Experience letter for ACS skill assessment

Recommended Posts

The employment reference letter provided by my employer does not state that I am a full-time employee and I work for 40 hrs every week. Will it be accepted by ACS?

Per ACS checklist:

Employment references must contain:

1. Start & Finish Dates of Employment - if currently employed, your "finish" date can be written as the "To Date", but the job reference must have the date when it was written or it will be assessed as not suitable.

2. Description of Duties Performed - required to determine the relevance to the nominated occupation

3. Hours worked - Full time or Part time including number of hours worked per week

4. Country where Employment was Completed - if you have worked with the same company in different countries, the job reference must have the dates and locations clearly specified.

5. Company Letterhead and signed by the author (author’s name, position title & contact details should be stated)

To answer your question, the employment reference letter MUST contain:

  • The word "full-time" (no numerical/number of hours worked per week required) OR
  • The word "part-time" with the actual number of hours worked per week

Therefore, not having such information increases the risk of getting that employment not acknowledged by ACS.

As a Side Note

I called ACS yesterday regarding the clarification of the sentence: "Hours worked - Full time or Part time and actual hours worked per week", which is straight out of December 2019 version of SkillsAssessmentGuidelinesforApplicants.pdf.

Now, that sentence is not super clear; it can be misinterpreted as the reference letter needing:

  • (Full time or Part time) and (actual hours worked per week)
    • The word "full-time" with number of hours worked per week.
    • The word "part-time" with number of hours worked per week.

However, it should be interpreted as:

  • (Full time) or (Part time and actual hours worked per week)
    • The word "full-time".
    • The word "part-time" with number of hours worked per week.
