The best rated service for locum doctors

Hi, I'm Abrar 👋

I'm a British doctor, who started Messly in 2016 with my friend Chris to support UK doctors to have more fulfilling careers. We're stoked to bring our services to Australian doctors 🇦🇺 🚀

As a doctor I've experienced the challenges of finding the right locum work. I know how it feels to miss out on better paid, more rewarding, or more convenient locums, or just worry about getting started.

Messly is a faster, simpler and more transparent way to find locum work. By giving you choice and putting the power in your hands, you get better paid, more rewarding, and more convenient locums.

Our service has been trusted by over 12,000 locum doctors and is rated five stars by doctors on Trustpilot.

How we find you the perfect locum

We make finding locum work faster and simpler and give you more control.
Step 1

Tell us what locums you want

Set your locum wishlist on your Messly profile, which states exactly what locums you want. Then only see locum jobs matched exactly to those needs. No spam, no time-wasting and a personalised service for you.
Your Personalised Profile
Your profile on Messly includes your minimum hourly rate, how far you'll travel, your start date, preferred specialty and much more. It takes less than 5 minutes and helps you get exactly what you're looking for.
Stay Anonymous
We only include your first name on your profile. Only share your full name, AHPRA number or any contact details when you're ready with agencies you've selected.
Privacy First
Only recruiters from agencies that are vetted and approved by Messly can see your profile, so you don't need to worry about your colleagues or current hospital coming across it.
Step 2

Get matched with locums near you

Agencies contact you through Messly, offering specific locum jobs upfront which are tailored to your locum wishlist. You manage all your conversation from your Messly Inbox, and don't share your personal details until you're sure that you want to go ahead. You can turn off your Messly profile any time, and nobody can contact you.
Your Recommended Jobs Feed
See a personalised recommendation. We match your jobs based on your grade, specialties, location, pay-rates and grades.
See Available Locums, Up Front
Agencies have to mention specific vacancies they have when they message you. No more vague promises of work that don't materalise. Most doctors will get multiple offers on the day they make their profile.
Reviews & Ratings
See reviews and ratings of agencies and recruiters written by verified doctors who have worked with the agency. No more guessing if you've chosen the right agency.
