About Me

I live in Cape Town, South Africa. My brother is an Australian Citizen and lives in Newcastle. I'm a Java programmer and would like to migrate to Australia, preferably Newcastle.


Do I have an Australian Visa or am I already living in Australia?

No

Have I applied for an Australian visa or residency?

No

Do I require sponsorship?

Yes

What is my biggest challenge with finding employment in Australia?

My lack of formal qualifications, although I do now have the 8 years of experience to apply for an ACS RPL skills assessment. I find the process quite daunting though.

Cut and paste your resume below for assessment and consideration for Australian employment. We recommend removing your contact details and the contact details of your referees if you wish to protect yours and your referees' privacy.

Still to provide.
