The hospital, is targeted to open in October 2017 and will be a world class tertiary hospital and it’s aim is to improve the health standard of people living in the Maldives. If you think you may be available to commit to a 2 year contract or longer, please do get in touch with me for further details.

Can I take my family?

Male is the most densely populated city in the world, therefore space as at a premium!  The accommodation provided will be brand new one bedroom apartments, which are approx. a 3 minute walk from the hospital. 

There are no international schools that provide secondary education in the Maldives and the accommodation is only really suitable for 1-2 persons therefore taking your family is not really an option for this opportunity.

Are there any age restrictions for gaining a work permit?

The mandatory retirement age in the Maldives is 65, therefore candidates should be no older than 63 years of age, at time of starting to be able to fulfil the 2 year contract.
