Finding a job is only half the story. Truth is, you can’t work as a doctor in Australia unless you’re fully registered, appropriately indemnified and have billing rights. And you can’t even set foot in the country until you have the right work visa.
The Australian government recently announced it will replace the current subclass 457 visa with a new Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa from March 2018. Ask Wavelength's in-house migration team for advice.
It is unfortunate the word ‘locum’ is often synonymous with the pursuit of fast money. The hourly or per diem rate can look attractive at face value, but in truth, ask a locum why they locum and you’ll often hear a range of reasons before money is even mentioned.
