Senior Registration Consultant
My job as part of the registration team is to guide and support our Doctors through the professional registration and immigration application process. I am a licensed immigration adviser with the Immigration Advisers Authority in New Zealand and am authorised to provide advice in relation to temporary work and visitor visas, as well as permanent residency applications.
Prior to joining Head Medical in 2009, I worked within the recruitment industry since graduation in 2004, primarily in support as opposed to recruitment roles. I also spent a year travelling the world and taking in various countries, including New Zealand and Australia, where I had the opportunity to live and work in Melbourne.
There are a lot of things that I love about my job. From start to finish I can work with Doctors and their families for anywhere up to a year, and during that time you are able to build strong working relationships with them and often end up feeling like one of the family! One of the things I enjoy most is receiving the first email from our Doctors after they have arrived and settled in to their new lives, being able to hear their excitement and enthusiasm for their new lives down under.
