Should I inform I need a visa on CV?

Hi :)

I have been in tourism/hospitality industry for a while and was advised that hotel receptionist is on NT DAMA occupation list!

Though I am eligible to be sponsored as per an immigration lawyer I spoke to, unfortunately my employer does not sponsor people except chefs.
I am now trying to find a hotel to sponsor me before my working holiday visa expires, but should I say I need a visa on cover letter? That would be great if the ad clearly says they are able to sponsor, but I find it a rare case.

Hi Amy, and welcome mate! 👍

Bit of a tricky dilemma. My personal view is that asking for sponsorship by including a note as part of your cover letter is quite a big ask of the employer. For these type of roles, it may be a question to raise as part of a face-to-face discussion.

This way you at least get the opportunity to sell your case while letting the employer get to know you a little better. 

Please also keep in mind that employers need to legally advertise a role for 30 days before they can sponsor so there options may be limited in the early stages to! 

I highly recommend setting up a job alert using the broad search term 'hotel' so we can alert you if any jobs advertised with sponsorship are posted.

More details on how to do this here.

Sorry for late reply, but thank you for your advise.

Hopefully I can explain my situation well during the interview while showing I can contribute to the company I apply for.
