Picture Yourself Practising Radiology in Australia

Since we started six years ago Head Medical have placed over 500 Doctors in amazing locations around the world.

We are now proud to announce the creation of a specialist Radiology Division focused on the recruitment of Consultant Radiologists to clinics and hospitals in Australia.

Radiology services of all sizes - public or private - welcome job applications from Radiologists trained outside of Australia who have the minimum requirements for registration sought by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists.

Demand is high and positions are highly competitive within this growing sector. Approximately 80% of Radiology services in Australia come from private providers. These range from large corporates through to small independents that are standalone clinics or provide a service from a facility within a hospital. 

This competitiveness enables choice and enables a jobseeker's market with regard to remuneration and employment conditions that include the promotion of a 40-hour Monday to Friday week with exceptional lifestyle benefits in some of the most in demand locations within Australia.  

Salaries per annum can be in the range of £125,000–250,000 (plus bonus) for Radiologists deemed partially comparable by the College (and who require a period of reporting). For those who achieve Fellowship, you can earn as much as £400,000 (plus bonus).

There are two ways that the Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists can seek registration in Australia - as a Specialist (Consultant)  in an “area of need” (AoN) or through the ‘Specialist Pathway’ whereupon you get assessed via a lengthier, more expensive and more rigorous assessment process. The shorter and less expensive AoN pathway offers some surprising locations which can be just an hour from a major city and can be in coastal locations. For example, one AoN has been categorized just 1hr from Sydney.

We are a UK based company, which means we are readily available to applicants to offer comprehensive expert advice on this registration process, relocation and support at every step of this life-changing process. This includes interview support, contractual negotiations, as well as guidance throughout the registration process with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. Our dedicated Registration team will also help manage your visa application, making the journey as easy as possible.

Alasdair Spinner, Managing Consultant of our Radiology Division, will take time to understand your career and lifestyle objectives tailoring the job search accordingly.
