Skilled Migrant Employment Register

Western Australia (WA) has recently experienced its lowest unemployment rates since the resource boom and has a widespread need for skilled workers across many sectors and parts of the State. 

The Skilled Migrant Employment Register is a free initiative supporting employers and skilled migrants to connect to build the WA workforce.
