Hey Guys,

The website is correct. In Australia and in this case you don't need anything but a normal driver's licence to get a job as a dump truck operator. They provide all the training for you. I am not sure how your International licence will go however it is the same as a C class licence here so you would think ok.

If you want to work whilst in Australia your visa options are limited. A working holiday visa is a good start as its a foot in the door and allows you to look around.

Independent skilled migration visa (Temporary)

If you have recognized qualifications and can accrue 65 points you can apply for a Independent skilled migration visa (Temporary) You may also be eligible for Regional/State sponsorship. You will need to undertake an IELTS English test as part of your visa application.

An other option is a 457 Sponsored Employee Visa. This is harder in that you need to secure an Employer Sponsorship before you can apply. Again Regional Sponsorship can also assist and you should also undertake and ELTS Test.

Some industries/employers have an Labour agreement in which case it makes it easier to recruit outside workers. Most of these agreements are filled by recruitment companies the requirements to be met vary depending on the agreement

Some mining Companies are offering 'fly in fly-out' employment where they fly in workers from the major capitals for five days on and five days off or in come cases two to three week shifts.

Sponsorship has its draw backs in that you are bound to the sponsor and can not take on additional work beyond the sponsorship agreement. It is possible to change sponsors if need be but this is a hassle. You can only remain without a registered job for about 28 days. You will also need to negotiate the terms and conditions of your employment including travel, relocation and medical insurance.

This is a quick overview and I hope I have not left anything out. Each case is different and you should consult a Migration Agent or contact the department of Immigration.

Hope this has been of some help.
