RDA Far West (RDA FW) is required to provide an assessment for the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme (RSMS 1404) visa as a Regional Certifying Body (RCB). This visa enables skilled migrants to work for a regional employer for a minimum of 2 years and enjoy the lifestyle of regional Australia.
The programme aims to attract young, skilled, English speaking migrants to areas of Australia where they are most needed. Generally, skilled migrants are under 45 years of age, have competent English, at least diploma/trade level qualifications or above. The nominated position must be an ANZSCO skill level 1-3 occupation and have relevant work experience.
Please go to the Department of Home Affairs website link for more details:
