Overseas Candidates:

Unfortunately we do currently receive a lot of contact from candidates with no "local" experience asking us to interview and promote them to our network.  The challenge is that our clients come to us with the specific requirement that all candidates are very familiar with AS/NZ codes so, at this stage, we may not be able to respond personally to people, however talented or motivated.  I am sure if you saw our inbox, you would understand.
