With 79 nominees, 10 finalists, and over 400 votes, the Joshies for 2021 truly showed off the best of the best companies who helped people move to the United States and companies who helped make life better after moving. But there can be only one winner of each category and I’m very excited to announce the winners for the Joshies 2021!

2021 Winner for a business that helps you move or setup in the US

Aussie Recruit, winner of the 2021 Joshie for a business that helps you move or setup in the US.

Aussie Recruit “connects Australians across all types of roles and levels with new career opportunities at E-3 Visa friendly companies who value Australians in San Francisco, New York and other US cities for no cost to you”. They also “give companies a competitive edge in hiring by showing you how easy it is to hire Australians in the US, and by providing you with access to a truly overlooked and untapped talent pool. We also help companies in or expanding to Australia, to hire talented returning expats.”

AR have attempted to support the whole Aussie community with work and immigration, everything that they can do to support us, they do! They both help settle in, reenter to Aus if need, and they’ve helped us with monthly webinars and support through Jonathan Grode
