About Us

Industry Leader

Australian Medical Placements (AMP) is one of Australia’s largest privately owned medical recruitment companies consistently chosen by the medical industry as the first choice in providing short, long and permanent placements for over 30 years.  

Australian owned and operated, the company was founded in the early 1980s primarily as an afterhours locum service. Today, Australian Medical Placements has progressed and expanded over the years to become a highly reputable and successful medical recruitment company, employing many full time, part time locums, sub contractors and permanent contracts.

With an extensive network and knowledge of the medical industry, Australian Medical Placements delivers the ideal medical recruitment solutions that meet client’s staffing requirements and match highly qualified doctors to the most suitable vacancies. Headed by our Directors Lyn Barker and Jodi Duyster, who are long time medical industry professionals, we pride ourselves in providing the best possible service to our doctors and clients.

In June 2014, Australian Medical Placements launched its in-house health, education and training division AMPHEaT and is the first and only medical recruitment company in South Australia to be offering in-house education and training to their doctors and the health community.

Committed to Customer Excellence

Australian Medical Placements is proud to be accredited with the Recruitment and Consulting Services Association (RCSA) and has received the industry’s highest service standards certification from the RCSA for the 5th year resulting from our high audit ratings.

Achieving full compliance in RCSA’s Service Delivery Standard sets the benchmark for the highest quality service and operational efficiency in the recruitment sector. Australian Medical Placements is the only medical recruitment company in South Australia who has achieved this distinction.

The team is proud to have achieved full compliance with AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management Systems, which is both an additional qualification to our existing accreditation, as well as the highest standard for excellence in this industry.
