M3 launches new service to help recruiters navigate fast-changing healthcare market

The CV search service enhances the insights and data already available to recruiters on by encouraging doctors to upload a detailed CV that not only highlights their skills and experience, but also specifies the precise areas in which they are seeking work.

The CVs, which are provided in addition to a detailed job profile, enable recruiters to gauge the size of the potential candidate pool for a particular post and ensure that they are making a targeted approach.

As many GPs reject the idea of a partnership, and a consultant’s role is no longer the Holy Grail for many secondary care doctors, potential jobs could range from becoming a medic overseas or working for the Ministry of Defence to working in clinical research and pharmaceutical medicine or with private healthcare providers, as well as the NHS.

There are a number of factors behind the change in doctors’ career aspirations. For example, GPs are increasingly eschewing the opportunity to become a partner in a practice, due to concerns about the financial risks and the ever-increasing work-load while some doctors are lured overseas by the promise of a better work/life balance.

Andrea Thornton, Head of Career, said: & lsquo;There are big changes happening in the way doctors make career choices rather than climbing the career ladder or securing a job for life, many doctors want to apply their skills to alternative careers, move overseas or achieve a better work/life balance.

& lsquo;The CV search service enables us to tell recruiters exactly how many suitably qualified and experienced doctors are looking for a post in a specific area. This gives them a clear indication of the extent to which we can help them and ensures that they only purchase CVs that are directly relevant to their vacancies.’
