What is nomination?

Nomination is the process of identifying an occupation to be filled by a skilled worker from outside Australia in an approved business. Nomination is required for both standard business sponsors and parties to a labour agreement.

The nomination process identifies:

  • the occupation is relevant to the position to be filled
  • the skills and experience required for the position
  • the market salary rate for the position and the salary rate to be paid to the prospective employee
  • the name of the prospective employee
  • the location where the employee will be working.
