I assume W&B are trying to get you into Canada on a Work Permit? I also assume you are quite happy to go anywhere in Canada? Do you mind me asking how much you have paid them to date?

Hmm well W&B are not allowed to charge you for finding employment for you. I assume you do not have any experience in a job on the list of 38? What about your Wife/Partner? 3500 pounds is a lot of money to have shelled out for nothing to happen.

I dont think they where charging for that i think the extra was for citizenship i have a feelin they was preparing the paperwork for work permit and the full citizenship. I am currently single with no ties thats why i say my life is on hold. As i dont want to stay in jersey there is no point getting close to people. And yes it is a lot of money but at the time i was wrapped up in all the positive talk. But no one could forseen the downfall of the economy. Perhaps it as just been bad timing. And things will turn round. Mmm (positive thinking). We will see.

It is still alot of money and they can't be charging you for Citizenship as you have to live in Canada for a certain amount of time with Permanent Residence before you can apply for Citizenship....

Good luck :0)

On the subject of Willis Brazalot......

I was recently recruiting for a position at the company I work for. (Not an electrician before you ask). One of the resumes I received was from a potentially well qualified Brit via Willis Brazalot i.e. they sent me his resume, albeit without contact details. (although it was easy enough to find him on linked in so I could have contacted him directly had I been minded too.) So they do something for their princely fee even if it's only scanning workopolis and careerbeacon, where this particular job was posted. Whether using WB to find jobs that are widely advertised is particularly good value is of course upto the punter in question.

We used WB to find out about our points then when they told us we had to pay £10,500 I thought - whatever they can do I can do myself so I did and it took my husband and I just 4 months to get his PR via the PNP route.

I found my hubby the job - just emailed a few companies he was very lucky that he got a reply the following day and 3 days later was given the job.

I wish you all the best and don't give up!...............but don't hand over any more money.

Thanks all i as for money handed over my contract says i can get back 98% back of what Ive paid. How easy that is a guess. But is there any point in goin back to square 1 now the way i see it Ive gone this far and been in this position this long i might as well stick it out. Or do i ya see thats the problem. I take most of the blame here i presumed it would al be plane sailing paying a good company so arrange things but a lesson learned i suppose. 1 more thing. The job interviews in vancouver and summerland over a year ago all said they would like me to join them. Now the economy turned for the worse a month later. But is it ok o contact these direct i have there email or do i leave it up to wb its like going behind there backs no. Thanks again everyone. Ian
