I found the staff at Medacs very helpful, and they were truly accommodating to my needs and preferences. I found belonging to Medacs was a great way to see other areas of Nursing available and it helped me find the next path I wanted to take, having a trial run before I truly committed.

Searching for work overseas can seem overwhelming and there are many things to stress about going through the process alone. As soon as I started working with my recruiter Hayley Newell at Medacs Healthcare, the experience went from overwhelming to one of the smoothest easiest employment search experiences in my life! I cannot thank Hayley Newell and Medacs Healthcare enough for guiding me through this opportunity.

I’m a client of Medacs working with our consultant on placing Remote Area Nurses into our WA Clinics. On a number of occasions, I’ve asked for delivery on 'near impossible' requests – like providing our request on Thursday afternoon for a Monday mobilisation. We’ve never been let down, receiving quality candidates to help us continue our service to some of the most isolated and vulnerable people on the planet. I work with a lot of agencies that promise the world and deliver very little. Medacs is one of our most valuable partners here at NHS.

My experience with Medacs Healthcare has been excellent and rewarding. The Medacs Healthcare team are helpful and attentive in all aspects from professionally liaising on the phone, emailing, and offering multiple opportunities with the different DHBs. They help arrange interviews, negotiating relocation and the salary with the DHB managers. They were flexible and professional, always willing to clear any doubts and providing ideas as well as explanations for applying for a visa.

Our Medacs consultant took on board previous discussions we’ve had had about trying new things and produced a whole new location for us. We've felt supported. We have relationships with other agencies who touch base with us during our contract, but it they don’t have the same personal touch and I think it’s was more of a "ticking the box exercise" rather than a genuine interest into how we were are going.

As a senior UK Psychologist looking for work in NZ during a pandemic, I knew there would likely be a plethora of challenges, so I turned to agencies as I thought their knowledge and both their explicit and implicit investment in finding people work would be helpful. Whilst other agencies were not following up on my emails after an initial response, Hayley from Medacs Healthcare was responsive, attentive and individualised in her approach, finding me interviews to answering and confirming details, which was very reassuring, given the distance and current climate.

Mathew, Clinical Psychologist
Testimonial 5

My experience of Medacs has been a positive one since first applying online. The response and the service genuine and enjoyable. I’ve been a contracting mental health nurse for several years and worked with various agencies. Medacs in both New Zealand and Australia have supported me throughout numerous roles and always ensure I am well supported throughout the recruitment process as well as throughout the working role.
