Welcome to Locum Life

FIND REWARDING JOBS IN general practice.

General Practice

We know that finding the right clinical settings where you can truly shine is the key to your success. We understand that you’re looking for career-defining opportunities in hospital environments that offer the scope to perfect your specialty within a supportive clinical team.

Why this benefits you? Our consultants have built strong relationships with our metro and rural hospitals which provide the best rates and shift availabilities for our doctors.

With our extensive network of public and private practices across metro, coastal, rural and regional areas, you can access the widest range of GP locum jobs and permanent General Practitioner jobs. Whether you want to join an established general practice looking for a new GP, secure a lucrative GP job in a private practice, take up a General Practitioner job in the Emergency Department of a larger hospital or even run an entire hospital in a remote community, the choice is yours.

We work with a range of GPs, including:

  • VR General Practitioners (FRACGP/FACRRM)

  • Non-VR General Practitioners

  • GP Emergency

Locum Life works with every state and territory health service in Australia and it’s fair to say that the demand for doctors far exceeds supply.

Just like there is more to a great job than just a good rate, there is so much more to a placement than matching a job to a skill set. With paperwork, registration and insurance requirements ever on the increase, you don’t want to be wasting your time down a rabbit hole in the wrong direction when we can lead you directly to your destination.
