I signed up with Global Health Source in 2010 while planning to leave the UK and work and travel for a year in Australia. Global Health Source assisted me with information and advice in regards to gaining my physiotherapy registration to work in Australia, visas and requirements for when we arrived out there.
They were excellent from the beginning, putting time and effort into assisting me as best they could even before looking at employment. I have been with them since then. They have placed me very successfully into 2 locum posts, one in Australia and now my present locum position in Oamaru, New Zealand. Both positions have been great and they always liaise with you throughout the placements checking everything is okay and helping out with any queries. GHS always work to ensure you get the best contract possible with regards to pay and employment package.
They work very hard and are the best agency I have worked with, always very professional, friendly and genuinely care for their candidates. I have worked with other agencies in the past but GHS definitely have their candidates’ best interests in mind.
One of the positions they placed me in was in regional Western Australia, and I had my concerns but they were very reassuring and put me in touch with other candidates they had placed there which was great, and so we went for it and had a great 3 months.
I have been travelling and working around Australia and New Zealand and find them very understanding of my situation (i.e. when I want to work and how long for and at short notice too!) They also took on board the fact I am travelling with my partner, with regards to accommodation options and have also given us information for getting my partner a job.
I am definitely sticking with GHS while working our way round New Zealand and then potentially back to Australia. I would strongly recommend allied health professionals sign up with Global Health Source if they are planning to move and work in Australia or New Zealand, and do it as soon as you can because the sooner they can help the easier it is for you!
