If you’ve decided you would like to go locum, the best thing you can do is find yourself a good agency to team up with. Trying to find a placement on your own is possible but will end up being more work than is necessary. If you sign up with an agency, instead of spending all of your time and energy searching for a job you could be working while the agency does the running around for you. The tip is to sign up with a reputable agency that will make life easier for you instead of harder. At Best Practice Medical we are more than a recruitment agency. Read on to find out how our agency staff can assist you in finding your next locuming position:
Easy sign up
Our aim is to make everything as easy as possible for you, so that you can spend your time in paid work instead of looking for your next position. Our sign up is easy to complete and then it is time to have a chat with our staff. It is best for everyone if we have a thorough understanding of the type of work you are looking for, so that we can put you forward for only the best and most suitable placements possible. We will then get on to finding the best position for you, and if it’s a match, we will do the hard work of negotiating rates for you. Once you have started in your position, we will also look after all of the invoicing. As we said, our aim is to make this as easy and seamless as possible for you. Another way we support you is our 24/7 service. That is, you can log onto the website at any time to look at jobs, day or night, without having to wait for the centre to open before you can speak to someone.
