MAJOR INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION PLANS FOR MEDICAL RECRUITER YOUR WORLD
MAJOR INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION PLANS FOR MEDICAL RECRUITER YOUR WORLD Middle East will be key
While the recent Government Spending Review may hit some public sector recruiters hard, healthcare both public and private - is one area that is still very busy, not only within the UK, but also on an international level.
Your World, the specialist medical recruiter, already has established operations within the UK and Australia and is now planning new offices in the USA, the Far East and the Middle East in order to give a global service to both clients and candidates.
The Middle East is going to be key, says Managing Director, Tony Moss. In fact, we have just returned from a major trade exhibition in Abu Dhabi and have had some very interesting conversations. Not only has there been a recent report revealing that the number of doctors and nurses will have to double in a decade but also the Chief Executive of a major hospital said that recruitment was a problem that kept him up at night. Every Gulf nation is building new hospitals but with a well publicised lack of skills in the region, it is clear that staffing is going to be a real issue. There is a shortage in every single profession in healthcare, from pharmacists and speech therapists to emergency care specialists and cardiac physiologists a recruiter with access to an international talent pool is therefore going to be crucial
We already have a talent pipeline running between Australia and the UK for doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, says Moss. Our new operations will increase this global footprint further. With offices opening in the USA, the Middle East and Far East, our clients will have access to a truly international candidate pool. And for our candidates it means that they will have a recruitment partner who can manage their careers wherever in the world they want to work. Thats a pretty powerful proposition!
This international expansion is also leading to opportunities not only for exisiting consultants to travel internationally but also for new consultants to join a rapidly growing global business. Moss says that he currently has over thirty internal vacancies and thats just for the UK and Australian offices!
