What is your opinion/experience on the chance of someone being granted a 457 visa, when they have no tertiary qualifications? There are several of my family back in South Africa who are very interested in migrating, but I'm not sure what their chances would be. All of them have good careers and great experience, as follows:
Desperate candidate 1 - Female (31) over 10 years experience in the media industry as a manager of a department that monitors advertising expenditure on behalf of clients. Finished secondary schooling, but no tertiary.
Desperate candidate 2 - Male (35) over ten years experience as a manager of a dept in the superannuation industry. Is responsible for huge corporate super funds administration and oversees around 8 staff. Finished school, but no tertiary
Desperare candidate 3 - Male (34) over ten years experience in the crane and lifting industry. Has broad experience in the crane industry and was recently appointed a director in a medium sized crane business. He is responsible for servicing clients, bringing in new business, etc etc. Lots of responsibility. Did not finish high school, left early to get a job and tattoos, but has really blossomed in a working environment.
If we were to find employers who were interested in their CV's and experience (and everything else being equal) do you think they could be sponsored on 457's?
