Yorkshire Health Care recruitment agency listing

The demands on the UK health sector are higher than ever with the government continuing to cut funds and the population generally living longer. The National Health Service (NHS) is increasingly under strain but is still the largest single employer in Europe. The UK has around 4 million health sector employees and the NHS is responsible for around half of this. With such a strong industry in terms of numbers, UK recruitment agencies have always been important in finding the most capable staff for their clients in the health sector. These could range from nursing to administrative positions to fill permanent, contract and temporary vacancies.

The field of health can prove to be one of the most personally rewarding areas of work although job cuts has made it more difficult to find prospective opportunities. Due to the sheer range of job roles, working out an average salary for the industry is difficult. It is predicted that the the average worker in the sector earns around £30K although there can be more than a £50K gap between the highest and lowest paid positions. Support workers and clerical staff tend to be at the low end of the scale when compared to senior GP's, surgeons and medical practitioners.

In Yorkshire, the health industry has grown significantly in recent years with ten major private hospitals as well as smaller practices and care homes now open in the county. It's also a prime location for graduates with the NHS being the leading graduate employer in the region.

Graduates are in high demand in the health sector due to their specialist skills and knowledge. As a whole, the industry is considered a highly skilled profession and so a relevant degree is crucial for most candidates. Care roles are less degree driven but will most likely require some previous work experience or necessary NVQ or diploma. Candidates will also need to be empathetic and thick skinned and have the ability to work in pressurised situations.
