On-Hire Labour Agreement / 457 Visa
Australia continues to experience a high demand for skilled occupations across Allied Health, Nursing and skilled Engineering & Trades. ChoiceOne’s stance is to provide employment and training opportunities for Australian workers ahead of any overseas recruitment, however, at times this is difficult to achieve.
ChoiceOne is unwavering in its commitment to remain innovative and continually adapts to meet the needs of our clients in changing market environments. As a result, ChoiceOne actively pursued an expanded On-hire Labour Agreement with the Commonwealth Government to enable clients to sponsor skilled and/or specialised professionals to work in Australia.
As the employer, this creates new opportunities to source overseas trained candidates in the areas of genuine skills shortage occupations via ChoiceOne’s Labour Agreement.
Eligible candidates must be employed in the discipline of the visa that they have been approved by the Immigration Department. The visa allows the candidate to work in Australia in a full-time capacity for up to four years. During this time, candidates are able to apply for permanent residency, subject to the conditions associated with residency status.
Under the 457 Visa regulations, ChoiceOne remains responsible for these candidates for the duration of the 457 Visa term, including the return to their point of origin if for any reason the host client no longer requires these skills.

“ChoiceOne has been such a massive help with my move to Australia. I had been looking for a Radiography job with no luck for 2 months. As soon as I got in contact with Charlotte I had regular phone calls with updates about jobs availability. In no time at all I had the job I wanted plus extra locum work while I waited for my permanent job to start. Charlotte was so productive and helpful with any queries I had too. I would highly recommend ChoiceOne and thank them for all their help.”
Brett, thank you again so much for all your help and guidance during my recent job interviews. I am extremely grateful that you remained neutral and that you were so willing to give me unbiased advice during the process. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends and colleagues and I hope to be in a position one day to acquire staff via your firm.
I look forward to working with you in the future.
