“I have nothing but good things to say about HCA! The team has made my landing in Australia the most pleasant experience.

I have made new friends from our staff nights out, I had a job and was set up within the first two weeks of arriving. My friends and I are constantly referring nurses to HCA, even on nights out!

When I was looking for places to live in Melbourne, I got an email with all the different places that were good to live, when I didn't know how to get to work or how to choose between different shifts I always got help over the phone.

Duncan rang me the day after I had my first shift and asked how I got on. He was great and really looked after us as soon we arrived in Melbourne.”



“I would recommend contacting HCA as soon as you decide you want to nurse in Australia. I got free, friendly, impartial advice about my visa, AHPRA registration and everything.

Even when I arrived in Australia I felt no pressure to join HCA, however what they offer as a nursing agency really suited my needs and it's also opened up some great professional opportunities in Australia.”

Grant, Mental Health Nurse, UK


“HCA have been great in making my move to Australia an easier transition in both work and normal life.

Ruby from the London office was a huge help to myself, always on the other end of the phone, answering my questions and queries!

And the team here have been great since I have arrived in Oz. When I had my orientation interview at the office in Perth (WA), the girls were just so friendly, keeping up the great work morale I had already received via emails!

So far my experience with HCA has been 10/10 and I have recommended them as a nursing agency to plenty of my friends who are now hoping to come to Australia to work as well!”



"Before the move, it was really helpful having the office in London and speaking to someone in the same time zone. Since being here, I have really enjoyed the experience, it’s different to previous roles and it’s nice to have the flexibility of working when I want to work."

Toby Clark, Mental Health Nurse, UK
