Wavelength listens to what I have to say and tries to match up roles as best as they can. They always put me first and continuously negotiate the best outcomes on my behalf with the hospital.

Dr Sandeep Goel
Surgical Registrar

Wavelength was very diligent and proactive in getting me the best Orthopaedic Registrar locums, based on my experience and requirements. As a Senior Reg I was really looking for good exposure to theatre which they helped me with. I am now in full-time employment in a senior role and still very happy to locum whenever I get a chance – I highly recommend Wavelength.

Dr Yateen Morar
Orthopaedic Registrar

Wavelength exemplifies professionalism and attention to detail in all of their dealings with me. The transition to a different culture and work practice is not easy but they made the journey stress-free. Wavelength are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to any other professional contemplating a change in working environment.
