He has particular expertise in employer-sponsored visas (including occupational training), and in negotiating migration Labour Agreements which has included negotiations for the establishment of Australia’s first Enterprise Migration Agreement (EMA).

The Federal Government introduced EMAs in 2012 to assist the resources sector; EMAs help major projects to access labour from outside of Australia to cover skills vacancies that cannot be filled from within the domestic labour market. EMAs are negotiated with project owners and set the terms by which foreign workers will be engaged on a project.
