The employers must show that they canโ€™t find a suitable Australian worker. For these visas, if an employer nominates an overseas worker, employer will need to test the local labour market.

Sponsors must provide ๐‹๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฆ๐š๐ซ๐ค๐ž๐ญ ๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐  (๐‹๐Œ๐“)* proof when requesting a labour agreement.

For most nominations, advertising must be done within the 4 months immediately before lodging a nomination application.

However, if the sponsor or an associated entity has made any Australian citizen or permanent resident workers redundant or retrenched them from positions (in the nominated occupation) within 4 months before lodging the nomination application, the advertising must have occurred since the date that the redundancies or retrenchments occurred.

Note: information about these redundancies or retrenchments must also be provided with the nomination.

In addition, the advertising of the nominated position must meet all of the requirements below:

  • the advertisement was in Australia, in English and included the following information:
    • the title, or a description, of the position.
      Note: multiple positions in one advertisement is acceptable
    • the skills or experience required for the position
    • the name of the approved sponsor or the name of the recruitment agency being used by the sponsor
    • the salary for the position โ€“ if the annual earnings for the position are lower than AUD96,400
      Note: it is acceptable to publish a salary range (for example, AUD80,000 to AUD90,000)
  • at least 2 advertisements were published in any of the below:
    • on a prominent or professional recruitment website with national reach that publishes advertisements for positions throughout Australia
      • industry specific recruitment websites relevant to the occupation that are in significant use by the industry are an acceptable method of LMT advertising
      • a general classifieds website or an advertisement solely through social media notification (such as Twitter or Instagram) are not acceptable methods. LinkedInโ€™s online recruitment platform is acceptable for LMT purposes. Job vacancies restricted to LinkedIn profile members only are not acceptable for LMT purposes
    • in national print media (that is, newspapers or magazines with national reach that are published at least monthly and marketed throughout Australia)
    • on national radio with national reach
    • on the businessโ€™ website if the sponsor is an accredited sponsor
  • advertisements, including on websites, are expected to have run for at least 4 weeks
  • applications or expressions of interest for the advertised position must have been accepted for at least 4 weeks

Note:

  • the nominated position may be advertised in the same medium (such as newspaper advertisements, on two separate occasions) or in any two different mediums simultaneously, or on two separate occasions
  • advertising may have been undertaken by a third party if authorised to do so by the sponsor (for example, an associated entity or a contracted party, such as a recruitment agency) โ€“ there is no requirement that the sponsor placed the advertisement themselves

Requirements for nominations lodged on or after 1 October 2020

In September 2020, the Australian Government introduced new labour market testing measures for employer sponsored applications. 

In addition to the 2 advertisements mentioned above:

  • the nominated position must be advertised on the Governmentโ€™s jobactive website
  • the jobactive advertisement must have included all of the information required to be included in the other 2 advertisements mentioned above
  • jobactive advertisements are expected to have run for at least 4 weeks
  • applications or expressions of interest for the advertised position must have been accepted for at least 4 weeks

Note: advertising may have been undertaken by a third party if authorised to do so by the sponsor (for example, an associated entity or a contracted party, such as a recruitment agency) โ€“ there is no requirement that the sponsor placed the advertisement themselves

Evidence of a total of 3 advertisements, including an advertisement published on the Governmentโ€™s jobactive website, must be provided at the time the nomination is lodged.
