Australia Needs More IT Workers

Post date: Jul 12, 2012 2:17:42 AM

Information and communication technology are currently experiencing a growing skills gap (IT), a report has revealed, with more workers coming from overseas to help fill available positions.

Migration consultants may deal with a growing number of workers from this industry, as workplaces do what they can to attract the necessary talent.

One company to have recently been granted an On-Hire Labour Agreement is Entity Solutions, which operates within the contractor management services industry.

So far, it is one of the very few professional engagement services companies to have gained government approval to act as an official sponsor for overseas talent.

Through the scheme, Entity Solutions is able to nominate several placements within the telecommunications, finance, ICT, management and engineering sectors.

Chief executive officer Matthew Franceschini said that the agreement enables the company to meet the demands of its customers, while also providing support to Australian businesses.

He acknowledged that this is especially important at a time when Australia faces the challenges of meeting demand in boom sectors such as resources, as well as telecommunications projects.
