This is exciting news! My wife is perfectly suited to this position and incidentally you posted the job on the 14th of Jan which is her birthday! I assume we must send her resume for the position to Lucy?

My wife has been managing a organisational development and training organization for the past 15 years. She has 2 masters degrees and is registered as Industrial Psychologist. She and her team consults extensively to corporates like SASOL .

Are you involved with the appointment of this position? Do you know if the employer would be willing to wait for the approval of the work permit if my wife would be successful?

We are in the process of emigrating to Canada and this will possibly speed up the process!

Look forward to hearing from you.

John put yourself in the employers shoes. They will have a mountain of very well qualified "local" applicants. No work permit paper issues and no waiting. Scheduling an interview is easy with the locals. Checking references are easy. The work experience of local applicants is with companies everyone knows (Canadian experience).

And there will be applicants applying who either know the hiring manager personally or have a strong referral via a friend (networking).

I'm just using your post as an example of the challenge facing folks based in SA who are looking for work and sponsorship here while based in SA.

I say GO FOR IT because all things are possible. People do get lucky breaks. But for me the best route is to have PR rights and feet on the ground here.

Hi John

Nice to hear from you and congratulations on your big decision! Unfortunately I don't have more information and don't work for the company. I actually applied for a position back in June 2012 and never heard back from them until earlier this week when they e-mailed me this position.

Everything of the best
