I couldn't help noticing that in your original post (above), you state that you have only been in your chosen profession for 18 months.
I thought that you had to be in your chosen profession for 4 years? Could this be the real reason for the decline?
It may be worth contacting them for clarification before re-submitting.

Yes it is my understanding too that you have to be in that profession for at least 4 years or you do not meet the criteria. Best to check I think!

Just checked SA's website, for the 176 visa it states must have worked in nominated occupation for at least one year in the last four years and for the 475 at least one year in the last two years.
So I take it from this it does not have to be a full four years in your nominated occupation. Well I hope so, as this would knock me out as well!!
Your CV has to detail the last four years of your work history though.
So what i do only need the 1 yr experience?
It states on my cv that i had been at university for the 3 yrs (studying the stated profession) previous to starting work.
I am hopefully going on a 475 by the way, and believed it was just 1 yr out of the last 2
I am wondering if this is an excuse for something else

I put in a letter too, detailing why we had chosen SA (good future for kids etc) listed some websites I had looked at for housing etc, we are on a business visa, so it was easier, I included actual research we had done, available commercial property, competition strengths and weaknesses etc. Ways in which business might differ here and what we could offer. Just state in plain words that you are commited to moving to Adelaide and it is something you really want.
Don't know your job, but put a list of prospective employers, this demonstrates you know where they are etc.
is anyone good at proof reading etc? i have worded an email to them and i would just appreciate someone looking it over before i post it, incase it sounds bad and harms further chances
Yes I double checked and the 475 is one year out of the last two. I have just spent the last 4 hours doing my CV to send out to some employers I am not really sure what I am going to say, I am just going to pray for some responses (I know they will be negative) to fit this criteria and show I have approached them. I have asked my current employer for a reference so hopefully this will help and I am going to get one of my previous employer as I have only been in this job since May this year.
God, I thought the hard bit would be the actual visa application. I didn't count on the SA sponsorship being so tricky.
Here is the link to the one year in the last two bit:
