There is high demand across Australia and New Zealand for Paediatricians. The Australian Paediatric Society comprises over 200 general paediatricians, mostly from rural and regional Australia. Paediatrician is on the skills shortage list in New Zealand, so your chances of employment are high.

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 expect to earn an average salary in the range of NZD$155,000 to NZD$217,000 per year. Locum Paediatricians are earning up to NZD$2,500 a day.

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

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