So you have a trade and you’ve come to work in Australia?

Before you apply for a career in red meat processing, there are several different steps you can take to help you on your way.

What you need to know

For a start, it’s a good idea for you to check out the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection website (http://www.border.gov.au). Here you can find a lot of important information, including:

  • What criteria you need to meet to be eligible to work in Australia
  • The areas in which there are skills shortages
  • Information on visas
  • Information on using registered migration services.

If you need to speak with someone about being eligible to work in Australia, head to http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/state-territory-government-agencies, which lists the contact details for appropriate government agencies within every Australian state and territory.

Before applying for a role within the red meat processing industry, there are some other items to consider:

  1. Do you have a trade that could be used in meat processing?
  2. Have you checked that you meet all the criteria required by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection?
  3. Do you have all the required paperwork in place?
