Are you planning for your new life down under? Alecto has created a brief guide to making the move.
Once you have made the life changing decision of your intention to move to Australia you will naturally be filled with excitement and enthusiasm about starting the new chapter of your life.
The practicalities can seem quite daunting at first, but if you are organised and able to seek the help and advice of experts and those who have already made the move, then the dream of your new life down under can happen without unnecessary stress!
Finding a job in Australia can seem quite complex and you may not know where to start. Using a good and reputable recruitment agent can help alleviate this fear. It is important to identify a recruitment agent that specialises in securing roles for GPs in Australia and equally as important is a recruiter who can assist in the registration process involved once a contract has been agreed and signed.
Part of your job search will require you to identify a specific location where you plan to live. This is particularly important due to the restrictions that are imposed on GPs moving from overseas. You will need to understand District of Workforce Shortage (DWS) locations and what this means. Some of the other considerations to think about when you are deciding on a location are: –
Once you have decided on a location or are open to options on living in different states then you need to start the process of identifying a suitable role for yourself. The recruitment agent will have a detailed consultation with you which will enable them to represent you to the most appropriate practices for what you are looking for.
Once a contract has been presented and accepted then you need to be aware of the registration process involved. At Alecto Australia, we have a dedicated Registration Manager who can take you through this complex process to ensure things go as smoothly as possible and at no cost to you. The registration process can take 5-8 months to be completed – if you are fast with paperwork. This registration process includes all aspects of being a fully registered GP in Australia and assistance with your visa process.
The process can at times be complex and requirements can change at any time. Our team speak to organisations on your behalf and help with filling in applications.
In addition to the above you also need to consider the other important matters when you arrive such as: –
Use the steps above to help your move down under be stress-free and to give you peace of mind.
