“Locuming gives me lifestyle flexibility - to choose when I want to work, where and when. There are always great opportunities coming up with Wavelength. The biggest problem I face is deciding where my next placement will take me. ”
Dr Damien Mergard
“Wavelength was among the first locum agencies with which I registered when I retired from private practice. I met Amber Derby-Davis at this time and established a wonderful and efficient working relationship. A personal phone call when a suitable job presents is one of her many special attributes. A Wavelength locum never disappoints.”
Dr Oscar Horky
“ My expectations were exceeded when I started my locum role and I was very happy. I would use Wavelength International again; they are my favourite locum agency to use. ”
Dr Michael Sewell
“Nicole has been most helpful in arranging my surgical locums over the last 2 years or so. I find Nicole extremely polite, pleasant, understanding and efficient. She is extremely committed to her work and in obtaining the best outcomes for everyone. She is indeed a great asset to Wavelength.”
Dr David Freedman
“I never made a better move. I received prompt and personal representation backed by the broad array of Wavelength's resources. Felicity found me the right job in the right place, and negotiated the visa, licensing, health insurance, and tax planning minefields. If you think it is better to represent yourself, think again.”
Dr John Maxwell
“The opportunities that Wavelength give you, I would say have been a crucial part of my formation as a surgeon. They provide opportunities that suit every stage of someone's professional career. What I have right now is everything I always wanted when I was training. ”
Dr Manish Gupta
