How to Find an Australian Worker

For your business to gain endorsement from the Goldfields DAR to employ overseas workers under the Goldfields DAMA, you must demonstrate that you have not been able to get suitably qualified and skilled Australian citizens or permanent residents to fill your vacant positions.
Local Recruitment Options
You must provide evidence of your local recruitment efforts over the last four months.

There are many ways you can do this, including:
  • contact a recruitment agency
  • advertise the vacancy in: 
    • newspapers
    • professional and trade publications
    • industry associations’ newsletters
  • advertise on a recruitment website like: 
  • work with Job Services Australia, who work with businesses to assess the types of workers required and attempt to match them with trained and work ready job seekers.
  • consider employing an apprentice - if you don’t have enough work for an ongoing or full-time apprenticeship position, group training organisations can organise to share an apprentice with another business, go to the Australian Apprenticeships website.
