Default Does the type of job offer you have matter?

Hi there,

I have a question for all those in the know.

My husband is planning on contacting specialist recruitment agencies (in overseas engineering) in Nov/Dec in the hope of setting interviews up in March 08 (for him to actually attend face to face).

Now, we cannot claim points under the LTSSL despite his job being on the list - he doesn't have the necessary accredited degree but he does have 20 years exp.

So how does this work if he gets a job offer? Will the job (e.g. Senior Design Engineer) be 'allowed' under the Skilled Migrant category? The more I read up on category options when you have a job offer is mighty confusing. My worry is even if he gets a job offer, will this be enough to gain PR?

I hope this all makes sense and I'd appreciate any of your thoughts/answers!

mmm if you can't go on skilled migrant you can always work to residence.

Hi,
Im a bit confused, does your husband have a degree of any sort as i think he would get points for that. He cant claim points for being on the skills shortage list if he doesnt have the recognised qualifications to go with it. You could see what he would need to do to get to that skill level. Once he has a job offer that will give him plenty of points the other points can be gained from work experience. Hope this helps,
Carole

I suppose we could go work to residence but that seems a really long winded process and we would have to pay for the kids schooling.

His job is on the LTSSL but his qualification for that job isn't. The list requires an accredited degree if we wanted to claim points for qualifications or work experience. Alas we can't.

However, his job offer (-to be, ever the optimist!) would be on the list. If I type that into the quick check, we get loads of points but are we allowed to do this?

If you are on some sort of work permit you wouldn't have to pay any more than PR holders and New Zealand citizens pay for primary and secondary school. Tertiary studies are a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

Hi,
You don't pay for schooling other than the normal donation which can be around $180.
You cant use the LTSSL if your husband does'nt have the recognised qualifications. How does he get them accredited?
With a job offer and enough points residency is no problem.
You can claim points for any work experience now i think, but if his job is in one of the cluster groups or the other things he can claim points so long as the work experience is in the specified field.

Thanks for all your help....thats very interesting about the schooling fee's, I was always led to believe if you didn't have PR you had to pay for everything. Well, if thats the case that give's us a B plan
