Engineers Australia Urges Action on Skilled Migration in Hotspots

Publish Date: 12/12/2023

Engineers Australia CEO Romilly Madew AO praises the government's efforts to streamline migration processes for highly skilled professionals and introduce a new visa for specialist skills.

Despite a skills shortfall, qualified migrant engineers often struggle to find relevant employment, with 47% actively seeking jobs.

Madew Urges Government to implement GET Program for Stronger Aussie Engineering Workforce.

Recommendation for Implementation:

  • Implement GET program in regional hotspots.
  • Fill job vacancies and contribute to building a resilient, diverse, and innovative engineering workforce.

Key Statistics:

  • Over 20% of Australia's qualified engineers not in the labour force.
  • Expected retirement of 68,133 engineers in the next 15 years.
  • Approximately 3,200 engineers leave the profession annually.
  • Majority of Australia's engineering workforce born overseas.
  • Australia competes with other countries for skilled migrant engineers.
