Australia has long suffered from a real shortage of qualified automotive tradesmen and we’ve been in the business of filling these gaps for the past 10 years. During this time we’ve recruited automotive professionals from all over the world but are particularly interested in qualified mechanics from Sri Lanka – this is mainly due to the automotive education and skill sets brought to the country by past migrants.

Watch the video below from Senior Consultant Nat Richards who explains things a bit more…


Techs On The Move is a Sydney-based business dedicated to helping skilled automotive tradespeople from overseas to find jobs in Australia. We are also registered migration agents, so we can also arrange the best visa to suit these tradespeople along the way. We have been doing this for over 10 years, and have successfully assisted many Sri Lankans to change their lives and settle in our fantastic country.

We are not normal recruiters though, waiting for a job opportunity to be advertised and hoping to fill it as quickly as possible. Instead, we help interested people with the right skills to first understand what coming to Australia will be like for them, and then we go out and find a job to suit. This means that qualified mechanics (and their families) can get all the answers they need to decide if Australia might work for them before committing to finding the right route into the country.

There are no fees or obligations to register your interest with us, or to get into some video consultation where all your questions will be answered. Only once you understand a plan that can work for you, and how it might be achieved, will you be charged a one-off fee to start the job seeking process – AUD $350. There are no hidden costs, and we do not charge our candidates any job placement or recruitment fees. Depending on their circumstances, our candidates are sometimes required to fund some of the visa application process themselves, but we do not aim to profit from the technicians we assist once the job seeking process has commenced.
