What our people say

Hobart Waterfront

For people with recognised skills seeking to work in Tasmania we can provide permanent sponsorship under the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme or temporary sponsorship under the Temporary Business Long Stay Visa.


Employer - Rachel Boughton, Nurse Unit Manager

“Sometimes when we advertise a vacancy it is hard to find experienced specialist nurses within Australia.

Jaya is one of our many success stories. Jaya commenced as a Registered Nurse under a sponsored 457 visa and then decided to stay, subsequently becoming a permanent resident. Jaya has now moved into a new role as a Clinical Nurse.

Nurses coming from overseas who want to work in Australia, in my experience work really hard. They are very dedicated and loyal employees, they make a great addition to our team.

It is great to have a diverse range of nurses working in the unit, not only does it offer us a chance to learn something, it also allows us to reflect more and more on the Tasmania community at large

I would recommend to anyone finding it difficult to access the right skill set in the local employment market to look overseas for skilled workers to fill their vacancies.”

Employee - Jaya Cherian

“I completed my nurse training in India and I have worked around the world including Ireland. I came to Tasmania as a Registered Nurse on a 457 visa. I liked working with the DHHS so much that we decided to stay in Tasmania. I became a permanent resident in September 2010 and found the process to be very easy with the help of my employer.

I am currently acting in the position of Clinical Nurse. My family is settled, Tasmania is a great place to live and raise my family.”
