Default IT, Age, Migration Question / Advice

Hi All,

I am looking for some help regarding best path or even if I should bother trying for migration to Australia. I am going to outline my details and hopefully somebody can offer advice.
I am currently 44, 45 in August.
I have British and Irish Passports.
I have a degree in Science, Software Development.
I have 20 years working in IT of which the last 13 are in a Large American Multinational Pharmaceutical Company, 100K plus employees. My current title is Senior Manager Business Technology. Within these 20 years I have done everything in IT from Software Development System Analysist, Network Analyst, Automation. Currently I look after Large Manufacturing Systems.
I have no dependents and am single.
I am financially independent.
I just want the option of an exit strategy from my current employment - Some sunshine would be good !
I have a feeling my age is against me. There is no opportunity to move via my employer - interesting point but a lot of the large Pharma don't have major operations in the ANZP regions.
Should I engage a Migration agent ?

Thanks so much.

I would be so grateful if anybody here could give me a steer.

You are fast running out of time for a skilled visa, which has a hard age cut-off of 45, particularly in the current environment where few offshore applications are being considered and states are not nominating offshore applicants. There is an outside chance things may ease off in the latter part of the year, but you will need to have all the prep work done (skills assessments, English tests etc) and it will still be a long shot in my view. But, if you don't try, you won't know!
