Australia offers many opportunities for international candidates looking to relocate and work in the Digital, Marketing, Advertising and Media industries. Zinc aims to assist all international job hunters in finding suitable job opportunities in Brisbane and South East Queensland, but we can sometimes be restricted by an international’s work eligibility and encourage all candidates to confirm their rights to work in Australia before contacting us. Please see more information on immigration below.
Once you are eligible to commence working in Australia, here are a few tips:
- You will need to apply for a Tax File Number from the Australian Tax Office (ATO) prior to starting work in Australia.
- All Australian employers are required by law to contribute an amount equivalent to 9.5% of your wages to a superannuation fund of your choice. We advise when applying for jobs in Australia that you clarify whether the salary package advertised includes or excludes superannuation. For more information on superannuation in Australia see the Australian Tax Office – Superannuation
- Income tax works in a similar way to many countries and you can determine the different income tax rates by contacting the ATO . Each year it is an individual’s responsibility to lodge a personal tax return and this is not something that is done automatically by the ATO for you. The Australian financial year runs from the 1st July to the 30th June.
Eligibility to Work in Australia
For more information on your eligibility to work in Australia you can contact the Department of Immigration. Unfortunately Zinc is unable to offer formal immigration advice but you can contact a registered Migration Agent in Australia for a more personalised assessment.
