With a rapidly increasing population, Auckland provides excellent career and working opportunities for health care professionals. Auckland medical and healthcare jobs are plentiful and spread over 50 locations, this in addition to general practice and other health practitioners.
Auckland, the 'City of Sails' is New Zealand's largest urban centre with over 1.3 million residents (over 30 percent of the population). The multi-cultural metropolitan region is made up of Auckland City, North Shore City, Waitakere, Manukau, Papakura, and parts of Rodney and Franklin districts.
Auckland is in a volcanic (inactive) region, and famous for beautiful harbours, gulfs, rivers and bays, all of which can be enjoyed in a generally warm climate (warm, humid summers and mild, damp winters). It offers all the attractions of a small, lively city including shopping, restaurants, museums, parks, gardens, sport, sailing, theatre, art galleries and more. It is also famous within New Zealand for traffic congestion in peak hours (unlike the rest of the country).
