in addition to satisfying the minimum skill requirements.

We suggest reading the following articles for further information:

Here at Lookahead we have seen a slowdown of companies sponsoring as they wait for the changes to be finalised, but we’re hopeful that will change once things are settled.

We highly recommend speaking to a professional if you are uncertain about the changes surrounding the new visa.
