Who we help

Our registration support package is for General Practices that source their own candidates from overseas, but need help with the registration process.

Alecto expertise

As part of our ongoing work of recruiting GPs from the UK , Ireland and New Zealand, we have extensive experience in supporting GPs through the transition to Australia. In particular we have established registration support systems for GPs seeking recognition from statutory bodies in Australia.

Our registration team has developed a working knowledge of the processes and regularly provides information about how to avoid the pitfalls in the registration process.

Because we have dozens of candidates going through the system at any given time, we are quick to pick up on any changes in the system which means we can react fast and respond with appropriate measures.

We offer this same service to our regular clients who may have sourced their own overseas candidates through direct contact or referrals. This helps to ensure that your candidates get the same level of service as candidates sourced through Alecto Australia and to ensure that they are supported throughout the transition process.
