Radiography job Information for UK and Ireland Radiographers
In Australia, as in the UK, there are high standards in medical imaging with quality equipment and fantastic working conditions. Australia is known for its relaxed outdoor lifestyle within a booming modern community so it is no wonder Australia has become the destination of choice for UK radiographers after a working holiday, short term employment, or to permanently migrate.
At present there is a shortage of qualified radiographers in Australia, therefore the possiblities for radiographers in finding rewarding work here are very good. At Healthsite Recruitment we anticipate the job situation will stay like this for some time. Despite this finding employment with the conditions, location and wages you want can be quite a task.
With some small differences, radiography in Australia is very similar technically to that in the UK and Ireland, and most people have little trouble getting into the swing of things. This makes Australia a popular choice among British and Irish radiographers searching for a job abroad.
A diverse range of employment options available such as short-term locum work for travellers with Working Holiday Maker visas, longer contract positions and permanent positions. Each scenario warrants a different visa and accreditation process prior to working in Australia. Radiographers must obtain accreditation from the Australian Institute of Radiography before working in Australia. This type of formal recognition is required by registration and licensing boards in most states and is a prerequisite for most visas.
Both processes are generally formalities for radiographers with UK qualifications, however there are always some bureaucratic issues to deal with prior to coming to work in Australia.
