YOU LOVE BLUE SKIES AND THE COMBINATION OF COSMOPOLITAN EATERIES AND RIVERSIDE VIEWS,
with the mountains just a short drive away. Close to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, you’re already planning your cheeky weekends away to take advantage of the year-round holiday vibe.
WHY CHOOSE BRISBANE?
Brisbane (or Brisvegas as the Aussies call it) is ever changing. It’s growing as a business hub and that means there are loads of opportunities for work. Weather is also warm for most of the year – there isn’t too much variation between seasons and it’s usually lovely and sunny. Brisbane is also the halfway mark along the backpacker trail – spend some time working here in a laidback, vibrant environment before heading up to Cairns or down to Sydney or Melbourne.
On the downside, Brisbane is not as well known for its art and theatre scene as other cities – if you’re super keen for full cultural emersion, it might not be for you. Likewise if you’re put off by humidity, it might take you a moment to adjust.
With more than 50 private and public hospitals servicing Brisbane and its surrounding suburbs, the opportunities are there for the taking. As Australia’s third largest city, there are plenty of opportunities to specialise, be it in paediatrics, cancer treatment, fertility and much more. Our team can help you decide where to get started.
Our nurses tell us that it’s more relaxing working in Australia. The hours are kinder with 8 hour shifts being the norm, lower staff to patient ratios (1:4-6) and better pay.
If you choose Brisbane as your starting point for Australia, you’ll be able to post some of these gems to your Instagram and make your friends and family back home jealous (who knows, this might get them planning a holiday to come and visit you sooner than you think).
