Reception/ Administrator, Auckland
Rachel has a customer service background and in her spare time is busy renovating a house, at speedway or with family and friends. Rachel makes our clients and visitors feel very welcome while managing our advisers diaries, couriers and documents.
This is the belief that drives us;
"We are here for you."
This is what our boss said, over 30 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.
