One of the youngest members of the Visa Solutions Australia
team is Jack Pearson-Lemme. He may be 20 years-old but Jack comes to us with a
broad range of business skills. If you
ring the office you may get through to him on the phone.
“My job title is Business Generalist and it’s not hard to
see why. I do the accounts, invoicing assisting with cases and helping to lodge
application forms. I also work on the
website as I have some IT skills, so excuse the pun, but I am a Jack of all
trades, but that’s why I love this role so much.”
Graduating from UWA into working life
Jack was born in Perth and went to Hale School, and then secured
a place to study a Bachelor of Commerce Degree at the University of Western
Australia majoring in Accounting and French.

migration industry now which means it’s a great time to be working in this

blood in him.
“My Mother came over here and met my Father, so she’s a
migrant. Every year we go to England to
see my grandparents who live in Huddersfield.
The whole family is soccer mad and I have an interest in the English Premier League,” he explained.
Drumming up a love of music
Outside of work he enjoys soccer (naturally) and
tennis. He used to play percussion
instruments including the drums and the piano and was part of both an orchestra
and ensemble while at Hale School.
More recently he’s spent some time as a mentor helping young
Sudanese boys living in Australia to improve their English and Mathematics.
“I’ve been volunteering with the Sudanese Australian

there’s a good culture and atmosphere and the Managing Director Dan Engles is
