How a recruitment agency can ease the transition of moving abroad

International doctors

Moving across the country to live and work as a doctor can be a big step, that's why having a medical recruitment agencies support can make all the difference.

At Medrecruit, we have a dedicated IMG team. All of the staff in our International Team have made the move to New Zealand themselves so they can offer you first-hand advice on what it is like to move to the other side of the world.

We understand how much is involved in an international move so we are committed to being there for you every step of the way.

Once we have helped you determine eligibility for medical registration, we will assist you on a tailored job hunt to find the right role for you. Once the role is secured, we take care of the full medical registration application, liaising with the issuing authority on your behalf.

We organise a complimentary immigration consultation for you so that you have all of the information you require to determine which is going to be the best visa for you and your family. After this, we assist you in completing all of the hospital’s new employee paperwork to ensure you are able to start work on time.
