About Us

Our modern, digital approach to international recruitment encourages diversity and ensures long term partnerships across borders whilst reducing costs and vastly accelerating the hiring process for the NHS. We are digital, ethical, sustainable, affordable and fast.


We connect international doctors to the NHS by using digital technologies and media. Our in-depth articles, information-packed YouTube videos, and welcoming webinars have built an audience of hundreds of thousands of doctors globally.

This community is the perfect platform for our NHS partners to showcase their Trusts through client spotlight pages and targeted job adverts without being limited to a single source country or in-person conference networking.

The NHS is a force of good far beyond the UK’s borders, which is why we extend our reach to multiple countries, ensuring fairness and inclusion rather than draining the resources of single source countries. Of course, we are fully committed to the Code of Practice for International recruitment, meaning we never actively recruit from red list countries.

We have a worldwide, multi-country approach to encouraging diversity in the NHS workforce. Not only does this bring excellent doctors to the NHS, but it also promotes the education and upskilling of international doctors, benefiting the global healthcare workforce. We see that as our social responsibility and take it seriously.


By investing fully in a digital first strategy, we minimise the need for international travel, instead forming strong bonds with our digital strategies and communication.

We have committed to becoming a net zero-carbon supplier to the NHS by 2050. We offset our carbon emissions, use a local, sustainable supply chain, and contribute to charitable and renewable initiatives. We are a sustainable recruiter with the future in mind.

Carbon Reduction Policy

When recruiting for the NHS, affordability matters – a lot. That’s why we have a single, transparent flat fee, allowing NHS trusts to budget efficiently. There are no hidden fees, keeping pricing simple.

Permanent staff on direct contracts, present a simple and effective way of considerably reducing locum expenditure.

We are also part of all of the CCS and HTE Frameworks having worked with over 100 NHS Trusts, and we’re so confident in our retention rates that we offer a market leading 1 year rebate period on our fees.


Our average time between offer and arrival is 112 days, including full pre-employment checking, visa processing and international travel. This is just 22 days longer than a standard NHS notice period.

Thanks to our expert recruiters and exceptional relocation support, we provide a 98% offer and 95% acceptance rate from all our candidates. On top of that, just 0.95% of our placement result in rebate. So, you can trust that the process delivers fast and efficient recruitment results that last.
