Dr John Bethell and Claire Ponsford founded Wavelength over 20 years ago. Their vision was to create a different type of medical recruitment agency, one that truly cared about its employees, who in turn would truly care about the service delivered to candidates and clients.
From humble beginnings, Wavelength has grown to become the largest medical recruitment agency in Australia, employing over 70 people and making over 2,000 placements, for both permanent and locum jobs, a year.
During this time we’ve evolved considerably, but what’s remained constant is our emphasis on service. We are focused on going ‘above and beyond’ in everything we do. Our emphasis is on matching the right person for the job, not just any job.
We make sure we determine and meet the exact requirements of both our doctors and healthcare employers.
We are proud that 97% of our doctors would recommend our service to others and many of the doctors and healthcare employers who partnered with us in the beginning still work with us today.
Central to achieving this is having recruiters who are experienced and experts in their field. We are known in the industry for recruiting the ‘best’ consultants, over a third of our recruiters have been with us for over five years.
Working in the healthcare sector the whole Wavelength team feels a connection to the broader impact of what we do. Without our services many regional and rural communities would be without adequate medical care, this gives a sense of pride and purpose to everyone that works with us.
