The location

Canberra- Australia’s Capital city and set in a state all of its’ own, ACT is home to over 345,000 residents and the Australian Parliament. It is a unique city as it was purpose built as a compromise capital between the two rival cities Melbourne and Sydney.

Canberra is a thriving city with a low unemployment rate, and only a couple hours drive away from Sydney. It is also close to some of the East Coast’s most beautiful coast line and some of Australia’s ski fields. Other leisure pursuits include wineries with cellar doors that welcome visitors to taste their locally grown produce.

This clean safe city has the lowest unemployment rates in Australia and also the highest levels of pay.

Different people require different lifestyles and Canberra has it all to offer. You can choose to live in a city apartment or why not live the rural dream and spread out on suburban land! Most people only live about 20minutes away from the city centre, so commuter stress is non existent. Imagine being able to either walk to work or take a short bus journey with no traffic queues and time wasting ring roads!

What Head Medical can do for you
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.
