Why Irish Nurses are Flocking to Australia

HCL International, the leading international healthcare recruiter, says that it’s getting its best responses from nurses in Ireland looking for jobs in Australia.

Our key aim is to ensure nurses are fully supported through the relocation process and fully understand what it’s like to live and work in Australia

Australia's healthcare sector has barely been touched by the global recession and it’s buoyant economy, al fresco lifestyle and better rates of pay combine to make an attractive proposition for nurses in Ireland.

The country's state-funded healthcare service is similar to the NHS, and it also has a large private healthcare sector in which nurses not only find it easy to adapt to familiar working practices, but can also expect a fantastic climate, with an 'easy way-of-life'.

Therefore it’s not surprising that HCL International, the leading international healthcare recruiter, says that it’s getting its best responses from nurses in Ireland looking for jobs in Australia. The combination of recession and less favourable working conditions in the public sector in Ireland is driving increasing numbers of nurses to seek a new job and a new life in Australia and HCL International is assisting these nurses in reaching the popular antipodean destination.

The recruiter, which supplies nurses of all grades and specialties to leading private and public sector hospitals across Australia, says it has seen a dramatic rise in nurses from the Republic of Ireland seeking advice on how to begin the registration and relocation process, which is why they are targeting Dublin. “Without doubt we are getting our best responses from Ireland” says Josh Collins, who is leading the Irish initiative from down under.

Josh (an Australian himself) is building a pipeline of experienced nurses who once compliant, will be able to work in their chosen state or territory with the help of Healthcare Australia, HCL’s sister company in Australia. “Our key aim is to ensure nurses are fully supported through the relocation process and fully understand what it’s like to live and work in Australia” says Josh who has made it his mission to promote Australia ‘The Lucky Country’ as a key destination for experienced Irish nurses.

To build the nurses pipeline, Josh has tasked his team to organise a series of information events in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham. Dublin, the mostly popular venue, is already looking busy with nurses keen to find out more about relocation, living and working in Australia. http://www.healthcarelocums.com/australia.
