ANZSCO (Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations) is the classification of all the jobs available in Australia and New Zealand. Every occupation has an ANZSCO code in Australia and New Zealand. An ANZSCO code is a six digit code of occupations categorized on the basis of skills. A CDR applicant must check the ANZSCO code of his/her job before submitting the report. Your job’s ANZSCO code can be used to nominate you for the required visa.
It is required to fill the “Occupational Category” field in your Workplace Profile. You must fill it with the assigned ANZSCO group code of your occupational category. To find out your ANZSCO code, you will have to conduct an ANZSCO code search which is available below for your convenience.
Here are some of the guidelines in assigning ANZSCO codes to an employee:
- Use the roles and responsibilities of the employee as the base. It all boils down to which major group’s function he/she is carrying out instead of job titles. Then, it makes it easier to quantify and compare the data.
- If the employee holds more than one role, use the main role that he/she undertakes.
- If the employee’s job responsibilities have changed, use the one that he/she has at the date of filling the paperwork.
