Would just like to take this time to say thank you for all that you have done for me throughout this process of application and transition from Malaysia to New Zealand. Really appreciate all that you have done.  It definitely made the process a lot easier. Currently, I have started work and doing well with all these new changes.  A very big thank you again.

I came across Antipodean Medical Recruitment, absolutely by chance and man... have I been lucky!! 

I have travelled around the world and worked with several agencies. Most are extremely professional and helpful, but what makes Kerrie (and Antipodean) stand apart is the personal touch that she brings to her job. I was not dealing with just another agent, but with a person, whom over a period of time I dare say, I began to consider a friend, whose advice and guidance I depended upon. 

I would absolutely recommend Kerrie. She brings to the table, not just professionalism, but a personal touch. She makes an effort to get to know you and your family and goes the extra mile to anticipate all preparations required to ensure a smooth transition and settlement. 

Ann, Jayden and myself totally enjoyed our year in New Zealand. Thank you ever so much Kerrie... You are the best..

Kerrie manages to find the placements and locum shifts that suit me each time, often when other locum companies have been unsuccessful.

Kerrie was absolutely outstanding in helping me realise my dream and move to Australia as a GP. Personalised service with assistance at every step of the way helped made a complex process simple. Highly recommended.

I gladly give Antipodean Medical Recruitment a 5 star feedback for excellence.  Kerrie Dudley has made every step in my journey to move from the UK to Australia and start work as a GP an easy smooth process. She anticipated most administrative issues and dealt efficiently with any others that came up along the way.  Kerrie was a pleasure dealing with from the fist e-mail/telephone call all the way through. She knows her stuff and more importantly she has a feel for people, placing me in a practice ideally suited for my needs and expectations.  I could not have asked for anything more from this recruitment company. Antipodean is a benchmark for other recruitment companies, providing a professional personal service.  I have already recommended Antipodean to some of my colleagues and will continue doing so.

I wish to take this opportunity to commend Kerrie Dudley´s professionalism in handling our family´s move to NZ. We have only positive things to say about Kerry. She has been honest in everything she has done, extremely helpful and committed all the way up to or arrival in NZ, and without her we would probably not be here right now.  When we were hit by the jitters she calmed us down, when we needed help with Immigration in London she was very supportive. We do intend to recommend her to anywhere in Madrid who might be thinking of moving abroad as her professional ability and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon herself.

I can 100% recommend the service of Kerrie.  She offered me many job opportunities in Nz, and helped me to choose the right one.  I received answers to all my questions (and there were many!) per mail within 10 hours.  We stayed in contact very regularly, also via Skype.  I received all the support I and my family needed for the big move from Europe to NZ.  Kerrie even advised me for the schooling of my kids, and the job opportunities for my husband.  I would definitely chooseher agency service again.

I have worked with Kerrie Dudley for about 18 months now. From the first time we spoke she was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about medical recruitment. She successfully placed me in a job at a Hospital where I stayed for a year. She also managed to get me other locum work in Hospital and General Practice. Kerrie has been in invaluable resource to me. When we discuss remote locations, she goes out of her way to investigate what the towns have to offer so that my experience would be more enjoyable. She was also very useful in making helpful suggestions with my English language test and referred me to a migration agent with queries I had regarding residency. In summary, Kerrie has been an invaluable resource to me, primarily helping me with employment but also contributing to ensuring my experiences in Australia have been very fulfilling. I have since gone to recommend her to friends looking for employment as I have all confidence in her.

This confirms that Kerrie Dudley of Antipodean Medical Recruitment has been my locum agent since November 2010.  I am a specialist general physician/internist and currently have specialist registration in South Africa and the United Kingdom.  I am currently doing a 7 month locum in New Zealand where I have vocational registration (obtained with Kerrie’s help, guidance and support).  In addition to working in South Africa, my home country and also my country of training, I have worked in the Shetland Islands, the Middle East (Bahrain), Cyprus (on several occasions) and Gibraltar (also on several occasions), England and Northern Ireland.  Kerrie’s services have included help with immigration formalities and likewise with regard to the best way to go about obtaining medical registration in New Zealand, my situation being somewhat unique with regard to the latter.  Her knowledge of local conditions where I have worked in New Zealand, in advance of my starting work there, has been excellent.  She has been an excellent intermediary during negotiations with potential employees and has often relieved me of having to attend to details personally. Her relationships with immigration authorities and medical registration authorities are again excellent.  Throughout the time period that she has been my agent, she has been incredibly supportive of both me and my family, and has made regular contact before, during and after my periods of employment.  She has even visited me in person during this time!  In short, my experience of her as an agent has been superb.  I recommend her unreservedly.

It is with pleasure that I write a recommendation for Kerrie Dudley who assisted me in obtaining a consultant Paediatric post in New Zealand. She was so helpful and was able to navigate me through all the loops in a complicated application process for visa and registration. I was grateful for her experience and professionalism and have recommended her services to my colleagues. I have no hesitation in supporting her.

My experience with Antipodean Medical Recruitment has been outstanding. From the initial contact, through to helping with the entire application process, I could not have asked for a better agency to work with. Every step of the process was explained in detail, and nothing was ever too much trouble. I asked many questions and each was answered in detail expertly. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Antipodean Medical Recruitment, and would gladly work with them again.

