Why Choose Ochre For Your Next Emergency Medicine Locum

Ochre Recruitment offers what other medical job agencies can't.

We are dedicated to seeking out emergency medicine employers who share your values.

We develop meaningful relationships that last the distance. In fact, we’ve been working with local and state-wide health services for 20 years.

We are an agency of choice because we are also a medical provider. We have a thorough understanding of hospital operations and the challenges facing both doctors and emergency departments, and as such, are experts in negotiating positive outcomes for doctors and clients alike.

Because we work in exclusive collaboration with the Tasmania Health Service (THS) and Western NSW Health District to fill their hospital locum rosters, you get access to ED jobs before they go to market.

We can help General Practitioners maintain their emergency capabilities and upskill with locum roles in the emergency department.

·         We offer a diverse range of opportunities in emergency medicine in metropolitan, regional and rural settings across all Australian states and territories. 

Let us help you work your way around Australia, from the tropics of Queensland to the iconic outback, from the rugged mountainous regions in Tasmania to the magnificent beaches and coastlines of New South Wales.

Ochre has made a tremendous impact on my work life. They provide a variety of locum sites, great logistical support, thorough pre-placement information about the town, health facility and what to expect. I would recommend the services of Ochre Recruitment to any doctors who are considering locum work or who are frustrated by their current agency.

Dr Oswell Viki


The staff at Ochre were instrumental in finding and organising work that catered to my specialty interests. They were affable and always contactable which gave me great peace of mind when working in regional hospitals.
