FAQs

  • We will arrange interviews once your registration has been approved and maximum 3-4 months before your planned start date – this gives you enough time to hand in your notice/get organised to leave/apply for your visa etc. this also means that the role is not left open for too long for the employer.

  • We have partnerships with employers all across NZ!

    Once you have your NZ physio registration approved, we can help you choose a location which is a good fit for you – we can also provide you with location guides.

  • We work with employers who can offer a relocation allowance (e.g. upfront amount which can be used for flights/accommodation) for those who are moving on a long-term visa e.g. Sponsorship/Skilled Visa.

  • If you are applying for a sponsorship or skilled visa children/partners can be added to your visa/they can apply for subsequent visas based on your successful application – conditions apply.

    If you are applying for a Working Holiday Visa – these are individual visas.

  • Our suggested levels are just a suggestion! If you do not have this, we are still happy to see what roles we have available for you once you have your Australian registration approved.

    If you are a junior OT, we would highly recommend that you have your registration approved and interview in the Australian winter (May- August) as this is when the most job roles are available.

    If you require a sponsorship visa, you will need 2 years OT experience.

    If you are looking to start work on the Working Holiday Visa/WHV, we would still recommend that you have minimum 1.5 years experience so that you are eligible to change to a sponsorship visa after this (employers like to have a long-term plan for you!)

  • We do not work with the hospitals in Australia as we find that they are not keen on Working Holiday Visas for full-time roles/providing visa sponsorship in popular locations. We do work with the hospitals across NZ though!
  • It is often a requirement to be able to drive for almost all OT roles in Australia and you will usually need to buy your own car.

    The only position that sometimes does not require you to drive, is for paeds/private practice. It is highly preferred if you can drive so that you can complete home/school visits.

  • WHV – We work with employers who are happy for you to start on the Working Holiday Visa, ideally with the plan to then change to a more long-term visa after e.g. Sponsorship or Skilled visa Sponsorship – the sponsorship visa is expensive for employers so the availability of roles/companies who can offer these visas, depend on the job market at the time – currently, OT’S are in demand in Australia and it is possible to gain this offshore
