At Alecto, we recognise that UK GPs who make the move to Australia to work are taking a particularly significant step in their lives. A step which requires a lot of trust! As your GP recruiter to Australia, we understand this. We are in there with you for the lifetime of your job and, if you wish, the lifetime of your work in Australia.
Alecto is an Australian based GP recruitment agency. Our consultants on the ground in Australia understand the local market intimately and source the very best GP jobs across the country. This puts us way ahead of the larger international recruitment agencies that often lack that intimate local knowledge.
Over many years we have established close relationships with the best practices. This is because we always supply the best GPs. They return to us time and again to fulfill their recruitment needs. This bond we have with the practices is invaluable to you as a GP seeking work in Australia. We have strong negotiating power with the practices and are able to keep in touch with you throughout your contract.
Our consultant in the UK, Raelene, is an Australian who returns to Australia frequently to visit. She understands the drivers for UK GPs coming to Australia. She knows the locations and the medical system in Australia. As a bonus, is able to talk with you in your time zone.
Once you have accepted a job and started work on your registration to practice in Australia, we will guide you through the process. We will help you transition to the country. Also we will keep in touch with you as you begin work and settle into life in Australia.
Apart from keeping in touch with you through the practice, Alecto personnel routinely organise social and networking events for the GPs they have placed in jobs. These events are specifically for the purposes of keeping in contact with you informally outside of your workplace, ascertaining any issues you may have in settling into your work and location, and to introduce you to fellow sojourners to share experiences. These events are hugely successful! Read our blog, Moving to Australia on your own…?
It is this that truly sets us apart. We look after you beyond the start of your job. We are in there with you for the lifetime of your job, and if you wish, for the lifetime of your work in Australia!
