Australia and New Zealand have gained a well-earned reputation for some of the highest standards of Anaesthetics in the world today.

With a dedicated Anaesthetics Team and exclusive relationships with many hospitals across the region, Wavelength provides locum and permanent job opportunities and career advice for Anaesthetists across all seniorities.

With surgical procedures on the rise, so too is the demand for Anaesthetists across the region’s public and private hospital networks. This demand has been recognised by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) resulting in a recent increase in the number of trainees accepted.

In terms of remuneration, locum Anaesthetists can expect to earn approximately $2,000 per day. Specialist permanent Anaesthetists can expect to earn salaries of between $250,000 to $400,000 per year depending on experience and seniority, with Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) Anaesthetists earning in excess of $500,000 per year.

We are finding a steady increase in those opting to pursue a career as a VMO and /or work between a public and private model and our consultants can provide informed advice on these various options.

Compared with many other medical specialties, Anaesthesia can offer agreeable flexible working opportunities, with the sessional nature of the work suited to part-time roles.

Our dedicated Anaesthetics Team provides expert career advice and some of the best Anaesthetics job opportunities currently available across Australia and New Zealand. Some of the specialty anaesthesia areas we recruit for include:  

  • General Anaesthetics
  • Paediatric Anaesthetics
  • Obstetric Anaesthetics
