Frequently asked questions

Yes absolutely. We have a unique model of recruitment and do not gain anything by trying to act as an intermediary so we encourage you to negotiate directly with your employer for permanent positions if you prefer. We can also assist here if you wish. Our specialised Locum system locumnz allows you to speak directly with your employer so no time is wasted by waiting on a recruiter.

Because we work differently to any other “agency” and as a not for profit organisation we ensure you get paid directly by the practice for either permanent or Locum positions. The employment relationship you hold is with them. We support the recruitment process to make it easy.
