Jobs in New Zealand - Good for Your Health

November 30, -0001

The news that more health professionals are taking up jobs in New Zealand has to be good for Eric King-Turner. Mr King-Turner is one of the thousands of Brits who emigrate to New Zealand every year. Being 102-years-old it must be a comforting thought to know that a huge amount of UK health professionals have taken up jobs in New Zealand. Conversely, the UK health service is seeing an influx of foreign nationals taking up nursing and doctor positions. These migratory trends mean there is now a large community of UK health care professionals who have taken up jobs in New Zealand.

Jobs in New Zealand: A Healthy Pursuit

Mr King-Turner decided to emigrate to New Zealand at the age of 102 not because of the fact so many doctors and nurses were headed Down Under, but because he was fed up of overcrowding in the UK. Research suggests that England is one of the most overcrowded countries in Europe, with the southern part of the country particularly short on space, impacting heavily on house prices and quality of life. As a result, there has been an increase in the number of young professionals looking for jobs in New Zealand, as well as more retirees looking for a more comfortable life.

Adventure: Good for the Heart

New Zealand offers a simpler lifestyle with fantastic weather – qualities Mr King-Turner said he wanted for the remaining years of his life. He told the press: β€œIt's a wonderful new adventure and I would say to anyone that if you want to do something you should do it straight away while you can.” As well as the healthier lifestyle, it seems there won't be a shortage of health care professionals on hand in New Zealand; figures suggest that more foreigners are taking up jobs in New Zealand as it has the highest proportion of foreign-trained doctors in the developed world.

More Foreign Doctors take Jobs in New Zealand

As well as more doctors taking up jobs in New Zealand, the country has the fourth-highest share of foreign-trained nurses who've taken up jobs in New Zealand. A report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development says the country stands out for the high number of health professionals taking jobs in New Zealand.
