About us

Aussi Jobs was created by Anissa Jones, and started on Christmas Day in Cottesloe in 2006.  She started advertising for travellers on her family's green garbage bins, on the road outside a family members house, so all the backpackers going to Cottesloe Beach for a christmas day party,  had a new job agency to contact to find work. 

 

Since then, through word of mouth, there have been thousands of travellers coming to Aussi Jobs to see what we are all about and finding work.

 

Anissa's goal is to help her clients and travellers have a rewarding work experience together, and also to develop life long friends and contacts around the world.

 

Who works here?



Anissa Jones

Director

My family have been farmers and pastoralists for over 100 years, and I have had the opportunity to be raised on an outback station near Kalgoorlie and was schooled in Perth. During school term, we spent weekends at the farm in Gingin and holidays back at the Station, so I am used to hard work, and I certainly know how to get my hands dirty. In the agricultural sector, I have personally done the following:
  • Motorbike Mustering
  • Shearing (shed hand, wool classing, drenching)
  • Cooking for many (and good!)
  • Lamb Tailing inc mulesing
  • Feedlot cattle, cattle ear tags, assist in cattle births, hay baling, tractor driving, dairy farming
  • Bookkeeping for family business
  • Broad Acre farming
  • Banksia Flower (Hookeriama) cutting and stripping
  • Vineyard training
  • Table Grapes
After completing a Travel Diploma, I did my Australian duty and left Perth to travel overseas. It was only meant to be a 6 month adventure, and after 4 years I returned permanently to Perth. In London I worked in Hospitality then secured employment with a large healthcare corporation in their African Marketing Division. This employment gave me the opportunity to save and use my holidays to travel quite extensively over this period to European and African countries (with my backpack!). Back in Perth, I have been in the Recruitment Industry now a total of 22 years and run a busy life with an active 15 year old son.
