Why Medrecruit

Medrecruit is a medical recruitment agency with a difference. We make a difference in the lives of doctors by changing how medicine works and having a real-world impact on communities across Australia and New Zealand.

Medrecruit has the largest network of jobs in Australia and New Zealand, double the next largest agency. This provides you with the highest chance of getting the right role, and our scale provides you with a hiring advantage as many employers come to us exclusively before going to market.

We make the process as easy as possible. Some agencies have recruiters do everything. However, one person can’t be the best at all functions so we have specialist teams, combined with technology, to make each stage of the process as smooth as humanly possible.

In 2017, Our founder, Dr Sam Hazledine 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, well-being, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard.

Since then Medrecruit has continued to advocate for, educate, and work towards better health and well-being for all healthcare professionals. Medrecruit is built for doctors, by doctors.
