ODP recruitment agency listing

An ODP (Operating Department Practitioner) plays a key role in assisting the operating department team of a hospital and will work alongside theatre nurses, anaesthetists and surgeons. Their ultimate goal is to guarantee that every operation undertaken by a given hospital is completed as effectively and safely as possible.
When looking for the ideal candidate, recruitment agencies will look for potential staff that will be able to demonstrate unrivalled levels of patient care. This should be complemented by the application of medical theory when needed as well as coherent communication skills and great standards when it comes to perioperative care.
In order to stand a good chance of recruitment as an ODP, applicants should have at least five GCSEs at grades A to C plus A Levels or an equivalent qualification. Good work experience is not essential but a history of working with medical staff in the past may well improve the chances of successful employment. The average wage for a member operating department staff is £28,000 per annum.
There is no national shortage of ODPs but well qualified personnel with relevant work experience will stand a good chance of employment due to the skilled nature of the operating department. A typical employer would be the NHS but there could also be opportunities in private health care.
