Message from Noelene Merrey, Chief Executive Officer

Dear Readers

I am glad to see the end of financial year 2013/2014 and look forward to some new projects coming onstream in 2014/2015.

2013 to-date has been an exciting/challenging year for Perdaman Global Services and in our quest towards providing excellent customer service, we initiated a customer satisfaction survey. I want to express my sincere thanks to all respondents for taking the time to complete this survey, as we know how precious your time is. We take all your comments on board and will strive to improve on, and continue to deliver, excellent customer service at all times.

Among the main activities initiated by Perdaman Global Services is our participation at the Dublin Working Abroad Expo in Ireland which was a tremendous success with enormous interest and enquiries by potential migrants waiting to move and live in Australia.

During the last quarter, Australia’s migration programme for 2014 – 2015 was announced and the same level of 190,000 maintained for the last three years. There are still shortages in certain occupations and the program addresses this shortage with an allocation of 128,550 to the skilled migration stream for 2014-2015. The family stream which allows the reunion of family members remains at 60,885.

On another positive note, effective July 2014, chefs, bricklayers and tilers will now be added into Australia’s Skilled Occupation List paving an easier way forward for workers with qualifications, or having a minimum of five years work experience, to apply for permanent residency in Australia.

At Perdaman Global Services, we continue to embrace and acknowledge that effective communication is highly important in our business. Please continue to connect with us, and keep in touch on our activities via our social media platforms. We like to hear from you!

As an expanding and progressive organisation, together with our dedicated team at Perdaman Global Services, we are well-poised to meet the emerging needs of our existing and potential customers for the next financial year, and we are looking forward to a couple of large projects coming on stream.

On behalf of Perdaman Global Services, may I take this opportunity to wish you all the best as we begin another journey of success, changes and challenges in the fiscal calendar of 2014/2015.

Best Wishes!
