“AMMEON CARES. I AM NOT JUST ANOTHER NUMBER.”

Ireland has always been on the cards for myself and my family for a few years, I just hadn’t gotten the courage to do the big 9000 km journey. I started applying for work from South Africa not expecting to find work easily. Straight away I noticed a trend that companies only saw that I was living in South Africa and completely skipped over me.

Ammeon wasn’t one of those companies and they were more personable, I didn’t feel like another number. They showed me around the office, they explained my actual position and the culture around the office. At that point, I knew I wouldn’t be put in an unsuitable position, and even though I was on the other side of the world I could judge what I might be facing. I was ready to come to Ireland, now I just needed to find a home and get my family ready to go.

Moving house down the road is expensive but moving across the world was almost impossible to plan for. Clearly Ammeon knew how difficult it would be for me so they offered to pay for my flight and temporary accommodation for a month. They also hired a relocation company to help me find a home, as Ireland is facing a housing crisis. Ammeon is great, they are constantly introducing me to new people in my situation, they showed me around the city and they found me a pet-friendly home which is notoriously difficult to do.

Leaving South Africa was difficult but nothing could prepare me for how uncomfortable an 18-hour flight would be and how serious flight attendants take nose bleeds. I landed in Dublin during the early hours of the morning and my South African cellphone provider did not switch on roaming and all the shops were closed. I had never been to Europe before and I had to find my way across Dublin without a GPS. But by far the most difficult thing out the whole process was to get an Irish bank account, even if you are equipped with an Irish passport they would block you at every turn. Ammeon stepped in to save me again, one phone call from them and the banks welcomed me with open arms. These were really the biggest things I had to worry about because Ammeon handled everything else for me.

I have been with Ammeon for almost a year now and I get to work with new and interesting things every day. Funnily enough, they made moving to Ireland so easy for me that it doesn’t even feel like I moved my entire family across the world. A brand new country, freedom and safety that I have never felt in my life. Our lives have only improved since emigrating to Ireland, no matter what people may say about the weather.
