Why you should live and work in the UK.

The UK has one of the most revolutionary and progressive healthcare systems in the world. Whether you work for the public sector NHS or a private healthcare provider, you can be sure that you are joining a national workforce that always puts its patients and staff first.

Many of the NHS Trusts with whom we partner offer fantastic training options for their staff, from full inductions and preceptorships, to complete career development programmes, opening up a world of training opportunities in specialist areas and locations.

When you're not at work, the UK has a huge variety of activities and recreational opportunities on offer.

Northern Ireland

  •   The country may be renowned for its work ethic, but it places equal emphasis on the friendliness of the people and the quality of life. There’s an excellent education system, a world-class healthcare service and all manner of very affordable property.

Leisure and Pleasure
  •   You can cross Northern Ireland by car in about two hours – north to south, or east to west – but in between there is a rich variety of scenery, activities, and a host of cultural attractions and leisure opportunities. Enjoy world renowned Irish dancing (A Jig) and the enjoyable camaraderie which accompanies this.

  •   In terms of its beauty, Northern Ireland is stunning, with gentle green rolling hills, majestic cliff faces and ancient grey stone monument artefacts dotted throughout. In fact it lays claim to one of Ireland ‘s most popular natural tourist sites – the Giant‘s Causeway on the spectacular County Antrim coastline.

Cost-competitive Workforce
  •   Northern Ireland’s population of 1.8 million is one of Europe’s youngest and fastest growing. Over 40 per cent are aged 29 or under, and 55 per cent are under the age of 40. There is an enthusiastic and steady stream of smart, talented people for knowledge-based companies seeking a strong workforce.

  •   Property costs in Northern Ireland compare very favourably being one of the most affordable areas to other regions of the UK.

  •   The overall tax burden in Northern Ireland is the lowest of all the major European economies.

Cost of Living
  •   With housing and taxation being at the lowest, as above, the cost of living reflects this, which means you will have more expendible income to save.

  •   Belfast International Airport runs daily scheduled flights to destinations such as New York, London, Paris and Amsterdam. The region boasts four ports – Belfast Harbour, Foyle Port, Warrenpoint Harbour and Larne Harbour. Belfast Harbour is the second busiest port on the island of Ireland.
