I am on three months' notice with my current employer? Does this exclude me from applying for locum jobs?

Because locum jobs are usually advertised to fulfil a short-term need, in most cases the employer will not look favourably on a candidate who has to give an extended notice period. However, in some areas there is an acute shortage of qualified practitioners, so this may not be an issue. We suggest you take advice from one of our recruitment consultants.

Can you guarantee me work?

We are unable to absolutely guarantee that we will find you a suitable locum position. However, because of the demand for qualified practitioners in certain areas, if you are fully qualified and willing to relocate there is a very good chance of success.

Will my employer be willing to train me?

Because you will be employed as a locum, your employer will expect a minimum standard of education and training. However, there may be opportunities for further training and continuing personal development, particularly in non-vocational skills. We offer a variety of courses through our specialist training division, Sanctuary Training.

How will I be paid?

If you are working as a locum, you will be paid an hourly rate on a weekly basis. You will need to complete a timesheet, which will be processed quickly and efficiently by our in-house team.

I qualified outside the UK. Can you advise me what I need to do to be eligible for UK employment?

Yes, we can advise on mandatory assessments and professional registrations for both EC and non-EC qualified professionals.

I'm only available for a few hours a week. Is that a problem?

Not necessarily; we may still be able to place you in a locum position. Please take advice from one of our recruitment consultants.

Are you an NHS Framework agency?

Yes, we're a preferred supplier to the NHS on the Crown Commissioning Service (CCS) framework and we're also on contract with NHS Scotland and HSC in Northern Ireland.

I have a criminal record. Can I work for the NHS?

It depends on the nature of the offence and the sort of work you want to do in the NHS. For all roles with direct patient contact you will usually legally be required to declare all criminal offences. Any such requirements will usually be stated in the job specification.

I'm over 60. Am I too old to apply for a locum job in the NHS?

No. The NHS does not discriminate against potential employees on the basis of age.

What does being a registered healthcare professional mean?

Many healthcare professionals are regulated on a statutory basis. To practise in the UK you are legally required to be registered with the relevant regulatory body, such as the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
