The Australian government will conspicuously ramp-up its attempts to attract senior tech leaders, experts, and researchers developers to migrate permanently to Australia below a newly established system which actively explores out talent, rather than anticipating for it to come knocking.
Global talent independent program (GTIP) silently begun in June 2019. Citizenship, Migrant Services, Immigration, and Multicultural Affairs Minister David Coleman is anticipated to give out important information about how the migrant headhunting design will work, and also sectors and industries that are included.
The program will remain independently to the ‘global talent employer-sponsored program’ (GTES), which was established permanent in the previous week following a 12-month pilot.
As per the Home Affairs Department, the GTIP scheme is intended to bring proficient migrants at the top of their occupation to Australia. The program will bring the most skilled talent from around the globe.
It will generate opportunities for citizens of Australia by transferring skills and producing job openings. We will support this program in Australia and abroad, said Home Affairs.
Home Affairs Department states it will work with Australian businesses, and governments to bring global expertise from around the globe and that Global Talent officials will work in critical locations in overseas.
They will also operate with regional industries to recognize skilled people and attend key industry exhibitions and expos and improve life in Australia.
However the expertise pool of 5000 GTIP positions will not be added to present migration numbers, a spokesperson for the Citizenship, Immigration, Multicultural Affairs, and Migrant Services Minister told.
The spokesman told 5,000 positions have been kept aside within our permanent migration program (fixed at 160,000 positions) for GTIP.
Home Affairs officials will be placed in critical abroad locations to seek out the most desirable people in high growth businesses, and support them to come to Australia to promote the growth in those industries, the spokesman told.
An officer is now in Berlin, and supplementary staff will start work in the next month in the United States, Santiago, Singapore, Shanghai, and Dubai.
By attracting the best talent in high growth businesses, we will assist in building companies that will hire huge numbers of Australians in high skill, top wage jobs.
