Do you know someone looking for 457 visa sponsorship?

By 29 November 2015No Comments

VisaThe 457 visa is the most commonly used program for Australian or overseas employers to sponsor overseas skilled workers to live and work in Australia temporarily.

Holders of this visa may be employed for a period of up to four years and may bring any eligible family members, including same-sex partners, who have unrestricted work and study rights in Australia. Holders of the 457 visa have the ability to travel in and out of Australia whilst on this visa…

Employers must be approved by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as an approved sponsor. This is where Pendragon can assist…
Over the past 20 years, we have helped thousands of people live and work in Australia as well as hundreds of companies obtain overseas talent through our ‘On-Hire Labour Agreement’ with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Our DIBP On-hire agreement is managed by our in-house, registered migration team. This comprehensive and 100% compliant service is underpinned by knowledge born from having had an on-hire agreement since its inception and prior to that, our experience through the Standard Business Sponsor (SBS) 457 visa totaling close to 20 years. We truly are the experts in our field.
Being a boutique provider in our field, we pride ourselves on personal service and don’t look for a quick answer, we look for a long term solution.

The on-hire Labour Agreement allows sponsorship for 457 Visa holders to be on-hired to businesses. This provides the perfect solution for clients who can’t find talent locally and don’t have the facility to sponsor themselves.
Likewise the solution is ideal for foreign nationals themselves, whose skills are in demand here in Australia and who might find a role working for a client who is unable to sponsor them.

Some of the types of industries that we can sponsor individuals on a 457 visa include IT, Engineering, Sales and Marketing to name a few.

If you are looking for a 457 visa solution and you have a skilled international with the profession and experience that fall’s within the above categories, or you would like some general advice on 457 visas, please do not hesitate to contact one of our consultants to find out more information.
