Nurse Recruitment Agencies

Typically placing permanent and ad-hoc Nurses into the NHS and private hospitals, top Nursing recruitment agencies are experts at providing staffing solutions for the Care industry. Qualified candidates can be employed in a variety of Healthcare jobs and an employment consultancy will recruit key members of staff including Physicians, Nurses and Allied Health professionals.

Recruiting Nurses

Trusted Healthcare recruitment agencies that help candidates find Nursing jobs, will commonly work across a range of specialisms. Professionals can work as a Registered Nurse (RN), Registered General Nurse (RGN) or a Registered Sick Children's Nurse (RSCN), with the overall aim to provide care to patients who are suffering from acute or chronic health problems. A recruitment agency will look to recruit these candidate for permanent and temporary vacancies in care homes, nursing homes, hospitals and NHS trusts. NHS employers are only permitted to hire workers from an approved list of Nursing agencies, and these must apply the Employment Check Standards that are set out by the organisation.

Nursing qualifications and salaries

In order for Nursing staff to practice in the UK, they must first register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), a statutory body that regulates the field. The NMC currently has over 670,000 members and these include Locums, Heads of Primary Care and Mental Health Nurses. A pre-registration degree is also necessary, however these courses are typically funded by the NHS. A Healthcare or Medical agency will also look to identify soft skills when filling Nursing and Care jobs, such as flexibility, stress management and problem solving. NHS rates of pay fall into 'Bands' and this will determine a candidate's salary per annum. An assistant or entry level role such as Clinical Support Worker may start in Band 2 and command rates of £15K-£17K per annum. Conversely, established Nurses will find themselves in Band 5 and salaries here can range between £21K-£28K.
