New Year. New Lifestyle. New Zealand 2017.

We are looking for a General Practitioner for a exciting opportunity in the heart of the picturesque Marlborough Region on the South Island of New Zealand.  

The Marlborough Region is best described as a lifestyle. Sitting at the top north-east corner of the South Island, it enjoys one of New Zealand’s sunniest climates with hot, relatively dry summers and crisp winters. It is also well known for the picturesque Marlborough Sounds and can also lay claim to starting the modern New Zealand wine industry.​

  • Embrace that work life balance 
  • Commence in early 2017 and enjoy the Kiwi summer
  • Full Time position with a competitive salary & relocation package 
  • Strong real estate market & affordable housing to suit everyone's taste & style
  • Incredible scenery and diverse wildlife 

The Marlborough Region has a wide range of leisure activities that can be enjoyed by everyone & is home to some of New Zealand's most recognised native wildlife. You can enjoy swimming with dolphins in the Marlborough Sounds and watching whales in Kaikoura and whilst walking through the bush and along the rugged coastline you may be lucky enough to spot the shy wild pigs (who were once released by Captian Cook at Ships Cove). There is never a shortage of places to go & things to see & do. The region also offers spectacular scenic boat cruises, fishing, water-skiing and kayaking for people who have a love of the water.  

This is a highly sort after location in New Zealand and regardless of the time of year, there is always something going on.

Why NZ?

New Zealand is becoming more and more a location of choice for those who previously considered Australia as the most desirable location down under. Its rapid growth compared to other developed countries has recently been referred to as a “rock star economy” and it was voted the best place in world to raise a family by the 2014 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey, with the report describing it as “an ideal destination to raise active, outdoorsy and healthy children.”

Medical Professionals are well-remunerated and enjoy good working conditions and an excellent work life balance in New Zealand. There’s never been a better time to look more closely at what NZ has to offer:

  • No geographical restrictions – opportunities in major cities, towns, coastal, and rural locations
  • Great transport links, most locations fly to International Airports making flight connections to/from NZ easy
  • Excellent educational system, with private and public schools as well as a number of tertiary institutions
  • Living well and feeling healthy is embraced as a lifestyle for all the family

We are Licenced New Zealand Immigration Advisors and provide support & advice
