GP jobs are abundant in Australia right now. You’re in high demand as a locum GP and this means longer term placements are the most financially lucrative for you. Practices and hospitals are more willing to pay locum GP’s higher rates and with even more additional benefits. It's worth noting that permanent GP jobs are equally as lucrative right now.
You’ll get paid the most if you commit to a GP locum doctor job for 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. Longer term placements mean you can take your family with you, and often with free accommodation.
Locum GP jobs are best suited to doctors who have unrestricted work entitlements in Australia.
