Genuine Position Statement

What is a Genuine Position Statement?

The crux of an Employer Sponsorship Application lies in pro-actively showing the genuine nature of the position (GOP), and its importance to the scope and profitability of your business.  A Genuine Position can be in the form of a Statement (Genuine Position Statement) or, more favoured by Worldly Migration, a Genuine Position Letter. This is a requirement for the subclass 482 visa, subclass 186 visa, subclass 494 Regional Sponsored, and subclass 400 visa. Addressing the genuineness of the position is the crux of the nomination stage, as it is the narrative of the nomination which is the most volatile of the employer sponsored visa stages. It is important to illustrate to the assessing Case Officer what the history and context of the role is, justification that the role hasn’t been created to achieve a visa outcome for the migrant, how the role relates to the scope of the business and it’s benefit, the migrants suitability for the role, how it relates to the ANZSCO Code for ABS standards, and other crucial elements.
