How We Find You The Perfect Locum

We've brought the best locum agencies together in one place, competing to find you the best locum shifts, so you can find your perfect locum quickly and easily.


Tell us what you want

It all starts with your Messly profile. This says exactly what kind of work you're looking for, such as: 🏥 favoured sub-specialties, 💰 minimum rates, 🤝 ad hoc or long-term work, 🚙 travel preferences and more.

It only takes 5 minutes and can be done on your phone without needing any documents to hand.

Why do I need a profile?

Having specific information on your profile means you can get specific, targeted offers from agencies. This stops you getting spammy messages about jobs outside your speciality or 100s of miles from home.

Who sees my profile?

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.

Is it anonymous?

Yes, we only include your first name and you don't share your full name, GMC number or any contact details.

Receive locum offers from agencies

Agencies contact you through Messly, offering specific locum jobs upfront which are tailored to your locum wishlist. You manage all your conversation within Messly, 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.

Who are the locum agencies?

We only work with the best-rated and trusted agencies. We select them based on doctor feedback, and ensure they provide a great service.

Can I see jobs upfront?

Yes, agencies have to mention specific vacancies they have them they message you. No more vague promises of work that don't materalise!

How long does it take to get locum offers?

Most doctors will get multiple offers on the day they make their profile.

We help you start work

We'll help you start work. Your chosen agency will arrange to get you compliant and fix specific shifts for you.

Why is this better than signing up directly?

Messly gives you access to the whole market rather than a single agency so you're much more likely to find the right locum. In addition we make it easy to see jobs upfront, schedule calls with recruiters and manage all the admin from your phone.

Can you help me find other jobs apart from locums?

Yes we do occasionally have other opportunities for international, substantive and non-clinical work. You can opt-in for these where you register.

Can I ask Messly for advice?

Yes you'll be assigned one of our dedicated team when you register who'll be able to guide you through the job and agency selection process. They will be available by phone, Whatsapp and email.
