Austrain Academy has links with many Australian organisations who require employees in their Food Service operations.
Subject to meeting DIAC Requirements, students may be eligible for The Temporary Business (Long Stay) Subclass 457 visa. This is an employer sponsored work visa designed to allow highly skilled foreign workers to work in Australia for up to 4 years.
In order for a business to sponsor foreign workers for a Subclass 457 visa, it must first be approved as a sponsor.
There are "benchmarks" required to be meet and maintained to ensure the guidelines of the 457 Visa Program are both met and maintained.
Austrain Academy can provide information to students regarding organisations that may be able to assist with this process.
