Here what our candidates have to say

Mitch is one of the best recruiters I have used. Mitch is well organized, reliable, quick, and supportive. I would highly recommend him to any Doctor looking to secure their ideal position.

Dr Shabrina Hussein – General Practitioner FRACGP,

Professional, efficient and prompt service. Liam was accessible and maintained the communication even after my recruitment. JPS knows how to match skill mix with suitable locations. Bottom line, was glad to have chosen JPS. Thanks Liam.

Dr Syed Khadri – Director of Emergency & Director of Medical Services – Central Gippsland Helath Service


Dr Syed Khadri - Director of Emergency & Director of Medical Services,

I recently completed a locum assignment through Mitch at JPS Medical Recruitment. Mitch listened to my requirements and found me a job that ticked all the boxes for me. Mitch was a pleasure to work with and he followed up closely before, during and after the locum paying attention to the smallest of details.

Dr Tridiv Madhok – GP

Dr Tridiv Madhok,

When you talk to Diana Sare even for the first time, it is very certain that you will feel she is very close, familiar, understandable, and able to provide a professional kind of service you have been always after. It is not only a matter of friendly attitude, because behind this level of super amazing package of human values, there is an impressive scope of expertise able to explore the very corner stones in a job market characterised by continuous waves of changes and challenges. I’m really more than happy that Diana and JPS RECRUITMENT are my agent or the very eye via which I know my footsteps and my chances. Thanks for Diana and all the team members of JPS RECRUITMENT.

Dr Asmaa Shehabeddin – Psych Registrar

Dr Asmaa Shehabeddin - Psych Registrar,

Dear Liam, I really appreciate your efforts.  I still remember how many emails I sent to you on even minor issues. You replied to me without any irritation. I can say boldly that I am here because of you. You are the one who motivated me,  otherwise,  I would have lost hope. 


I am really thankful from the depth of my heart. 


Dr Moaziz Sarfaraz – ED Registrar


Dr Moaziz Sarfaraz - ED Registrar,

It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation for Diana. Migrating to a new country as a medical professional is a daunting task with all the regulatory and immigration affairs, but it can be done with ease if you have a supportive person like Diana to guide all along. I have been associated with Diana since early 2019 when I was looking to move to Australia. I have found her to be very trustworthy, determined and focused with her work. What makes her different from others is her attitude and optimism. This testimonial is long overdue for such a wonderful human being and thorough professional. I have no second thoughts about recommending Diana to any medical professional or potential employer.


Dr. Mohammed Shariff – ED Registrar



Dr. Mohammed Shariff - ED Registrar,

As a soon-to-be new consultant, I had a lot of things I didn’t know about, pretty much everything. My recruitment consultant, Ané Robert, was great, prompt and helpful in answering all my questions about contracts and the application processes. I even ended up in a great job I didn’t even know was available. I strongly benefited from their experience and would definitely use them again.

Dr Daniel Ki - Paediatrician,

Hope you are doing well Gwyn. Thank you for the last payment from JPS. Just want to thank you for the endless efforts you implemented in addressing my issues in regards to shifts, accommodation and payments.  It was lovely working with you and representing JPS medical Recruitment. Hoping to work again with JPS Medical recruitment in near future.  Wishing you a merry Christmas and Happy New year.


Dhanusun Rajaratnam

Registered Nurse

Dhanusun Rajaratnam - Registered Nurse,

It has been a wonderful experience working with JPS Medical Recruitment. And a special mention to Ané Robert. From the beginning, she has been extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. She guided us through the entire process ensuring that we had all the documentation necessary. She followed up after every submission (AHPRA, RANZCOG, visa application) to make sure that the process was smooth. I shouldn’t forget to mention how she played a pivotal role in giving me confidence before my job interview. Ané called me several times in preparation and also about 30 minutes before the interview to remind me that I can do it and that I should just be confident. I strongly recommend JPS to anyone who is serious about making the move to Australia.

Dr Lucia Chimanga - O&G Specialist,

Ané is an amazingly professional recruitment agent, who takes personal interest and responsibility for her clients. Ané has been a torch bearer during this hard journey in seeking a Job in Australia. I think without her dedication and support it may not have been so easy to secure this job. I wish her the best of luck and pray for her success.
