Labour Market Testing and Gumtree
Sponsoring employers are aware of the need to prove that a vacancy cannot be filled from within the local market, prior to formalising an employment contract and submitting an application for a TSS visa.
Labour Market Testing usually means providing evidence of two forms of advertising over a 28 day period within the 4 months immediately prior to application.
The Department of Home Affairs is moving with the times, having recently confirmed that advertising on Gumtree will now be acceptable for its labour market testing purposes, as long as the vacancy is listed in its jobs section.
Other recruitment websites that are acceptable include SEEK, Indeed, Adzuna, JobActive, and LinkedIn (Recruitment platform).
