The team at Wavelength are just fabulous. They have always been very helpful, professional, caring and prompt. I have really enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for jobs in Psychiatry. Well done the Wavelength team!

Dr Arun Gupta

The service I received was superb with frequent contact demonstrating a good understanding of my needs and the roles available. This open and honest communication also included plans and priorities which was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend Wavelength to anyone looking for their next Psychiatry job.

Dr Robin Pratt

When I approached Wavelength, the team gave me Psychiatry job options and eased me through the complex procedure of accreditation and assessment. Even when I landed, the consultants made sure I was settling into my new Psychiatry job and couldn’t have been more helpful. I would highly recommend Wavelength to all my medical colleagues who wish to work in Australia.
