Transition Medical has been very helpful in my process of finding a job as a GP in New Zealand. Emma has guided me along the way with finding the vacancies, interviews and contract negotiations. Kirsty was very helpful in the process of the Medical Council registration. Both were very friendly, attentive and quick to respond when I had any questions. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Transition Medical again in the future!

I would like to thank Emma and Kirsty at transition medical for all the help and support I received from them. Emma is knowledgeable and guided me very thoroughly right from the beginning. Kirsty helped me get through the medical council paperwork with ease. They both are very hardworking and prompt in their response. It was great working with Transition medical which is a very reliable recruitment agency. I would highly recommend Transition medical to anyone considering relocating to Australia or New Zealand.

Thanks to Emma and Kirsty at Transition Medical for helping me land an amazing job in Australia! When I started the process of making enquiries, I initially tried contacting other agencies as well, but I did not like the locations on offer, I felt dismissed and I was made to feel as if I had unrealistic expectations. In contrast, Emma carefully listened to what I wanted, and was the only one that was able to match me to my dream location when others couldn’t.
The service and knowledge Transition Medical provide is excellent, and they helped me every step of the way. Without them I would not have been able to complete this complex move.
I am now working in a beautiful practice with a great team in a city near the beach. I highly recommend their services!

From my first email enquiring about moving to NZ to the last email checking I was settling in, the service provided by Emma and Kirsty has been incredible. I honestly have no idea how much paperwork was involved because it was all done for me. Whenever I had a question they had the answer and always replied promptly. On top of this there was an ongoing global pandemic and the extra help given about the managed isolation process was invaluable. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about the whole process and couldn’t think of doing the relocation without them.

Emma and Kirsty have been fantastic in organising my move to New Zealand. Let’s face it, there is loads of admin required to move and work abroad, especially in medicine. It’s been really helpful having Transition medical find me a job that fits my requirements, and guide me through all the steps involved to make it a reality.  Access to a specialist visa advisor meant I didn’t have to fill all those forms out.

Since being here, I know other doctors new to New Zealand had to do this themselves.  It has given me peace of mind to know that there is a team who know the complete process, so I could concentrate on other things instead.  Emma and Kirsty have always been quick to respond to emails and calls, with a friendly disposition.  Contacts with transition medical feel personal rather than interacting with some of the larger companies. I highly recommend their service.

Take a look at my new home!

I honestly cannot thank Emma and Kirsty at Transition enough for all their hard work and support. From the initial conversation to discuss my options and potential jobs, to facilitating zoom meetings with my potential employer and supporting me in making the right decision for me. They were so thorough at every step and handled ALL the paperwork for me taking that burden off my shoulders. I honestly don’t think I could have done it without them, there were so many hoops to jump through but Transition made it seamless.

With the pandemic we had a very tough time getting over here, it was emotionally draining, Emma and Kirsty were there at every step to support us through it all and finally get us over here, I would highly recommend Transition medical to anyone looking to relocate to Australia, they are just wonderful.

I only have positive feedback for you and Transition Medical. Kirsty, Emma  and the organisation have been amazing every step of the process. They  helped me out with this huge amount of paperwork which made everything a lot easier!

Moving to the other side of the world seemed quite daunting at first but with the guidance I received from Emma and Kirsty, the whole process was made incredibly smooth despite the multiple hurdles along the way. I recommend transition medical every day of the week and twice on a Sunday!

Thank you so much for facilitating our move to New Zealand; especially given the task of finding 2 GP placements. The whole process with transition medical was smooth from beginning to end and we felt there was a very personal approach to finding the right practice for us, with no pressure. Would 100% recommend Emma, Kirsty and the team to anyone looking to relocate (in fact, we are already telling our friends)

You guys were the best! You responded so quickly always, were always available when I called and came up with great ideas without me asking (work to residence visa)  Thanks Emma, Kirsty and the whole team.
