Join this week’s webinar: Have your questions answered about Labour Agreements to secure workers from overseas

Inside Ageing’s writer on migration matters, Melanie Macfarlane from MM Migration will be presenting as part of a live webinar to assist readers navigate the recently announced changes to labour agreements. Melanie, who contributed a series of informative articles on the topic last year, is well-equipped to provide valuable insights to help employers apply directly or be better prepared to use a consultant.

The newly introduced Aged Care Industry Labour Agreement has opened avenues for aged care providers to sponsor overseas workers through the Temporary Skill Shortage and Employer Nomination Scheme visas. However, providers must demonstrate genuine recruitment efforts and have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with relevant unions.

Under the Skilled Migration program, eligible providers can now sponsor overseas workers for the Temporary Skill Shortage (subclass 482) visa in various direct care occupations, including Nursing Support Worker, Personal Care Assistant, and Aged or Disabled Carer.

It was recently reported that Perth’s Curtin Heritage Living has become the first aged care operator to utilise the newly introduced visa system. In the first year of their five-year agreement, they have nominated 30 individuals for the visa.

The upcoming live webinar, hosted by Inside Ageing and MMMigration, aims to equip attendees with the necessary information to either apply directly for the visa or if they choose to utilise a migration consultant, be better prepared for the process. The live format of the webinar allows participants to pose questions specific to their requirements during the session or at the time of registration.

For ongoing reference, a video recording of the webinar will be provided. This ensures that attendees can access valuable insights at any time or share it with relevant staff. If you cannot attend on the day still register and we can send you the recording.
