With many longstanding and exclusive private and public health relationships. Psychiatry provides real opportunities to build a flexible and rewarding career thanks to flexible training arrangements, standard business hours, less frequent on call shifts and opportunities for travel.

Our specialist Psychiatry Team has seen a growing demand for locums in the past two years with a 40 percent increase in placements. This has been driven by a shift of psychiatrists from the public to the private network, opening up the number of locum opportunities within public hospitals.  More hospitals in metropolitan locations such as Brisbane and Perth also now have funding to use locums on a regular basis.

Psychiatry is renowned for being a particularly lucrative specialty. Locum psychiatrists can expect $2,000 per day plus all accommodation and travel expenses depending on location. Permanent specialist psychiatrists can expect to earn between $250,000 to $400,000 per year depended on experience, seniority and location. Psychiatry registrars and CMOs can expect to earn between $85,000 - $250,000 per year.

Our dedicated Psychiatry Team provides expert careers advice and some of the best psychiatry opportunities currently available in the following subspecialties:

  • General Adult Psychiatry
  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • Old Age Psychiatry (Psychogeriatrics)
  • Indigenous Psychiatry
  • Consultation Liaison Psychiatry
  • Addiction Psychiatry
