Australian Rail Industry seeking Engineering Migrants to fill shortages

The Australian Rail Industry has launched a skilled migration information website and kit. The skilled migration kit is aimed at employers in the rail industry to help them source talent both onshore and offhsore through skilled migration.

“The Australian rail industry has been struggling to attract engineers, project managers and skilled technical people including tradespeople due to a complex interplay of domestic and international competition for highly skilled labour. This is affecting the industry’s ability to meet high end workforce development needs including the completion of current government infrastructure projects. Therefore, identifying domestic and international labour market pools and recruiting skilled migrants onshore and offshore is vital to addressing skills shortages. Currently, migrant engineers represent over 50% of the yearly supply of engineers in Australia.”
