  • Are you having difficulties finding doctors to meet your exact requirements?

  • Do you need quality locum staff?

  • And do you want to reduce your reliance on locum staff?

  • Do you want to build your talent pools?

  • Is the cost of recruitment an issue?

  • Do you want better workforce reporting?

  • Do you want to spend less time on recruitment and more time on patient care?

“The biggest plus for me in dealing with Wavelength has been in the quality of its people and hence resulting quality of its service. The quality of Doctors recruited for me in three Australian states has been, without exception, uniformly excellent. This speaks highly of Wavelengths professional standards and being fully cognisant of client needs.”

The quality of doctors sourced for us has been very pleasing. They have always been fully vetted and the required compliance paperwork done.”

Tim Smart

“Working with Wavelength has been an absolute pleasure. The team met with us to understand our needs, developed a highly successful strategy and achieved what would be impossible for us to do without their depth of industry knowledge. We were provided with ample applicants to fill our specialist and registrar vacancies ahead of the agreed time-frame, and have now engaged a whole team of RMO's as a bonus. We look forward to being fully staffed with happy, vibrant Doctors at all levels.”
