Job market outlook 2021

Occupation ceiling

An ‘occupation ceiling’ means a limit on the total number of Expression of Interests (EOIs) that can be selected for skilled migration from any particular occupation group.

Once the occupation limit is reached for any specific occupation, no further invitations will be received for the same for that program year.

In such a scenario of the occupation ceiling being reached, invitations will then be alternatively issued to those interested in migrating to Australia from other occupations groups even if they have a low ranking on the score calculator.

The occupation ceiling is introduced to ensure that a limited number of occupations do not make up the biggest percentage of the skilled migration program. The ceiling ensures that more invites are not issued to these professionals once the limit is reached and professionals from lower ranking occupations in the list also get a chance to work in Australia.

Even though the number of job openings is lesser compared to 2019 due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, still there are considerable number of jobs available for those with the required qualifications.
