Working in New Zealand as a General Practitioner, Specialist, Registrar or Junior Doctor is an excellent career and lifestyle move.
New Zealand presents an unparalleled work-life balance for doctors. The pace is gentler, people are generally more relaxed and everyone is in it for the right reasons. Most GPs work between 32 and 40 hours per week with clinical autonomy and excellent working conditions, amidst or close to the most visually stunning environments on the planet.
Insights from our doctors
The easy-going atmosphere, the great outdoors and the sparsely populated country made NZ a great destination. Stop considering the move and make it happen! I haven't met anyone who had regrets about making the move.
Dr Jacob Stiggelbout
The New Zealand Healthcare System allows you to have genuine relationships with your patients... everyone is concerned about the general well-being of their fellow staff and patients and not about making money for the hospital.
Dr Garett Burke
Emergency Medicine Physician
Thank you for all the work you've done to find me locums across New Zealand. You make everything easy. If you are considering locum work, I recommend talking to the team at Ochre Recruitment.
Dr Julie Hardy
I am very pleased with the NZ Ochre Recruitment team. Their service is professional, fast and efficient. They have not failed even once in my seven years of experience with them.
