Working with Aussie Locums

At Aussie Locums, we make it our business to really get to know our candidates and clients.

What this means in practical terms, is that we understand the importance of delivering a professional, personable, efficient, and effective service. Any reputable agency would of course say the same but what sets us apart, are the ‘little’ things as to us, those make the biggest difference. It’s the small, yet noticeable things that keep candidates and clients working consistently, and often solely, with us.

We make it our mission to always be available when it matters. Whether that is through our out of hours contact, or planning each new assignment meticulously, the reassurance that we are there every step of the way, makes a difference.

Our promise to candidates

We will:

  • always brief you on what to expect, especially at remote locations
  • assist you with travel and provide ‘local’ advice for a smooth transition
  • give you honest, constructive feedback
  • always contact you when we say we will
  • be committed to supporting you and your career
  • be available for you 24/7
  • spend time to get to know you so we find you the right job
  • respect your privacy
  • only send your resume with your permission
  • give you detailed job briefs
  • provide weekly payroll

What our candidates say...

"They are always available, even out of normal business hours. I had some trouble with a flight at the end of my last placement in Cooktown. The weather was so bad it looked like the flight might be cancelled, meaning I'd miss my following flight to Melbourne. Although they cannot control the weather, they were there every step of the way, contingency plan ready, to make sure I got home safe and sound.

I cannot fault the communication with any of the team at Aussie Locums. I really appreciate that they reply so promptly to email and phone calls, usually within a few hours and definitely within the day. They return calls when they say they will and use contracts that purvey the terms and conditions of employment in an easy to follow format. I believe these are qualities of a professionally run recruitment agency.“

KellieSonographer

Since I have worked with Aussie Locums, I have spoken to the whole team who have always resolved any issues. What amazes me is there are no radiographers or sonographers on staff. But they are aware or want to know about every machine that is onsite at placement Imaging centres, rosters and on call situations. There is an enthusiasm and knowledge of the Medical Imaging workplace that has surprised and enlighten me as an employee.

I have been doing a lot of travelling since retirement and the forte about Aussie Locums is they sort out my mountain of paperwork, working with children, hire cars, flights- etc some of the time this happens when I only have a mobile phone and some data so I’m sending back signed documents on my tiny scanner (phone) – but it works!

I highly recommend this great team and their communication skills with clients and employees.

RoseSonographer / Radiographer

It is with great pleasure that I share a recommendation for the team at Aussie Locums. I was fortunate enough to work with Nichole from Aussie Locums for numerous years as a locum sonographer, she then assisted me in acquiring a permanent position. Aussie Locums was the first recruitment company I called when first considering a transfer in locum work. After speaking with Nichole, I never contacted another agency. My experience with Aussie Locums has been nothing but positive, professional and personable. My placements were always extremely well organised, from accommodation to travel, relevant contacts to opening hours of supermarkets and sightseeing. There was many a phone call, always a first day check in, no matter how experienced I became with the lifestyle. These phone calls were always welcome, open conversations filled with genuine concern and often laughter.

On the very odd occasion where things didn’t go to plan, and honestly it was very few, I knew that all it would take would be a quick phone call before the situation was being resolved. I once found myself locked out of an apartment on a Sunday, in winter, in Tasmania after the employer forgot to leave the key. Nichole answered my call and after explaining there was nowhere for me to hide out of the cold, promptly had the situation rectified. There was always encouragement to contact the team with any questions or concerns, many of our conversations and discussions were outside of regular work hours. I was always made to feel like I was a priority.

It has been two years since my permanent placement. I still heartily recommend Aussie Locums in every discussion I have regarding my time as a locum. My consultants have become my friends and even now, I still get a unexpected check in call.
