Hosting a Skilled Migrant Intern


For a period of six weeks, the team at Alpha hosted an intern via Victoria University’s Skilled Migrant Programme (SMP). We had successfully matched the team with Sherine Neinaa, who had joined them in the capacity of Team Administrator.

Originally from Egypt, Sherine joined the team with a background in education and administration.

This week I’m going to do a wee wrap up of the Budget (although if you’re anything like me, Budget-fatigue probably hit you 2 hours into Budget Day, if not earlier) and share some thoughts about how it’s going to shape the landscape in the public sector for the rest of this year, as it’s mid-June already.

2019: The Year of Delivery

2019 is certainly shaping up to be a year of activity (and possibly even delivery) – you can’t walk into a government department without tripping over a review. Environment, education, health, welfare, justice – every subject matter and policy discipline looks like it’s getting a once-over. Tight time frames to get findings in front of Ministers and Cabinet are a common theme, meaning a fast-moving contract market.
