Brisbane and Queensland

BrisbaneBrisbane and Queensland

Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia with a population of around 2 million. It is the capital of Queensland and situated in the south east corner of the state.

It is a well developed city with a quite a large business district and five office blocks over 200 m high.

It is has a humid sub-tropical climate and, as was seen early in 2011, when it rains, it really rains.

It’s a good place to live and has been popular with migrants from all over the world over the past few years. In some respects, Brisbane is probably the most ethnically mixed / multicultural city in Australia.

Industry wise, Brisbane is a big centre for business as it links in well with south east Asia . It has Australia’s third largest port, exporting the raw materials mined and food stuffs grown inland and importing  electrical and other consumer goods  from China and other countries in. Plus, it’s a major centre for IT. All in all a vibrant and growing city

I decided to make the move to Australia in December 2011 to work as a GP. It had always been an ambition of mine to move out there. In all honesty though I had no idea where to start. I searched online and emailed an agency. Paul emailed me back straight away with a lot of initial information and we arranged to talk. After a long discussion with him (he was very patient as I had a LOT of questions), to cut a long story short he sent me a lot of information about available jobs and how to make the move. I basically let Paul know the jobs I was interested in and he gave me more info and set up interviews (this all happened very quickly). Anyhow after the interview (for the job I liked) I was offered the job and accepted the contract. As I discovered a little bit at a time moving to Australia can be very time consuming and difficult with all the procedures and paperwork needed. Paul also put me in touch with Monique who is based in Australia. So I now basically had 2 contacts to ask questions. As I mentioned previously I had a lot of questions. I can’t even begin to describe how helpful and easy it was to communicate with them both. If I had a question, or if there was a problem it was sorted out asap. Moving to Australia as a doctor is hard, but Paul and Monique made it so easy for me, it was just more time consuming than difficult (collecting all the paperwork). Had I tried to do this without them I would have struggled an awful lot. Not only do they help you with the medical paperwork, they will also give advice on living in Australia and also help with other things that will need to be done to facilitate the move. They will talk you through every thing that needs to be done in a manner that makes things seem straightforward!

Now I’m here, I still have contact and the little things and attention to detail, such as phone calls to see how I’m settling in is amazing. I love the place, the job and I don’t think i would be here now without their help.

I can quite honestly say this is a fantastic service and i would recommend it to anybody! They will talk you through every thing that needs to be done.
