Mandatory points for a job at the appropriate skill level
Under the points-based immigration system, to get your Skilled Worker Visa, you must be awarded 70 points in total, 20 of which mandatory points for a job at the appropriate skill level.
There are two requirements which must be met for you to be awarded the points for a job at the appropriate skill level.
The first requirement is that you must be sponsored for a job listed as an eligible occupation.
The second requirement is that your sponsor must choose an appropriate occupation code.
However, no points will be awarded for a job at the appropriate skill level if you are not also being awarded the 20 mandatory points for sponsorship.
