On April 06, Bula Outsourcing officially launched its Fiji headquarters in the presence of Fiji prime minister Honorable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama and Australian deputy high commissioner to Fiji Paul Wilson.  

Bula Outsourcing offers a broker service, loan processing, and virtual assistance for a cross section of industries across Australia and New Zealand. It prides itself on a community first approach giving back to communities - reinvesting and embodying the Bula Spirit.

First established in July 2021 with 10 employees, the organisation has grown to over 70 staff members and continues to expand.

The Bula board is made up of three individuals who are also founders of the organisation – executive chairman Clive Kirkpatrick, CEO and managing director Josie Prasad, and chief operations officer Aaron Milburn.

Kirkpatrick (pictured) said Bula Outsourcing focuses on outsourcing and offshoring arrangements.

“Seeing how quickly our organisation is growing thanks to the impeccable services provided by our team and, most importantly, the support from our clients and stakeholders, we are pleased to announce Bula is now looking to expand further into other sectors and specialised fields locally,” Kirkpatrick said.

The executive team has seen opportunity in the Australian mortgage broker industry and is looking at tapping into international markets.

“Over 60% of all mortgages in Australia are placed with a lender through a mortgage broker, and the Australian mortgage market is approximately five times the size of Fiji GDP,” he said.

Prasad elaborated on how the organisation’s focus is to fulfill its promise through its corporate values – “we show respect, we act with integrity, and we deliver”.

“Our mission is simple – to contribute value to our clients’ businesses by providing customised solutions and taking pride in being a centre of excellence. We aim to deliver professional services through quality, innovation, and expertise,” Prasad said.

Prime minister of Fiji Honorable Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama said the area provides a skilled, young, literate English-speaking and tech-savvy workforce easily understood by an Aussie, Kiwi, Brit or American.

‘’We have a stable business environment that has produced consistent, strong economic growth through consistent policy making for a nine-year period, prior to the pandemic,’’ Bainimarama said.

Prasad announced the Bula board had identified a few opportunities to give back to the people of Fiji through initiatives which will be rolled out in phases over the next few months.

“These initiatives are centred around building communities through sports, employment, and education. One of these initiatives is our Women Empowerment Initiative, where Bula Outsourcing will support women in sports through funding, mentorship programs and employment,” she said.

Other future initiatives announced include a higher education program and healthcare for the elderly.
