Good old fashioned kiwi hospitality - there's really nothing like it.
Come to Christchurch to be a New Zealand Registered Medical Officer, and make new friends. You'll find
 a ready-made community of RMO's just like you.
 

Maybe it’s all that sunshine, our determination to have a life, as well as a career, the incredible array of physical pursuits or all those wide open spaces and easy commutes. Whatever it is, Kiwis – and South Islanders in particular – are known as some of the most relaxed and friendliest people around.

One of the first thing that recent arrivals notice when they take up a doctor job in NZ, especially those from the bigger UK hospitals, is how refreshingly casual the atmosphere is.

Don’t get us wrong – professionalism and the highest standards are top of of our list of requirements for a New Zealand Medical job. But the traditional hierarchical culture that exists in many parts of the world just isn’t as tight. There’s more room to breathe, more room to get to know people, and more opportunities to really learn.

This lack of rigid structure is something that permeates throughout society. New Zealand has always been one of the most egalitarian and down to earth places to be – and it is something that still sets its people apart.

You’ll find it easy to connect with the locals and others just like you.


A great number of our RMOs are from other places, creating a thriving community of people who naturally find opportunities to socialise, play sport, and have fun with one another, as well as those who were born and bred here.

There are lots of opportunities to make new friends and to get out and about. From free concerts to the ever popular race days, there are a ton of reasons to get a group together and have fun.

 

Being away gives you a new start and new perspective. It's great to meet a whole new set of people and make friends somewhere different. Doctors jobs in New Zealand attract people from all over the world, who bring with them a real sense of adventure, and a passion for life that matches their commitment to their careers.

New zealand has long been known for its

'kiwi hospitality' and

it's true. "Kia ora. Welcome.”
