We have been so lucky to work with Claire, our wonderful midwife who has joined the team at Taranaki DHB, from Ireland.
‘Thank you, Thank You, Thank You…. You have been so wonderful throughout my journey to get to NZ and I truly hope to meet you in person someday. I felt so supported by you practically and emotionally, which was invaluable to me. Know that you are doing a wonderful job that really makes a difference’.
I recently moved as a Midwife from Ireland to fulfil a long-held dream of life in NZ. The paper work of registering with the New Zealand Midwifery Council, finding a job, sorting visas and the complexities of travel during covid times made this a huge task on top of the enormity of moving life and leaving loved ones.
Tonix agency was an invaluable source of professional and personal support, that I wish I had engaged in earlier in my immigration journey. Having waded through a lot of confusing paperwork and internet searching on my own, Tonix were immediately able to streamline everything. They really helped me understand where I truly wanted to be based and what kind of job I was looking for.
I felt particularly supported by them through my interview set up and process, then additional support I needed, like good immigration advice, accommodation etc which Tonix was always able to provide a good referral for. Then when travel became practically complicated with quarantine places and last-minute essential travel documents, again they efficiently sorted, chasing any necessary follow up and relevant paperwork in a way I could not have. Anyone at the agency I had contact with was always easily available despite the time differences whether it was for the wobbly stressed call or to celebrate the successes.
I would thoroughly recommend the service Tonix provides and deeply appreciate their role in getting myself and my husband set up in New Zealand. Thanks to their professional knowledge and commitment to my individual journey I am settling into a job I love, in an area that I am really enjoying.
