Faith Perez from Affordable Staff and welcome to part 2 of our Ozzie slang challenge.
With our business operating from Australia and our managed office within the Philippines, we’re asking our Philippines team if they know the meaning of a number of commonly used Ozzie sayings.
Many of our team have heard these sayings used from their clients everyday so we’re going to mix it up a little and add a few tough sayings they may not have heard before.
We had a lot of fun in the first challenge so it’ll be interesting to hear the responses from our team today. Ok, let’s get into it!!!
