He gave me a lot of helpful advice and guidance to start my family and I on our own personal emigration journey, I was lucky enough to work with Wes Zandt a few years ago so to see the Down Under Centre grow into what it is today is testament to Wes and his teams vision and hard work, what they offer is unique in the UK and a business idea that has helped so many people fulfil their dreams and ambitions to work and live in Australia.
An example of Wes Zandt going the extra mile, was just before we were due to emigrate, he made a special effort to put me in touch with some of his industry contacts so that we were given the best advice for banking and home removal etc, we received a fantastic personal service so thanks again Wes.
I would honestly recommend anyone who is considering temporarily or permanently moving to Australia to use the Down Under Centre, they offer a wealth of services and the team are fully knowledgeable on all aspects of skills assessment and migration.

“Well, where to start…. 6 years ago I did my vetasses with Wes as the instructor,. He made the whole process run smoothly and with a relaxed atmosphere which took the stress out of that part of the visa application.
Roll on 6 years, and we are now living in Australia, having been here 6 months. In this time, I have struggled to find a job in my trade as a plumbing & gas engineer. Despite dozens of job applications with little or no response and dropping my resume in just every company I could find, I contacted Wes to see if he could offer any advice…. He took the time out to discuss by telephone and then invited me to send my resume for his review. He came back with some helpful advice, which I acted on – I submitted this revised resume with my next job application – Lo and behold, this resulted in and interview and a job offer. Wes has been an absolute star – he didn’t have to do any of this, but clearly he has a real interest in his clients – past and present. Once again Wes, thank you so much. Your support and interest in my situation was most appreciated and helpful – I owe you a beer when you are next over here!!“

So so easy I still don’t quite believe it, the only part of the process I was worried about and I needn’t have been. From day one Wes was great putting us in contact with the RIGHT migration specialist and easing my fears, although I didn’t really believe it would be as easy as he said! He delivered on his promise, well worth the money for peace of mind and pushing my family on to the next part of our journey. These guys know what they’re doing, wish we’d met them sooner! Thanks so much, best investment in my families future I’ve ever made! Good luck in helping other families realise their dreams!

Warm, friendly and communicative, I knew exactly where I was at each step, finalising in the assessment day with helpful assessor and positive outcome known before leaving at the end of the day.

Me and Emily came to you back in August so I could do my skills assessment. We were working with Migration Specialists for our Visa, and we are super happy to say that we were granted our 189 visas yesterday!
Just wanted to say thanks to you guys there, we definitely could not have done without your help and then Sammy’s. It’s all been made so easy for us thanks to all of you and now, finally we have what we’ve talked about for the last 5 years turned into reality in just 6/7 months!
Everyone at the Down Under Centre and Migration Specialists has been so helpful, always got back to us ASAP and kept us up to date with the whole process.
Our flights are now booked and we leave on the 16th March and fly into Brisbane to spend some time on the Gold Coast with Emily’s Family! Thanks again for everything, it was a pretty sleepless night last night and we are still buzzing from the news haha!”

“Sam Merrell, UK – Mar 2016
I was put in touch with The Down Under Centre through our migration agent Emergico who highly recommended them for my Carpentry Skills Assessment. Nikki and Wes were soon in touch to introduce themselves and explained the process which I found reassuring.
Nikki confirmed our discussion with a follow up email which included all the documentation we were to gather.
During the correspondence that followed the staff at DUC offered sound advice and helped us through the process.
The next stage was to attend a Skype interview at DUC in London. Straight away we were made to feel welcome and the assurance instantly put me at ease.
I would not hesitate to recommend the friendly bunch at the DUC for the skills assessment part of your immigration process.
