The Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS) helps meet employment demand in rural and regional Australia. It enables citizens of participating Pacific countries to take up low and semi-skilled work opportunities in rural and regional Australia for up to three years.
The PLS focuses on sectors with projected employment growth in Australia, is employer-sponsored, requires labour market testing to ensure Australians have priority for local jobs and contains protections to safeguard against worker exploitation.
To become an approved employer, you and your entity or business must satisfy a series of checks to ensure that you are reputable, financially sound and operationally able to fulfil the requirements of the PLS.
This short questionnaire will help the Pacific Labour Facility (PLF) determine whether your business fulfils the minimum requirements for lodging the application. This is also a chance for to tell us why you would like to join the PLS, and the benefits it would potentially deliver to your business and community.
Following the submission of this questionnaire you will be contacted by the PLF team within three business days. This form should only take you approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
