  • "I met JobsAgency FM through social networks, and their attentive response encouraged me to move forward. They accompanied and advised me throughout the registration process in Ireland, and in a few months I obtained my NMBI PIN. Nowadays, I am working in an Irish public hospital: the induction process is programmed seriously, facilitating me the linguistic immersion and in the hospital routine.
