Skilled migrant visa - Points for partner

Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding Skilled Independent application - partner points.

In points test it is mentioned that for 5 partner points the primary applicant’s partner will need to meet the following criteria:

a) nominate an occupation on the same SOL as the primary applicant, and be assessed by the relevant assessing authority as having suitable skills for the occupation!

1 Question: My partner was working as management accountant 8 years ago, but now is working something else in finance industry, so is it possible to nominate occupation on SOL 1 list ?

b) have been employed in a skilled occupation for at least 12 months in the 24 months before the application is lodged, or completed the Australian Study Requirement.

2 Question: Does this mean that my partner has to be employed in SOL 1 listed occupations in the last 24 months to claim points, or in any Skilled Australian Occupation from main national occupation list?

Thanks in advance for your help.
