Skills shortages exist throughout Australia – get the skills you need from the UK and Ireland UK and Ireland roadshow, March 2014

hosted by

THE ESSENTIALS Despite a slowdown in our economy we’re still the lucky country. An unemployment rate of 5.5% is one of the lowest in the world, yet skill shortages are an issue for over 50% of Australian employers. DIAC are targeting 190,000 skilled migrants this year to plug the gaps. Meet and recruit the skills you need at the Opportunities Overseas Expo UK and Ireland roadshow, March 2014.

What The Opportunities Overseas Expo – now in its 13th year – is returning to the UK and Ireland this March – this is your chance to meet skilled, move-ready Brit and Irish professionals eager for a new job and new life in Australia. Get your hard to fill vacancies in-front of a targeted audience, enjoy face to face time with plenty of suitable candidates and promote your company and opportunities to hundreds of people at once at a seminar.

Why The UK and Ireland have consistently proved themselves to be the home of in-demand skills. A highly educated population with desirable international work experience representing a wide variety of skills – including construction, healthcare, engineering and IT – the Brits and Irish are also renowned for being globally-mobile. Seeking better career opportunities, lifestyles and weather from home nations still in the grip of a recession, now’s the perfect time to find your new employees.

WHEN AND WHERE The roadshow will be heading back to our flagship location, London, as well as returning to Dublin and Manchester.

TESTIMONIALS I have been overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of candidates that I have met over these two expos. I have been beyond pleasantly surprised as I was initially a little bit concerned that the quality of IT candidates would not match the usual standard of IT specific trade show candidates that I am used to. My team and I have not been able to stop for lunch or coffee due to the sheer volume of candidates to our stand. The Working In staff have been incredible to work with and the show has been very efficient. We will be making a few significant hires from these expos and we will absolutely be coming back in the future. Very successful indeed.

Your efforts, in particular your focus and determination to address our needs as a client, have always been very professional and been consistent. As a result the benefits have been very positive for Komatsu. We look forward to our continued relationship with your organisation in the management of our growing overseas workforce.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we hired eight people from Manchester alone. I would recommend exhibiting with Working In as you get results. Sean Shepherd, Baulderstone
