I have been working with Wavelength for several years and have been extremely happy with their service. They were very pleasant and helpful with the accreditation process. They listened to my work and location preferences and have been able to accommodate them well.

Dr Andris Kalnins
Psychiatrist

Thinking of locum work? Then strongly consider Wavelength as your agent. I have been with them since 2010 and have always found them efficient and eminently reliable. The efforts of the team gave me the feeling that my needs were uppermost on their agenda. They perform their management with adroitness and alacrity. I have no need to give any other locum agency a second look.

Dr Edwin Elcock
Psychiatrist

Within 24hrs of signing up, Wavelength had the contacts within the Hospital system to find me exactly the job I wanted, in the Hospital I wanted, in a major Australian city near my house - so I can both live in a major central city and locum there at the same time. I definitely recommended Wavelength, they are a pleasure to work with.
