The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT), in collaboration with Business and Skilled Migration Queensland, is currently developing the Queensland Skilled Occupation Lists (QSOLs) for 2018–19.

Approved Providers have been identified as a key stakeholder that may use skilled migrants in the Queensland labour market.

You are invited to complete a short survey by Thursday 24 May 2018.

The responses you provide will be used by the Queensland Government to inform the development of the QSOLs. The QSOLs list skilled occupations deemed to be in demand in Queensland that are not being met by the domestic labour supply and where skilled migrants may be required to meet this shortage. Migrants who have an occupation on the QSOLs may apply for State Government nomination for the 190 and 489 subclass skilled visas. These visas allow skilled migrants to come and work in Queensland in the nominated occupation and are one mechanism used to address skilled labour shortages in the state.

Skilled occupations are those that require either:

  • Bachelor degree or higher
  • Australian Qualifications Framework diploma
  • Australian Qualifications Framework Certificate IV.

Through the survey, DESBT will collect your name, your organisation and your contact details in the event your response needs to be clarified. DESBT will not disclose your personal information to a third party without your consent or as required by law. By completing this survey, you agree to your IP address and responses being collected and transferred out of Australia to the secured SurveyMonkey server in the United States of America.

Personal information collected by DESBT will be handled in accordance with the Information Privacy Act 2009.
