South Australia Needs Skilled Workers and Professional

Adelaide – the capital of Australia is considered one of the most livable cities in the world with a population of only 1.2 million, a booming economy that needs qualified workers in healthcare, engineering, infotech, hospitality and trades.  See the list of occupations that South Australia would sponsor for permanent residency.  Then log on to this link to know more about your future in this southern central state of Australia. http://www.migration.sa.gov.au

South Australia has been in a strong position to maximise opportunities emerging from our minerals, energy and resources boom.  Employment is 20 per cent higher than a decade ago and economic performance is steadily growing.

South Australia continues to be a global exporter of minerals and ores, wine, meat and seafood.
 
South Australia produces more than half of all Australian wine exports and is the world’s sixth largest wine producer (Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation).

The defence industry is going from strength to strength, recently winning $AUD10 billion in contracts which will create generational career opportunities.

Cutting-edge IT, simulation and biotech companies are flourishing and gaining international prestige with highly skilled expertise in demand.

The minerals and resource sector continues to boom. South Australia has a large supply of resources including uranium, iron, copper, gold, nickel and mineral sands. South Australia also continues to be a leader in renewable energy which supports the state’s environmental targets and contributes to a green future.

South Australia has a record 304 major projects either underway or in the pipeline, with a total value of $94 billion. We are currently enjoying tremendous growth that is attracting international, national and local investors across a wide range of sectors.

Skilled employment opportunities are available in many industry sectors including resources, health services, engineering, management and trades.
