Exclamation What are my chances?

Hi all,

I've been contemplating applying for immigration to Australia under the skilled migrant programme.

Here are my credentials;

Age: 21
Nationality: British (born in the UK)
Education: Technical Diploma
Job Title: HR Administrator
Years of work experience: 3

I was looking to get feedback from yourselves if it is worth applying for a visa and are my chances of getting approved high, as the cost of applying is something i'm wary of.

Thanks for your help.

You probably need to get some higher level qualifications Ameen to have a chance with independent skilled immigration.
Have a look @ Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and one of the first links you will see is re Skilled Occupations List and so you need an occupation that is either on the SOL#3 or you could also check the SOL#4 to see if you have an occupation that could be on a State Migration Plan and if so then check individual state lists to see what states if any could have your occupation listed.
You'll find states links under the 176 visa eligibility section via Visa Options.

Also have a look at the Whats New Link from page above for that has info on priorities for processing and changes coming up for mid this year.

Another option you may want to consider seeing as @21 you have plenty of time is to apply for a Working Holiday Visa and you'll find details under Visitor in box at left of most Immi pages.
That'll allow you work in Australia and perhaps you get a good job and show your value to an organisation that can sponsor you via an employer sponsorship either for initially temporary residency leading to permanent residency or getting PR offered straight off.
Have a look at details via the Employer Sponsored Workers, again the box at left.
There is also an occupational list you'll find under position eligibility for the 457 tr visa or the ENSOL list for PR visas , both a bit broader than the independent skilled/SMP lists.

You might also want to consider fitting in three months of regional seasonal work which does not need to be all at once, but it will mean that you can apply for a second WHV and so have more time to seek an employer for sponsorship if need be, or it does give you a fallback to use later on if initial employer sponsorhip for TR does not work out for whatever reason.
