GP Jobs in Australia – January 2019 update

Happy New Year. While it is currently just hovering above freezing here in Guildford, in Perth, it’s going to be about 30C this weekend….

We’re just waiting for the Immigration department to announce all of the changes to their visa rules. So far, the main one of interest is that permanent residents will be able to apply for a temporary parent visa. This’ll be valid for 3 or 5 years and renewable (up to a maximum of 10 years). There are going to be 15,000 available each year.

Vacancies: we have new jobs in the Melbourne area, with a client in London to see potential candidates at the end of February. Let me know if you’d like to meet them and I’ll make the arrangements.  Wollongong, south of Sydney has always been a good option for doctors wanting to move to NSW and a client there is looking for a GP. Perth also remains a hot spot for jobs, with vacancies both north and south of the Swan River.

I would strongly recommend Paul Brooks and Monique to GP’s and other relevant health professionals contemplating a move to Australia. After having contacted at least five different agencies dealing with GP’s relocating from the UK to Australia, Monique and Paul Brooks took the top spot in terms of understanding my requirements especially with the type of position my wife and I were looking for, the workings of the Australian Health Care, the paperwork involved, Immigration requirements, adjusting to the Aussie lifestyle etc. Their consistent help throughout the 10-12 month period prior to the move is definitely worth mentioning. They helped us settle on arrival in Australia and made our relocation process a smooth transition, especially as we had no prior local contacts. Now in Australia for a year I could not have entrusted my relocation to a better team. I would give them a 10/10 and wish them immense success in the future.
