A combination of leading facilities, groundbreaking research and the steady demand for surgical procedures has seen an increased demand for surgeons across Australia and New Zealand in both urban and regional areas.

Skilled Medical has worked hard on establishing relationships with hospitals in the public and private sector to find the most sought after Surgery jobs across all subspecialties. We have seen an increase in demand across all subspecialties with this being particularly high in General Surgery and Orthopaedics.

Skilled Medical is currently seeking qualified Surgeons for locum and permanent roles in rural, regional, remote and metropolitan areas of Australia and New Zealand.

Rural and regional positions are appealing to General Surgeons, as the work can be varied and offer interesting and varied opportunities. We are also seeing a steady demand in positions available in the private as well as the public sector. The steady demand is attributed to the fact that 55% of elective operations in Australia are performed in the private sector, whereas in New Zealand, 80% of elective operations take place in the public system.
