About Us

A History of Nursing Excellence

Over the past 30 years Aktrapid Nursing Agency has provided quality nursing and allied health staff to aged care facilities and a variety of other health care providers across Melbourne Victoria and Sydney New South Wales.

We pride ourselves on building close and rewarding relationships with our business partners, and will go to every effort to tailor our services to your needs. We are a progressive and ever changing organisation that recognises the need for the nursing agency industry to grow and change with the needs of its clients.

New Opportunities

In 2014, Aktrapid moved into a new era with an amalgamation with Chandler Health, a division of Chandler Services. A complete modernisation of systems and processes has both of our health services organisations primed for an exciting future, while continuing to provide the service that made them an industry leader, creating a one-stop solution to all your nursing recruitment requirements.

Who are Chandler?

Chandler began as a traditional labour hire agency, founded in 1991. Providing a range of services to small local companies and large multi-nationals, Chandler has a reputation for tailoring our services to our client’s individual needs, and ensures only the best candidates are presented to your business. We bring our knowledge and expertise to the Health industry by merging with Aktrapid.

Quality Assurance and Safety

Our business would not exist without a group of loyal and highly skilled staff and so their wellbeing and safety is paramount. Recognising the inherent risks and difficulties of working as an on-call nurse/allied health team member, we have developed a set of safety criteria that our clients must meet before we are willing to supply staff. Work life balance and training also take priority to ensure our nurses are happy, healthy and job ready.

Aktrapid is a member of the Recruitment and Consulting Services Association (RCSA) and adheres to the strict standards set by its governing body. We are also an ISO9001 accredited organisation.
