Search Consultancy appoints head of medical for England
Search Consultancy has appointed Lisa McLean as head of medical for England.
McLean brings with her 20 years of senior management experience – 13 of those in health and social care – and will be responsible for managing a team of 50 staff across high profile recruitment campaigns.
Previously, McLean worked with Allied Healthcare and Newcross Healthcare Solutions and has overseen mergers, start-ups and business transformations, working with a wide range of clients and stakeholders to implement recruitment strategies.
In her role at Search, McLean will support the medical team across the whole recruitment process, and will also take a leading role in identifying new business opportunities.
McLean (pictured) said, “I already feel like I’m part of the Search family. I’m leading a really strong team with a great deal of experience. Everyone in the team has a specialism which helps us to recruit across a wide range of jobs.
“I’m looking forward to identifying new and exciting business opportunities and working with the Search team to match clients to candidates at this really exciting time for medical recruitment.
“Search has a really strong ethos which really sets it apart from other recruiters. We’re not a generalist recruiter; there’s so much sector expertise across the business, which helps us to match our clients with potential candidates across a wide range of specialisms.
“I’m excited to be taking on the role and will enjoy helping an already strong and successful team grow and develop.”
Search’s medical division recruits across roles including nurses, carers, support workers, consultant level doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and mental health workers.
Debbie Caswell, Search Consultancy’s managing director for England, said, “Lisa will be a great asset to Search. Her health and social care experience is invaluable and I’m sure that her background as a senior recruitment manager will bolster the talents of our existing, very talented team members.
“Her motivation and dedication will complement the team and will help us to grow our presence in medical recruitment across the country.”
