  4. How can I maximize my work opportunities?

    The best way is to keep in touch! Call us weekly if you can.

    It is helpful if you regularly update your availability with us: this can be done by telephoning our consultants. We want to understand the type of assignments that you prefer, the times when you want to work; and the type of organisations where you want shifts. The more you are in touch with us and provide feedback and comments, the better we can meet your needs and choices.

  5. Do you provide transport to the clients?

    No, it is the responsibility of the candidates to ensure they get to their shift by the required time.

  6. Do you provide accomodation?

    No, not usually, but there may be circumstances where this may be an option..

  7. How will I know what I will get paid?

    A guide to our rates of pay is on this website: specific rates of pay for an assignment will also be discussed and agreed with you by our consultants at the time of booking. Visit Pay Rates. We endeavour to secure the best rate of pay for our candidates, taking account of each client’s stated budget.

  8. Do I receive holiday pay as a locum doctor?

    For work performed for most of our clients, your holiday pay is paid to you as part of the hourly rate that you receive each week. This removes the need for you to request holiday and conditions.

    If you would prefer to accrue or accumulate holiday pay and be paid separately you must request this of us in writing. In the case of candidates working at a clients’ location where leave is accrued, then these candidates can take paid leave and should check with the payroll department to see how much leave has been accrued before taking any leave.

  9. What should I do if I am accruing leave and I want to take paid leave?

    Contact one of our Recruitment Consultants who will be able to fax or e-mail you a leave form which you should fill out and return to us for our payroll department to process. It is very important when you fax a document like this that you check that the payroll department has received it and confirm with them that they will process your paid leave.

    If you are working regular shifts with a specific client, it is very important you liaise with the recruitment consultant who manages that client so they are aware of your intention to take leave and can find a suitable replacement for you in your absence. In these cases, you should give four weeks’ notice of any intention to take leave.

  10. How do I get paid?

    We operate a weekly payroll. In order to be paid, you must complete a time sheet; it is important that you print clearly your name, the name of the client, the hours that you have worked (less breaks) and the specialisation in which you have worked. The time sheet can only be agreed by an authorised signatory at the client establishment.

  11. Where do i send my time sheet?

    All time sheets must be emailed, faxed or posted to our payroll department:-

    Ambition 24hours payroll,
    Ambition House,
    107 Voortrekker Road,
    Bellville,
    Western Cape,
    7535.

    Email: timesheet@a24.co.za
    Fax: 0860 266 524

  12. How do the pay deadlines work?

    If your time sheet reaches us by 12 noon on Tuesday, you will be paid (provided there are no reasonable queries or problems) on the following Friday for all shifts up to the previous Sunday night.

  13. How do I get my pay slip?

    Please inform us if you wish to receive a pay slip. Pay slips can be collected from our Bellville head office or can be emailed to you.
