What kinds of jobs require a valid Right to Work in Australia?

It is a legal requirement for all Australian employers to ensure any individual they employ has the right to work in Australia. There are various Right to Work conditions, depending on whether you’re an Australian citizen, or what type of working visa you hold. Every employer will have their own preference of what they will accept.

For job seekers who do not currently have Australian working rights, you may be interested in jobs on SEEK with 'sponsorship available'.
