May - Locum GP, Christchurch

My impression of Accent Health Recruitment is that they are a very efficient, helpful and
friendly group of professionals without whose help I would not be in NZ about to start a new job. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.

I am a GP who is currently working in England. I wanted to try a working holiday so I did some research and found out online about an opportunities NZ expo. I went along to the Leeds Expo, I met Accent Health Recruitment and after an initial chat they said we can simply keep in touch until I decide on a start date and location. When I was ready to set a date for work two years later - Accent arranged a job interview for me in Christchurch.

After reference checking and checking documents and work history, and after swapping a lot of emails and phone calls and I was offered a job. The employer held the job open for me for nearly 6 months, while I arranged the paper work. The medical council paper work seems rather daunting, but was not insurmountable.

I had to collate and take to NZ all my original degrees and certificates. The Medical Council in NZ needed to check the originals and confirm I was who I said I was!

Accent Health Recruitment assisted with my registration, arranged my accommodation at a private house, picked me up from the airport and allowed me time to settle in. When I needed to have my interview for the NZ Medical Council to finalize my NZ registration, Accent Health Recruitment picked me up, and also took me to the bank to finalize opening my account.
