Calling all Antipodean Physiotherapists – the UK needs you!

The outlook for qualified and experienced Physiotherapists traveling from overseas to the United Kingdom is at an all time peak! In particular, Australian and New Zealand allied health professionals are in HUGE demand in the UK, according to our contacts at Healthcare Locums Plc (HCL) – one of the UK’s largest specialist healthcare recruitment providers.

A skills shortage throughout the allied health and medical professions has seen a real surge in the number of physiotherapists, radiographers, dietitians, occupational therapists and podiatrists required in the UK. Confidence in the high educational and professional standards in the Antipodean market ensures employees’ skills are highly sought after and easily transferable within the UK.

HCL UK nursing team manager Elizabeth Kennedy said nurses from Australia and New Zealand are recognised as “potential, fantastic additions to any team.”

“There is always ample opportunity for Australian and New Zealand nurses in the UK to work in both agency and permanent capacities,” she said. “The training, working practices and general knowledge possessed by Australian and New Zealand nurses are seen to be in line with UK workings, and we relish the opportunity to work with such individuals. Skills aside, it’s the ethos and personality possessed by most Australian and New Zealand nurses that are welcomed in the UK. They are able, dedicated and willing to learn… We would love more Australian and New Zealand nurses to take the trip, to experience all the UK has to offer.”

The Biggest 5 Reasons to Move to the UK Before you turn 30!

While we firmly believe you should enjoy opportunities to travel at any age, it’s hard to ignore the benefits of packing up and shifting countries while you’re younger.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best reasons why you should move to the UK before you hit your thirties. There were plenty to choose from, so this list is definitely not inclusive of all the great possible reasons.

1. Economic opportunities: The UK is bursting with opportunities for professionals. There is an overflow of white collar contracting positions and recruiters are shouting out, looking for qualified candidates. Once you get your first contracting position in the UK, it only gets easier to go onwards and upwards from there. Check out also for UK tier 5 youth mobility visa & UK Employment Market.

2. Cultural diversity: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: there is absolutely something for everyone in the UK. London itself is considered one of the greatest cultural hubs in the world. There are so many different things to do that suit a variety of tastes, so it’s virtually impossible to be bored (unless of course, that’s what you’re aiming for).

3. Europe on your doorstep: The UK is so perfectly geographically located that it’s a wonder you haven’t moved over already! Virtually anywhere in Europe is within a couple of hours (or less) by plan, meaning you can easily spend your weekends exploring a different country. And it’s so easy to get cheap, affordable transport between countries from the UK, you won’t have much getting in the way of your travel while you’re over there.

4. More visa options: While there are still ways for some to get UK tier 5 visa to stay in the UK for work, such as Ancestry and Spousal Visas, there’s another option that benefits the younger age bracket. You could be eligible for a Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa and can apply for it if you are between the ages of 17 to 30 (inclusive). The Tier 5 Visa allows you to work for whoever you choose for the entire two year period you are granted the visa, with the freedom to leave the country and get back in however much suits you. This means plenty of travel and opportunities to work!

5. Network around the world: Wouldn’t it be great if no matter where you were in the world, you knew you had friends or work contacts nearby? Moving to the UK and Working with UK as an Aussie or New Zealander opens you up for a world of opportunities. Whether you meet your best mate for life, or get the contact details of someone who has the same entrepreneurial drive as you, the opportunities are limitless. Why would you want to miss out on that?

And there you have it. If you’re a highly skilled professional from Australia or New Zealand who is even slightly considering a move to the UK, speak to our team about hassle free youth mobility scheme tier 5 to find out how we might be able to help you get on your way for UK Visa application.

Skill shortage a dream for white collar professionals

MYOE – How to apply for a UK visa

If you’re taking your skills as a professional contractor overseas to the UK, there are a few things it is necessary to consider and prepare first. Among what is arguably the most important of these is having your UK visa properly sorted before you take off.

As with most things travel-related, applying for this important documentation can be tedious if you’re not across what options there are and what you are eligible for. If you are not fortunate enough to have a British passport, there are still a few UK visa options you can enter the UK on. The most common of these are Ancestry, Spousal or the Tier 5 visas.

The British ancestry Visa is available to Australian or New Zealand citizens who can prove one of their grandparents was born in the UK, which includes Southern Ireland prior to 31 March 1922.

The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme visa is a great option for Australian and New Zealanders aged between 18 and 30. For those who want to work and travel in the UK, this visa can be applied for up until their 31st birthday as long as you have no dependents. The tier 5 visa is the quickest and cheapest visa available that would allow the approved applicant to work in the UK for up to two years.

Rather than sorting through the often tedious visa application process on your own, why not take advantage of the valuable assistance myOE offers? As part of its service, myOE can help facilitate your visa application, doing all the hard work for you.

To apply with the help of myOE, visit the myOE website and click on work visa UK. Once payment has been made, you will be introduced to our Partnered Company where a case worker will be assigned to work through your application, all this coming with a guarantee of approval. The non-refundable British Government fee is only payable at the time of lodgement. With an average turnaround time on this visa of four weeks, this is by far the easiest and quickest way to ensure your application is completed and lodged correctly, to the best of your benefit.
