Wavelength has been able to source locum work for me much easier than other agencies. They helped with all the paperwork and accommodation details and met my needs wherever possible. Overall it was a really friendly experience.

Dr Imran Khalid
Surgical Registrar

I’ve used a few agencies but Wavelength has been by far the best which is why I now trust them to exclusively handle all of my locum placements. They have been terrific to work with, being proactive in contacting me about opportunities, optimising my contracts and following up on how the job is going.

I’ve enjoyed the flexibility of the locum life in terms of being able to make choices about location, keeping things interesting by doing a variety of jobs and not being tied down to a long-term and rigid roster.

Dr Kah Kit Yoong
Medical Registrar

Wavelength was able to secure the jobs I wanted before they were advertised - their networks are extensive. I have gained more general surgical experience working with Wavelength as a Locum Doctor than I would have had if I just stayed in my full-time role. Learning from different consultants, theatre exposure and working across rural & regional hospitals has helped make me a better Doctor.
