State Lists

Hi to all

Six of the expected new state lists are now out, and there have been some changes to them- mostly positive.
Email us your cv, or contact us on our office numbers and speak to Steve or Andy if your are a potential new client, or speak to our valued team if you are a current client, and find out if the lists affect you.
Please be aware, and I know I keep harping on this, preparing a case right through to be able to submit to Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) takes a positive skills assessment, a positive english result, and a positive state nomination. On average, this take around six months, so if you are going to Australia, you need to start NOW.

Technical Nightmare

Hi to all,

Our sincerest apologies to those of you who have been attempting to log onto our website over the past week or so, we have obviously had a major technical glitch, which we have thankfully fixed.

Just a quick update, we are starting to run seminars again Nationally. In fact, the first one is this Saturday, the 24th of September from 8.30am-9.30am at the Protea Edward Hotel in Durban. You can book by completing the booking form on the previous entry.

We are also doing Pietermaritzburg on Monday the 26th at 6.30pm-7.30pm at the Imperial Hotel. Again, please book online, or contact Storm on 032 586 0306.

We will be announcing tomorrow, an ongoing partnership with an Australian recruitment company, dedicated to assisting South African’s with gaining Visa’s, both work and permanent to Australia. We will post this on our site, and once again, please feel free to contact us for further information.

I point out, and will continue to point out, that those families and individuals, wishing to emigrate, especially to Australia and New Zealand, should be preparing applications soonest, and submitting them to the relevant authorities, because once applications are received for residency, if the rules change at all, the application will not be affected, as it has already been submitted.

New Zealand slightly changed their rules in July, and Australia are constantly doing so, especially next year.

Contact us for further information!

Signing off today, you will be pleased to see that I am wearing my Boks shirt, even though I am an avid New Zealand supporter, being born and bred in ‘Kiwiland’.

 

Increase in South African emigration

Hi all

Sorry about my lack of blogging – been incredibly busy travelling the country, assisting South Africans with their plans to emigrate.

I’ve lived in South Africa for 20 years (although I’ll always support the All Blacks…good luck in the Cup) but what I’m really noticing is the high unemployment in SA at the moment is making people who usually wouldn’t consider migration, think for the first time about opportunities in other countries.

As previously said, New Zealand and Australia especially, are actively seeking qualified individuals, mostly with the right to work (in other words, the correct visa), generally from the UK. We have highly skilled individuals in South Africa that if qualified, can generally quite easily find work in these countries.

Our political uncertainty is also a major reason for families to consider migration. With offices in both Johannesburg and Durban, and personal consultations performed throughout the country, I feel my organisation is well  – positioned to be able to assist you with this often complicated and costly procedure.

Please contact me personally or fill in the very basic online assessment and I will contact you.

Salaries booming across Australia – your skills are needed!

As reported in a UK magazine this week, new projects across Australia are driving salaries up and there are now thousands of opportunities for migrants. The Western Australian government and employers are looking for skilled migrants in the fields of Accounting, Engineering, Construction, most Trades etc.

They are currently actively seeking UK citizens but as a South African based migration agency, we feel we have the necessary client base and potential client base to be able to assist South Africans who are considering migration to obtain either a work visa or permanent residency into Australia.

For more information, contact us for a one -on – one consultation in either our offices in Johannesburg or Durban, or complete your details on our ‘Contact Us’ page and one of our consultants will get in touch with you.

Help New Zealand rebuild Christchurch

Being a New Zealander I was, as with the rest of the world, devastated at Christchurch’s earthquake. As workers clean up the mess, starting 2012 (which is just around the corner), Christchurch will need between 4000-8000 jobs filled.

Construction workers, demolition specialists, welders, plumbers, carpenters, builders and others are some of the types of workers required for the rebuilding process. In fact at the moment, one recruitment agency is actively seeking to recruit over 40 civil engineers. We are in a position in South Africa, with the skills that we have here, to help New Zealand rebuild this beautiful city.

Australia & New Zealand: actively seeking professionals from offshore to fill much needed positions in both countries

Unlike the rest of the world which seems to be bordering on the brink of another recession, these two Down Under countries are seemingly being smart in the way that they attract offshore skills.

Accountants are in huge demand in Australia. All trades, engineers and technicians are in the top ten hardest jobs to fill in Australia and New Zealand, and salaries are booming in these fields (engineers are always in big demand). In some instances, university graduates are being offered up to AUD$80,000 annually for their first job, while those with a few years experience can earn annual salaries of AUD$100,000 or more.
