    Employment information

    Candidates must have employment and qualifications that do not better fit under any other ANZSCO code to be nominated under the “not elsewhere classified” (NEC) code.

    Financial dealers differ from other jobs in ANZSCO, such as finance broker, stockbroking dealer, futures Trader, and financial market dealer.

    An equity analyst researches and evaluates businesses to determine their total financial value. By carefully examining financial statements and speaking with business executives and other experts in the field, analysts may determine the economic worth of a company. They are divided into two groups: sell-side and buy-side analysts.

    Some employers hire equity analysts for Securities, banks, mutual funds, hedge funds, pension funds, and insurance companies. Since analysts examine a company’s value, they can decide whether or not to classify it as a risky investment.

    Equities analysts consider a company’s future value in addition to its current financial worth. Financial statements, sales, cost, and tax data may be used to make decisions. Analysts may also speak with management to better understand the entire financial situation.

    Supporting material for assessment

    When applying for a skills assessment, please provide enough documentation to back up your employment claims, qualifications, and identity proof. Following VETASSESS documentation standards, applicants nominating this occupation must submit supporting paperwork (see List of Required Documents).

    The reasoning behind selecting a “nec” category should be stated in a cover letter that you submit.

    The VETASSESS Skills Assessment for migration purposes differs from an assessment for licensing or registration purposes; however, if you have any relevant licenses, including foreign ones, you are encouraged to submit copies of these.

    You should also list any relevant courses you’ve done for professional development or training. The attached Curriculum Vitae/Resume may have more information about these.

    Not Elsewhere Classified (NEC)

    A few VETASSESS-assessed jobs are marked as “nec,” or “not elsewhere classified.” Ensure that your work history and credentials are highly relevant to one of the occupation titles included in the ANZSCO description for the specific occupation if you nominate someone in one of these roles. If further specific profession titles are relevant to the “nec” codes and unavailable elsewhere in ANZSCO, they will be considered individually. Your occupation would typically be designated as non-classified but specialized or connected to its ANZSCO Unit Group description to be evaluated against a “nec” code.

    It is unacceptable for your job in these selected occupations to better fit another ANZSCO code (whether or not VETASSESS has assessed it). You should analyze the sub-major group description and decide whether your talents best fit this category before nominating a “nec” occupation.

    To determine whether an employment can be considered highly relevant to the classification, VETASSESS performs a case-by-case evaluation. Regardless of whether the occupation is open for immigration, the duration of your employment cannot be appropriately evaluated against a “nec” classification if it is substantially relevant to another ANZSCO occupation.

    A cover letter supporting your decision to use a “nec” category should be included.
