Overseas Applicants – Help & Support

We’re an international team at NWVS in a beautiful part of the UK

We’re close to historic Chester, and the vibrant cities of Liverpool and Manchester and we’re within easy reach of beautiful national parks, forests mountains and the stunning beaches of North Wales. Find out more about the area here: www.visitnorthwest.com

We’re also near major road and rail links and close to international airports (just 20 mins from both Manchester and Liverpool International) but most importantly we understand that moving your life overseas is a big decision.

Relocating your career can also be hugely rewarding and offer amazing opportunities. See what one of our current colleagues has to say here:

We’re always happy to support you throughout your move and be on hand to help with the new challenges, whether it’s opening a bank account or locating the best accommodation or local schools, we’ll do our very best to help you get settled quickly.

We can also offer visa sponsorship for some positions within our clinical teams as well as guidance and support along the way to help you, and your family, make the move.
