The higher rates are usually attached to crisis shifts, where candidates are notified by SMS or phone.
What paperwork will I have to handle?
None. Once you register, we operate as your personal administrative assistant by submitting your accounts, issuing shift confirmations to both you and the hospital and providing an annual activity summary for you to submit with your taxes. We also resolve any late payments on your behalf.
You can access our real-time listing of available shifts on our website at any time by using your personal access code. We also email a list of available shifts to our locums every evening, and we e-mail or SMS urgent shifts to locums, as well as any shifts that are well-matched to a given doctor’s qualifications and/or locum objectives.
Shifts are posted real-time on our website and emailed to registered locums every evening. These shifts can start anytime from the following day to six months later.
That depends on the hospital’s size. But we’ll inform you if you’ll be the only doctor when we contact you, so that you can decide whether to take the shift.
Absolutely not. Only accept the shifts you want.
While sometimes our locums are offered permanent positions, most positions are temporary, ranging from a single shift to three months work or more.
Doctors who are well-suited for locum work are ready to become either a full-time locum or accept part-time work. They want to earn extra money, are currently between jobs or taking a break from training, or have retired from full-time employment. All locums must have full general or specialist Australian registration.
While we don’t provide CV service, we do provide tips and will assist where we can.
Keeping your information confidential is of the utmost importance to us. We will only use your information to contact your nominated referees once during registration and to follow up on your Criminal Record and Working with Children checks. Also, we only forward your CV to a hospital for the shifts you have selected after we obtain your permission to do so.
