This ANZSCO description document has been created to assist applicants in nominating an occupation for an ICT skill assessment application. The document lists all the ANZSCO codes that the ACS assess and contains example ICT units and employment duties for each occupation.
The ACS are unable to advise applicants on which ANZSCO to nominate as this is something that must be determined by the applicant. It is highly recommended to research and evaluate the relevance of your individual qualifications and experience in relation to the ANZSCO code requirements before nominating an ANZSCO code using this document, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Skilled Occupations List (SOL).
The relevance of your experience and qualifications can only be determined at the time of formal assessment. In order for a qualification or employment period to be deemed closely related;
At least 65% of the ICT units in your qualification must be relevant to the nominated occupation
At least 65% of the duties and responsibilities listed in the employment reference letters must be relevant to the nominated occupation.
When the ANZSCO nominated results in an unsuitable outcome, if the assessor can see a clear alternative that will produce a suitable outcome, you may be sent an email suggesting an alternative ANZSCO. If you wish to accept the suggested code it will incur a $200 fee.
Once your application is finalised and you would like to be assessed under an alternative ANZSCO you can lodge a review application. A review will cost $395 and can be lodged within 60 days of receiving your result letter.
