Myself & my family owe you & Monique a big thank you for getting us to Australia! We have now been here 3 months & loving it! It really is an awesome country. I have now been working as a GP in a health centre just north of Brisbane & really enjoy the job. A welcome change from my job in Glasgow. As you are aware Paul our journey to Oz was not easy & it took us over a year to get here. However your help, advice & support made it possible. I had many obstacles to overcome but you were always there with a email full of advice or a phone call to support me. Monique has also been amazing with all her support before we arrived & especially since we arrived in Australia. The road to Australia as a GP is not an easy one but it was made much more bearable with your support & advice. I honestly think without you we would have given up our dream. I now feel that you & Monique have become my friends & are much more than recruitment agents to me. Again a huge thank you again from myself & my family for helping us to get here & live our dream.
