TEP (formerly Stablemate) closes its recruitment section and expands the migration section

Our company has operated a recruitment agency for 20 years, commencing business in July 1990. However, since Equine Influenza and the Economic Downturn the recruitment section has declined, so the final decision has been made to shut the recruitment agency. We are therefore unable to assist in the future with finding Australian employees or jobs.

We recommend the website www.racingjobs.com.au, which has been designed by the Australian Racing Board to assist with jobs in the racing and breeding industries.

We are however, going to maintain our international inbound program, which offers overseas workers between the age of 19 and 30 the opportunity to work in Australia for 12 months. Due to the Economic Downturn the number of program participants has declined and we expect this financial year to receive about 30 individuals. If we do have any inbound program participants that we feel may suit a particular business we will contact the relevant employer to determine if they may be interested in employing them.

TEP will continue to provide professional migration advice with the services of two highly experienced migration agents with an incredibly high success rate. We are also expanding the service to include areas of migration not covered in the past and we will be sending out a newsletter in the near future regarding the extension of this service. We have successfully negotiated with the Department of Immigration on some very challenging cases and have had an impact on a number of minor and major policy decisions. We enjoy taking the challenges the industry and regional Australia faces to decision makers within the department to the highest level.

If you have any migration issues going forward please feel free to
