The process of moving overseas is a big step, but with the support and expertise of Origin Medical you can be assured of a professional and dedicated service. Origin's David Martin is someone who has already made the move to New Zealand from the UK, and he will advise and help you in all aspects of the transition in moving overseas. David can also offer you invaluable advice on an "outsider's" perspective in New Zealand, sharing his experiences of the people and culture of this country. What's more, by choosing Origin you won’t be dealing with multiple people throughout the recruitment process, but with one dedicated person who will gain your trust and familiarity while guiding you each step of the way. You will discover that Origin provides a completely personal service devoted to you: designed to eliminate the stress involved with negotiating with employers, filling out forms and applying for visas and medical registration.

  • David will contact you and take the time to develop a full perspective on your personal and professional situation.

  • ​We will discuss your work and location preferences and proactively seek opportunities in your chosen area(s).

  • Working together, we will develop a plan and operate to a timeframe best designed to meet the needs of you and your family.

  • Immigration and registration processes can appear daunting and that’'s why Origin will work closely with you every step of the way, providing you with all the paperwork necessary to obtain both medical council registration and a full work visa. It is our goal to make sure you are ready to start work in New Zealand on schedule.

  • As an emigrant himself, David can offer first hand advice on settling to New Zealand and tips on making the adjustment as seamless as possible. Origin will also help you to research accommodation, schools and activities to ensure your placement in New Zealand is the best it can be.

  • But the service won't stop there! Once you are in New Zealand, Origin will continue to provide ongoing support and advice for as long as you require, as you become fully settled in the country.
