Dr John Bethell and Claire Ponsford founded Wavelength over 22 years ago. Their vision was to create a medical recruitment company that truly cares about its employees, who in turn would truly care about the service delivered to doctors and healthcare employers.
In 2016, Chris Riley joined Wavelength as CEO bringing 30-years of senior recruitment management experience to help us align our services more closely to our clients and candidates' needs.
As an established doctor-owned and managed, award-winning medical recruitment agency, Wavelength has grown to employ over 90 people with the same ethos and passion as in the early days.
Each year, we help +3,500 doctors to find both locum and permanent jobs across all medical specialties and seniorities, in diverse locations across Australia and New Zealand.
A medical career partner
In early 2019 we acquired executive search firm Ccentric Group to form Australia's first vertically integrated healthcare recruitment organisation. Together, we provide dedicated assistance and guidance to our doctors from the beginning of their career, throughout specialisation and beyond, to help them secure the most sought-after Executive roles in Australia.
A medical recruitment agency with a purpose
We’ve evolved considerably over the years, but what’s remained constant is our emphasis on service. We are focused on going ‘above and beyond’ to match the most qualified Doctor with each and every job.
We are proud that 97% of our doctors would recommend our service to others and that many of the doctors and healthcare employers who partnered with us in the beginning still work with us today.
Working in the medical recruitment sector, we feel a connection to the broader impact of what we do. Our services help many regional and rural communities to find medical care and our medical locum agency services help fill the gaps to ensure continuity of care. This gives a sense of pride and purpose to everyone who works with us.
“We wanted to create a different type of recruitment company, one that truly cared about its employees, who in turn would truly care about the service delivered to doctors and healthcare employers”
