EMPLOYERS – Employing Overseas Workers in Far North Queensland | All Your Questions Answered

Event by Cairns Chamber of Commerce.

 

Have all your questions answered about the various options and initiatives for employing workers in Far North Queensland, where positions cannot be filled by Australian workers. Experts from the Federal and State Governments as well as the Cairns Chamber of Commerce will demystify your options. This is a unique opportunity to have all your questions on these topics answered in a single session.

 

Geoff Heath from the Cairns Chamber will present and take questions on the many enhancements just approved to the Far North Queensland Designated Area Migration Agreement (FNQ DAMA), and how it is more accessible and relevant in addressing our region’s unique skills shortage challenges.

 

Melissa Lackmann, from the Department of Home Affairs’ Business, Industry and Regional Outreach team, and also Marney Richardson from the state government’s Business Skills Migration Queensland (BSMQ) team, will update you on all your current visa options and initiatives for employing workers in regional Australia during the economic recovery of COVID-19, where positions cannot be filled by Australian workers.

 

They will also give an overview of the Queensland Government’s new small business owners’ pathway for migrants purchasing a business as an alternative to working for an employer.
