I love building relationships with my consultants and matching them in roles that help them to achieve their personal and career goals.
Anaesthetists' highly specialist skills are in demand. With surgical procedures on the rise, the need for anaesthetists across both private and public hospitals is rising too.
For consultant-level anaesthetists in permanent roles, the average salary range is $200,000 to $500,000. Locum anaesthetics consultants are earning up to $3500 a day.
I enjoy working in an environment that is fun, fast, and challenging, which allows me to care for the doctors that I work with and the community and country that I live in.
Demand for anaesthetists in New Zealand is increasing due to a growing and ageing population. Anaesthetics is one of the highest paid specialties in New Zealand with consultants earning between $212,000 - $600,000.

Life as a doctor demands you give everything. Dr Sam Hazledine learned this first as an intern. Years later Medrecruit was his response. Sam successfully lobbied the World Medical Association to amend the Declaration of Geneva (the modern-day Hippocratic Oath) to include:
I will attend to my own health, wellbeing, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard.
Medrecruit continue to advocate for, educate and work towards better health and wellbeing for all doctors.
Yes! Most locum placements offer travel and accommodation arrangements. We can help negotiate this for you. This is usually hospital accommodation or a nice bed and breakfast, and flight or petrol reimbursement.
Locum placements can be as short as a couple of days, though most doctors prefer slightly longer placements (a few weeks or months) so there’s time to get to know the area and the team.
Medrecruit also works with doctors to find permanent roles.
