Availability and notice periods
Due to the emergency nature of many of our projects, anaesthetists are often needed at very short notice. However for some longer-term projects it may be possible to confirm a placement well in advance.
If you are genuinely interested to work with us but have concerns regarding the period of notice you may require, we encourage you to apply.
Your individual circumstances can be discussed as part of the interview process.
