Emma has a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Glasgow University and joined Wavelength in 2016 as a float para consultant. Six months later, she secured the role of locum para consultant on the Specialist Medicine desk.
How would you describe your work day?
I work closely with both locum medicine recruitment consultants in order to achieve the smoothest and most efficient placements for our candidates and clients. As a para consultant my main responsibilities include advertising and ensuring doctors are eligible for roles.
What are your main activities in a typical working day?
Credentialing is a critical part of my role. Running background checks is important when placing any senior doctor or specialist in a role. Advertising is a daily activity through the various channels we use. Also, once the placements are made, liaising with our doctors regarding paperwork, any travel and payment is also an integral part of my day.
How important is team work to you?
On the Specialist Medicine desk we definitely see the benefit of working closely as a team – sharing updates on doctors or hospitals really adds value to the work we can then produce. There’s a lot of open discussion and problem solving which has been beneficial to the team but also to my own learning and development within the company.
What do you enjoy most about working at Wavelength?
Everything – I love the flexibility, I love the recognition you receive for the work you put in and the many opportunities within the company. Not coming from a recruitment or medical background, I have learnt so much in such a small space of time. Most of all, I love the people. Having moved over from the UK, it was so lovely to find a place of work where you quickly feel like you are part of the family.
