Recruiting International Talent for Medical Jobs

BDI Resourcing is a leading medical recruitment agency that connects the best and brightest international doctors with medical jobs in the NHS.

With an in-depth understanding of the recruitment challenges that Britain’s health service is currently facing, we aim to fill all-important roles with exceptional overseas doctors to help the NHS save money on locum expenditure. Thanks to our forward-thinking, inclusive approach to medical recruitment, we have successfully placed over 1,500 doctors into trusts all over the UK.

The NHS is experiencing an unprecedented staffing crisis, and based on current trends, staff shortages could exceed 570,000 by 2036. Factors such as an ageing population, a lack of funding, and Brexit are making it much more difficult for hospitals to recruit top doctors. By sourcing high-quality doctors from all over the world, we are playing a key role in helping trusts to recruit staff in a more efficient and affordable way. 

We are committed to going the extra mile for our candidates, and our award-winning services have helped many IMGs to find their dream medical jobs. From providing relocation support to nurturing your development through ongoing pastoral care, we will pay special attention to every aspect of your international job move. Our team understands that advancing your career in another country may appear daunting at first, but they’ll be there to guide you through the process to the best of their ability. 

BDI is dedicated to working with high-quality overseas doctors, so our NHS partners can rest assured that they’ll be hiring a stand-out candidate. Once we have helped you to fill your vacancies, we will be there to help them settle in and assist you with any queries. We understand that staff retention is paramount, that’s why we have been able to maintain a 99% retention rate for our international hires.
