We’ve been running this website for over 14 years and fair to say that we have received numerous requests for a list of Australian companies willing to sponsor. The problem that our visitors face is that, in general, they don’t live in Australia (a shocking statement I know) so they don’t know where to look. The other problem that exists is Australian companies (that are willing to sponsor), don’t know the name of the popular job boards used in other countries that attract people looking for Sponsored jobs in Australia so they can’t actively advertise to potential candidates seeking sponsorship in Australia.
The net result is that they advertise on the Australian job sites that Australian employers are familiar with; however, potential candidates are not, so there is a big disconnect between the Australian companies willing to sponsor and the candidates seeking sponsorship.
List of Australian companies willing to sponsor
When looking for sponsored jobs in Australia, it’s essential to know whether an employer can sponsor you. It isn’t enough that your occupation is on the skilled list. Employers in Australia who wish to sponsor employees must meet strict eligibility criteria and register their interest in sponsoring candidates with the Australian migration department.
The next challenge is that although employers need to register the fact that they are willing to sponsor, the Australian government does not list this information publically. SO how do you find a list of Australian companies willing to sponsor? This is where we can help. 😊
Since 2016 we have been publishing jobs on gettingdownunder.com where the Australian company is willing to Sponsor. Although a definitive list of Australian companies willing to sponsor isn’t available, we have been able to provide a consolidated job board where every job advertised is offering sponsorship.
Finding jobs offering Sponsorship
We do this by automatically trawling the largest job sites in Australia at numerous times during the day. During this trawling exercise, our job spider searches for job adverts that indicate that the company is willing to sponsor. We use over 40 different search terms (as an example, “482 sponsorship available” or “willing to sponsor” If the job advertisement meets these criteria we take a snapshot of the job advert, add it to our job board database and include a link back to the original job advert so you can apply.
Where the job adverts may be a little vague, we place these into a queue for manual ‘cleansing’. We found that in some instances, jobs advertised as offering sponsorship sometimes actually aren’t. In this scenario, we review these jobs and manually remove the ones offering sponsorship that clearly cannot (eg. part-time house cleaner). Once we’ve checked this list, we’ll add the legitimate jobs where the companies are willing to sponsor to our database so you can view these sponsored jobs here or by clicking the banner below.
