Prospective employer expression of interest

The Pacific Labour Scheme (PLS) helps meet employment demand in rural and regional Australia. It enables citizens of 9 Pacific island countries and Timor-Leste to take up low-skilled and semi-skilled work opportunities in rural and regional Australia for up to 3 years.

The Scheme 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 Scheme.

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 you to tell us why you would like to join the Scheme, and the benefits it would potentially deliver to your business and community.

This form should take you approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
