VETASSESS payslips

Hi

I am thinking of lodging assessment to VETASSESS (or possibly AIM). I don't have any payslips or proof of pay, as my position is match funded, i.e. I am a voluntary worker, working 35 hours per week, and have been for the last eight years. Would proof of match funding suffice in place of salary / payslips? I do have a small part time paid job, which is irrelevant to the position I would be getting assessed for. My voluntary work is senior/ corporate manager, or project coordinator, with management diploma, in voluntary/ third sector.

Is it a lost cause, or worth applying?

Hi -

Unfortunately VETASSESS will not consider volunteer work for skills assessment purposes, and DIAC will not consider volunteer work for points test purposes. The part-time job wouldn't be of much help.

That being said, can you talk more specifically about what "match funded" means? For instance, did you (or anyone else) receive payment directly related to your hours of work?

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. i had a feeling that would be the case.

The business (charity) receives funds commensurate with the salary of strategic business development manager as a direct result of my voluntary work. I only receive out of pocket expenses, such as fuel and subsistence. I built the business (charity) from scratch, and am the equivalent of a company director.

Many grant funders ask, before giving a grant, for match funding. If, say, they are willing to give a grant of, say, 50k, the charity needs to show that they can match fund this. This match fund is then shown as my voluntary work - I am working for the charity, in kind, to the same value.

All this is documented: I can provide job specification, strategic plans, business plans, references, job description and specification and job agreements. I just don't have payslips, but could provide evidence that I was paid 'in kind' by match funding, and this was the equivalent of me 'donating' x to the charity as a result of my skills and expertise. Basically, if I had been getting paid, I would be donating my whole salary to the charity.

Does this help in any way, or is it still a lost cause?

There's a slim chance you might be able to somehow portray the match funding as income, but it's a real long shot. You'd somehow need to directly link the amounts paid by the grant funders to your work, outline a scenario where if you might have been paid the money directly (probably not possible under match funding) and chose to redirect that money into the charity. Because the funds never passed through your bank account/possession, that alone may be the end of it, but if you had some sort of a written agreement with the charity that specified redirection instead of payment to you, you might have a (small) chance of getting this through.

Sorry, wish I had better news!

Best,

Mark Northam

Thanks, I had a feeling it would be a long shot anyway.

Possibly another way forward would be for me to find an employer to sponsor me instead. I do keep an eye on seek and the likes, but haven't applied for anything yet. Perhaps this would be a more realistic route.

I would rather have been able to go skilled independent route though, as I didn't want the 'what will happen in two/ four years' issue with temporary residence.

Hi Mark. I have been working with the United Nations as an International UN Volunteer for about 3 years now in Cote d'Ivoire. Its a full time work of 8 hours per day I have My employment letter and My payslips ( $2700 USD per month). Can this experience be considered for assessment by VETASSESS? for visa type 189. I need you advice

Hi Eazydune -

Thanks for the question. Hard to say - usually a "volunteer" is not paid, however you are paid. Would depend on the occupation you chose, what skills assessor was designated for that occupation, and what their policy is re: work experience. As for DIBP and work for points, if you could get the skills assessor to declare work as skilled work in your nominated occupation, you might get it through - all depends on the details.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi UCC -

The regulations for skills assessments (and DIBP applications) are far too complex to determine eligibility based on a few bullet points without seeing any documents - it would be nice if migration law was that simple, but it's far from it. Suggest you get professional assistance if you're serious about migration - skilled migration rules/regs are complex and overlapping between skills assessors, state sponsorship authorities and DIBP -

Re: your friend, not sure what his qualifications are in this area, however if you plan to claim any work experience for points for a skilled visa, you had better be ready to submit proof of payment for all years claimed either in the form of pay slips, tax documents, or some other third party, verifiable financial document.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam
