About Us

Xigent Locums is an established medical locum and recruitment agency, based in Queensland, but finding suitable positions for Doctors throughout Australia. We are a family business, established in 2006, with many years prior experience in the hospital system on both the medical and nursing side. This means we can have a good try at understanding what you want – be you doctor or employer. Tell us what you want or need, and we will deliver.

We work with a wide variety of Health Employers across Australia, and have a unique mix of employers, some of whom use us exclusively to source their locum staff. This includes public hospitals, private hospitals, private practices, and private companies providing health services to mining, construction, and the community. They understand that we will find the appropriate Doctor for their vacancy.

We place our Doctors in most experience levels (From PGY2 to Specialists) and the majority of Specialties, including:

  • Emergency Medicine (where we started and close to our hearts)
  • General Medicine
  • Rural Generalists (with and without special skills)
  • Anaesthetics    
  • Paediatrics
  • Orthopaedics
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • General and Trauma Surgery
  • General Practice
  • Occupational Health (particularly in Mining and Construction)

We started with a focus on providing an individualised service. We have never wanted to be another corporate multinational clone. Xigent Locums has grown, however we’ve always remained a family company. We have retained our attention to the individual and their unique requirements and attributes, combined with a high quality professional responsive service – recognised by certification under the RCSA Service Delivery Standard.
