Some of what our clients have said...

We know what we do, but it's our clients that can explain what that means and the impact it makes on them!

Right from the get go I felt supported!

Chrissy

And it made the whole journey a lot less scary! I am so extremely grateful to have come across Tonix and to have had Kate A as my agent through the process of encouraging my dream to be a midwife in NZ.

Jim and Clare returning to Live!

Jim and Claire

Way back in 2007, Tonix placed Jim and Claire, healthcare workers from the UK, into employment in Wellington. Jim worked as an ODP at Wellington Hospital and Claire nursed at Wakefield Hospital. They returned to the UK, but are now looking to return...

From Birmingham to Hamilton!

Cecile, Francis and Chiara

Tonix met with Cecile in London on a couple of occasions over the past five years, as we planned and supported her recruitment to New Zealand with her husband Francis and their daughter Chiara.
Cecile and Francis are both senior theatre practitioners who have worked in the operating theatres at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital based in Birmingham.

Feature Region
Wellington

Located at the southern end of our North Island Wellington is pretty much physically in the centre of our country. It’s a beautiful city perched around the harbour and hills, and is a diverse mix of cultures, business and government agencies.

With a great metro system, you can get around Wellington with ease, its home to several large hospitals and private clinics, and tertiary institutions.

Downtown is vibrant, with a bustling active waterfront, along with dining, cafes and shopping options for everyone.

New Zealand voted Most Beautiful Country in the World : Rough Guide 2024!

From villages and valleys to castles and cliffs, the planet is chock-full of beautiful places – but which country can lay claim to being the most gorgeous on the planet?

Rough Guides, the online trip-planning company, asked its readers to vote on where they thought were the world’s most beautiful countries, and the results are in.

Claiming the number one spot is, New Zealand! The island nation is loved particularly for ‘the contrast in scenery and beauty to be found in the people and culture’, according to Rough Guide’s readers.

We made Marion’s ultimate dream come true and we would like to do the same for others. 

I met Marion at the Carlton Hotel, when she attended our interviews in Singapore two years ago. She is now working in a private surgical hospital in Auckland. Her ultimate goal was to be reunited with her 21 year old son, who has been living in the Philippines and bring him to NZ.  They are now family together in Auckland, Aotearoa. Here’s a message from her

“Good morning Ms Kate, how are you doing? I am so grateful to have known you since the start of my application to work here in New Zealand. Now, my son Wiliane Kent is already here in Auckland with me. May I take this opportunity to say a million thanks for all your help. I hope you can help more nurses in the future. Thank you, thank you. God bless” 😘

Some great opportunities here!

Here are some jobs that are available now to get a feel for the opportunities in Aotearoa. We have jobs available now, and we will have jobs when you are ready to come.
