How Old is too Old?

At the recent BDIA Dental Showcase in London, we were amazed at how many experienced dentists wondered by the stand commenting “I’m to old to go to Australia now”. Not so!

Sponsored Visas for Dentists Working in Sydney, Australia

Dentist Jobs in Sydney Australia

Since 2007 Blue Sky People – along with our Australian based partners – have placed dozens of UK qualified dentists with a range of clients throughout  Australia. Over the years, the number of Australian healthcare graduates- including dentists – has not kept pace with demand and even with several new dental schools now producing new graduates, the demand for skilled dentists remains, despite dentistry being removed from the visa skills list. Historically we have focused our efforts on placing dentists with practices throughout coastal Queensland and New South Wales with the regional population growth resulting in increasing demand for dentistry provision – and great lifestyle benefits. Opportunities for UK qualified dentists to secure work and associated visa sponsorship in the Melbourne and Sydney have been minimal with dentists only really being able to compete for jobs in city locations once they have secured permanent residency status and gained further clinical experience in Australia. This could be about to change though. Working closely with one of our existing clients, Blue Sky People can now offer a number of terrific opportunities in modern, high tech practices throughout the Sydney catchment. We are looking to recruit experienced UK qualified dentists with excellent clinical and interpersonal skills for a number of new openings throughout the Sydney area. Ideal candidates would be interested in re-locating in late 2017 or early 2018 with a view to a minimum 2 year commitment and ideally with the long term ambition to apply for permanent residency status. Our client is looking for clinicians who are confident in their ability to deliver high quality general dentistry but who are keen to continue to improve their clinical skills. In the 10 years that we have be working with UK qualified dentists relocating to Australia – we have rarely been able to offer 457 sponsorship opportunities in the Sydney area. This really is a unique opportunity for dentists who are keen to consider a professional career in one of the most sought after city locations in the world. The team from Blue Sky People will be on stand at the Dentistry Show on 12th and 13th May 2017 as well as at the BDA Conference and Exhibition on 25th – 27th May. Come and see us to find out more about this great opportunity.
