I am in the early stages of applying for a state sponsored 475 visa as an intelligence officer (ASCO Code 2299-19). I am interested to hear from anyone who has already been successful in obtaining their visa as an intelligence officer and are now living in South Australia. In particular I am interested in hearing how you have found the job market and employment opportunities in this line of work as I understand that to gain employment with government departments you nearly always need to be a citizen. For those of you who have been successful an idea of potential salaries would be most helpful and hopefully encouraging.
What opportunities exist in other business sectors? How have any perspective employers viewed migrant intelligence officers etc. Any feedback, lesson learnt and obvious good news stories most welcome.
