The Location

Truly a tropical paradise, the Cayman Islands are alive with vibrant coral reefs, marine life, flora and exotic birds. This natural beauty is accompanied by one of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean, along with a sophisticated international culture, and the benefits of a flourishing financial industry. Part of an underwater mountain range running between Cuba and Belize, the Cayman Islands lie 480 miles south of Miami, 150 miles south of Cuba and 189 miles north-west of Jamaica. With an average year-round temperature range of about 75° F in winter to about 85° F in the summer, the Islands boast some of the finest tropical weather in the world.

When you’re looking to get off the beach, get lost in the luxury of George Town, where colourful traditional Caribbean-style buildings meet high finance corporations, and finish the day off with a sunset cocktail. It is on Grand Cayman that you will find some of the most popular Caribbean activities, attractions, and festivals, including the popular Pirates Week and the colourful and exciting Batabano (the Grand Cayman Carnival). Other popular attractions include the Cayman Islands National Museum, Rum Point, Pedro St. James, Bodden Town, the first capital of the Cayman Islands, Cayman Turtle Farm, and the National’s Trusts Mastic Trail, a 2-mile traditional footpath through unspoiled woodlands.

How Head Medical can help

Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK’s specialist in international medical recruitment and we’ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
