Professional Connections > International Healthcare Jobs - Where will you go?

Location, location, location!

Professional Connections is working with leading tertiary hospitals around the world, particularly in the Middle East, UK, Australia and Ireland. 

Why work overseas?

One thing that has remained constant for many years is that nursing is a passport!  Highly trained nurses and healthcare professionals are sought-after the world over and there has never been a better time to take advantage.  Whether you're looking to get some serious travelling done before you settle down, a new permanent home, or a pre-retirement adventure, we can steer you in the right direction.

Working abroad is a terrific way to grow in your career and broaden your horizons. Nursing or working as a healthcare professional abroad can provide an opportunity for total immersion in a foreign culture in a way that travelling as a tourist cannot.

Any work experience will make you attractive to employers, but working internationally may be particularly beneficial in developing certain strengths and skills. These include:

Nursing and Healthcare Jobs in the Middle East

(Riyadh, Saudi Arabia)

The Middle East continues to be a great place to work, and our clients there have spent tremendous effort recruiting and retaining Western nurses and other healthcare staff to work at their facilities. For many, it has proven to be a place where they enjoy living and working to its full potential. Opportunities to grow professionally, financial benefits, cultural experiences, new friendships, and the opportunity to work in a truly multicultural environment can be a positive, life-changing experience. This is a place where a Western nurse can make a real, lasting difference.

Another key benefit to working in the Middle East are the amazing opportunities for travel. The Middle East is a perfect jumping off point for destinations that would otherwise require long and expensive flights. If you have a desire exploration beyond the usual tourist traps, the Middle East has much to offer. There are Roman, Greek and Byzantine ruins in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. You will find meteor craters, vast deserts and spectacular Nabatean tombs in Saudi Arabia and a tropical oasis in Oman. If you are interested in scuba diving, it doesn't much better than being close enough to the Red Sea for regular diving trips.  The list goes on.  Living in the Middle East - if only for a short time - will provide you with a wealth of once-in-a-lifetime opportunitites and an experience you will never forget.

(Jeddah, Saudi Arabia)

Of course, it's not all play!  A job in healthcare in the Middle East will often mean that you have more responsibility that you would find in a comparable environment at home.  If you're hungry for a challenge and ready to grow professionally, we are ready to help you achieve it.

We are one of the leading agencies working with hospitals in the Middle East to recruit top talent.  We work with state-of-the-art flagship tertiary referral hospitals.  Our hospitals meet international quality standards and many are JCI and Magnet accredited.

Working in the Middle East, you will enjoy a tax-free salary and lucrative contract benefits such as free accommodation, free flights, free healthcare and a generous leave entitlement of up to 61 days per year.
