Tasmania offers a range of business and employment opportunities for skilled and business migrants. Tasmanian employees tend to rapidly gain experience that is broader than in the big cities. People in search of responsibility and influence can often fast-track their progress.
At present, the State needs skilled and innovative people in the fields of health, engineering, mechanics and construction trades.
There is also demand for skills in education, agriculture, energy, fisheries and information and communication technology, Antarctic and Southern Ocean research, infrastructure, marine manufacture, minerals and mining, tourism, services and retailing.
As well as employment opportunities, Tasmania offers an exceptional lifestyle in one of the world’s most beautiful environments.
Tasmania’s Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts sponsors migrants under Australia’s Skilled Sponsored and Skilled Regional Sponsored visa programs.
