Some of our many happy clients...

Read the experiences from some of our wonderful RNs who have made the move to NZ from Singapore….

We’re lucky to call NZ home!

Grace and Friends

Grace, Jennifer, Holly, Rachel and Angela all enjoy the open spaces of NZ thanks to support from the Tonix team.

I am very grateful and thankful beyond words!

Michelle

One of the qualities Tonix has that really amazed me is they ensured all my needs were catered to and Kate continually checked in on me.

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

Grace

I am writing this testimony to express my utmost gratitude and appreciation for the exceptional service provided by Tonix NZ. It was such a pleasure to work with Kate A, with her outstanding dedication and professionalism, in helping me relocate from Singapore to New Zealand.

“Kate was nothing short of amazing…”

Dani

I was introduced to Tonix Health Recruitment at the early stages of my emigration to NZ. Throughout the journey, Kate A, who was my agent, was nothing short of amazing. She was there every step of the way guiding me through the processes, which were tedious at times.  

“Living the Kiwi Dream in Aotearoa!”

Two amazing nurses

We got another amazing Tonix testimonial from two Obstetric Nurses placed at Invercargill Hospital in June of this year. It makes us so happy to see feedback like this!

New Zealand voted Best for Work Life Balance

Aotearoa, New Zealand beat out 59 other countries to be crowned the best in the world for work-life balance, a concept that is seeing greater scrutiny post-pandemic with the introduction of hybrid work models and four-day weeks.

In a new study from the international employment and hiring company Remote, New Zealand ranked first in the top 10 nations for work-life, or life-work, balance: a term describing a healthy relationship between a career and personal life.
