business laptop.JPGThe State’s latest skilled migration pathways will breathe new life into regional South Australia by enabling employers to find the skilled workers they need.

Two Designated Area Migration Agreements (DAMAs) will deliver more flexibility for businesses to deal with immediate skills shortages whilst they train their local staff to grow their businesses.

The Regional DAMA will enable employers in industries such as agribusiness, food processing and hospitality and tourism to sponsor skilled workers for jobs they have been unable to fill.

Minister for Innovation and Skills, David Pisoni says the DAMAs are designed to address existing skills shortages in regional SA.

The program commences on 1 July 2019, with full details of the two DAMAs now available on the Immigration SA website.
