Working as an OT in New Zealand (Auckland)

Hello everyone!

My name is Tessa, I'm 25 years old and I'm half American, and half Maltese.
I just finished my post graduate degree in OT in Cardiff, Wales and I'm super excited to work abroad and learn through my career while living different cultures. I am not sure where to start, but I'm definitely interested in traumatic brain injuries and physical health.  I wish you could tell me a little bit of the reality of OT in New Zealand and how difficult or easy it would be for me to get a job there.
I'm currently registering with the New Zealand board of OT and hoping to start applying to jobs in this upcoming spring 2017.

I hope you can take a little time to write me back and give me some more insight.

Hi Tessa,

Did you have any luck securing a job over in New Zealand?

I've been qualified nearly 6 months and am hoping to find a way to move back to N.Z as an OT (I lived there for a year 10 years ago on a working-holiday).

If you any advice or news of your experience securing a job out there I'd love to hear about it.

I hope you made your dream come true smile

Best wishes
