Anaesthetics Jobs

Discovering Outstanding Talent for Anaesthetics Jobs

BDI’s team prides itself on connecting top international doctors with anaesthetics jobs in the NHS. Our team of specialist recruiters have a forward-thinking and inclusive approach to medical recruitment, using online media campaigns to source the best and brightest medical talent from all over the world.

Thanks to our modern and sustainable recruitment strategy, we have successfully made over 1,500 placements to more than 100 NHS Trusts. 

The need for anaesthetists in the NHS has never been greater. The Royal College of Anaesthetists warned that a combination of limited training opportunities, low staff retention, and an ageing workforce is contributing to the chronic shortage of anaesthetics specialists. To prevent the ‘perfect storm’ that the RCOA warns of, the NHS and the health sector in general need excellent professionals to fill those essential roles, and we are ready to meet this recruitment challenge. 

By recruiting doctors from more than 50 countries worldwide, our award-winning team is providing our NHS partners with access to a much wider pool of candidates. If you choose to partner with us, not only will you receive an outstanding doctor to fill your anaesthetist position, you’ll also cut down on time and cost by reducing your reliance on expensive locum staff. Our 99% retention rate is a testament to the industry-leading medical recruitment services we offer for NHS trusts. 

As an IMG or UK-based anaesthetist, you’ll have plenty of job opportunities, and the BDI team will be on hand to support you in your job search. You can choose several routes towards GMC Registration including EDAIC, EDIC or FRCA depending on the area you wish to pursue later on. Once you have all the necessary qualifications, you’ll be able to work as a senior doctor and potentially go on to specialise in areas such as paediatrics, cardiology, or pain management.
