The Pilbara region has reached a significant milestone with the endorsement of 100 applications under the Pilbara Designated Area Migration Agreement (DAMA). This achievement marks a pivotal moment in addressing critical skill shortages and supporting the region's economic growth.


The Pilbara DAMA, established to attract skilled workers to the region, has facilitated the endorsement of diverse applications across various sectors. The successful endorsement of these applications underscores the commitment to enhancing the local workforce and ensuring the Pilbara’s continued prosperity.


"We are thrilled to announce the endorsement of 100 applications under the Pilbara DAMA," said RDA Pilbara CEO, Tony Simpson. "This milestone demonstrates our dedication to supporting local businesses and addressing skill shortages in the region. We look forward to welcoming these skilled workers and witnessing their positive impact on our community."


The Pilbara DAMA provides a tailored pathway for employers to sponsor skilled and semi-skilled overseas workers for positions they are unable to fill locally. This initiative not only addresses immediate skill gaps but also contributes to the long-term development of the region's workforce.
