MEET THE TEAM
Emma Cook – M.D.
Emma Cook leads the team and is your primary contact within Transition Medical.
Educated in Scotland with a degree from an Edinburgh University, Emma has had a number of senior recruitment roles before setting up the company.
‘I put the business together because I passionately believe in providing a professional and friendly service to help GPs transition to Australia and New Zealand. Having a family of my own, I can understand many of the concerns which GPs express when confronted by the scale of the move. I don’t believe this is a 9-5 job so therefore I want our company to be available when you are.
I’ve been helping professionals find fantastic positions throughout the world for over 10 years and have been specialising in GP recruitment for the past 7 years. It’s very important for me to provide a professional, friendly service.’
