Sam started with Wavelength as a Regulatory Consultant in 2007. In 2008, Sam started a family and 12 months later returned on a part time basis. She then decided to commence studies in 2009 to become a Migration Agent, which she successfully transitioned into during 2010. Sam continues to work 4 days a week and truly values the family friendly culture and flexibility Wavelength provides.
How would you describe your work style?
My work style is quite flexible as my list of priorities change daily. I work within a team but there are some aspects of my role that are quite autonomous so I have to be on top of everything.
What are your current goals?
My goals are to ensure that I understand the policies and regulations for all registration bodies as well as the requirements for Immigration. I ‘m as up to date as possible on any new legislative changes to ensure the impact is minimal on applications that are currently in progress.
What are the key activities which you usually undertake in your working day?
My day consists of reviewing & submitting applications as well as liaising with the following authorities; the AMC, RACGP, AHPRA, Immigration and Medicare.
What do you believe are the key things which contribute to your success?
Being organised, keeping on top of all policy amendments, communicating any changes to the key stake holders, having a good understanding of the process and enjoying what I do.
What do you enjoy most about working at Wavelength?
I love the flexibility. I have a young family and I am able to work flexible hours including work from home days. I also enjoy being part of a great team who work towards the same goals, milestones and successes.
