Tasmania is a truly unique location. Australia’s southernmost state offers clean, white sandy beaches, forests of Huon Pine and massive tree ferns and pristine mountain lakes. Whether it is high culture, the arts and great music you are after or hiking, diving and fishing….Tassie has it all.
With a temperate climate, it doesn’t suffer the wild fluctuations that other regions do. The summer nights are warm and mild and seem to stretch for ever staying light until after 9.30 pm in the summer.
Hobart, the capital, is a very affordable city, easy to navigate and has a range of excellent schools to choose from along with a well-respected university. An international airport offers travel to most of Australia’s capitals and some regional centres too.
But don’t just take my word for it; why not check out what Lonely Planet says:
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.
