FAQs
Will working as a locum affect my tax status?

Yes, working as a locum means you are essentially a contractor. Your tax structure will be different. In Australia, you will need to provide an Australian Business Number. In New Zealand, you may need to register for GST

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.

How does the process work for doctors?

When you sign up with Medrecruit, we’ll start by checking your credentials and making sure you’re ‘job ready’ with all the right paperwork in place. You’ll receive regular updates of jobs which match your search terms, and your personal Solutions Specialist will be in touch if they see a job they think you’ll be interested in.

When you apply for a job, Medrecruit will present your credentials, experience and attributes to the relevant contact. This is why it’s important to only sign up with one agency – hiring staff get frustrated by multiple presentations from the same doctor.

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 other locations in Australia do you cover?

We have locum and permanent positions all over Australia and New Zealand, and every day we help doctors find the lifestyles or career goals they have been seeking. You can check out some of our other location pages here: Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania , New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, Northern Territory, and New Zealand. If you are interested in finding a new locum or permanent position in one of these regions the best thing to do is get in touch with our team and let them know which region you are looking to work in.
