I was aware from talking with friends and research on the net quite what a complicated and time consuming process applying to work in Australia can be. With a young family and busy with work it seemed to make sense to find an agency with experience in the process to take pressure of myself in terms of what needed to be done to get to that all important job in Australia.
I was apprehensive about the process as it seemed very daunting……………
From my initial Skype conversation with Jessica I felt very at ease with her and felt she gained a good understanding about what I was looking for in a post in Australia
She had a few immediate suggestions for me with a fantastic amount of information on each of the posts which allowed me to have a better idea of what options were out there.
Jessica was fantastic at directing me through the onerous task of getting registered to practice in the UK with simplistic emails to prompt me as what I needed to do next etc and chasing things up on my behalf in Australia. This was all invaluable as I imagine trying to keep on top of it whilst working in the UK with family etc would mean my application for registration would still be in progress now!
As a family we have settled in to life in Australia well and are already enjoying the outdoor lifestyle as we hoped we would. It’s been a great change from the UK trying to pick which beach to try each weekend! It’s all been a very exciting journey.
It seems very daunting when you first start looking at making the move but I felt with Jessica having a very hands on approach to getting me through all the registration process (as well as finding me a position in a fantastically friendly practice) it really was much simpler than I could have hoped for it to be.
The lifestyle of being a GP here is hugely different to that in the UK and it’s been great to experience that.
