Locum Recruitment Consultant
Claudine has a Bachelor of Science (Psychology) from Macquarie University as well as a Diploma in Human Resources. She joined Wavelength in 2005 as a Recruiter for permanent roles in the Junior & Middle Doctor team. In 2006, she decided to make the switch to the locum team, initially recruiting Junior & Middle Grade Doctors and more recently Anaesthetists and General Physicians. This change from permanent to locum was initially quite a challenge, however Claudine is now one of our most successful recruiters.
A typical day for Claudine is outlined below:
How would you describe your work day?
I typically work on 30 jobs at any given time. Being organised and implementing good systems makes it easier to make placements in the demanding timeframe we work within.
What are the key activities which you usually undertake in your working day?
Credentialing is a critical part of my role, running background checks is an important step in placing any senior doctor and/ or specialist in a role.
How important is team work to you?
Wavelength is very team focused, to assist me I am fortunate to have a great Para, Andrew Kim. As Andrew and I sit next to each other we are frequently updating each other with progress on all placements and this works brilliantly.
What do you enjoy most about working at Wavelength?
I love my role at Wavelength and enjoy building strong relationships with clients and candidates - some have continued for over 5 years. Having a chat and really caring about their lives provides me with great satisfaction in my role.
