Migrants are flocking to Australia to pursue careers in the booming gas industry. In the face of a looming skills shortage Queensland will need to employ tens of thousands of new workers to sustain the rapidly growing gas industry.

According to migration experts The Emigration Group, it is likely skilled British workers will provide a large bulk of the workforce needed. Paul Arthur, Director of The Emigration Group said: "Queensland is predicting they will employ up to 17 000 workers in the gas sector by 2024. This is more than double what they originally predicted, and it is likely they will need to look to migration to fill skill shortages."

The booming gas sector has already seen hundreds of British workers in the construction sector migrating down under to fill these skills shortages.

The new jobs being created in Queensland's gas sector will include engineers, rig managers and specialist trainers and assessors who will be essential to roles in the operation and maintenance of the gas fields.

For skilled British workers looking to emigrate down under this creates a great opportunity to find work and qualify for a visa to live and work in Australia. If you are interested in migrating to Australia, contact No Borders for more information.
