We’re a leading locum recruitment agency ready to help you

Combine pleasure with work

One of our clients is a New Zealand based doctor who loves to surf. From time to time, he’ll take on locum jobs in hospitals that give him access to Australia’s best surf beaches. It’s a great way for him to enjoy his passion for surfing while also securing additional income on top of his permanent salaried role.

Earn money on your family holiday

Many doctors working with us will combine family holidays with locum work. Have a holiday at the beach, city or in the outback and the kids can enjoy family fun while mum or dad works locally.

Try before you buy

Taking a short term locum role is a great way to test out a potential permanent move. Start with a locum job to see if it’s a good fit before you make a long-term commitment.

More than just money

It’s not just about earning a great salary. You need to work in the right hospital, with the shifts you prefer that allow you to enjoy your life outside of work. Plus, you have the chance to further your career by gaining exposure to other hospitals, so you’re always aware of best practice.
