Working as a driver in Australia can be a great career opportunity for unskilled labor. Research shows that there is a shortage of skilled heavy truck drivers in Australia and there is a great demand for new truck drivers. That’s why the country is looking to bring hundreds of thousands of immigrants into the country through visa sponsorships.
