Are you a qualified allied health professional looking to undertake a once in a lifetime opportunity? Ever thought about moving from Australia to the UK to experience a different way of life and have the perfect base to travel Europe? If so, relocating to the UK and working as an occupational therapist, physiotherapist or speech pathologist could be for you.

Our UK and Sydney-based teams have extensive knowledge and experience in helping secure short-term locum, contract and permanent jobs for allied health professionals across the UK. Whether you want to work for the NHS or would prefer a private setting, we have jobs in major cities, busy seaside towns and even quaint countryside villages – meaning there really is something for everyone. Making the move to the UK can seem daunting, but that’s why our team are on-hand to offer advice and support and to help ensure the relocation process runs smoothly. Don’t forget we’re here to support you from pre-departure, on arrival and throughout the entirety of your placement in the UK.
