Has anyone used the recruitment service available on the Live the Dream website to help find a sponsoring employer in Australia?

The recruiting company is called Futurenet and they manage the MigrationWatch e-newsletter from what i understand.

Gday

 

Live the Dream is run by:

 

Registrant:

Futurenet Publishing

70 Briar Road

Bexley, Kent DA5 2HW

UK

 

The job search service is linked to RMA Serge Tonin, who was earlier linked to Southern Cross recruitment I think. This is the third business name I have come across.

 

Recruitment agents and online portals handle about 25% of all vacancies, so it might be a good idea to spend 75% of your search effort using other methods.

Sounds like a good idea.

 

Care to suggest the best means of me spending the additional 75% of my time finding a suitable job?

Using personal networks and making direct approach to employers.

Looking for employment in Australia falls into 3 categories

1) send out resumes to potential employers. there are plenty of job sites such as SEEK. Just type into Google your skill and the word Australia. You will probably find many jobs that you would be able to fill.

2) Fly to Australia and search out employers. Being able to shake hands with a potential employee is a benefit to the employer. Obviously you may be contravening your visa if you actually demonstrate your skill.

3) Use a specialist company such as a migration management service of which there are a few in Australia but not too many with offices in the UK.

Option 1 is the cheapest option but there are problems getting a positive result or even reply

Option 2 is more expensive possible costing £2/3,000 for a trip with no guarantee of a job.

Option 3 will cost about the same as option 2, but with specialists managing your job search and associated documentation there is a better chance of getting a job offer and support throughout the move.

 

Live the Dream Australia is a UK based migration management service with registered migration agents in the UK and Australia processing visa's.

Mr Mooney, I believe you have a business association and financial relationship involved with these entities? Please correct me if I am wrong or if I have the wrong "Mooney".

Hi Jamie,

Yes I am a director of Futurenet Publishing Ltd who own live the dream. I do not usually respond to forum issues unless I can add value. As there was a request for information I added to the discussion. I hope my response was accepted in the manner which it was offered. My role is to manage the relocation and recruitment aspects of our migration management business.

Best wishes

Hi Tony

 

No offence or scurrilous inferences were intended. Are you also the proprietor at Bridges Relocation? Would that not have been something to put in your ID or signature? TonyMooney.biz has been closed as a website?

 

Last question, for clarification for forum members please, about the migration agents that work with Live The Dream, Serge Tonin is listed on your website as the agent who does "Certification of all documents by a Registered Migration Agent".

 

Does that mean Serge and his business Australia Visa Advisors Pty Ltd are responsible for the client and their case, or does LTD always retain this obligation? I mean, is the contractual obligation for service delivery and the duty of care for the client clear in your service contracts?

 

Should Serge's MARA listing then list your office as one of his places of business?

Hi Tony, it sounds interesting.:cool:

 

Migrating appears to be a very expensive business, especially looking at the amount of money to pay upfront and have available to settle down. I am waiting for the new occupation list and points system to see which will be the most suitable and cost effective way to migrate to Australia as a family.

 

While waiting I am exploring ways to migrate downunder other than 175/176 visa. Employer's sponsorship seems to be the most cost effective one I have been considering so far, and could be a pathway to permanent recidency.

 

Provided that the end result (sponsorship) is not guaranteed, would be £2/3,000 a good estimate of the cost of company's services?

If not, what the final cost would be based on?

 

Many thanks

Simone

Hi Jamie, Sorry for the delay but I have been flat out fielding enquiries and placing clients into jobs since the recent Australian expos in London Birmingham and Glasgow. We are also assisting clients who may no longer be able to achieve the points required to get a visa under the proposed changes come July 2011.

 

As you are aware I was the proprietor of Bridges Relocation from March 2006. I am delighted to announce that Bridges Relocation has been purchased by Futurenet Publishing Ltd, a marketing company with special interest in Australia. Perhaps you would enjoy visiting www.livethedreamaustralia.com which is the virtual exhibition offering information and services on most aspects of the move to Australia.

 

Live the Dream is a 100% owned company by Futurenet Publishing Ltd. As a migration management company we assist applicants in every facet of moving to Australia. As part of our framework we have a number of registered migration agents we work with and 100% record of successful visa approvals. As an organisation we would normally not recommend that somebody just arrives in Australia without seeking professional assistance or a firm guarantee from a potential employer they are prepared to sponsor an overseas applicant.

 

Your comment saying you believe someone could just access jobs off a website tends to be wasteful as the majority of posted jobs don't include sponsorship opportunities. Do you as an organisation guarantee placement of individuals you sign up as clients? As an organisation we have 1000's of enquiries from potential migrants each month and we would be delighted to pass these on to you if you have genuine vacancies available.

 

Best Wishes

Director of Recruitment & Relocation, Futurenet Publishing Ltd

Hi Simone,

I don't come onto this forum that often, so I did not see this posting when made. I am not sure quite what you are asking in your post but If you are asking can I justify the fees charged by live the dream, here is my reply.

 

We are a migration management company. We find jobs, process the visa (using registered migration agents) and manage all aspects of the move to Australia. Even when you arrive in Australia we are able to assist you. I think that's worth our fee.

 

We have live jobs waiting to be filled. If you have a skill on the 457 list we will talk to you.

 

Best wishes
