Question Can I work in Australia?

Hello to all the members Im new here. I posted this question yesterday but didnt see it so im not sure if it will get posted twice. I am a 29 year old tower crane operator who is a citizen of Canada a currently working in Canada. I have my canadian tower crane and dogging license and later this year I am going to australia to get the australian equivelent of the tower crane and dogging licenses. CT tower crane license to be more specific. My question is if I get offered a job from an Australian employer can I be sponsored for a work visa even if tower crane is not on the occupation shortage list? I should also mention I have over 5 years experience in the field and a working holiday visa is not an option for me as I already used it up. Thank you.

Yes an employer can sponsor you off list providing that they meet criteria to be a sponsoring organisation.

This is not an immigration advice

So like a large construction company could most likely qualify?

which city do you tend to work in? if it is Melbourne (or in Victoria region), I would suggest you go to this website, you can find all the information you need in relation to the working visa. http://www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au...and-employment. hope it would help.

Super tough to get a sponsorship approved if the occupation is not on the Skilled Occupation List. The employer will have to provide evidence that there is no other options available, and that the only way they can fill the position is to sponsor. The right research and contacts, you might be able to get on to a sponsor.
