London employment expo to help skilled workers emigrate to Australia
The Australian Government is hosting an employment expo in London during September to help employers find skilled workers from the UK.
The employment expo will play host to representatives from major Australian employers and all Australian state and territory governments who hope to attract skilled workers to emigrate to Australia.
There is still a critical need for skilled workers across a range of Australian industries. The Skills Australia Needs Expo in London will target the industries most in need of skilled workers, such as the mining, health and construction industries.
Expo participants will be able to find out more about possible career pathways down under.
The last UK expo was held in 2009 and featured 38 exhibitors including Australian employers, government organisations and relocation service providers. More than 1800 people from the UK who had skills in high demand in Australia also attended.
The expo was seen as a success for both industry representatives and people attending: 90 per cent of participants said they would recommend future expos to friends, while 80 per cent thought they might have met a suitable sponsor for migration to Australia as a result of the expo.
The Skills Australia Needs expo will be staged in London on September 11 and 12.
