Health Recruitment Agencies

The healthcare sector in the UK provides jobs for over 1,000,000 people, inclusive of nurses, doctors, specialised practitioners as well as well as support staff. In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service offers free, comprehensive health care services to residents.

This sector employs many different professionals using health recruitment agencies. This is one of the busiest sectors in the UK and the shortage of professionals is common. For this reason, recruitment agencies are always on the lookout for practitioners specifically for medically undeserved areas. Busier locations include London, Leicester, and Birmingham.

Health Professional Requirements

The broad nature of this sector translates into its need for a wide variety of professional skills. Healthcare practitioners are required to be registered under the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). In addition, these licenses must be valid and current.

Healthcare providers are also required to have relevant academic certifications from recognised bodies and institutions. Most professionals in this field are directly involved with patients. However, recruitment agencies also recruit for other positions such as administration and human resources.

Recruitment agencies will are also more likely to select applicants who are empathetic, have strong communication skills and the ability to work in stressful environments. 

Healthcare Categories

The public sector is the biggest in the healthcare sector closely followed by the Private Health Sector. the public sector is regulated by the government and is worth over £125 billion.

This sector is financed through taxation and has, in recent years, invested in new equipment and quality care. Health recruitment agencies report that the public sector operates over 1400 hospitals around the UK.

The Private Sector, worth an estimated £43 billion, may be smaller than the public sector but it is a primary purchaser of medical goods. This sector employs healthcare practitioners who specialise in secondary and tertiary care. These are fields such as cosmetic surgery, which are typically unavailable in the public health sector.

Healthcare recruitment agencies also often enlist consultants.  This group consists of just under 30,000 professionals. They may provide their services to both the public and private sectors.

The increasing popularity of home technology has seen a significant rise in the hiring of home nurses. Other areas that have seen increased hiring rates include rehabilitation and orthopaedic sectors, health, fitness and diet, and dental.
