Work as an Electrician in Australia

Australia is starting to feel the crunch of a shortage of qualified Electricians.  Industries in Australia need qualified Electricians from the UK and Ireland to keep up with demand.

There are two main visa options for UK and Irish Nationals who want to work in Australia: Skilled Migration and Working Holiday Visas.

The General Skilled Migration Programme is designed to allow skilled workers and their families to emigrate to Australia. Electricians are highly encouraged to complete an Online Skilled Visa Assessment.

The Working Holiday Visa Programme is designed to allow people between 18 and 30 years of age to live, work and travel in Australia for up to 24 months. You can now apply online for a Working Holiday Visa to Australia.
