ED Doctors: get the best jobs at the best rates, first

Creating new experiences in Emergency Medicine

Emergency medicine is one of the most in-demand specialities in Australia and New Zealand, and therefore one of the highest-paid. We’ve recently matched doctors to all kinds of emergency medicine jobs - from hospital-based roles to rural emergency medicine and trauma services.

Earn up to $3000/day

Locum doctors can earn fantastic rates with flexible hours and locations across Australia and NZ. Whether you're saving for a house, investing or simply feel like treating yourself - locuming is a great way to boost your earnings.

Travel costs covered

For most placements, your travel and accommodation costs are covered. This means you get to explore new places with no cost to you!

Get noticed first

As we're preferred suppliers to hospitals and clinics, you'll work with our expert negotiators who'll secure you the best roles and the best rates, often before they even reach the market.

Excellent pay, well looked after, Medrecruit tries to match your career goals and other preferences with each placement.

Are accommodation and travel costs covered?

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.

What length are locum placements?

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.

What paperwork will I need to apply for roles?

Your registration number, a current CV and three references are the essentials of any job application. Other paperwork that's commonly required is:

  • Evidence of vaccinations,
  • Evidence of your degree/fellowship,
  • Annual Practicing Certificates,
  • Indemnity,
  • A certified copy of your passport and/or driver’s licence,
  • Police vetting form.

What you'll need can vary slightly between Australian states and in New Zealand. Some states/locations also ask you complete an online training course (eMedical Courses). We're here to help guide you through the requirements and we'll give you a checklist detailing everything you need.

Do you charge a fee to doctors?

Nope! Our service is free for doctors. We're paid by hospitals and clinics for our services and are preferred suppliers in several states and areas. Because we have a huge network of doctors, we save clinics and hospitals time (and money) by taking the stress out of the hiring and credentialing process.

How will I get paid?

This depends on where you work – the hospital or clinic chooses how a doctor is paid. This will work one of three ways:

  • You’re paid by the hospital/clinic, as an employee
  • You’re paid by the hospital/clinic as a contractor
  • Medrecruit pays you directly

Your recruitment specialist can let you know which method you’ll be paid by for each job you undertake.