I am writing to express my appreciation for what Antipodean has done to support me. Mrs. Kerrie Dudley was among very few people who completely devoted her time to give me full support in the process of finding job and settling down in Australia. She patiently responded to all my queries and helped me through every step. I could not expect any more from her as I have received her full support. I will definitely recommend her agency to my other colleagues and friends as I am very satisfied with the services. Kerrie I cannot thank you enough.

I have no hesitation in recommending Antipodean Recruitment very highly. All my dealings were with Kerrie Dudley who I found to be efficient, friendly and helpful. Her communication is excellent, always responding to emails promptly and keeping me up to date with my application process. Her knowledge was incredibly helpful, and she guided me through the job and visa applications smoothly. She also helped me arrange accommodation for my arrival in New Zealand and recommended transport options. Overall I found Antipodean Recruitment a great agency and would gladly use their services again in the future.

I want to thank you personally for the services you have provided me to start working as a General Practitioner in Melbourne.  I am extremely impressed with your knowledge of the Australian health care system.  My family and I are grateful to you for all your assistance.

I am a paediatrician that has recently moved from South Africa to New Zealand with my husband and 2 children. Kerrie Dudley has, in a very professional way, made our move smooth and easier by initially finding me a job that suited my requirements, liasing with my employer at all times, helping with the work permit application and immigration process, giving advice on every possible aspect of life in New Zealand, making sure that all of our needs were met (including accommodation and transport on arrival) and even providing us with a welcome gift and food!  She was always available to answer questions, reassure us on every aspect of our move and help us sort out whatever needed to be done. She is friendly and efficient and I am very grateful for what she has done for us as well as extremely pleased to have used her medical recruitment agency. I recommend Antipodean Medical unreservedly to any doctor who intends working in New Zealand.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Antipodean for your recruiting needs. Kerrie Dudley’s open communication skills, makes her approachable on all levels. Travelling to a foreign country for work can take a task team to organize. Kerrie is a one woman task team. She is well travelled herself personally that only enhances her knowledge of the immigration policies and explains why her connections are so vast.  Kerrie took a pragmatic approach towards finding me the right match for my training. She asked questions concerning what I wanted from a training hospital and what I needed from the city in which I was to live, and that perfect match was Timaru. She was instrumental in my transition to New Zealand from the States. The paperwork can be daunting to say the least and with her assistance I flew through it all. In one afternoon, my visa was organized, my medical license was procured, and I was happily moved to New Zealand.  I highly recommend Kerrie Dudley and Antipodean for all your medical recruiting needs.

Kerrie from Antipodean Medical was absolutely fantastic in arranging a medical registrar job for me here in beautiful Tauranga. We had been involved with a few recruitment agencies but Antipodean was by far the most impressive and did the most work for my wife and I, with more job offers and more choice than with other agencies.  Despite travelling through China and Japan I was able to keep in contact through email and phone to keep abreast of job offers and opportunities. We had a good choice of possible jobs and locations. Kerrie was invaluable when it came to discussion of the pros and cons of particular locations, with good knowledge of the amenities and attractions of each location. She also arranged for a phone interview which I took whilst in a hotel in China! As I was travelling with my wife, Kerrie ensured that we had accommodation arranged prior to our arrival and even had a phone sim card sent to us! She was readily available for all questions and queries, and always replied promptly to all emails.  Thank you Kerrie for organising everything so efficiently, our NZ experience has been, and continues to be, everything we hoped for. I highly recommend Antipodean Medical to anyone considering working in NZ or Australia. Sincerely, Darragh.

I was talking to the other doctors who started with me in August, and I definitely won when it came to agencies. No other agencies met them at the airport, provided accommodation for the interview or food. You really went beyond what was expected.

AMR has been very informative. I really appreciate how Kerrie extended her duty by giving essential technical advice to help my partner settle down in New Zealand as well.

Working with an agency that has been accredited, I know I am in good hands. You have proven this with my recent placement - I don't know any other agencies that can top it. Thanks again.

I cannot believe other agencies don't offer the same service. Kerrie, you answered our questions promptly and helped place both of us in the same hospital. We are enjoying the sunshine and earning the Australian dollar. Off for a surf now. Will be in touch for more work once this locum finishes.

I was applying over the internet for more than five months to every medical job posted, trying to get a job in Australia... but it wasn’t until I contacted Antipodean Medical Recruitment that I got it.  They gave me support right away; two days after I sent them my CV, I was asked to forward all my documents to a hospital in Australia. I received a job offer later and Antipodean Medical Recruitment helped me with all the medical board registration, visa requirements and paperwork. Even after arriving in Australia, they were in constant contact for support and follow up.  Here I am in beautiful Queensland, enjoying my work and new environment! A lot of work at the hospital, a lot of friendly people everywhere in this wonderful country. Thanks again for all your help!

Thanks for your support, I have used a lot of different agencies with recruitment and placement of medical staff and found that the service you provided to be one of the best I have used. I appreciated the regular updates, support you provided to the doctor, the little things like the food on arrival, continuing to look after the doctor once she had arrived and sticking with it when there were significant delays. I would definitely use your services again and recommend to others.

I found working with AMR a very positive experience. You were always easy to get hold of and I knew that any queries I had would be followed up with the client and a response given to me in a timely manner. You were also very patient during what was a difficult time and appreciated that I couldn’t give you answers as soon as you wanted them and so left me alone until I was able to.
