When it comes to paediatricians, I get to work with the kindest and most nurturing doctors out there. They get to be around children all day and as rewarding as that may be, it can be very stressful, so it is my mission and priority to see the doctor happy and their wellbeing is looked after.

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.
Find better job opportunities, better experiences and a better life here. With Medrecruit, you’ll get ongoing career support and a personalised service.

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

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.
This depends on where you work – the hospital or clinic chooses how a doctor is paid. This will work one of three ways:
Your recruitment specialist can let you know which method you’ll be paid by for each job you undertake.
