In recent years Saudi Arabia has witnessed a period of high growth and economic progress. Record oil revenues have given rise to increased public spending on infrastructure to match the increasing needs of a fast growing population. Priority has been given to education and healthcare, which has led to the growth of medical cities as well as the creation of many new healthcare institutes. This has created a number of exciting new career opportunities for doctors interested in working in Saudi Arabia.

How Head Medical can help

Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK's specialist in international medical recruitment and we‘ve helped many doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
