How MedRecruit can help you with your search for locum or permanent work

I believe doctors deserve a partner to assist them to realise their goals and ambitions. That why our purpose is to help doctors, like Dr Juan, to live exceptional lives."

Dr Juan's Story

Juan is everybody’s favourite Irish Mexican! He is excited about everything; you’ll struggle to find anyone with more zest for life. Juan came to MedRecruit looking for locum placements that would allow him to see New Zealand and pursue his passion for outdoor activities.


Juan came to New Zealand in 2006 looking for a better lifestyle; and he certainly found it. He started with a year in Blenheim then he talked to MedRecruit about getting locum work where he could create the lifestyle of his dreams. Juan has locumed mainly at Southland Hospital. He hardly spent a single weekend in Invercargill though; come Saturday you’ll find him exploring Stuart Island, heli-skiing in the Southern Alps or mountain biking in Queenstown. Juan also used locuming to get around New Zealand to do things he wants; he’s locumed in Wellington so he could get up there for the Sevens and he’s locumed in Nelson so he could visit friends. Juan is an inspiration for other doctors because he shows you what an incredible lifestyle you can use locuming to create
