Hello – I’m Nadine - Senior Recruitment Partner for Psychiatry at Prescript Recruitment.

I focus on connecting Psychiatrists with locum, permanent and fixed-term opportunities. I thought I’d introduce myself and share with you a bit about my experience, medical recruitment career so far and why I love working within this industry.

I have been working in medical recruitment since 2012 and have been able to establish long term and successful partnerships with both clients and candidates during this time. I’m excited to join the Prescript team so I can continue to make a difference.

What path did you take to get to Senior Psychiatry Recruitment Partner?

I have always been very active and drawn to sport & health which lead me to study Sport Science and Management at university in South Africa. When I moved to Australia in 2012, I wanted to remain closely connected to health & wellbeing, and medical recruitment was a niche that resonated with me.

My recruitment career has predominantly been focused on helping doctors in the general practice setting. I have now transitioned to psychiatry and look forward to assisting Psychiatrists to find locum, permanent and fixed-term positions within Australia and New Zealand.

Quality over quantity is definitely something I focus on. As a company, we won’t just partner with ‘anyone’, and we take our time to provide a bespoke, personalised service.

What are you doing differently for doctors?

I enjoy the holistic approach of helping doctors find not just the right career move but the right fit for them and their family.

I’m passionate about helping doctors find a job that suits their needs and my genuine interest in doctors & communities means I am able to place the right people in the right location.

My focus on quality service, and making sure everything I do is to the highest standard, is what makes me stand out.

What do you enjoy most about working within medical recruitment?

I really enjoy creating meaningful, long-standing relationships with both candidates and clients. I think it’s so valuable getting to know doctors, hospitals and practices, understanding their needs and tailoring my approach to suit these requirements.

Did you know…?

I was born in Johannesburg but spent my childhood in a number of African countries. I’ve been living in Sydney since 2012 and moved to Melbourne earlier this year with my husband and French bulldog Lola. I’ve been lucky enough to travel extensively and experiencing different cities and cultures is very important to me.

What do you see as big issues within medical recruitment right now?

The biggest issue that Prescript is helping to solve is the doctor shortage in regional areas. It’s a consistent problem across the whole of Australia and it is why we exist as an agency.

I’m excited to work at Prescript to help make a big difference within those smaller communities across the country.
