SEEK is aware of the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs’ Labour Market Testing (LMT) requirements for certain Visa types, and the obligation to provide evidence of attempts to recruit an Australian worker when trying to fill these positions.
SEEK has recently sought guidance from migration agents and lawyers in this area, which we’ll explain below. However, this information should not be relied upon as legal advice and we encourage you to get independent advice to suit your circumstances.
We have recently updated our Advertiser Centre to include all information that is required for LMT.
There is no requirement for you to obtain additional evidence from SEEK to support these applications.
