I can’t deny it. I’m tickled pink to find out that Wavelength International has been listed amongst the BRW top 50 “Great Place to Work” list for the fourth consecutive year. We are particularly pleased because this is now the only award we apply for.
We are very excited at Wavelength to publish the 2012 Health Workforce Report which surveyed over 200 healthcare employers about the challenges they face and their expectations for the next 6 months. Richard Taylor, Client Relationship Manager who led the study, would like to fill you in on the key ...

I liked this post by blogger Dr Goodhook, providing advice to doctors on “How to work with a physician recruiter”. I liked it because a doctor, not a recruiter, wrote it. He clearly has the measure of the way recruiters work (good and bad) and has suggested some handy tips on how doctors can get the best out of ...
I have noticed over the years that it is much easier to convince hospitals to engage with recruiters on a transactional basis, taking resumes on the fly, rather than outsourcing a complete recruitment assignment to one agency. Most other industry sectors now accept the benefits of ...
I started my career as a doctor but have spent the past 20 years in recruitment, which gives me a unique perspective on how these two worlds interface. One of the things I find most striking is the extent to which they don’t, or possibly won't, mix.
