AIM's assessment mistakes

Dear All,

I would appreciate knowledgeable people to help me out.
I had sent my application for assessment for an HR Manager with the Australian Institute of Management.The assessment was processed under 5 weeks and it came out negative.This was after they had asked for additional information which was promptly provided.

Basically,the assessment result letter stated that "none of the subordinate managers reporting directly to me had 3 or more people reporting to them in a managerial, supervisory or technical position". The result letter also stated that I wasn't reporting directly to the MD/CEO in my first 2 years of work in the same organization.

I find this very shocking and incomprehensible as my organization charts clearly indicated the managers under my supervision had at least 3 or more personnel working with them in a managerial,supervisory or technical positions!

Also,the experience I had in the last 6 years as an HR manager wherein I reported directly to my company's GMD/CEO was totally ignored in the assessment as they only mentioned the first 2 years of my work experience which was not in a role requiring reporting directly to the MD/CEO.

I find this mistake gravious and I did responded almost immediately referring to the documents that proved the assertions in the result letter otherwise. Rather than get a definite response,I got a response from AIM saying my email will be forwarded to the Senior Assessor but it is at their discretion to provide response.

Has anyone had an experience like this before? What should the next line of action be as AIM obviously made a mistake not assessing my documents as provided.I have waited for AIM to give a definite response but none has come from that office except the one as stated above.

Is there any way I can seek redress?Is there a quality control/assurance in place in AIM or is there any way I can bring the attention of the assessor to this mistake and get a response addressing their mistakes?

I would appreciate positive responses.

I've not gone through the skills assessment process, but it sounds like you have followed the correct steps - you've notified them of the information that would confirm you meet the requirements they have assessed negatively. I expect their response is a standard "we'll review but that doesn't guarantee a change of result" message, but since it sounds like you do meet the criteria hopefully that means they will change the assessment.

I haven't seen too many posts about AIM, but certainly it's not unheard of with the other skills assessors for them to make mistakes which are then corrected when a review of the assessment is requested.

Good luck!

Thank you!

I appreciate your response. I am hoping for a review or at least a comprehensive response that will address my queries and do hope AIM as a responsible organization will own up to their mistakes and do what is appropriate.

I just wish there is a quality assurance/control unit in AIM that addresses such mistakes or at least a department with DIPB that addresses migration assessment applicants' grievances. I do think it is absolutely unfair to leave applicants in the hands of authorized skilled migration assessment bodies without a feedback/feed-forward mechanism put in place.

I am convinced that the mistakes as it has been in my case isn't the first and many applicants have had to cough out an additional $700AUD to ask for review of a mistakes which is not their fault in the first instance.

I do hope for the best.

Thanks Lili,

Appeal is out of the question as you have to pay for an additional $700AUD (as against the intial application fee of $550AUD). Again,it takes an additional 8 weeks to get a response.

This is obviously not the best as the mistakes (or oversight if you will) was made by AIM and not the applicant. Besides,the same result might be issued if the attention of the assessor is not brought to their mistakes. The clause included in justifying an appeal stated that "new information" should be included in the appeal. As this is no new information,it will be unfair to want to ask for an appeal.

The question arises as to what exactly I am appealing against. The information which was already supplied or information which is non-existent.

I appreciate your response.

As I have posted several times. the AIM would fail Bill Gates.

If you have no luck with the AIM you might consider running you case past a RMA for an opinion.

Hello,
I'm in a similar situation, where my application is rejected because they can't find that I have 3+ managers were reported to me in previous job. Although I have provided 2-3 Statuary Affidavits from my reporting managers and some letters too.
and I got the same response as you received - So what finally happened to you application?
thanks.
