If you are looking for long-term or permanent medical positions, New Zealand should be at the top of your list.

According to a recent report by the HSBC, New Zealand is currently ranked second on a list of top expat destinations – behind only Singapore.

New Zealand offers expats a variety of choices when it comes to how you want to live your life.

While the country’s economic position is excellent, the potential for new and exciting experiences places New Zealand at the top of the charts.

So what does this little nation on the edge of the Pacific have to offer? Here is an in-depth look at three aspects of New Zealand’s success.

Work/life balance as a doctor in New Zealand

New Zealand is unique for so many reasons – but above all else has to be the quality of life many expats and Kiwis experience.

New Zealander’s cherish the time they spend with their family. The country’s 32-40 hour work week means that doctors can spend more of their day doing the things they love – be it with family, friends or even indulging in outdoor activities.

Whether you are looking to jump off a cliff with a piece of rubber tied around your ankles or cycle across spectacular mountain ranges and volcanos, New Zealand offers a selection of lifestyles to fit your interests.

New Zealand is a family-friendly place to live

Travelling with family is an awesome way to bond and develop valuable shared experiences. New Zealand provides plenty of attractions that encourage family-friendly fun.

A safe environment offers families fantastic opportunities to grow up together. From lush green parks to bright golden beaches, New Zealand is filled with pleasant locations and wide open spaces that combine both safety and adventure.

Even in New Zealand’s urban landscape, you will regularly see kids riding their bikes along suburban roads and playing hide and seek at the neighbourhood park.

A place to grow and learn

Alongside family grown values, an effective education is essential for a child’s development. New Zealand’s internationally recognised education system can offer your child an inspiring environment to flourish both academically and socially.

New Zealand’s unique history and melting pot of cultures are reflected in its wonderful school system. Professional and caring teachers can introduce your children to an international flavour and a healthy dose of outdoor education.

Whether you are looking to live in one of New Zealand’s major cities – with their diverse range of cultural experiences – or in one of its regional areas and their spectacular scenery, make sure you talk to Ochre Recruitment today.
