Most Experienced Medical Recruitment Agency in Australasia

Established by Miriam Martin in 1998. AUSSTAT/Kiwis STAT grew from a desperate shortage of quality doctors to fulfil rosters when permanent staff were not available when health providers still needed to provide vital and important services. A doctor and locum herself she recognised this need in the market and her experience could help bridge the gap in the Australian and New Zealand markets and she started with a rural and remote areas focus.

With proven experience and the on-going challenge of health providers trying to recruit and retain staff in the rural areas this medical recruitment company was able to flourish and provide an important role in the health sector.

Starting with what she knew Miriam put her efforts into the placement of locum doctors into medical roles and later used the proven model to cater for the need for nursing and other allied health professionals too.

During our 20th year, we celebrated a new chapter as we evolved into STAT Recruitment.

Permanent placements are also catered to with doctors from the United Kingdom, USA and other international destinations for those wanting to work in New Zealand and Australia.

It’s About People

With the idea that you need to treat your staff with the same service as your clients, Miriam set about creating a thriving work environment for her employees which is moulded into the fantastic relationships and service both our locums and health providers have come to enjoy and rely on when working with STAT Recruitment.
