“It was their genuine interest in my success and well-being…”

From the moment I decided to make this life-changing move, she guided me through the entire process with expertise and care, demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of the intricacies involved in international relocations and went above and beyond to ensure a smooth transition for me.

Tonix has a remarkable ability to understand their clients’ needs and provide tailored solutions. They carefully assessed my circumstances, taking into account my personal preferences, professional aspirations, and legal requirements.  This level of attention to detail ensured that the opportunities presented to me matched my skills, qualifications, and the lifestyle I was seeking in New Zealand.

 Throughout the process, Tonix maintained clear and prompt communication, keeping me informed about potential job prospects, interview schedules, and necessary documentation. Their professionalism and efficiency greatly reduced the stress and uncertainty typically associated with relocating to a new country.

One of the qualities that truly set apart is their genuine interest in my success and well-being.  It was evident that they genuinely cared about finding the right fit for me professionally and personally. Their commitment to ensuring my satisfaction and happiness throughout the process was commendable.

I am now together with my family and co- nurses settled and thriving in New Zealand, thanks to the invaluable assistance of Kate A. Without her expertise and support, this transition would have been significantly more challenging.

Thank you once again to Kate for your exceptional service. I will forever be grateful for the positive impact you have had on my life.
