"I am grateful that I was able to work with Helen Ziegler and Associates in my move here, because there are so many unknowns when you are transitioning to another country. The people Helen Ziegler were always courteous and helpful despite my many questions. They were always prompt to get back with me if they didn't have an immediate answer. Because they are one of the major placement agencies for the Middle East, they know how to make the transition as seamless as possible. This is not an EASY thing to do, but this experience has broadened me and given me an understanding and love for a culture totally different than my own. The paperwork can appear burdensome but --trust me--the recruiters know what you need. Be patient, sit tight and do things as quickly as you can on your end to complete medical screenings etc. But let your recruiter help you with timing. If you do things before the recruiter has asked you, you may just have to repeat because much of the paperwork has timing factor as well. — Linda, RN, Abu Dhabi, UAE
"I can't thank you and the team enough on how organized you have made this process. Especially with all the packages with the appropriate papers in each. It has made it very easy to hand in all the information!" — Patricia, Registered Nurse, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
"Everything is coming along quite nicely with minor hiccups, which is to be expected being in a completely new country for the first time.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for doing an amazing job with a tedious process and making it easy for me to handle things here, it is certainly a big help settling in.
"I have known the professionals at HZA since 1987 and have a high regard for their skills and abilities. The staff are thoroughly trained and educated to understand the challenges met by both healthcare professionals seeking a placement and the organization that is employing them. HZA strives to find the perfect employee/employer fit, resulting in an experience that is positive for both parties. HZA recruitment specialists work closely with the organization throughout the recruitment process. They carefully review the needs of the organization and compile a database of suitable candidates. They arrange and schedule preliminary interviews and provide clear concise resumes and data sheets on applicants submitted for consideration. From the candidate's viewpoint, they help to remove the stress of relocating by providing detailed information on the workplace, the working culture, the cost of living, leisure activities and community profiles. Again all this research helps to ensure that there is a match between employers and employees resulting in a high rate of positive probationary evaluations.
"As a senior executive at several large hospitals, I have relied on the experience of HZA specialists to provide skilled staff for direct care, education and management positions. Many leaders within the management team of the hospitals that I have worked have been recruits of HZA. Our most recent hospital development project, Shaikh Khalifa Medical Centre would not have reached its commissioning and accreditation goals without the active involvement of HZA in recruiting a wide variety and large number of expert staff for the project." — Veronica Nickerson RN, BScN, MEd
"I am very happy with the assistance I received from Helen Ziegler & Associates (HZA). It was apparent upon my arrival in Riyadh, which agency the new employees were processed through, as the group from HZA had the most information and all paper work in order. None of us from HZA arrived in Saudi without proper documentation - i.e., a work visa! I am especially grateful that I was sent to the hospital appropriate to my personality. Thanks to everyone at HZA!" — Janet, Radiation Therapist, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

"What impressed me most about my recruitment experience with [HZA] was that you made me feel like a friend. It did not feel like a business experience. Everything that had to be done seemed to get done in a relaxed way. It made everything so much easier. I know HZA is a serious business but the recruitment experience for me was stress free with really nice people who always returned telephone calls and never became tired of the many, many questions." — Susan, Transcriptionist, Saudi Arabia

I want to THANK YOU for all the work & preparation that was put into getting me to Saudi Arabia. I was 100% prepared as far as all the forms & paperwork needed. There were numerous people from other recruiting agencies who were not well prepared & who did not have the proper paperwork. Their orientation was made so much more difficult & frustrating. — TZ, Registered Nurse, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
