Thumbs up A new hopeful expat

Hello all,

My name is Claira, I am currently living in Kenilworth, Warwickshire. I have just qualified as an allied health professional from the University of Northampton.
I have had a job offer for Wellington’s Capital and Coast District Health Board, as a new graduate occupational therapist over a two year period. I am not married and plan to move out to NZ alone, my brother lives in Mangonui.

Good luck Claira. As has been mentioned previously on this Forum, the NHS isn't a good place to find work at the moment. I hope you enjoy NZ.

Hi Claire & welcome. I also work for Cap & Coast as an RN at Keneperu Hospital in Porirua. We've been here since last June & love it. If I can help with any info just shout.

Heya Alison, yes, I actually had a job offer in Bedfordshire. Before I finished my degree I got informed that the service was restructuring and my job vacancy in no longer available.
So just applying for NZ.
thanks for your communication
