The Registration arm of Challis Recruitment is responsible for assessing eligibility of candidates for registration in order to work as a medical practitioner in Australia or New Zealand and then guiding them through the process of gaining this registration.
The various pathways and processes to gain registration in Australia and New Zealand can be quite complex involving at least two separate organisations. The Registration section will guide candidates through each step of the process ensuring that all appropriate criteria and requirements have been met so that registration can be granted in a timely manner. The section will assess the documentation from the candidate and lodge applications with the various organizations once all documents are in order. The section will liaise with these organizations and the prospective employer to ensure that the application is progressing accordingly.
