Medical Recruitment

Across our International staffing solutions, we offer a range of different services to meet the complex and unique demands of trusts and Healthcare Organisations.

Permanent/fixed-term recruitment: We have extensive industry experience with recruiting permanent HCPs to help reduce excessive locum spend and improve patient-centred care.

Executive search: We have strong relationships with high-calibre Healthcare Professionals from all over the world. If you have particularly hard-to-fill, substantive vacancies, we can ensure you’re in the best position to attract and engage the most in-demand HCPs.

In-country recruitment: join us on an international recruitment drive and you can interview and assess international Healthcare Professionals directly. This not only ensures better matching and higher retention, but allows you to recruit at pace and scale.

Recruitment process outsourcing: ID Medical International can manage your entire end-to-end recruitment, relocation, and retention processes. We can work flexibly and harmoniously with your existing teams and ensure best practice is applied throughout.
