The "Talent Attraction Taskforce" is taking off!
The Federal Government has launched a global recruitment drive to entice foreign
companies and entrepreneurs to relocate to Australia with a focus on advanced
manufacturing, FinTech, and health sectors, more specifically from the US, UK, Hong Kong,
The recently announced Global Business and Talent Attraction Taskforce has been designed
to offer a tailored support process and simplify the path to achieving permanent residency.
Companies and individuals who qualify will have access to:
Streamlined pathways to permanent residency.
Bespoke advice on how and where to relocate.
Industry-specific contacts and support to help find the right location and networks.
End-to-end service with a single point of contact.
Sitting within the Home Affairs department and running in conjunction with the Global
Talent Independent Program the task force is focused on luring the best and brightest global
innovators, with a predilection toward companies demonstrating an investment capacity of
more than $250 million, scope to fill local skill and supply chain gaps, and the ability to
create more than 250 new jobs.
As a key facet of the local COVID-19 economic recovery plan Acting Immigration Minister,
Alan Tudge, considers Australia to have an advantage over countries like the US
which banned immigration from visa holders back in June.
“Australia has always been an attractive destination for talent and investment, but given our
relative success economically, from a health perspective, and socially, we will be even more
attractive,” Tudge said.
“We want to capitalise on this and be very focussed on attracting key businesses and global
super talent to Australia.”
