“These guys are the best!”

I first started locum work in October 2016. I had worked with another agency then. I had one free day to pick up locum work after joining STAT Recruitment (formerly AUSSTAT) which has since resulted in me working as a full-time locum with them.


STAT Recruitment makes it easy for me as they take care of everything from job to travel and so much more, and doing locums with them gives me a high level of flexibility to care for my family and study for my exams. If you are looking for someone to really look after you – these guys are the best!
