If you are a registered mental health nurse, jobs for you are easy to find. It’s just trying to find the right one in the right place. If, on top of finding a new job you are planning to relocate halfway around the world, to start a better life for yourself, it’s a good idea to use a recruitment company to help you find the right one.
The New Zealand health system is sound and operates to a high standard. Because of gaps in the types of people working in across the country already, there are ongoing areas of need in several areas, especially when it comes to experienced staff. Many people emigrating discover that they can use their past experience and a desire to start over, to move a little faster up the career ladder than they would have back home, with the added benefit of a more relaxed pace of life, a chance to go exploring on their days off and a friendly nation to settle in.
A recruitment company is a little like a matchmaker. The goal is that both you and your new employer are happy with the move, so they have well tried systems to help you to know you’ve made the right decision. They are your eyes and ears on the ground with your potential employers, and can help you work out which region of the country, and which health board, would work best for you.
As a registered mental heath nurse, jobs are just one part of the puzzle. You’ll know how much stress can be involved with moving across the world and how this can impact relationships and work. However using a recruitment consultant can reduce this down to manageable levels as they can often help negotiate relocation packages, and help sort out where you’ll be living when you first arrive. This takes a lot of the stress off the whole endeavour.
Once you’ve started talking with a consultant, it’s really important to be as upfront with them about what you want in a registered mental health nursing job, so that they can help you find something that matches your skills, experience and of course your desired new life in a new country. If you’re a beach or a mountain person make sure you mention that, as well as any other concerns. It’s all part of the service to ensure you gain a job you are happy about.
