We are very grateful and pleased with the outcome of the work that LA undertook.    We run a busy surgical practice that needed streamlining and a restructuring of staff.  Most doctors do not have the time outside of their regular working hours to appraise their practice needs.   We had issues we could identify but not necessarily resolve without an experienced external eye.   We found the professionalism and attention to detail from Sally remarkable.  She treated the business as her own and worked at an incredible pace, putting in protection mechanisms and protocols that any practice manager could step into.   We saw results immediately firstly in the quality of care of our patients and secondly in the back office organisation.    The combination of Sally’s medical practice experience and Cathy’s solid recruitment background are I believe unparalleled in the Brisbane medical sphere and we feel very fortunate to have had them in our practice.

Elizabeth Melsom - Business Manager, Dr David Melsom

I am very pleased to write a glowing review for the team and services provided by LA Recruitment.  Sally rescued me and my practice at a time of extreme disaster. She plucked the perfect person to step in as my practice manager at very short notice and really has done a great job of matching our personalities.

Dr Nicola Ward, Dr Nicola Ward, Orthopaedic Surgeon

Changing jobs can be a remarkably stressful time, particularly if you are unsure of where you are going to next.  The team at LA took all of the stress and worry out of this process.  Whilst being 100% professional, they also took the time to take a personal interest and were warm and reassuring from the first phone call through to placement.  Their genuine interest in me as a person removed all the stress from finding my perfect job!  A huge thanks to Jo, Cathy and Sally!

Pippa - Candidate

I have known Sally in a professional capacity for more than 10 years and would not hesitate to recommend her practice management skills and understanding of how a private practice needs to operate.  Her management skills are also of an exceptional standard.  She will always add value to any business she touches.

Mark Jacobs (National Injury Management Advisor)

After 30 years working in the medical administration field, but being away from Brisbane for nearly 6 years, it was reassuring to be able to ease my way back into the ever-changing networks in Brisbane with the expert assistance of the amazing LA Team….thank you ladies!

Ann-Maree - Candidate

L A use a very personal approach to placement backed by psychometric testing, to ensure the best fit for clients. I’ve  enjoyed diversity in my assignments and maintained continuum in the industry. Jo’s warm greeting and informal approach to registering with LA sets the tone for Cathy’s thorough face to face interview, which helped define work goals and preferences. The narrative was honest and helpful.  Sally meets me on site to brief me on assignments, checks how I’m going and thanks me for helping out. Jo sends regular cheery emails and timesheet reminders. Life is short. Work with someone awesome!

Ruth - Candidate

I had the pleasure of meeting with LA Recruitment upon relocating back to Brisbane. The process of registering was smooth and painless, refreshing during the ordeal of job searching.  The design of the office is bright, beautifully decorated and clean.  The team are friendly, easy to talk to and relate to.  Jo your follow up’s after our meeting have been greatly appreciated and I will be recommending all medical colleagues in search of employment to contact you.

Casey - Candidate

LA Recruitment were able to find me highly capable staff at short notice and get them working with a minimum of disruption to my Practice.  They also were able to manage the training of staff in my processes and fill gaps as required.  I was extremely happy with their service and would certainly use them again.

Dr Tim McMeniman - Orthopaedic Surgeon (Knee Surgery & Sports Injuries)

We have found LA Recruitment very professional.  They were attuned to our needs and provided us with an excellent candidate.  Having access to highly skilled temporary staff relieved stress for ourselves and current staff so we could employ a great new team member.  We would certainly recommend LA Medical Recruitment to our colleagues.

Dr Helen Kilgour MBBS FRACGP

A last minute need for relief coverage was coordinated in moments.  Sally demonstrates professionalism and passion in her work.  I appreciated the quick response, efficiency and prompt follow-up to my request from LA Medical.

Moira Hickey, Site Manager, Rooms Bayside

Cathy and her fabulous team work above and beyond to look after their candidates – whether temporary or permanent.  I really fell on my feet as my interview was so thorough and the best I have ever had.  Cathy really listened to me and advised on going forward.  My confidence was renewed with the expert knowledgeable help I received.  I was so happy with the temp assignments I have attended – the clinics were so professional – I was welcomed and felt I had worked with them for years.

This is the first stop for temp/perm placements and for clinics to ensure they have the best staff working for/with them.  Well done LA Medical Recruitment!

Christine - Candidate

We are a dynamic, high performing medical practice and Sally complements our style perfectly.  Her professionalism, integrity and support has been invaluable and she has consistently gone the extra mile with excellent results.

We are thrilled to have formed a strong working relationship with the LA Medical Recruitment team that we can work with into the future.
