New Zealand offers huge variety in Medical Practice, location and lifestyle – discover what’s waiting for you in the best little country in the world!
New Zealand is a beautiful and diverse little country on the edge of the vast Pacific Ocean. The pristine landscape holds mountain ranges, native rainforests and sub-tropical bush, volcanoes, high alpine country, rolling green farmland, and some of the most beautiful beaches on Earth. Visiting New Zealand can feel like stepping into another world.
A vibrant and modern country, New Zealand is known for its adventurous and innovative spirit. The growing population is incredibly diverse, with almost all the world’s cultures represented. Our history and heritage is rich and complex despite being a young country, with the first Polynesian settlers arriving around 1250-1300 AD. New Zealand is a welcoming, open society, and offers a range of lifestyle options to suit the individual and family alike. Our largest cities are cosmopolitan hubs that offer the best cuisine, boutique shopping, arts and culture, entertainment and nightlife.
New Zealand is famous for its adventure sports, from bungee jumping to snowboarding. The New Zealand wine industry is internationally regarded and provides many opportunities for a relaxing weekend exploring the vineyards and sampling the gourmet produce of our rich agricultural areas. For those keen to get back to nature, the rural Kiwi lifestyle is a blessing, though you are never too far from a big town or city – another benefit of life on an island. Wherever you live, mountains or the coast will be close, and they are guaranteed to be among the most beautiful you will see in your lifetime.
If you’re after something different in your lifestyle and medical practice, working as a locum in New Zealand could be just the thing you are after. If you’re thinking of a long term or permanent change, the lifestyle and excellent practicing environment in New Zealand is sure to tempt you. Many doctors work with us on a locum basis at first, before taking on a permanent role and never looking back.

Whether it’s a week, a month or half a year in a beachside community, a new city, a classic kiwi small town or a rural community, the Ochre team can find the position to suit you.
