The Role
You will be working as a Locum GP, which will involve after hours, evenings, nights and weekends. Patients are referred by their GP for after hours care or the patient will contact the service directly.

Flexible rosters are usually available and you will need to give your availability four weeks in advance. Minimum hours per week are 48.

This position is not restricted by DWS as it is an out of hours position.

  • 70% billings

The Location 
Situated on the banks of the Yarra River, Melbourne is a sophisticated, friendly, multicultural city and is home to people from over 140 nations.

There are excellent schools, public and private, and world-class universities.

What Head Medical can do for you 
Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK’s specialist in international medical recruitment and we’ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
