It was a big change for me from working at a General Practice for 30 years to doing locum GP 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

Thank you so much for your great work! I have worked with Wavelength for more than 2 years and they always successfully manage to find excellent locums at great locations at a time that is convenient for me. They look after all the paperwork and negotiations, and follow up with me consistently to ensure I am satisfied.  I find them supportive, friendly, competent and just superb! I would recommend Wavelength to any GP choosing to do locums around Australia.

Dr Sejal Mishra

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!
