Locums

With 30 years of experience, we have many contacts in the hospital system and in general practice and are able to locate work in many different areas and specialities. We can coordinate your paperwork, saving you valuable time. We have regular email updates of work available and give you full support from the moment you apply for work till the money you earned is safely in your bank account. And best of all, the service to you is absolutely free!!
We offer free counselling to doctors with career dilemmas and can assist with training positions, special skills or mentorship positions.

RATES OF PAY FOR LOCUMS

Rates of remuneration for locums range from $80- $165/hr (all inclusive of salary and benefits) plus either superannuation or 10% GST depending on employee or contractor status, reimbursement of per kilometre travel allowance or return airfares (for rural locums) and suitable accommodation (for rural locums). Rates depend on degree of experience, the urgency or difficulty of a position and the amount of notice required.Some of our locums have an ABN and are prepared to work as contractors, billing the Local Health District or employer directly. We make the assumption that hospital locums working on the hospital / Local Health District payroll will be generally employer/hospital indemnified and that locums billing on their own ABNs are responsible for their own indemnity.
