1. Application
2. Position
3. Interview
4. Appointment offer
5. Registration
6. Sponsorship, visa and registration
7. Travelling to New Zealand

1. Application
First, you need to make contact with us. Please ensure you check out the things we require from you in Getting started and Working in New Zealand. Then send us your CV to speed up the process. We will contact you via telephone or email to further discuss your aims and we will also get the process started for qualification and reference checking.

PLEASE NOTE: To qualify for registration you may have to do an English language proficiency test based on your country of origin and training. It’s very important that you prepare adequately for this - better still, it’s best to have this organised before you apply for a position.

2. Position
If you have not applied for a specific position, we will source a suitable position for you from our extensive database, discuss it with you and submit your resume and references to our client.

3. Interview
We organise the interview for you on behalf of our client and inform you of all the information you need to know about the position and the interview details.

4. Appointment offer
Congratulations! At this stage we will negotiate for you your salary and other benefits. Now you have been offered a position we will send you the employment contract for you to sign on behalf of our client.

5. Registration
Your registration is your passport to working as a medical practitioner in New Zealand. We will prepare the documentation to enable you to register with the appropriate district board and the New Zealand Medical Council. The process is different for specialists and non-specialists. We will discuss this with you based on your individual circumstance.

Please note: the registration is generally the lengthy part of the process. A typical application takes between two and six months.

In New Zealand, doctors are registered to perform professional services known as scopes of practice. For more detailed information about the registration process and the scope of practice for which you will be eligible please visit the Medical Council of New Zealand.

6. Sponsorship, visa and registration
The hospital or practice that employs you will also sponsor you to stay in the country. We will guide you through this process on behalf of your employer and Immigration New Zealand.

It may take up to four weeks for you to obtain your visa so again allow yourself plenty of time.

You will need to make a separate visa application for each member of your family who will be travelling with you. The process will also include undergoing a full medical for you and family members travelling with you.

7. Travelling to New Zealand, research and preparation
It’s well worth checking out our helpful links to prepare yourself for your new journey. Here you will find resources to assist you professionally as well as practical information on the New Zealand way of life, real estate guides, schools and universities - even local cuisine.

To get your placement happening faster please apply online or contact us for a confidential chat.
