Welcome to Skill Shortage Solutions


Cost effective – recruitment solutions

Skill Shortage Solutions has over 15 years’ experience in recruiting skilled professionals from overseas and from within Australia.

Assisting Australian employers in finding skilled, hard working trades people is our core business.

We combine both local and international recruitment to ensure our clients have instant and ongoing access to skilled professionals. Many of our candidates are skilled workers from overseas that have recently migrated to Australia as permanent residents or working holiday makers and are keen to find long term employment in Australia. However quite often we recruit skilled professionals that are Australian citizens also looking for long term employment.

Skills recognition and licensing

For many trade occupations the first step to securing employment and or a work visa in Australia is getting your skills Australian recognized, therefore Skill Shortage Solutions has a dedicated skills recognition department to assist trades persons from from overseas to meet their Australian skills recognition and licensing requirements.

We have assisted thousands of overseas trained trades people to gain Australian qualifications and licensing over the last 15 years and we have become the market leader in the Australian trade skills recognition arena.

Temporary and permanent Australian visa applications

Our migration agents have a combined 35 years’ experience in the migration field and are fully registered agents. They have experience with almost every visa classification in Australia and can attend to the migration/visa needs of Australian employers or individual migrants from any country in the world.

“We are not the best just because our clients say we are, but because I will not accept anything less”.

I would recommend skill shortage to anyone, I have had a lot of employers over the years and found doing my skills recognition for my visa almost impossible, The skill shortage team knew exactly what to do and I am now a permanent resident. Thank you.

My employer would not sponsor me unless I had my electrical license and I was running out of time on my visa, my friend recommend I called skills shortage solutions. Jason & Michael completed my trade recognition both on time and as per cost agreed. I now have an NT Electrical license and a sponsorship employer.

Just a quick mail to say thanks for your help in obtaining my trade recognition and that I would highly recommend your services to anyone moving to Australia, your service made life a whole lot easier for me in getting my A-Grade license.
