We are have an exciting opportunity in a large rural hospital for a General Practitioner who has experience and a keen special interest in Emergency Medicine or Acute Care work.

The Waikato region is the fourth largest in area & population in New Zealand. It is bounded by Auckland on the North, Bay of Plenty on the East, Hawkes Bay on the South-East & Manawatu-Wananui & Taranaki on the South.

Are you interested in working in a diverse role which will see you combine General Practice and Emergency Medicine? Well this could be the opportunity for you.

The region boasts lush, green hills, with exceptional surf on the west coast and glorious beaches on the east coast.  Surfers come from all over the world to experience nearby Manu Bay's famous left-hand break and the Raglan Surf Beach lifestyle is appealing to all. Ski fields, fresh and saltwater fishing grounds are easily reachable as are many beaches and holiday spots.  New Zealand’s largest city is an easy 90 minute freeway drive away making this a great location with many possibilities.

Hamilton is the largest in the region. With a diverse population, this city is known for its well respected tertiary educational facilities, scientific research, world class stadiums and event venues, parks and gardens, fine cuisine and cafes and culture. 

Most recently, the rolling hills of The Shire were brought to life thanks to the filming of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Hollywood blockbuster movies. Hobbiton has remained open and is a popular attraction for movie and middle-earth fans alike.

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 great 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:

What Head Medical can do for you

Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we know it can also be a complex and time-consuming process. We’re specialists in international medical recruitment and have 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, so we’ll talk through your plans and 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 processes, and support you (and any family members) with the relocation itself.
