The South Australian state nominated occupation lists are divided into two separate lists; the State Occupation List and the Supplementary Skilled List. The State Occupation List is a list of occupations considered to be in demand in South Australia. There are currently 171 occupations on the State Occupation List.
The Supplementary Skilled List replaces the former South Australian Graduate List. This list offers all the remaining occupations on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection’s Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL) that are not on the South Australian State Occupation List. There are 480 occupations on the Supplementary Skilled List.
These additional occupations will give an opportunity to more skilled workers who meet the requirements in one of the three categories below (many of whom are already employed in a skilled occupation in South Australia):
- International graduate of South Australia
- Worked in a skilled occupation in South Australia for the last 12 months
- Immediate family member permanently residing in South Australia for 12 months or more.
Applicants applying for Supplementary Skilled List occupations need to research employment opportunities and requirements in their occupation thoroughly as there may be limited openings or specific requirements that need to be met before a person can obtain work in their field in South Australia (such as further training, registration, licensing, residency or other requirements).
