If you’ve ever considered the idea of living and working in Australia or New Zealand, the response from anyone who has already made the move is likely to be ‘well, what are you waiting for?’. Beautiful scenery, amazing weather, great employment opportunities, relaxed way of life. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Surely these countries tick all the boxes?!...
…except that in reality, it’s never that simple. Let’s not kid ourselves - whilst all of the above may be true, upping sticks and moving to another country is a huge decision, especially when that country may be on the other side of the world, far from your family and friends.
However daunting the process may seem though, it can also be exciting and, ultimately, hugely rewarding. As with every life changing decision, preparation is key. You want to be stepping off that plane ready to hit the ground running, and the more you know about the amazing country you are moving to, the more prepared you will feel to take the plunge.
And that’s where we can help. We’ve put together these handy guides to living and working in Australia and New Zealand, to help give you an insight into what life would be like ‘down under’.
So have a read through, and then ask yourself – what are you waiting for?
These guides aren’t just for healthcare professionals. If you’ve got a friend thinking of a move, no matter what their profession, feel free to share these guides with them.
