It was a big change for me from working at a General Practice for 30 years to doing GP locum work. Having friendly and professional staff at Wavelength made it so much easier to do. I would recommend Wavelength International to my colleagues and friends and in fact, I have done so several times.

Dr Kingsley Pearson
General Practitioner

Wavelength were excellent from the start. They really guided me through the paperwork and made the whole job search process much easier. Everything was explained well and we are so glad now that we made this amazing move. I am now in my new role on the Central Coast and loving every minute of Oz life. I would highly recommend working with Wavelength if considering moving to Australia!

Dr Nikolas Davies
General Practitioner

The level of individual support and attention given to me by the Wavelength team always makes me feel as though I am their only Client; knowing very well that isn't the case. They are all very dedicated and take the greatest pride in their work. With all of them looking out for my best interests, I have had the best support in my job search. All I can say to them is a big Thank you!

Dr Sumana Chadalavada
General Practitioner

Wavelength understands the sort of jobs I want to do, and they find me plenty of good roles. The last few years working with Wavelength have been the most professionally rewarding part of my career, I'm really enjoying it.

Dr Charles Lee
General Practitioner

I honestly couldn’t have managed working full time and looking for a new job. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. Wavelength provided me with so many opportunities and saved me so much time.

Dr Samsun Nahar
General Practitioner

I’d love to reiterate that thanks to wavelength we’re on an incredible journey and I couldn’t promote wavelength highly enough!  It’s been a very professional experience and there seems to be no weak link! I’d like to recommend you to everyone!! I’d appreciate it if you could forward my thoughts to whoever would be interested as I genuinely believe we may not have made this move without you!
