Reception/ Administrator, Wellington
A strong passion for sport led Brylea to represent Wellington in Touch Rugby and Netball. She is the first point of contact for our clients and very approachable. Brylea manages passports, appointments, client documents and keeps the team on track.
This is the belief that drives us;
"We are here for you."
This is what our boss said, over 35 years ago:
"Immigration is one of the most difficult interfaces between the individual and the State.
On one hand, are the individual and his or her family; pursuing the honorable objective of wanting to settle in New Zealand.
On the other, is an overstretched administration, trying to apply complex rules on a consistent basis, backed by the frightening power of the State.
This contest is fundamentally unfair. Even a strong applicant is disadvantaged and will often feel insecure until the final answer is given.
My clients know they are in good hands."
It's still the same today.
