The Queensland State government is attending a seminar in Liverpool on 19 July to encourage skilled local people to live and work down under.
Both Australia and New Zealand have major skills shortages and are looking to the UK to recruit the thousands of workers they need.
Paul Arthur, director of The Emigration Group said:
“New Zealand and Australia are in the middle of an economic boom and there are now thousands of job opportunities which need to be filled by skilled workers from overseas. Sectors where there are particular shortages down under are in the automotive, medical, IT and construction fields, but there are a vast range of job opportunities for skilled Brits and both countries are actively encouraging migration down under.”
According to Paul the gap between supply and demand for highly skilled staff has grown substantially over the past three years and there is no sign of it declining any time soon. He said: “In New Zealand in particular over 35 per cent of employers are now taking new measures to attract overseas staff such as increased starting salaries, clearer development paths and additional training.”
Australia and New Zealand are consistently rated as being amongst the best countries to live in the world, with cities like Auckland and Melbourne consistently voted in the top three cities to live for quality of life (Mercer Quality of Living Survey).
“Many Brits are looking for a better work life balance, where they can enjoy quality free time and a successful career. Australia and New Zealand are countries that offer this lifestyle opportunity and now with so many shortages there is a good chance that your occupation is on the ‘in demand list’, which means you could be eligible for a permanent residence visa.”
At the seminar migration experts and the Queensland government will be on hand to give you all the advice you need on emigrating down under. Tickets must be booked in advance, £15 for one or £25 per couple.

“There has never been a better time to work overseas. Workers who are struggling here have the opportunity to move down under, enjoy a successful career and a lifestyle which is second to none.”
