Doctors first, then jobs. That's our difference.

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 continues to advocate for, educate, and work towards better health and wellbeing for all doctors.

The Paediatrics job market in Australia and New Zealand

There is a high demand for Paediatricians across Australia and New Zealand. The Australian Paediatric Society comprises over 200 general paediatricians, mostly from rural and regional Australia.

According to the Australian Taxation Office, a Paediatrician's annual salary can range between AUD $200,000 to AUD $350,000. Locum Paediatricians are earning up to AUD $3,500 a day.

In New Zealand, Paediatricians can earn an average salary of NZD $155,000 to NZD $217,000 per year. Locum Paediatricians are earning up to NZD $2,500 a day. A Paediatrician is on the skills shortage list in New Zealand, so your chances of employment are high.

However, it is important to note that both these salary scales depend on various factors, such as years of experience, geographical location, and the type of healthcare facility you work in.
