About us

Plexus provides a free service to doctors and nurses from all specialties considering temporary or permanent work in Australia or New Zealand.

Working in Australia and New Zealand offers new professional challenges in intellectually stimulating, socially relaxed countries with a high standard of living. Both countries have enviable climates, providing the chance to ski and surf!

Australia and New Zealand are safe and relatively crime free. There are limitless opportunities for the enjoyment of culture, the environment and sport; both are also great places to raise children.

Our medical and nursing recruitment teams are friendly and supportive. We have all worked in the healthcare sector and understand what it is like to relocate to another country.

Plexus Medical Recruitment is an ethical company and strongly supports the Commonwealth of Nations Code of Practice for the International Recruitment of Health Workers.

Plexus is proud to be part of IntoWork Australia. A national leader in specialist recruitment, employment and training services, IntoWork Australia is your one-stop employment shop.

Our story

In 1997, on a cold, wet November night in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Dr Bertie Weitkamp decided enough was enough and he was heading to Australia to complete a year of his anaesthesia fellowship training in the sun. He returned to the UK after a fabulous 12 months in Melbourne, determined to move ‘down under’ permanently. Bertie and his family moved to Australia in 2002 after a long struggle through mountains of registration and immigration paperwork. He is now a fellow of the British and Australian professional colleges.

Once settled in Australia, Bertie had calls from several colleagues from the UK and Germany asking how to go about gaining registration in Australia and New Zealand. From these enquiries, Plexus was born.

Our business is large enough to be able to supply the biggest of clients but small enough to still remember the details. That’s what sets Plexus apart.
