Working in Australia

Are you ready for your next adventure?

Working as a medical professional in Australia offers a wide range of lifestyle and career benefits. In addition to the diverse opportunities and locations, from cosmopolitan cities and amazing coastal towns, to regional and remote outback communities, a move to Australia also offers:

  • Attractive salaries in comparison to other comparable healthcare countries. As an example, junior doctors can earn from $75,000 - $100,000 AUD, Registrars from $100,000 - $180,000, Staff Grade/CMOs from $130,000 - $280,000 and Specialists from $200,000 - $500,000.
  • A modern, well-run health system, both public and private.
  • Flexibility in terms of part time and other working options.
  • A clean and safe environment to live and work, with good education, housing and transport networks.

Although the majority of our roles are currently being filled by locally trained doctors, there’s a strong demand for overseas trained doctors from comparable healthcare countries, particularly GPs and consultant level doctors.

For those moving from overseas, our dedicated in-house migration team can facilitate visa applications and make the whole relocation process as smooth as possible.

“I would highly recommend working with Wavelength when considering a move to Australia. Wavelength was excellent from the start. The consultants really guided me through all the paperwork and made the whole process so easy. Everything was explained well and my partner and I are so glad now that we made this amazing move. I am now in my new role in the Central Coast and loving every minute of Oz life.”
