Why Move?

Your healthcare skills are valuable and highly sought after:

NOW is the time to move!

The health industry is experiencing a global shortage of skilled workers and the industry has been called “recession proof” by experts around the world.

Despite global shifts in the labour market, skills shortages in the health industry persist. Countries all over the world are struggling to meet the demand for doctors, nurses, surgeons, medical specialists, audiologists, radiographers and more.

As the global financial crisis eases, the older workforce is once again starting to make a move toward retirement, leaving even more medical jobs unfilled.

It is estimated that 57 countries have an absolute shortage of 2.3 million physicians, nurses and midwives (HRH Global Resource Centre). Students are not entering the health education sector fast enough and there is not a country in the world that can meet its demand for skilled health professionals from within its own borders.

Every year hundreds of thousands of British and Irish citizens emigrate to take up work overseas, lured by varying combinations of milder climates, better healthier conditions, better work/life balance, higher pay and safer atmospheres.
