Taranaki. This region is on the West Coast of the North Island and enjoys a temperate climate with warm summers and mild winters. The population of 104,000 enjoy life in one of the most beautiful regions of New Zealand. Situated mid-way between Auckland and Wellington, this region is one of those places in the world people visit, and find they never want to leave. The small yet thriving city situated in between a majestic mountain with excellent winter sports and a rugged coastline with world-renowned surf, great career opportunities, arts, culture, cafes and outdoor living mean it's a fantastic place to work, live and play.

The region is especially suited to anyone who loves the great outdoors or to families looking for family life and excellent schools and affordable housing.  The temperate climate and high sunshine hours (3rd highest in NZ), combined with a welcoming and multicultural community makes Taranaki a great destination.

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.
