Ivy Shiela Pilare

Registered Nurse, Philippines

“I always believe that success comes to those who proactively pursue it. So if an opportunity doesn’t knock on your door, build your own door. Or better yet, find the right people who can lead you to the right opportunities.

My name is Ivy and I’m a registered nurse from the Philippines. I’ve always put my family first. Now that my children are all grown up, I said to myself, ‘It’s not too late. I can still pursue my passion.’ After years of taking care of my family, I finally decided to go back to my profession.  

Now that I have the time and the freedom to focus on my career, I began to work as a nurse. But it just wasn’t enough. I realised that my salary I won’t be able to sustain my needs, and I also wanted to stop wondering what’s on the other side of the fence, so I looked for ways to work abroad—a goal I didn’t knew would be so difficult to achieve.   

Despite my work experience and passed exams, all my applications failed because my past agencies didn’t process my application efficiently. Two agencies, 16 months, and  tens of empty promises later, I finally saw IANS though an FB ad, and this was the first big step to my UK dreams.  

Lost and frustrated, I decided to attend IANS’ webinar, and it was more than what I could hope for. IANS was like thunder. My lost hopes turned into realised dreams just two months after attending their webinar. While other agencies took my application for granted, IANS made sure that I’d achieve my goals in such a short time. 

I attended IANS’ webinar last February, and two months later, I got my UK visa. Aside from their hassle-free services, what I love the most about IANS is how they supported me in my UK application. They filled all gaps and created a clear and systematic pathway for me. Unlike other agencies that provided generic services, IANS offered me tailor-made solutions. 

Now, I’m in the UK, working towards my other career goals. If you want the same result, attend their webinar and experience the IANS magic. I’m telling you. You won’t regret it.”

I approached other agencies but I had little to no progress with my UK application.


I saw IANS's FB ad so I checked on their page. I decided to attend their webinar after.


I joined IANS and received amazing support throughout my UKRN journey.


In just two months, I got my UK visa. Soon after, I entered the UK.
