Widen your opportunities
Tasmania offers a range of employment opportunities with strong training and career prospects. Because of its compact nature, employees in Tasmania gain qualifications and experience that is often broader than would be expected in more populated areas. This means people wanting more responsibility and influence can fast track their careers.
Tasmanian tradespeople are sought after because of their breadth of working experience and knowledge. It is usual for electricians, for instance, to develop a diversity of experience in both building and construction, as well as in production or manufacturing facilities.
Tasmania has demand for skills in many different areas including IT, construction, hospitality, healthcare, finance and professional services.
The relatively high average age of workers in many industries means there are abundant opportunities for young people to take on rewarding and challenging roles.
The Tasmanian Government conducts an Employer of Choice program to recognise and promote organisations that attract and retain skilled staff by creating attractive places to work. A series of videos features award winning Tasmanian employers. Each of these business owners is experiencing a challenging and rewarding career while enjoying the benefits of Tasmania’s relaxed lifestyle.
The State’s Department of Economic Development, Tourism and the Arts can assist intending international migrants with a range of visa applications to the Australian Government. People with a genuine desire and realistic opportunity to live, work and invest in Tasmania for the long term can be assisted through various skilled and business visa programs.
All applicants must meet the Australian Government’s requirements for skilled or business migration.
