    Physiotherapy Assistant in New Zealand

    We recommend the Physio Shop - www.physioshop.co.uk
    I am physiotherapist from Brazil and I am currently going through the New Zealand registration process. While I am waiting for the process I would like to Work in the New Zealand Health System. Could anyone tell me if it is possible for foreign trained physios to work as a physiotherapy assistant in New Zealand?
    If yes, are there any jobs in that field (I have the impression that most employers want some qualification in New Zealand even for Physiotherapy Assistants)?

    Any information will be greatly appreciated

    Hi,
    Physio Assistant's usually don't need any qualification at all.
    There are several job search engines for NZ. Can easily find them on Google.
    Do you have a work visum?

    Cheers,
    Fyzzio

    Hi Marianas,

    I believe that would be better options such as Pilates Instructor or Massage Therapist.

    How is your process? I'm a brazilian physio as well and i will start my process soon.

    Hi Mariana!
    I was wondering about your registration process. Did you get it?
    If yes, could you please give me some advises?
    I'm also a physio from Brazil and I'm about to start the registration to have premission to work in New Zealand.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Nz Brazil,

    How about your process? Did you get your registration?

    I already asked Mariana and will ask the same for you: Please, let me know if you can give me any advise about the process?

    Thank you!
    Best regards

    Hi, everyone! I'm a physiotherapist in Brazil as well and I'm looking for more informations and real experiences in registration process with a brazilian curriculum. My goal is to move to new Zealand too. I've talked with an immigrant advisor but I want to do it with a brazilian physio as well. Could I join your talk, please? I will wait for your answer anxiously.
    Thank you so much!
