Victoria: Small state, huge prospects for skilled migrants!
With a land area roughly that of Great Britain (227,416km2 to 216,777km2) Victoria is the smallest mainland state of Australia. Yet with a population of just over 5,000,000, there is plenty of room to spread your wings and build your prosperity.
The Premier of Victoria, says his state is “willing and able” to accept more skilled migrants.
Already Victoria takes 30 per cent of Australia’s intake of skilled migrants, even though Victoria is home to only 25 per cent of the nation’s population. In 2005-2006 it attracted the largest share of migrants granted state specific, or regional migration visas, of any state or territory.
Ballarat, Bendigo, Shepparton and Mildura are four of the fastest-growing regional cities, and all need skilled workers including builders, doctors and other health professionals and accountants.
The Victorian Health Minister, Ms Bronwyn Pike, says “… the similarities between training in the UK and Australia means doctors will meet requirements to practise their specialties in Victoria”. Shepparton obstetrician, Associate Professor Glen Teale, who left the UK in 2002, says, “People here have more fun. I do have a busy job, but I have time now to go swimming or horse riding, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that in England”.
Victoria is a highly desirable destination for health professionals and skilled workers of all kinds. Leading edge online visa advisory service LIVE IN australia.com is qualified to outline the opportunities there are in your field of skilled trades or profession.
